the spy who came for christmas

This book was in my “to read” pile. I grabbed it because it was short and it is Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. It was a spy story and that part of things was pretty interesting. I wasn’t 100% on board with the ending–it felt a little forced (and not likely to happen).

The book was written by the author who wrote the “Rambo” series of books. Not that I’ve read any of them (or seen the movies for that matter), but I thought that was an interesting tidbit. Apparently he’s quite the action novel writer.

My rating: 4/5

In other Christmas news, we went out to dinner last night (with my Mom’s side of the family) at the Homestead Inn in Elton. It was nice to see everyone again, but the menu, food and service at the restaurant were less than impressive. They’d be a good candidate for Restaurant Impossible. But, I digress.
