"Pandora's Temple" by Jon Land Book Review

I finally have my review done.  Be sure to read more information about the book here.  There's a giveaway there, too!

Pandora's TemplePandora's Temple by Jon Land
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When it comes to thrillers, sometimes I really like them, and there are other times when I am just not too sure.  This is a book that is very well-written, and I found the story very fast-paced.  In fact, once I started it, I really didn't want to put it down.  There was never a dull moment, and I was even able to keep the characters straight.  Sometimes I feel really lost when I read thrillers, but this one was fairly easy to follow.

I could have done without the profanity, but since a man wrote the book (I know, I'm sexist), and it is a thriller, I can be forgiving.  I am glad there were no sex scenes nor overly descriptive violence.  Yes, there was violence, but I could handle what was being written.

There is one portion of the book that just didn't seem to make sense.  I struggled to set aside the reality I know and go searching for the lost Pandora's temple.  And the ending really did make me roll my eyes.  I know what the author was trying to do, but I would have preferred a different explanation for the happenings in the book.  But maybe that is my realistic side kicking in.

Except for that, this is one of the better thrillers I have read, and I can recommend to those of you who like thrillers (or even if you want to try a well-written thriller, this may be for you).

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
