Description

La cosa empieza con un conflicto entre El Chad y Sudán, dos países que a muchos nos costaría situar en el mapa. Allí chocan intereses de diversa índole entre EEUU por una parte, y China y Corea del Norte por otra. A partir de aquí, se nos presentan los diversos personajes que llevarán la trama hasta el clímax final. A saber, Pauline Green, presidenta americana, que no atraviesa su mejor momento matrimonial, y que tiene las próximas elecciones a la vuelta de la esquina, con un candidato republicano (una copia de Trump) que va ganando adeptos con cada barbaridad que suelta en los medios. Chang Tai, al cargo de la agencia de inteligencia militar china, un moderado al que los halcones del viejo régimen comunista ven como débil y proclive al entendimiento con los americanos. Tamara Levit, de la CIA, estacionada en el Chad y heroína ocasional. Y Abdul, americano-libanés, en una misión especial que implica la trata de personas y el tráfico de drogas. Todos estos personajes están bastante bien perfilados. Algo menos lo están el presidente chino, la presidenta surcoreana, y algunos secundarios que no dejan de ser personajes de relleno, y un poco de paja. No se lleva las cinco estrellas porque ha habido partes, que aunque finalmente me han gustado porque aligeran la parte de la guerra y la política, se me han hecho un poco pesadas, cómo la parte amorosa de la agente de la CIA, Tamara, al igual que la vida privada de la presidenta. También mucha parte de la política, se me ha hecho un tanto pesada pero es una parte necesaria para entender el funcionamiento de cada gobierno.

Es un libro lleno de acción, con varios países enfrentados, China, Corea del Norte, Corea del Sur, Japón, Estados Unidos.

I think that it’s going to be hard to top the excellent Kingsbridge Tetralogy and The Century Trilogy. Lurking in the shadows, the killer, using the moniker The Soldier, stalks their prey and waits for the dead of night. Blue and Whitt have a few chance encounters, though narrowly escape, with significant scars to prove it. When the bodies of the missing are found down a makeshift shaft, Blue and Whitt realise they have a killer within the mining compound, or at least someone close by, though the barren nature of the area, dubbed Never Never, makes it hard to fathom it is not someone with whom they cross paths daily. In China, a senior government official with vast ambitions for himself and his country battles against the older Communist hawks in the government, who may be pushing China--and its close military ally, North Korea--to a place of no return. Age Rating: Young Adults aged 14 and over. The characters are in high school and, while sexually active, this book is more of a thriller than it is a romance novel.

Seconda parte: Continuavo a ripetere di continuo nella mia mente “bello, originale, intrigante, scioccante, sto leggendo una genialata.” Los personajes están bien, aunque no en la medida que acostumbra Follett. Algunos son más potentes que otros. Kiah y Abbdul están entre mis preferidos, igualmente Tamara y Tab. En cambio no he conseguido empatizar ni con Pauline, la presidenta de EEUU, ni con ningún otro dirigente, estadounidense o chino, moderados o no. Supongo que era de esperar. Otra cosa en la que me ha hecho reflexionar Follett es que hay que tomarse muy en serio a quién votamos para que dirija nuestros destinos y mejorar todo tipo de mecanismos de control al poder. Perhaps because this story was largely written as one of Hoover’s earlier books, or perhaps because Tarryn Fisher co-wrote it, it should be noted that this is not a typical Colleen Hoover book. The fast-paced, spicy romance that made Hoover the viral sensation we know and love is not featured in this novel. For the first 50% I felt like I was reading book 1 all over again. Both of them still can’t remember. Both of them still confused. Both of them still trying to re-learn the same thing.

De todos los personajes la historia que más me ha gustado, aunque a veces parecia un capitulo de McGiver, es Adbul. Since this guide to Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher gives details about each of the three parts of the story, there are necessarily some spoilers. We also reveal the ending, but we have placed a warning in that section.

Kudos, Mr. Patterson and Madam Fox for this great novel. While the BookShot pulled me in and kept me wondering where Blue would go in her character, I can say that I really enjoyed this and would welcome more collaborative work down the road.His attempt to “humanize” some characters with some cheesy romantic encounters and cheesy dialogues was a let down. At least he did not try to write sex scenes. PS. I did listen to the audiobook narrated by January LaVoi, while I simultaneously read the book. I found her voice sleepy and speeding makes her voice too young and not very convincing. The last book ended with the disappearance of Charlie and this book predominantly of Silas looking for her while. The rest well… pretty much the same. This is super flat in spots, with Harry’s attitude being the only saving grace. The investigation into the missing miners is all-around boring and seemed to require a lot of filler scenes. So while it is a typical fast James Patterson read in terms of length and chapter size, the scene quality was pretty bland, creating a sedate pace. Silas, on the other hand, is on a mission to find Charlie while dealing with getting to know everyone around him for the second time since the book began.

Part 1 mostly focuses on these two characters earnestly trying to figure out what happened to them, why it only happened to them and no one around them, how they can get answers, and how to go about their daily lives without seeming suspicious.

Colleen Hoover® Signed Copies

Nuclear war, ‘mutually assured destruction’ - MAD. Thousands of lives lost during the middle section of this book, and a lot of that has to do with ego. Pauline Green is sensible, tries to come to suitable agreements, but those on the opposing side are not willing to be like her. As dad said, ‘mutually assured destruction’.
