The great thing about Dave Eggers is you never know what type of book you’re picking up. All of Eggers’ plots, settings & characters are very different from each other. His current book is no exception. From the very beginning of the book, you are thrown into the situation. At first, you do not know where you are or who is talking, which makes sense for the situation. The book is essentially the conversations between 30-year-old Thomas & his hostages. The dialogue drives this story. The main character, Thomas, kidnaps people that have had a significant impact on his life (and also someone he feels could have a significant impact on his future). As you read this book, you start to question some of your own morals.
It’s a quick read. The audiobook is great, since different characters are played by different people, making characters very easy to keep track of. If you don’t mind a little strong language, this is a very intense, thought-provoking read.
