The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Saturday book review

gone tomorrow book jacket coverI finished the latest Lee Child novel over 3 weeks ago now and its vivid imagery is still lingering in the background of my subconscious.

All his books revolve around the Jack Reacher character. A guy who embraces the drifter lifestyle in such a clever and believable manner that after you finish one of his adventures you're left with the feeling of what it might be like to live day to day with only a tooth brush, an expired passport, and an ATM card.

Gone Tomorrow takes place in modern day, post patriot act New York City, which is also the current home of the author. You can feel Child's affection for the city in his style and pacing throughout the story. I felt like I needed to be debriefed by Homeland Security after finishing the book. Its an intense, modern, narrative that will come close to knocking your socks off with the way its action filled mystery unfolds.
