I was recommended to this book by Goodreads recommendations. I thought the book seemed really interesting and sounded like something that I would like so I decided to check it out from the library. The beginning of the book up until the death of Tom Kristoll just seemed slow to me and I became distracted from the book. I had to sit myself down and make myself read it. All the action in the book towards the end did make up for some slowness and confusion on my part in the beginning, but it still turned out to be far from the book that I thought it would be.
