Skilled author but very predictable story.
on 26 November 2017
The book kept me interested till the end but each twist and turn was predictable, like watching a movie, well made but you know the ending and despite hoping for a daring ending that offered something different, it failed to do so at pretty much every turn.
Spoiler ahead but you can try guessing how it will end?
The author is famous for solving mysteries and this time they were I.T problems, with familiar Latin and maths and very clever people that save the world with a few seconds left on the clock...
It is well crafted novel but it is predictable, and feels very superficial, nothing that will be remembered for long. Will anyone ever write something that isn't a rehash of countless novels and films?
