I don’t like to rate a DNF but Goodreads doesn’t give readers another option if we want to leave a review or comments. As I finished Chapter 15 I realized that:
– I neither liked the protagonist, Benn Bluestone, nor did I care what happened to him
– up to that point, there wasn’t one character that I could identify with or had any empathy for
– maybe worst of all, I couldn’t think of a single reason to keep reading past Chapter 15.
Thrillers and action/adventure are favorite genres and I’m not squeamish nor am I repulsed by graphic violence and/or sex. Depravity is a horse of a different color though. But as long as it’s in measured doses and not gratuitous, I can deal with it. However, what I read of “The Extraditionist” left a bad taste in my mouth and I couldn’t see my way to reading another 84 chapters.

I’m an avid reader and an RYT 200 certified yoga instructor. My reading is mostly for pleasure; thrillers, adult, historic, literary and women’s fiction, romance, and the occasional non-fiction, usually political in nature. My book review blog is http://ReadMyLips.home.blog. As always, I welcome your comments on my book review blog, be they positive or negative. I also regularly post reviews on Facebook as SandraGarlandHardy, Goodreads as Savsandy, on Twitter@savsandy and occasionally on Instagram as sandragarlandhardy.
