One thought on “Shield of Straw

  1. Marie-Therese

    2 1 2 stars This short novel begins well, with strong characterization and a promising premise, but it quickly descends into superficial action that s clumsily drawn and feels oddly static despite the blow by blow narrative and race against the clock plot line Characters introduced after the protagonist are little than stereotypes the good cop and the bad cop the ambitious wannabe politician the manic pixie dream girl and genuinely unforeseen plot twists are nil In the end, this reads like a r [...]

    A thriller wrapped around most difficult life questions Is it really that difficult to be modestly satisfied What the hell am I really doing with these damn excel sheet oh, this one is mine Is life really worth it The Ecclesiastes and Epicurus would have said, just eat, drink and be merry.Depicted in straight forward words, the points drove home on target The hardest of hard boiled, the darkest of noir.

    I can see this as a movie The plot is easy, twists and turns that could keep one on a seat s edge There underlying moral question is how much is too much Would it be right to order a bounty that big just for a revenge Would it also be right to protect a scumbag and sacrifice others valuable lives To be honest, I kinda reminded to SWAT movie Yeah, the one with Collin Farrell and Michelle Rodriguez The ending may answered some of the questions, but personally, I still think it s on the morally co [...]
