Doesn't even deserve one star.This author is on my red lined list of never again writers list. Too many killings, bad language and very detailed sex.
How does one assign stars or ratings to such a book. Candy for the mind with double the normal dose of sugar. The book has no character development, no intellectual stimulation, precious little humor**, but goodness what a rush. I stayed up all night to see what was around the next corner.An operative, Carmen, whose real name we don’t know but who has numerous identities has had her cover, and that of her controller, Jacob (although we’re not really sure what they’re professional relations [...]
Fast, fun, and furious. The kind of book you probably won't be able to put down between chapters. There were a few typos and proof-reading misses, but it wasn't significant and wasn't enough to pull me out of the story. The switches between first person POV past tense (for Chandler), third person POV past tense (for Fleming) and third person POV present tense (for the bad guys) was a smidgeon distracting, but then I really don't like reading books written in present tense, and that may be why. A [...]
Flee by J.A. Konrath and Ann Voss Peterson is a non-stop thriller on enhanced steroids with the wildest combination of sexy women, nasty women, nasty guys and enough weaponry to start a war. This has to be the fastest moving novel I've ever read---indeed, the pacing of my own work in progress picked up speed just by osmosis! Konrath's own ever popular female star Jack Daniels makes a sweet cameo, but the heroine of this sexy beast is another female named Chandler, who finds herself in the unenvi [...]
This is a hard one to rate. The story is intriguing and action packed with suspense. However the execution of that story could use some work. Written in first person and it is very difficult to distinguish between the voice for the two main characters. At first thought you might think that is acceptable, but they have such different personalities, motivation and character that it just seems absurd that you aren't able to tell the difference until a name is dropped. Loved the cameos by Jack and H [...]
A pulpy, implausible, page-turner. Complete mind candy of the nonstop action variety. Seven identical twins with the same fingerprints? A cell phone that can launch nuclear weapons against anyone in the world? All of the action happens in about 24 hours? The lead character gets her shoulder dislocated first thing then spends the rest of the day fighting with people and falling out of 100-story buildings? Not likely, of course. Impossible, really. But if you just want to give your brain a little [...]
A little far fetched but enjoyable.
Book Info: Genre: Spy ThrillerReading Level: Adult—explicit sex sceneRecommended for: Fans of high-octane thrillersTrigger Warnings: violence, murder, sexual assault, statutory rapeMy Thoughts: I read the first Jack Daniels book several years ago and really enjoyed it. I've been slowly building up my library of J.A. Konrath books ever since, and am a bit aggravated that I have to read this book before I completed it and was ready because of the new Terms of Service with Vine running me on Thre [...]
I wish I could go higher than 3 stars hereI had high hopes. I don't dislike the book but it get's a 3 by what might be called the proverbial skin of it's proverbial teeth. I mean it could have been much better. I liked Konrath's other series pretty well. Here while the idea is good there are some.gious flaws.The book in many ways put in mind of a comic book. The characters verge on being superheroes and super-villains. I'll give the book this, there is plenty of action. I mean I love a good acti [...]
"Flee" is one hell of a page turner, but not without flaws. An early subplot involving an escaped convict struck me as a bit contrived and sorely lacking in effective resolution. It was too extraneous to the overall plot and was an unnecessary addition that, in retrospect, appears to have been created simply to help the main character get out of a jam. In some ways, it seemed as if the writer's had begun the story with one idea, but changed tracks as it evolved and couldn't quite figure out how [...]
A surprisingly good book. Granted, the characters were a bit flat, the plot was kinda flimsy, and the jumping from first person point-of-view to multiple third person storytellers did give the book an air of frustration. Push all that aside and gosh darn it, this book was a true thriller. I caught myself a few times actually gasping at the things Chandler was able to pull off. I never knew of Konrath's other literary character Lt. Jaquelyn "Jack" Daniels. Now that I do, you can bet I'll be obtai [...]
Flee by J. A. Konrath and Ann Voss Peterson is the second collaboration between these two talented authors.Combine all the action of a Bourne movie and a Jason Statham flick, make the action star hero be a woman, and you've got Flee! Now in the Bourne trilogy and The Transporter franchise, the heroes occasionally have slower-paced scenes of rest and recuperation. What a bunch of sissies! The heroine of Flee could teach them a thing or two about fighting, advance preparation, and just plain stayi [...]
