Review: Pictures at 11

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

At first, I had my doubts, as the book seemed slow to start. However, after making it about 40 pages in, the action and suspense started kicking in. The obvious comparisons to “Network” not withstanding, I found the book to be quite entertaining, if not a little predictable. It’s one of those stories that you know how it has to end, and you kind of get frustrated with the characters because you spot stuff before they do, but it still manages to throw in a surprise or two and does a good job of maintaining a healthy sense of tension and doubt. It absolutely reads like a movie, which is oddly poignant given the message of the book.
