    1. It’s nice to be able to pick up a BookShot and commit only a few hours to a story that can—though, not always—take you away somewhere wonderful or exciting. A few cups of coffee and a little quiet time allows you to fully commit and see what James Patterson and his collaborator have to say. This story is anything but peaceful, though it reads so well that I cannot heap enough praise on it. Brendan DuBois shows that he is not only an accomplished author, but also that he has just enough fla [...]

    2. 3.5/5, a bit disjointed (I blame that on the bookshots' length), but that ending was amazingly savage. I liked the military thriller aspect of the first half, as that's not a genre with which I'm familiar.

    3. The EndNow this was a great story. I love Owen Taylor, I liked everything about him and his story. I really hope this is the beginning of a new series.

    4. Quite the ending on this one. I read it twice to be sure I was correct in what I read.

    5. Summary:     It's Owen Taylor's last op with his team before he retires.  They are the best of the best- top secret.  When they are betrayed, Taylor must watch each member of his team fall.  All that matters is finishing the mission- and getting answers.  Someone has to pay for the lives lost.        Finally free of the military, he is finding adjusting to civilian life harder than he imagined, especially since the neighbors aren't exactly breaking out the welcome wagon.  Can an [...]

    6. Quick novel about an elite armed forces unit sent into Serbia to take out a kingpin. This is Owen's last mission, after which he plans to retire to New Hampshire. The mission is fraught with trouble. After the mission, Owen retires. However retirement isn't quiet. Owen needs to try to fit into the community, but he is having trouble. The ending is a fine way for him to come to peace with this situation and his neighbors.

    7. Why is it so important for so many people to read fast? "It was a quick read." It's as if having to slow down just a bit to think about what you are reading is some sort of handicap. This thing read like it took the guys as little time to write it as it takes to read. Book Shots is James Patterson’s (with his writing partner) single-handed attempt to turn reading into a commodity. He has already done that with books quite a while ago. Evidently, the way it works is that he sits down and spends [...]

    8. Owen Taylor and his team are soldiers on a special, secret mission. If they fail, WWIII could result. Little do they know that the powers that assigned the mission also have betrayed them. Will they succeed, and will they make it out alive? Either way, this will be Owen's last mission.Owen returns stateside, turns in his weapons, so he says, and retires to an idyllic home in a small town. The home does not stay idyllic for long. Owen doesn't fit in, and a group from town begins to harass him. He [...]

    9. Another good quick read in the Bookshots format.This one starts off with the tale of a black-ops military mission in hostile territory where anything that can go wrong does go wrong and ultimately, only the hero is left alive.After a jarring switch in the narrative which leaves some questions unanswered, the action switches to him confronting the puppetmasters back in the USA who arranged the mission (and arranged for it to fail). Having got his revenge on the people who set him up, it then swit [...]

    10. Different, yet intriguingThe plot of this book keeps one on his or her toes. The book is short, but that doesn't diminish the power of the story. The ending is satisfying to a certain degree. There are some who should get their comeuppance who don't, but that's realistic, so I can't complain too much. I liked the thinking and reasoning of the main character, and that made the story more enjoyable. I'd recommend this book to fans of action/adventure, military, and special ops stories.

    11. GoodNot as great as I've read from James Patterson but it was still a good book. It was exciting and was full of a thrilling plot but at about 70% the book was essentially done. But then it kinda of dragged on until about 90% and then it picked back up again and ended with a good strong finish. As always it was a book worth reading. 📚 😊😊

    12. I highly recommend this Bookshot! I was dreading it because it began with a special op in Serbia. But the description of the setting was so realistic, as were the emotions of the soldiers, especially Owen, that I found myself entranced. The second half of the book at first seemed like a whole new story until Owen's thoughts blended the two. Excellent!

    13. ThrillingThis was a book that once you started it, you had to read until the end. It was impossible to put down. It kept me in suspense until the very end. Truly exceptional book.

    15. I liked the Owen character and this started off promising. But then it became disjointed and seemed like two separate stories. also, there were some holes in the story, I felt.I may read the second one to see if the gaps in the story are filled in.

    18. This was an enjoyable story. I hope there are more with Owen. I like this guy!

    19. Not a bad story, but the first part felt very American style and quick. Once the mission was over, the story seems to slow down and get some depth.

    20. Enjoyed very much. Was taken by surprise at the second half of the story when the main character retired. Good ending. Wonder if there is a second book on the way?

    21. Ok read, was fast pace, adrenaline pumping in the beginning. Once the mission was over , it became boring. Almost didn't finish the book, as a main character tried to adapt to civilian living.

    27. The endThis was a fantastic read, full of surprises. I truly didn't want this one to end where it did. It was nice seeing Taylor getting some payback.

    28. This is a great weekend read. The book is fast-paced, informative, and the ending made me cheer! The characters are well defined, and the reader is pulled into the action (complete with the rapid heart rate).
