it was ok

Jeff Abbott’s PANIC is action packed, although most of the action involves violence, which includes a lot of head bashing and bloody gun and knife fights.

The action (violence) begins after Evan Casher, a young Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker, comes home (Texas) at the urgent request of his mother. From there, Evan goes to New Orleans, England, and Florida and encounters horrible violence wherever he goes.

Making matters worse, Evan can’t trust anyone, not even his own father. Throughout, everyone tells him that they only want to help him. Then, as soon as he does trust anyone—you guessed it—more bloody fights and head bashing.

And the funny (as in odd, not ha ha) thing about it: someone can have their head bashed into a wall one minute and be off on an adventure the next. Only occasionally do they complain that their head hurts.

Anyone I know who has had a head injury such as those described in this book would be out of commission for at least a few days. But not our heroes or villains in PANIC.

Obviously, I thought this book was silly, very silly. If this were a movie, it would appeal to high school boys.
