Little Sister Book Review


””



Title: Little Sister
Author: Giles O’Bryen
Published: March 1, 2016, Thomas and Mercer
No. of Pages: 484
Cover Price: $15.95 Paperback, $1.99 Kindle



Every once in a while a book comes along that is a chore to read. The characters are unlikeable, the plot is boring, and the book is full of unnecessary profanity and violence. Little Sister is one of those books.

Giles O’Bryen has created a protagonist, James Palatine, who is a computer whiz and has created a prototype surveillance device that is invaluable to both governments and criminals, especially terrorists. The device, IPD400 is dubbed “Little Sister.” Natalya Kocharian, who is known for her sexual favors to seal deals, has sold the device to an unscrupulous arms dealer who in turn has sold it to a terrorist group, and must get it back. She is interested only in the money it will bring her, and cares nothing about what this device can do if it remains in the wrong hands. Palatine is kidnapped by the terror organization that has the device because he is the only one who knows how to work it, and M16, as well as other government entities are calling for it to be out of enemy hands. Palatine, of course, is superhuman and is able to escape and kill several in his quest to recover the device. His character is what men’s fantasies are made of, rather than being a viable person.

The book jumps from one violent act to another, and is very difficult to follow. Since the characters are not the type most of us can relate to, many readers may find they don’t really care what happens to them. Some of the characters are a bit interesting, but not interesting enough to keep anyone on the edge of their seat. Unfortunately, the book is quite boring, and may not be something that readers will want to follow to the end.

Little Sister may appeal to egomaniacs who fantasize themselves in Palatine’s position and who like profanity, unnecessary violence, and a protagonist who is able to accomplish the impossible.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
