Hard Road (Jon Reznick #1) Reviews
It is always a great pleasure to discover a new author, or one new to the reader. J B Turner was new to me, but this will not be the last of his books that I am going to read. “Hard Road” is an excellent thriller, reaching from Maine to Florida, and points in between. The hero, Jon Reznick, is former Delta force, now doing contract work, mostly assassinations, for the government.
I don't like spoilers, so I will not describe the plot of the book, but I will say that the pace of the book is relent ...more
I won this book in a goodreads giveaway. Goodreads encourages, but does not require, winners to review the book.
First of all, this is book 1 in a series and I will be reading the rest of the series. I like this hero. He seems to be more like a real person than a lot of thriller protagonists. Of course, he's the hero of the book and it IS a thriller, so he does things that most people wouldn't do, but between his feats of derring-do, he seems to be mostly normal.
I also like the ...more
This is another series where I've bought the first few before starting any, on the suspicion that it will be my sort of book, based on the reviews, so I will want to read the rest and so might as well get them while they're cheap. While this was not all that original (ex-Special Forces hunk with a tragic past and a vulnerable daughter, who contracts as an assassin for a secret government agency, finds himself on the run,not knowing who he can trust, after a hit goes wrong and the body count moun ...more
Decent thriller. No complaints. Nothing extraordinary either.
J.B. Turner's Jon Reznick is the type of guy who can shut out most of the despicable things he has to do before they can haunt him to such and extent that they either ruin his life by emotionally crippling him or causing him to lose a much needed edge in his chosen profession. And that's likely a good thing because Reznick's job is killing people. Mostly dirt bags. "Hard Road" introduces Reznick somewhat two dimensionally. He's hired to do a job a little out of his comfort zone. OK. A little arm ...more
I purchased this as an audiobook and am a bit disappointed with it. Neither the writing nor the narration were my cup of tea. I found the language a bit terse and the cussing seemed arbitrary and forced at times. I cannot tell if it is due to how the book was written or how it was interpreted by the narrator. I found my mind wandering during the narration and frequently checking how much time had passed. Since this was the first book in a series, I assume and hope the remaining books were better ...more
Plot was okay. Writing not so good. There was too much detail given to what people wore and what a room looked like and not enough detail in the actions of the characters. It was very predictable and the ending was somewhat disappointing.
IMO, there are much better books of this genre out there.
