I really cannot decide how many stars to give this one....
R- 2? maybe?
I'm not sure if it's me or the book, you know?
I'm nine freaking months pregnant..... probably not a great time for a complex thriller without much in the way of happy endings.
Milo used to be a "Tourist"-- a CIA spook basically. Suddenly old cases and details start surfacing, forcing him back into that life.... the life that nearly killed him.
Not a bad story. It would certainly make an interesting movie... kind of Bourne-ish. (According the the about the author, Warner Brothers have optioned the rights-- apparently putting George Clooney in the lead role. I can't see that part. For one, Clooney's too old. The oldest Milo is in the book is 37 or so. Weird choice.)
Anyway, a movie would have to tighten things up.... which I think it needed.
But again, I'm nine months pregnant and I've been reading mostly fluff and Nancy Drew, so what do I know? My brain has turned to mush.
No, really. It has. :)
What do you do with a book you can't decide about? Read it again another time? Write it off? Ask others if they've read it? It's gonna bug me.....
