Friday means Book club!

Despite my really crappy week on the work front which had the effect of not seeing much (ready very very little) of Himself or the kids I did manage to read a book.
How you might ask, was I reading i/o working or reading i/o spending time with my family. No! I'm shocked that you would even think that.  I read, on the bus, or train or while waiting for said bus or train.
And now, while I'm waiting for updates I made (3 hours ago) to the website (at work) to show I'm quickly blogging. Anything to keep me from screaming at the top of my lungs.

So what did I read? Thought you would never ask!

Zero Day by David Baldacci.

What is it about?

In Zero Day, David Baldacci introduces a new character, John Puller. In this the first in what I assume will be a series, military investigator John Puller is called to a remote, rural area where an entire family have been murdered in their home.

What did I think about it?

Firstly let me say, I love Jack Reacher of all the Lee Child books. And because I like Jack Reacher so much I like John Puller. Cause they could be the same guy. Ok, before Jack left the army.

Other than the fact that the main character was so much like Jack Reacher I liked the story line.  There were plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. The story moved along at a good pace. And, for an army novice like me it seems pretty plausible. In any case I read for enjoyment, not to figure out whether the author did enough research.

So  if you've enjoyed the Jack Reacher series, and wouldn't mind another character like him, get yourself a copy while I get back to work. O and don't forget to link up!
