Today's review is on 40 Days 40 Nights by Wendy Cartmell
40 Days 40 Nights is the first book that I have read by Cartmell,
and though I loved the over all plot, I just could not get into it.
Perhaps if I had read the first book in the series I would have enjoyed
it more, perhaps not. 40 Days 40 Nights does seem to be a stand alone
Sgt. Major Crane has just gotten back to work after being shot and
is given a "babysitting" assignment. He is in charge of security for
the participants of the Olympic Games and Paralympics on Aldershot
Garrison. But this seemingly boring assignment turns into something
else all together.
Terrorist's are planning an attack against the "infidels." Their
target is the military base, and it is up to Crane to stop them. But
that's not the only thing he's worried about. Problems arise with his
wife's pregnancy. He already missed the final ultrasound appointment
because of work. Will he even make it to his own son's birth?
It is obvious that Cartmell did her homework; no pun intended to the
former teacher. Her knowledge of The Koran is fantastic, and I love
that part of the book is from the terrorist's POV. For me, the book was
just so L..O..N..G.. But just because I wasn't thrilled with it
doesn't mean someone else wont love it.
