Goodreads then you will know that this one is going to be confusing.
|yes I felt like this during this book|
This book did not give me feelings of the kind that a reader of Romance usually likes. Of course, I did not expect to get gushy feelings from this book, because it is not a romance, but I didn't expect what I'm left with either. The feelings I experienced and still am a couple days after finishing this book are:
Leave it to a man to make me feel these things!
This story is a mystery/adventure tale, so I'm going to TRY not to spoil too much of it:
|The main character does not look like Cary Grant|
Then it occurs to you--"NO! Stealing is wrong!"
We are seduced into liking this charming character because he is the protagonist and we tend to feel that we are supposed to like him no matter what he has done.
|Mindfuck or advertising lie or excuse to put Fabio here?|
CJ West you are an evil, evil man.
I was, however, unsatisfied with the ending and I will tell you why: because it is one that will stick with me. I will not be able to forget it.
When I was complaining to my hubs about it, he said, "Oh, so it's like that movie Sommersby we saw, the one where if it ended the way YOU wanted it to, you would have forgotten it and moved on. Instead it ended in a logical place that made sense and therefore is the kind of story that will stay with you and make you remember it."
YUP. JUST LIKE THAT.
The thing that is the most frightening about all of it is that the entire thing is plausible. This is not some look into the distant future where the technology is foreign to us. This is a look at the present; the technology is all here and could be utilized. It is the commonplace details in the story that make it so frightening.
THIS COULD HAPPEN.
