This is the only book I have paid for since getting an iPad, and I chose it because it had tons of really high ratings both on goodreads and Amazon. After the first few chapters I couldn't figure out why so many people like it. The main character is not in the least bit likable. He is a mean bully and knows it. Then, the story becomes so unbelieveable that you know there is going to be some sort of crazy twist at the end. I admit to not being able to predict said twist, but still wasn't surprised by it. Also, I am not a fan of military movies, tv shows or stories so found a large part of the book difficult to read because the main character thinks in terms of being a squad leader in WWII. I finished the whole book, and it will likely stay on my mind for a few days, but I cannot say that I enjoyed it. It is well written and decently told, just not my cup of tea.
