plot Once I finally got into the book a few chapters I started to connect with a few of the characters Once that happens for me I tend to have an easier time sticking to the book There werelaces in this book that became too in depth and detailed than "I Needed Which Seemed "needed which seemed drag things out a bit I also think that this is much a man s book than a woman s However even with the length of the book I found that I got interested in it toward the end The further that I got the that I really wanted to finish it But I wanted to finish it because I was invested in the characters and I wanted to see how things ended for them Not because I wanted to know what happened The last 100 ages of the book were definitely better than the first 100 but I didn t like the end I really feel like it left me hanging I believe that Aaron intentionally left the ending hanging since there is a follow up in the works but I don t know that I m invested in the story enough to ick up the seuel That being said I still liked the book It took me a while to read I wasn t giving up sleep because I couldn t ut it down but it was good enough to I wasn t giving up sleep because I couldn t ut it down but it was good enough to me interested I didn t ever think about utting it down or uitting altogether I just felt that I was interested in what happened to the eople than the missing Semtex I guess that says a lot for character development huh Despite an early Corazones solitarios plot hole that nearly derailed my reading neither a significant amount of stolen Semtex nor the murdered soldiers responsible for its transport are missed and some inaccurac.
