Matthew (funkygman007) | 1005 comments This one is going to be tough for me to discuss because it is book one of a trilogy and remembering which events occurred in which book might be difficult! :)

Ha! Another trilogy? Did you like this one more then the Diogenes trilogy? I'll make sure to do spoilers and explain it well.

Yup - another trilogy! Um, thinking I probably liked them about the same.


Alan | 5532 comments Mod
I liked the Diogenese trilogy much better. This one felt like it was at least a book too long, but mainly the last two books.

Good to know and thanks Alan for the feedback! 😃

Ginger | 3489 comments I got to the start of Ch9 last night! Wow! I love this writing. I'm already pulled in. Preston/Child is just so good at what they do.

(view spoiler)


Matthew (funkygman007) | 1005 comments Of all the books in the series, this was the one where I had the least idea where it might be going through the first few chapters.

That's why I'm trying to explain as much as possible in my spoiler. :)


Terry | 4979 comments I only just made it through ch3 last night, but quite the start! Your update makes sense now, Ginger. I was surprised (view spoiler)

And, of course, you always explain so well! :)

I just looked at my review of this one again, and I now remember that (view spoiler)

SWEET!!! Ahahaha! I can't wait to read about it.

Matthew (funkygman007) | 1005 comments What is great - and I hope this is not saying too much, but some of the mysterious stuff you are already seeing (view spoiler) Once you start this book, you are committed to the trilogy! :)

But, I have a feeling that you guys don't mind!

Terry | 4979 comments Your updates are great Matthew! Definitely keeping me excited to read all of these. And you’re right, Ginger! Addictive is a good descriptor.

I just got up to Ch18. I agree Terry! (view spoiler)


Terry | 4979 comments I’m already behind, Ginger! I hope to make some progress tomorrow.


Ginger | 3489 comments Terry wrote: "I’m already behind, Ginger! I hope to make some progress tomorrow."

No worries Terry!! I'm enjoying my other reads right now as well. I'm loving reading Pendergast again. It's just so easy and suspenseful to read!!

I totally agree! Something about the writing style ( and of course great stories) make these some of the easiest books to read.

Ginger | 3489 comments I'm stopping at the end of Ch47 since it's a good place to stop.
Holy shit, this book was easy to read this weekend Terry. Don't worry about trying to read fast. I've got two other books that I'm reading this week so you should catch up soon.

Don't read this until you've caught up Terry!

Sound s good, Ginger. Glad you are enjoying! I do need to learn to read faster, haha.


Matthew (funkygman007) | 1005 comments I was so scared (view spoiler)

It's interesting to see all the speculations on the twists in this book so far. Having read the whole series, the plot progress is so crazy and unexpected, if anyone can figure this out before the end, I would be surprised.

It's like, I show you a picture of a monkey eating a banana next to a banana stand and I ask you how the monkey got it. You might say he stole it or the propieter gave it to him. But, if the twist on the picture is as crazy as this series, the real story is that he is a genetically modified monkey who used a burner phone (so he couldn't be traced) and ordered a banana to be delivered to him by drone.

I may have gone to the movies with my 10-year old son to see ant-man, and I might have played an Xbox game with him this morning, and it's possible I was distracted by the World Cup soccer... both days...so many distractions, it's no wonder I'm over-committed on buddy reads at the moment....😂🤓

That sounds like a great weekend! How was Ant-Man & the Wasp by the way?

It's been fun (although unproductive), for sure. And the movie was good. It wasn't quite as good as the first one, but Marvel is doing it right and we both liked it. Worth seeing.


Terry | 4979 comments And I've only just made it to ch21. On the cover of the version I'm reading is a picture of an empty birdcage. I'd wondered about the meaning of that, especially with the way this started, but I'm starting to see why now.

Great! Yeah, Marvel does a great job with all the movies. I have not been disappointed yet when they started years ago with the first one, Iron Man!
By the way, I started reading The Haunted Forest Tour today. You will love this one Terry! It’s an excellent creature feature book. I hope it’s good the whole way through.

They get into it! You’ll love where this “gmo monkey with the banana that was dropped by a drone” goes! What Matthew said...🤓😉🤣

Ha! That was a crazy decision. WTF indeed. 🤔🤣
