Robin Kirk's Reviews > Boy Nobody
Boy Nobody (The Unknown Assassin, #1)
This was engaging, "thrilling," interesting, as a boy assassin filters into other people's lives and kills with an injection from a pen. So why not a total thumbs up? I felt like I was being manipulated for the soon to be released film. This read way too much like the pitch for a blockbuster (as it will be, with Jaden Pinkett-Smith rumored to be in the running for the lead). I want something different from a book than a movie. Of course, both can be equally good, but they are good in different ways. The book, for me, has to have more nuance, more depth, more exploration of character and ideas. The film can be rock-em, sock em, or whatever, but it's fundamentally a different aesthetic experience.
