Lee Child: Nothing to loose

Author: Lee Child

Title: Nothing to lose


Source: Darmstadt Public Library (Stadtbibliothek Darmstadt)

Pages: 531 (paperback)

Reading Time: 2 days

Language: US mainstream  (but some US cultural knowledge might help to fully enjoy the book)

Rating: ** ( out of 5)

A Thriller with an unusual theme: A former US Army soldier hikes from one town (“Hope”) to another (“Despair”) and gets thrown out. Not willing to take this easy, he sets out to discover, why he is unwelcome and discovers a dead body in the desert.

But instead of explaining anything, the body disapears again and everything turns even more mysterious.  Things remain like that until the very end and this keeps tension up – but not to the level of urgency (its possible to stop reading, but not easy). In the end the solution turns out in a way thats very unusual for a thriller – but thats good and still more believable then many mor conventional plots.

The author dares to include his views about current political issues (like the war in Irak, Pentagon politics or coporate responsibility) which really makes the story realistic.

Hello world!

“In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”

Douglas Adams,
Das Restaurant am Ende des Universums, 1980

“And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, one girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything. ”

Douglas Adams
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, before the above
