True Fiction (Ian Ludlow Thrillers #1) Reviews
“True Fiction” was my introduction to author Lee Goldberg. I had never read any of his previous books (nor seen any of the television shows he had written), so I had no idea what to expect.
My first reaction was that this book was an over-the-top, totally unbelievable story written by a new author (hadn’t yet seen Mr. Goldberg’s extensive bio) who had spent way too much time searching the Internet for conspiracy stories. As I continued to read, it dawned on me that the author had penned an incred ...more
Derivative and weak
Skimmed 2/3 of the book and didn't miss anything. If this was supposed to be humorous it failed. It was frustrating that a "editor" liked it enough to make it a recommended book for the Amazon read first program. That's 3 hours of my life I won't get back, but at least it was free.
Ian Ludlow is hoping to work on his next thriller while on his book promotion tour. He sees an airliner crash down on the beaches of Hawaii and realizes he may have caused the event. Years before he wrote scenarios for the CIA showing creative methods terrorists could attack the US. Suddenly he realizes the two near death accidents he had are the CIA trying to kill him.
I enjoyed the first half but I felt this one lost its way.
Action packed and hilarious. This line says it all, “The books were about Michael Sang, an ex-priest turned assassin and restaurateur, who was an expert in all the martial, erotic, and culinary arts.” Don’t miss this witty, tongue in cheek page-turner.
A story inside a story of which neither one were interesting. I will not read another book from this author
Highly credible fiction
Given the state of affairs in the world currently, there's not one concept in this book that I found unbelievable.
It hurts to say that, frankly, because good fiction should be at least partially incredible. This IS good fiction, but all too credible.
Well, except for the half man, half plant cop...
Fast pace, likeable and detestable characters, an all-too-believable plot and viola! A great story.
Excellent theatrical spy espionage novel
I loved this book. It kept me guessing, had a bit of conspiracy theories (which I love) intertwined, a bit of spy chase scenes and CIA assassins, and a bit of sarcastic character dialogue. All was well done by the author. Enjoyed reading this on vacation.
Fun to read.
If you're looking for real true fiction book, this isn't the one. Silly, somewhat eccentric story. Dog walker is his driver, successful writer is being driven around for book signing events. His terrorist scenario he wrote during the CIA event becomes real, and he's being hunted. Couldn't stop laughing in some parts.
