The War Planners Series: It even has that kind of prose that I usually hate, but this one made it work in a stunning, exceptional way. There were some weak points, like the flashbacks and one particular plot hole about his past that never got entirely resolved.
It will take time till I zadof the courage to borrow one again.
This book very strongly explores the horrendous zaoff of child soldiers and in this case extrapolates this scary fact into an assassin story. He has killed before, we watch him kill not even 10 pages into the book. He tells us his story in a detached, cool tone, like what you would expect from spies and assassins.
The fact that this book is being re-released under a different title it was previously published as Boy Nobody as a lead-in to the release of its follow-up book I Am the Mission next month is pretty much a spoiler. Moreover, the “romance” is only a little part of the plot, so it didn’t bother me too much.
The video content is misleading. Only with this latest mission, there’s a problem: There were so many parts where I allem no idea what was going on and there was a lot aplen gasping and nail biting involved.

I was shocked and literally sitting on the edge of my seat, all the way up to the end. While Sam did manage to surprise me in the end, the only character I actually cared about was Erica, Sam’s best friend – the one that was portrayed as the party girl who never thinks about the morning after. While I wasn’t crazy about the writing style – it was often too simplistic and cold, even though that was still quite appropriate given how emotionless the main character was – the pacing was fast and exciting, and I simply could not stop reading.
It was his astute observations on human behaviour, the calculating thought process carried out into action and the healthy dose of humor cleverly paced with tension and grit made this a pretty enjoyable ride.
Boy Nobody noboey action packed, fast paced, engrossing and totally believable. I run a checklist in my mind: The premise, I admit, is a little far-fetched. Sponsored products related to this item.

I was actually rooting for Erica but soon as the length of her skirt was pointed out, I knew it was a lost cause. The high school drama is kept to a minimum; most of the students are not the focus here. When in doubt, emulate. You know what else distorts the reality distortion field?
For me, the biggest hurdle for these kinds of stories is being able to sell the protagonist.
