About book Schneller Als Der Tod (2010)

This book was pretty good; if 3.5 stars was an option, I'd give it that.The main points off are because of the writing itself and the ending. For the former: there are times he's crystal clear, and then there are times he drifts in to ambiguity. Ambiguity isn't necessarily a problem, but it made it hard to understand certain key scenes. It didn't drift off entirely but enough to be uncertain of the goings-on (I don't think this was a deliberate stylistic choice). It was also hard to tell if I'm supposed to like the main character, and I don't think that was deliberate; the characters empathy is not developed and it's hard to tell if he's a genuine (good) person. For the latter: I re-read the ending a few times...I'm willing to suspend my disbelief, but I thought the ending was kind of outlandish, even for this book's premise.Finally, it was a bit prone to cliche; which is fine. This book was more brain candy than anything else; a good catch at the airport bookstore. I do recommend it. (E-Lib) Stacy's pick for FBB. I didn't really care for this book. I feel like it had a lot of potential as a story, but the execution just didn't do it for me. I especially hated reading about how inept everybody at the hospital was. It might be true, but I don't like hearing about it. The scene in the freezer where he makes a knife out of his shinbone is one of the most messed up things I've ever read. Could barely get through it.

Do You like book Schneller Als Der Tod (2010)?

2.5 stars. Very quick read, and not bad, but way too 'action movie'-y for my tastes.

good fun read and stays with you longer than expected

Violent romp with heart. Too much fun.
