A Big Disappointment!
Jeffery Deaver is one of my favorite writers. I was really expecting that Garden Of Beasts was going to be one of my favorite books by Deaver yet. Based on the description of the book, I felt that its plot, involving a hit man hired to assassinate one of Hitler's top leaders during the time period of the Olympics in Nazi Berlin, contained all of the ingredients that for me make an exciting thriller. Unfortunately, this book was more of a mystery than a thriller -- with the mystery being how could Deaver write a book that had virtually no excitement for almost three-quarters of the story, and when some action did occur it was largely predictable. The characters were not particularly well-developed and several of them, including the main character, were not very credible. Further, the dialogue was a bit corny. Lastly, while I was hoping that the ending would be satisfying enough to enable me to give the book at least a 3-star rating, it was not to be. I found the ending to be very unrealistic and disappointing. If you are a big Deaver fan like I am, you might be inclined to disregard this review and plunk down your money to be able to read his latest work. If you do, I hope you won't be as disappointed as I was.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
