    I received an arc copy for honest review from the Publisher and Meryl Moss Media Thank you so much to them for giving me the opportunity to read Goodbye Paris and share it.I found Goodbye Paris to be a very average read It didn t really grip me For an action thriller, it was kind of a slow read I m not getting what makes Pono Hawkins so great or desirable I m not getting why all the women want to sleep with him Why he would have three girlfriends at once.I feel like this story was kind of I received an arc copy for honest review from the Publisher and Meryl Moss Media Thank you so much to them for giving me the opportunity to read Goodbye Paris and share it.I found Goodbye Paris to be a very average read It didn t really grip me For an action thriller, it was kind of a slow read I m not getting what makes Pono Hawkins so great or desirable I m not getting why all the women want to sleep with him Why he would have three girlfriends at once.I feel like this story was kind of bogged down with tangents It didn t stay with the action It didn t thrill me When it did have action and chase things, it was fun, but it tended to get a little stagnant during the down time.I thought it was a really interesting take on Paris as it is now I don t think it s going to appeal to very politically correct readers because of how it illustrates how Paris has been taken over by Muslim Extremists, how the government really does nothing about it The author seems very knowledgable of all these places and history, but he sometimes has a dull way of writing it.I m glad I got the chance to read Goodbye Paris It was a good read It might not be everyone s cup of tea It offers a really interesting perspective of the takeover of Paris The ending isn t exactly triumphant or hope filled, because the problem is still there Just one of Hydra s heads has been cut off and many will grow back.Thanks to the publisher and Meryl Moss Media for letting me give it a read for honest review.BOOKCITEMENT LEVEL 3.3 5Not Bad

    There are a lot of things to hate about this book, enough to give it at most two stars However, after persevering to the end, I found that it got better in the final quarter of the book, and I ended up feeling it was not a completely irritating waste of time First off, the lead character is terribly juvenile His sexual proclivities are annoying His socio political positions are immature and often conflicting His inner dialogue is often random, incoherent, and full of non sequiturs and disas There are a lot of things to hate about this book, enough to give it at most two stars However, after persevering to the end, I found that it got better in the final quarter of the book, and I ended up feeling it was not a completely irritating waste of time First off, the lead character is terribly juvenile His sexual proclivities are annoying His socio political positions are immature and often conflicting His inner dialogue is often random, incoherent, and full of non sequiturs and disassociated vignettes He is overly and annoyingly defensive and aggressive every time someone says anything he thinks belittles him The historical asides from this surfer dude are totally dissonant To top it off, the book would definitely benefit from a different editor who should have caught and headed off a lot of these problems and a run through the Grammarly app would have helped

    The book is heavy on islamophobia, which might be off putting to some readers However, it is appropriate in the context of the plotline, which involves a suspected plot by Islamic terrorists to crash a French plane and or blow up the Eiffel Tower and or set off a nuclear bomb in Paris A significant part of the storyline is the increased Muslim presence in France, including the radicalization of Muslim youth in certain parts of Paris and other French towns and the reluctance unwillingness of th The book is heavy on islamophobia, which might be off putting to some readers However, it is appropriate in the context of the plotline, which involves a suspected plot by Islamic terrorists to crash a French plane and or blow up the Eiffel Tower and or set off a nuclear bomb in Paris A significant part of the storyline is the increased Muslim presence in France, including the radicalization of Muslim youth in certain parts of Paris and other French towns and the reluctance unwillingness of the French government to acknowledge and properly address the threat of radical Islam Pono Hawkins, ex Special Forces, who has starred in two prior books, is asked to come to Paris by Mack, a friend from his Special Forces days who now works for the CIA, who informs him that Mustafa al Boudienne, an Islamist terrorist who was thought to be dead, is actually alive Pono is the only person able to positively ID Mustafa if he can be found When Pono arrives in Paris, he quickly discovers that the situation has gotten much worse, as Mack has been abducted and Mack s wife, Gisele, will soon be taken as well Pono is working with the DGSE French equivalent to FBI , which is headed by an old friend, Thierry, while also reporting to the local CIA Section Chief, with whom Pono has a very negative history However, the suspected terrorists seem to always be one step ahead and it becomes apparent that people high up in the French government are trying to prevent Pono and his allies from being successful.This was an enjoyable book The plot is interesting and timely the Notre Dame fire is mentioned and incorporates current international events and concerns While there are some aspects of the Pono character that I do not care for, overall he is an interesting character and one the reader wants to succeed I like that Mr Bond has chosen to create a series that utilizes recurrent characters There is a good supporting cast and plenty of action and intrigue Definitely worth the read.I received a review copy via NetGalley

