Book Review: Unbreakables

Title Unbreakables

Author Joe Pringle

Release Date August 22, 2012

Chris, Ben and Leon are qualified, willing and ambitious, yet unable to find work in their fields. Leon is tired of waiting tables, Ben can't take sitting at home with nothing to do anymore and Chris has had enough of his tedious, make-do, job. Just as they're about to give up all hope Ben arrives with a plan.

With all the skills and knowledge that typical criminals are without, Ben, Chris and Leon are more than qualified to be professional thieves. The score? Three large and rare diamonds that have been confiscated from smugglers, now belonging to no one. It’s a victimless crime.

Being inexperienced means that the three men run into many problems and more than just their skills are tested with each one discovering his own weaknesses. Technical, moral and emotional issues obstruct their plan, but will it stop them in their tracks entirely?

When options run thin, creativity kicks in.

Review

I wouldn't normally pick up a book like Unbreakables. The whole crime/adventure genre doesn't appeal to me very much. That said, after reading the blurb I was definitely interested in reading this book to see if it could change my mind about the genre. 

Unbreakables was a really good book. I was much more interested in it than I thought I would be. The writing and characters definitely kept me interested in the beginning. By the middle of the book, I was totally hooked into the plot.

I enjoyed the solid writing. The author is great at attention to detail and actually fleshing out his story. His characters are believable and his story seems very real.

The story did seem a little slow to get to the point in the beginning of the book. However, this was not enough to make the book unbearable. It was more of a minor annoyance than anything.

If you're looking for a solid crime/adventure book or, if you're like me and just want something different, I definitely recommend this book.
