did not like it
bookshelves: too-painful-to-finish

I scanned read through all the book. It's supposed to be a thriller, but doesn't have any kind of thrill. The author was more concentrated falling in love with the main character rather than focusing on creating a good thriller plot. It's this kinda of best seller that if you don't read them you save time. And what's up with his thousands of analogies and literature quotations that just don't fit? I felt like the author just wanted to show that he knew stuff. A total mess ... could have been a great thriller because the story is not bad. It's sad that this kind of books are the ones read by the majority.
