Four Boundless Stars
Seasoned To Kill starts with a down on his luck ex-con living his everyday life, trying to make ends meet, and find a way to pay the rent. After scanning the internet and applying for any job he can do, he goes to the local coffee house where an old acquaintance offers him a job he can’t refuse. He can’t help but wonder if it’s too good to be true. He contemplates and can’t decide whether to take the job or pass; ultimately, his desperate need for the money wins.
This is a well written book that will brings readers into his thoughts as he struggles through the ups and downs of his life. I felt happy for him, I felt empathy, and sometimes I found myself asking “How stupid can you be?” This story is full of twists; some were surprising, but I also saw a few coming. The flow of reading was fast one minute, but slows the other. It took me a little longer to get through this one than most, but in the end, worth it.
Overall, I liked the story and rate it with 4 Boundless Stars.