I received a complimentary copy of the book for review, and would first like to say thank-you for the opportunity to read it.Basically the plot line revolves around a highly trained female special ops type spy on the run from assassins. The action is literally non stop from start to finish. Violent, raw, sexy and gut wrenching all at the same time. It will really get your heart pounding.
I love this author but wasn't sure I would enjoy this book. Boy was I wrong! This book is a fast-paced, amazingly exciting read. I didn't want it to end. I really think this book would make a great movie.
Nice spy novelAction, intrigue, and sexwhat more can you ask for. Very good and never a dull moment at all. Chandler could be the next Jason Bourne or maybe the next james bond. I can't wait to dive into the next book in the series.
This story would have served better as a movie. Totally unbelievable plot line, but some parts are riveting nonetheless. Chandler is some strong character. The 4 stars are just for her.
Setting: Chicago – streets, alleys, subways, Lake Michagan, restaurant on 90th floor, 5th floor apartment, bunker, gym, apartment,Theme: survive, solve who’s after her and why, stop the nuclear bomb,Characters:Hydra project: 7 identical septuplets, with identical fingerprints – unheard of; girls became Hydra project and given code names of 7 different mystery writers; the government placed them with different kinds of parents… in Clinton era, project lost funding… our hero’s parents [...]
This book wasn't my cup of tea. I like to read about women spies, so I gave it a shot butJust no. Action packed (literally, there's no time that the pace slows down), full of gory violence and foul language and some explicit stuff, and I was still as bored as I was disgusted. I ended up skimming the last half of the book just to see if there was any redeeming ending, but no. I could have told you what would happen, it was that predictable. The characters were boring; they were so cookie cutter t [...]
Pure adrenaline. That's what this book is about. Chandler is an elite covert operative, and generally a badass chick. Her cover gets blown in spectacular fashion, and she has to go on the run to figure out what's happening. It turns out that what's happening is pretty crazy. The secret government agency she works for is up to some strange stuff.There's no time to slow down and think. There's no time for a lot of plot or character development. Just go, go go! Overall, I think it works pretty well [...]
and this installment Chandler finds out who her Handler is and get to use their help once the bad guys figure out who she is. this was a good job keeping the storyline and characters on a straight path. can't wait to see what happens to Chandler in book 2
Not enough story developmentrrely written action sequences written fast paced one after the other after the otherLost interest in the book. Just lots of torture and gun fights and fantasy sequences that became redundant and hard to want to read.
Couldn't put the book down, it was that GOOD!A thrilling ride from the beginning and doesn't quite slow down till almost the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for the next book.
STOPThis author is really impressed with their knowledge of guns. The story line reads like a comic book. I can't believe there is a sequel.
Listened to the audio version - finished it quite a while ago so I don't remember much other than it was suspenseful and had sound effects!
Fast paced thriller with a lot of action, blood and guts.However, there are no chapter divisions in this book - makes it hard to find a stopping place so the reader can go to work. LOL
Lots of ActionI did like Chandler's character, but her adversaries were very unrealistic. I gave 3 stars because the book was fast pace and contained lots of action.
WowIt doesn't take long to read this, I couldn't put it down, wonderful right right until the end! A MUST read
Loved it!Lived it except the unnecessary sex scenes. Wish writers could understand it doesn't move forward the story! Anxious to read next!
Breathtaking. Phenomenal. Two thumbs up!Wow! This was such a ride faster and more thrilling than a supersonic bullet! If you thought The Da Vinci Code was jaw-drop-worthy, wait until you read FLEE! It'll keep you on the edge of your seat.This could be your emotional reaction when you're through reading.FLEE's protagonist is an elite super-spy known only as Chandler. According to the book’s blurb, she works for a government agency so secret only three people know it exists (guess who they are? [...]
Do you like "popcorn" movies? This was like a "popcorn" book. So much action from beginning to end. I never had a chance to catch my breath. If you are looking for some good escapist entertainment, and you don't mind some gratuitous sex and violence, this may be the book for you. I look forward to the next book in the Chandler series. Good fun!
