The pace is all wrong. All talk and no descriptors (she said, he motioned, their eyebrows raised) makes for an uneven narrative. Pages of dialog with no descriptors only works for soliloquies. People don’t simply sit still when talking.
Then there is the magic tech. Too handwavium and used too much. Sleep teaching is a time honored trope, but this novel overuses the concept.
I personally got bounced out when the MC took possession of his new real estate property and discover a mysterious bunker. Basic realty concept is that the seller has to make the buyer aware of all structures on the property *and* any hidden defects they are aware of. Mysterious bunker with no available key should have been disclosed at least during signing. Especially if a bank is involved!!!
The only thing missing was the retired Navy SEAL/Marine Scout Sniper/Sooper Green Beanie.
The beginning of the book had potential, but it did not develop well and ultimately crashed.
If you LIKE Good Old Boys and their Snappy Comebacks, then boy howdy are you in the right place. Chances are they will just annoy you like they did me. Not Recommended.
Maybe I read too many books, maybe it's just me but...
There is some good. The basic idea is actually interesting, and it starts off OK.
There are a few main characters in this book, Bob, Nikki and John. There are a few other characters in the book, mainly Max, Lyla and a few others.
However whenever a conversation happens in this book, it really sounds like the characters are Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, and Bob... There is essentially no difference, they are all the same. Same tone, same sarchasm, same "quick witt"... same... Plus the dialogue doesn't include anything but dialogue. No tone, no emotion, no movement... just, words that all sound the same. Usually, authors will add things le tiredly, sounding weary or angry, teasin, laughing, while sitting down, perplexed... you know... some kind of adjective indicating the tone of the conversation... nope. Not this author. Everything is the same tone, the same speed, the same... it's all Bob and Bob always feels the same.
So that gets boring fast...
On top of "sounding" the same, all the characters are the same age and look the same. No seriously, I haven't got a clue how old any of them are, except the old lady. There is literally NO character development in this book... ZERO. They all have no motivation, no history, no individual character traits, they're all Bob and Bob only exists so that he can do the next thing that comes up in the story.
Add to that that there are numerous errors and non-sensical things.
Like, dogs can hear sounds that we can't in the higher range... OK, sure.
Turn off the generator to stop it generating infra-sound... oops... NO, that's actually LOW, not high...
No, museums do not keep things they are convinced are fake just for fun... those go in the trash.
I could go on and on but there's no point.
If you like this book... good for you.
The basic premise is interesting
The delivery... not.
It has basically zero literary value and I just can't believe there are 11 of those...
Over all, im really hoping the subsequent books are better but i am very hesitant to waste money on them even though i know id enjoy them if they were improved more.
