review - Garden Of Beasts by Jeffrey Deaver

Garden of BeastsGarden of Beasts by Jeffery Deaver

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


This is the first time in all the years I have given up on a book (179 pages in). I couldn't connect with any of the characters, the story wasn't gripping for me at all.

I am sure it will appeal to someone, the story is based on a hitman going to Berlin to take out the next in line if anything happens to Hitler and the next in command. Apart from not connecting with anyone stuff like refering to a hitman as a button man totally got on my nerves.

I honestly can't comment on anything else as this is all I remember of it, still can't believe I have given up on a book but I just couldn't get into it.

It would be unrated but you have to give one on here so 1/5 it is

  1. The minute I read 'Hitler', I was sold, hahha. I love fiction that center's around this fellow :D

    Thanks for reviewing this one, I'd not have heard of it otherwise. Pity you didn't like it though. Still, they can't all be winners :D

    Have you read Fatherland by Robert Harris? It's set in an alternate reality where Hitler won and is really good but a bit of a Marmite book (so I'm told).

  2. I thought I would really like it as I am interested in things centered around that time but I just couldn't get on with it. Pm me your addy and I will pop it off to you when I am finished my run of shifts

  3. I have to say I'm not a huge Deaver fan. I've read two of his books and decided to never return :(
