Reviewed by Boaters Book Club:

Many initially did not want to read it but actually found it an enjoyable and exciting read, although we did not like the use of the F word and the use of special and technical language especially the mnemonics. However, the details of life were considered interesting and that they did reflect reality to some extent. 2 members had the opposite views to above.

Good pace. Exciting! Some loved the violence – the revenge. Some didn’t like the style. Very readable.
