One of the Worst Books I Have Recently Read
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 9, 2017
I found the third book in this series both monotonous and repetitious, and also degrading in that Akart monopolized upon the hillbilly caricature of Tennesseans throughout the novel. As a Tennessean, I find this insulting because, while we have our fair share of red necks, just because some of us live rurally doesn't mean we are hicks. Everyone doesn't talk like they haven't been educated, and not all farmers wear overalls, spit tobacco, and have missing teeth. So there's the first part of my critique. Otherwise, I question how the GPS in their protected cell phones in the supposed Faraday trash can set-up worked. I understand how Alex's downloaded music would play, but how would the GPS work? Additionally, the author used the same tactic over and over and over: drive, stop before coming to a bridge, look for baddies, etc., then proceed unless ambushed. The only enjoyable scenario includes the Coach and his football team; that was great, hence the two stars. Lastly, Akart capitalized on using well-known Tennesseans and making fictitious family members up, and it didn't work for me although it was no skin off my nose in his doing so. It just didn't really work, just made his story cheap. So on to the next book so I can get past through this series that I made the misfortune of purchasing without adequately checking it out.
