Decent story line/plot. Lost points for limited vocabulary (especially in "part 1"). Winslow has the talent and ability to do better in descriptive narrative!
I tried, but no way could I finish. The story and characters didn't seem to have any meat - maybe this was supposed to be some kind of satire? Anyway, it just wasn't my cup of tea but in my opinion was all that well written either. From the other reviews it seems that I'm not alone and that this might be an author I will skip.
The Shield relocated to NYC with location references for authenticity.
This is the first Winslow book I have read. Each chapter tried to outdo the previous one in demonstrating how corrupt the entire NYPD and political machine is in NYC. Finished book but very disappointed in entire reading experience. Hard to convince myself to read any of his other books.
When Winslow is on point, The Force moves quickly and powerfully through crisp dialogue, tight plotting, and a compelling representation of one man's devolution from idealist through pragmatist through to corrupt, misanthropic cynic.
But at the same time, his propensity for overwriting is just too much for this novel. From the early pages of cliche-heavy, trying-to-hard internal monologue, to the final chapters which are so overwritten and heavy-handed that they leave the reader with a sour taste.
Returned, did not finish. Too much repetition from chapter to chapter. Could not get interested. Very disappointed with the book as The Cartel was a great book.
Winslow does it again. Another great read. Looking forward to more.
Fast-moving, action-packed, and fantastic! You may look at New York City cops and politics in a whole new way.
For the first time in quite a while I agree with the hype on the book covers.
Winslow's best book to date. Drama, action, suspense around questions of morality, justice, ethics, greed & truth.
It feels like there is a good deal of truth in this novel.
Over rated. Disappointing.
