My first Peter May novel - and I struck gold.
Excellent.
A little silly near the end, but will forgive him for that as it was otherwise great entertainment and a real page-turner.

I really wanted to enjoy this...but didn't.
The repetition wore me down.
The characters were not ones I had any empathy for.

John Le Carre - this was like walking in treacle.
I did not enjoy reading it but persisted as I hope it will has educational merit - but if he wasn't as high brow as his reputation I would have thrown it in the bin!

This took me a long time to read and I came back to it after several months, having got bored.
But I am glad I did - very humorous and sad.
Some wonderful characters.
Maybe I should have read it all in a oner - but it was very much a game of 2 halves...

The Midnight Line by Lee Child
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was my first Lee Child novel - and I was quite looking forward to it.
Sadly I was very disappointed - little action and to be honest I was bored reading it.
Maybe not the best Lee Child to start with (?)- but I won't be in a hurry to read another.
