Audiobook. Gideon, the lead character in Gideon’s Sword, is a smart, creative, and driven person. Regardless of the situation, the man’s ability to squirm out of danger is amazing. No spoilers in this statement, you’ll figure that out within a few pages. Given the superman qualities of the character, in both his thought and his behavior, the reader may find themselves rolling their eyes, or like me, riveted to the adventure. There are reviews all over the board, from terrible trash to five star brilliance. Frankly, I don’t understand the negativity. It’s not brilliant literature, but a fun mystery, a man on the run from a bad guy, triumphs and failures. Worth the read, if you enjoy the genre, in my opinion. Not sure what the word Sword in the title references, though.
