Read full description of the books The Upright Man:This is what happens when you have certain expectations about a book. The book was well written, I thought the pacing was on par with other suspense/thriller type books and since it is the second book in a trilogy the characterization is there. So what's my problem? (Granted, 3 stars isn't a bad rating but I really felt like giving it 2 stars as soon as I finished.)
This was not the direction I wanted the book to head. How egocentric is that?
The two parts of the first book that I really enjoyed were the idea of The Straw Men and John Zandt and neither one played prominent parts in this volume. Zandt was peripheral, popping up here and there throughout the story. There was a moment where The Straw Men were discussed in relation to the lost settlement of Roanoke and the mysterious Croatoan but that was about it. This story was primarily about Ward and Nina and the search for the Upright Man.
So this is really one of those times where I have to take the blame for not enjoying a book. If I start a book with certain ideas but the author goes in a different direction, how can I blame anyone but myself?
