Reading Rampage Continues: The Tourist Vol 1 by Lucas Bantner

The next book in my reading rampage is The Tourist: The Immutable Volume 1 by Lucas Bantner. It is a interesting story with a great opening. So good in fact, I was hooked right from the beginning. Banter writes with great visceral detail when describing both the situation and Ian’s dreams, though some of the violent imagery in the police station comes off a bit shocking.

The only misgiving I had at all, is not really a complaint. It took me a while to find all the main characters sympathetic–however  this works for the story.  While I did not have an emotional connection to him, Ian is completely absorbing. I wanted to know what happened to him and why it was happening. Teresa did a few stupid things in public which launches her storyline. Once again, this works in the course of the story. So while I didn’t feel they were necessarily sympathetic, I did want to know more about what is going on. Because the plot was instrumental in my enjoyment of the book, I don’t want to give anything away.

Due to the violent nature and language, definitely a book for grownups.
