Power Down by Ben Coes

3 stars
R- 1
Violence, language

This thriller, while interesting, kind of fell flat for me.

Between lengthy descriptions, repetitions, and contradictory paragraphs, what should have been a fast-moving plot got mired in words.  I really think it could have been 50, if not 100, pages shorter.

Which kind of makes me think it would make a much better movie.... since a movie would trim that stuff down a ton.

If you like Tom Clancy, you might give this one a try... but I ended up skimming a lot of it.
