Book Review - The Last Jihad by Joel C. Rosenberg

The Last Jihad (The Last Jihad, #1)The Last Jihad by Joel C. Rosenberg
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I got these out of our local library on a whim, the title was intriguing and the geo-political implications were looking better on the book blurb.

Once I started with the book, it almost became a chore to finish it. The characters are not well etched and as I write this review I have already forgotten what the book was all about.

The book opens explosively with a kamikaze plane attack on the POTUS motorcade but it sort of writes itself down from there with conveniently forgotten characters and not too much of a redeeming plot.

Sorry to say so but the series lost its ability to hold interest to me after this one.

A forgettable read.

  2. Too bad, Gopal. Hate it when I'm excited by a book and I'm let down.

    1. Yup, but then that happens rarely, so I guess I can be magnanimous in this occasionally and not hold it against the author
