Like a bad habit.
This trilogy is like a bad habit. I don't care for it yet I keep reading. And will read the last book since I already bought it. The storyline is good. The characters okay. The biggest problem is Tanner's almost addictive need to rehash old events. We got it the first time! Every time Alma comes up we have to read about their meeting in Brazil. Every time McQuade's education or skills are brought up we have to read about how misunderstood he was and get a copy of his school history. This goes on and on and on with several events, people, emotions, etc... It totally kills the flow of the story. It also makes McQuade seem like the biggest and not so bright pansy, poor me, whine, whine. If Tanner and the editors could fix this very large problem Tanner would be comparable to authors like Rollins or Robinson. Right now he seems stuck between the big time and "I think I'll take a stab at writing." I apologize for the rant. I usually try to write positive yet honest reviews. My self-imposed obligation to read what I buy has become quite vexing with Tanner.
