The Travelers by Chris Pavone


Goodreads Synopsis: It’s 3:00am. Do you know where your husband is?

Meet Will Rhodes: travel writer, recently married, barely solvent, his idealism rapidly giving way to disillusionment and the worry that he’s living the wrong life. Then one night, on assignment for the award-winning Travelers magazine in the wine region of Argentina, a beautiful woman makes him an offer he can’t refuse. Soon Will’s bad choices—and dark secrets—take him across Europe, from a chateau in Bordeaux to a midnight raid on a Paris mansion, from a dive bar in Dublin to a mega-yacht in the Mediterranean and an isolated cabin perched on the rugged cliffs of Iceland. As he’s drawn further into a tangled web of international intrigue, it becomes clear that nothing about Will Rhodes was ever ordinary, that the network of deception ensnaring him is part of an immense and deadly conspiracy with terrifying global implications—and that the people closest to him may pose the greatest threat of all.

It’s 3:00am. Your husband has just become a spy.

I started this book at the end of April and finally decided today that I wasn’t going to get any further in it.

Maybe this was a case of the book just not being for me, because I don’t think that The Travelers is badly written. I just found myself terribly bored. It’s supposed to be a thriller right? But I found myself sitting and yawning, then putting the book away and letting it sit for days before I guilted myself into picking it up again. I tried. I really tried. I gave this book over a month to capture my attention, and it just didn’t do it. I felt no connection to the characters.  There were no thrilling reasons for me to turn the page, there was just me sitting and praying for it to be over.

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books, in exchange for a review. I gave this book one star on goodreads.
