Yesterday's Hero (Arthur Wallace #2)
I'm in love...alas...Mr. Wood isn't my type, of course, I'm probably not his either. Of course, I only love him for his fiction. It would only be a marriage of convenience. I'm up to my nose in hyperbole, but this is a very good book. I feel for the characters, their frustration, their anger and their sadness. I even feel their hatred for the new boss. It's rare to find a book like that; one that communicates those emotions so well.
It's kind of cool to save the world. Of course, when this happen...more
If you haven’t yet read No Hero, that would be recommended before trying Yesterday’s Hero. Wood does very little to bring new readers up to speed. I think that you would probably be a bit lost.
There's also what I can only call "Hollywood human biology". You know, where people get repeatedly flung through the air by massive explosions and smashed into concrete walls, or beaten up, or dragged along the ground, and each time they're in pain for about 30 seconds and then carry on? Instead of being hospitalized for six weeks with ruptured internal organs and multiple fractures, and then unable to use their limbs properly for a year?
Again, the author had me chuckling through out, as I kept turning the pages... Comments like, "But we saved the world yesterday!" "Yeah, but that was yesterday..." lol. Snarky and I liked it.