  5. Tom Burkholder says:

    In the book Goodbye Paris, author Mike Bond writes about Pono Hawkins, who has been in the Special Forces and is now working for the CIA, kind of.This was a very choppy read and confusing at time There was lots of drug use and language as well as it was very anti Islamic I would not recommend this book I received a copy of this e book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Mike Bond is my favorite author and I jumped at the chance for an ARC through NetGalley Mike is a lyric author and his books are nothing short of works of art The descriptions are not as intense as some of his earlier works, but he still provides a beautiful narrative that evokes images of great detail This is Pono s third outing as the main character, and in this story it is muchabout him and his relationships with his brother soldiers I could not put this book down once I started rea Mike Bond is my favorite author and I jumped at the chance for an ARC through NetGalley Mike is a lyric author and his books are nothing short of works of art The descriptions are not as intense as some of his earlier works, but he still provides a beautiful narrative that evokes images of great detail This is Pono s third outing as the main character, and in this story it is muchabout him and his relationships with his brother soldiers I could not put this book down once I started reading it, and even at the end I had to take some time to savor the story I won t rehash the plot, but the style of writing flowed and supported the action every step of the way Do yourself a favor Buy this book and set aside some time to read it

  7. Doug Yonce says:

    I ve always enjoyed Mike Bond novels for their excellent attention to detail and well designed plots As a result, I jumped into this book not having read previous entries in the series I was not disappointed With non stop action and strong character development, Bond s take on terrorism is addictive and timely.

  8. Patricia Moren says:

    Another enthralling story by Mike Bond This one is based in Paris and centres around the Islamist infiltration of the city Some great characters and suspense and tension all the way through Great read.

    I can tell that Mike Bond is a poet His word choice and the way he structures the narrative have that rhythm and flow, which makes the book all theinteresting to read, especially given its 1st person viewpoint That 1st person narrator is another strong point because it limits how much we can know about what s really going on and keeps us as off balance as the main character, Pono The action was also well done, written so as to be clearly understood what was happening.My reservation, wha I can tell that Mike Bond is a poet His word choice and the way he structures the narrative have that rhythm and flow, which makes the book all theinteresting to read, especially given its 1st person viewpoint That 1st person narrator is another strong point because it limits how much we can know about what s really going on and keeps us as off balance as the main character, Pono The action was also well done, written so as to be clearly understood what was happening.My reservation, what keeps me from giving the book top grades, is its bleak worldview It s so relentlessly defeatist and negative about Islam and France and, well, everything Yes, things are bad, but so bad This is illustrated, in my view, by how Bond portrays the fire at Notre Dame, which in the story happened before the action begins As an aside, I m not sure if this was quickly inserted after the real fire or it s an incredible coincidence In Bond s telling, Notre Dame was destroyed by terrorists, burned out, demolished into a stone shell, all of its timeless artistic and spiritual glory gone So depressing But in reality, Notre Dame was damaged, badly, but all of her most important treasures survived and remain for us today The world of Pono Hawkins is a sadder one than ours.Another ding, from my point of view, is the unnecessary amount of sexual detail I m no prude I m a married dad of five I don t need the sex to be described to me if you tell me they had sex Otherwise, it s just indulging adolescent male fantasy.The characters apart from Pono were fine, albeit they didn t stray too far from stereotype The aggressive female cop, the weary bureaucrat, and so on.Nevertheless, I still give the book four out of five stars because the premise was interesting and the plotting and action were compelling enough to keep me wanting to come back to the book and find out what s next, how it will be resolved, and who lives and dies

    This is the third book in the Pono Haawkins series I didn t have a hard time initially getting into this book I was surprised by the reference to the destruction of Notre Dame since that was a fairly recent occurrence.This is pretty straight forward action adventure thriller but I wasn t captured by the main character or cared to root for him That made it a slog to get through this title All the references to Islamic terrorists made my eyes roll up into my head I do enjoy action adventure b This is the third book in the Pono Haawkins series I didn t have a hard time initially getting into this book I was surprised by the reference to the destruction of Notre Dame since that was a fairly recent occurrence.This is pretty straight forward action adventure thriller but I wasn t captured by the main character or cared to root for him That made it a slog to get through this title All the references to Islamic terrorists made my eyes roll up into my head I do enjoy action adventure but don t really resonate with how the bad guys were portrayed here I am sure this is absolutely believable but it was over my head and that fact alone made me not want to keep reading on I persevered in order to put out this review but I wanted to DNF this at 16%.This has a strong first person narrative and everything really is there to make a first rate action adventure book but it just wasn t in my wheelhouse I can t really explain why Maybe if I saw this on the big screen it would makesense to my brain The story had good flow but the strange chapter breaks seemed to throw me off for some reason.If you love action adventure, definitely pick this book up It will give you all the feels It does that well I just couldn t connect with the main character and that fact alone made it fall flat for me.I received this as an ARC Advanced Reader Copy in return for an honest review I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title
