(Book) Paranoia by Joseph Finder

57

I grabbed this book to read a little bit of fluff. I liked The Firm and I thought this would be similar. The plot is fantastic and I had high hopes for the book. I believe it would make a fun and exciting movie, but in written form it fell a little flat. Too many cliches, too many “this went just right” moments, just too many of a lot of different things. It was an enjoyable read and I did finish it because I wanted to see if what I thought would be the ending really was (it was, you can see it coming a mile away if you’ve read many thrillers).

Having said that, it’s a book worthy of a read when you are between heavier books. Just don’t pick apart the few plot holes or the writing style. It could still use a bit of a polish, but I’m glad I read it.
