  • *NOTE* Endgame: The Calling is a puzzle, and any review of it must take that into account. However the review copy of the book I was provided with contained a placeholder puzzle, so as not to release the actual puzzle early. Thus I won't be reviewing the puzzle portion at all, only the book itself. Please judge this review accordingly.

 

The first thing that strikes me about this book is that the author uses really short sentences. Seriously. It's annoying. Very annoying. Unfortunately, it got on my nerves so much that I was unable to finish the book. I think the concept is good, and, no doubt, the hype surrounding the prize will help it to sell. It just wasn't for me.
