Of the three books so far, this one is the worst.

First off, it has nothing to do with the movie. So forget that. Second it has more twists and turns than a plate of spaghetti. And it is as improbable as any. The story takes place 13 years after the first book. Jason is 50, and is doing things and tasks that he couldn't have done when he was 37. The story is obviously the last book in the series, and you can tell by the way that it is constructed that it was meant to be the last. So I am a bit concerned about the next three, where exactly does the story go after this one. The plot and scenes are forced and convoluted to the point that I only finished the book so that I could be done, not because I was interested in how the story ended up. At some point I didn't care anymore. A sad state as the first one was compelling and entertaining enough that I didn't want to put it down because I wanted to see how it ended up.
