I’ve been out some time. Focusing on my sore neck rather than reading books. Now that I’m better, I went back to achieving my November goal. The next book on my list was Last Shot, the final part of the Tim Rackley series. After the great Troubleshooter, I was hoping for a great finish that could mount up to the spectacular Orphan X series. Here’s what I think of it.
I’ve been reading quite some Hurwitz books this year. The reason is that I had already read one or two before I found his Orphan X books. And they are awesome. That made me look towards a different series written by the same author. The Tim Rackley series, named after the main character, has shown potential but hadn’t yet gripped me like Orphan X did.
Yesterday, I was able to continue doing what has been on my mind for quite some time now. Instead of reading parts of a series spread out, when I want to, I’m now trying to read it sooner. That way I get the full experience of the series.
For that reason, I read The Program. It’s the second book in the Tim Rackley series I started reading a while ago. As I already pointed out, this series seems to lay out the foundation for Hurwitz’ Orphan X series. Which is fantastic, by the way. But now, are you ready? To… GET WITH THE PROGRAM.
I’m just kidding. I got no program for you. What I do have is a review!
After reading Orphan X and The Nowhere Man from Gregg Hurwitz, I decided to look at other series he’s written. And so I came along the Tim Rackley series. Now, I’ve always liked the books from Hurwitz. Even before I read his amazing Orphan X series. Here’s my review of The Kill Clause.
Today, I finished another Gregg Hurwitz novel. I read The Nowhere Man, which is the second book of the Orphan X series. As in the first book, Evan Smoak finds himself in an incredible, unbelievable adventure. What starts with as little as a napkin holder, soon turns into the most dangerous mission The Nowhere Man has ever faced. Ball bearings within ball bearings.
Wow guys, it’s been a while since I wrote my last post. I’ve been busy and I’ve taken longer books to read. But enough with those excuses. Time to give you something useful.
Don’t know if you’ve heard but I’m a Gregg Hurwitz fan. I’ve read The Survivor and You’re Next and had this immediate feeling of “I need to read more of this”. So, I put Orphan X on my “Want to Read” list. I finished it last week. It looks like Gregg Hurwitz has done it again: what a masterpiece.
