Review: Winner Take All
Winner Take All by Barry Eisler
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Lend this in March 2014 with Amazon Prime. Struggled with it, paused for a few months (too long), picked it up, still not really into it and read a few 1 (there is only 1 review with 1 star? unbelievable) and 2 star reviews and abandoned it.
Not enough action, and the character thinks too much. Maybe it would have helped to read the first 2 in this series - I did not. And regarding the other reviews, I guess not.
Some parts of it read like a collection of short stories. I could not detect a whole storyline and made the decision at 29% (per Kindle PW1 count) to abandon it. So, to shelf it at "read" is not entirely true.
Not recommended, 2 stars as the character is interesting enough to warrant the second star.
