I love burn notice. It is a witty show with action and excitement. I found this book by chance and read it in two days. Michael is the narrator and the author does an outstanding job of capturing the voice of every character. I highly recommend for a fun read. Can't wait for another in the series.

The book is, of course, written as a story that might be seen on the show. The plot is new and includes the backstory of Michael Westen's past if someone hasn't seen the show. Points that have occured in the show are alluded to as well to bring anyone up to speed in the life of this spy in his hometown after his burn notice. The three main characters provide rich conversation with a sarcastic overtone and not a few very humorous one-liners. Their interactions also serve to deepen the persona of each character. I often laughed out loud when reading this book and if you like the show, I believe you will love the book!

Being a fan of the "Burn Notice" televison series, I am quite pleased with Goldberg's novelizations. He perfectly captures the tone of the series as well as the personalities of the characters involved. Reading these books is like watching an episode of the series, but with more time for details and depth.

I enjoyed the book as much as the show, I love the characters. The chemistry between Fiona and Michael is electrifying. The story line is captivating and full of energy.

For those of you feeling the burn of the mid-season dolrums, "The End Game" is a perfect filler for all Burnies until Michael Westen resumes his quest to uncover who burned him and how to get back into the organization. The writing is perfectly suited to the TV series, where you can hear Jeffrey Donovan's voice-overs perfectly in your head, as well as capturing the dialogue of Mikey and the other characters perfectly. I am thrilled that USA is allowing allow most of its flagship series to be expanded in book form.

I like the Burn Notice TV show and have followed the entire story arch. Two paragraphs into this book I found myself wishing that nook books could be returned. I have not illusions about the character Michael Westen being any kind of a religious person but his character in the show never comes across as being in any way antagonistic of people who hold religious beliefs. In the first two paragraphs of this book Westen is portrayed as someone who views people of faith as "the enemy." I also felt like I was reading a rough draft.
