“Where was it ever promised us that life on this earth can ever be easy, free from conflict and uncertainty, devoid of anguish and wonder and pain? … The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive, to have it make some difference that you lived at all.”

Book Review: True Believer

March 31, 2022 Leave a comment

 

True Believer: A Thriller (Terminal List Book 2) by [Jack Carr]

I started out by rounding this book up from 3.5 stars to 4, but then I remembered how the author redacted his own book with sections of the text blacked out in my Kindle edition, which I guess is an annoying reminder that Jack Carr was a real-life Navy SEAL and subject to Department of Defense censorship.  The book is loaded with lots of tech goodies and realistic tactics, but the plot is borderline “Come on, man.” Should have read the first book in the series, but that story seems even fantastical. (3 of 5 Stars)
