"They can be that specific?" ~ pg. 190
Because the book was published in 1998 (twenty whole years ago), some details are a bit dated. It caught me off guard when fax machines were being used regularly and cell phones were not primary means of communication. One thing that is still relevant today though are bullets. Lee Child writes about guns, ranges and bullets like he invented firearms. The jargon was not overly used or hard to understand. If anything it adds to the suspense and action.
"Like we said, there are maybe sixty million Americans ready to be tipped over the edge." ~ pg. 355
My Gawd do I enjoy a thick ass paperback. I kick up my feet on the ottoman with a cold refreshing beverage on my left and a tasty snack on my right. Even though Die Trying is well over 500 pages long, I finished this book in a few days' time. Surprisingly, there was no unnecessary dialogue or description. Absolutely no filler! Every chapter was vital to the story. This takes great author skill and good reader patience.
It is going to take me quite a while to catch up in this series; Die Trying is only book 2 out of 23. I am sooooo tempted to read out of sequence but since I own most of the paperback editions, I will read this series at my leisure. Any bookhearts care to join me?
