    You, a highly intelligent student at Yale University and the son of two well respected attorneys, one of whom is a federal judge, claim you were persuaded to commit a criminal act of this magnitude within a few days of meeting this young woman Do you really expect me to buy that Just how dumb do you think I am Not as dumb as the author expects us to be, it seems The plot repeatedly stretches credulity well beyond breaking point, without offering even the flimsiest of lifelines to readers willing to suspect disbelief At least three times the central character, when pressed on how he could possibly have done something quite so stupid, replies with a I guess you had to be there But we were there, and it didn t help The author s job is to show us how it happened what caused Zack to make his fateful decisions But instead all we get is a bland I ve thought it over As crazy as it sounds, I m going to help you , that would have made me throw the book across the room had I not been reading an electronic copy on my laptop.The book is ful...

    I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.The first few chapters actually annoyed me as they were so totally unbelievable that I nearly gave up but I persevered.It did get better as the story moved on but remained unbelievable and, at times, laughable by it being so unrealistic but I did like the style and pace of writing and although it took me a while to get to like Zack, I did eventually although his n...

    I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways This review may contain spoilers.Ideally, I would have given this book 3.5 stars It was an entertaining read, but I did feel that there was a bit too much telling rather than showing.I did like Zack as a character, despite the fact he was a bit too innocent He did come across as one of the nice guys and there were times I did feel a bit sorry for him.The title could have applied to a lot of what happened in the book, which I did think was quite a clever thing to do.I did also like Zack s relationships with the other characters I felt that some of the interactions could have been extended to have the writing showing the development of said relationships, rather than just summarising how conversations went and the feelings developed.I have to say, there wa...

    Zack s Choice is a fun read because the author had me completely discombobulated for the first few chapters I am just as soundly conned as the main character, and that hooked me quickly into finding out what really happened With a concise, one event after another style, Mr Gilleland accommodates my need to know in spades and I pretty much inhaled the tale in short order Zackery Gresham is living a planned yet perfect life Pre Law at Yale, with a beautiful girlfriend whom he has known since high school, this perfect son of a lawyer and federal judge will finish at Yale then move on to Harvard before joining his mom at her law firm But right now, Zack s just taking it easy, riding his Harley across the southern states, heading leisurely back to his parents in Oregon Everything was perfect as usual, until he runs into Bobby Smith, a teenage boy who turns out to be Robbie, a teenage girl and the Chosen One Tasked by God to take a holy relic off the Vatican s hands in order keep an army of demons from gaining access to this world, Robbie s parents have already been spirited away by the demon s human agent Escabar, and she really needs Zack s help Zack chose to help, and when he got arrested by FBI agents and found out the Chosen One is really named Darby Fitzgerald, his perfect life pretty much went to Hell Zack has one choice left, and that choice will determine whether he can still get a good life despite already losing the planned and perfect one Mr ...
