'Getting It Wrong' by 'G Younger' is a very interesting and compelling story. The tale starts out as Hunter reviews his life, the good points and the bad.
Hunter it seems was an assassin for the government. Then when he gets involved with a way to relive his previous life, with a time machine, correcting the mistakes in his life. Working to better the world and save his sister too in the process.
As far as the story goes, it is well written and enjoyable. I think G Younger has started another great series. As I write this review this series is on hold while another piece of his written library is finished, that being 'Stupid Boy - Junior Year'. 'Getting It Wrong' is a great story and worth reading.
G. Younger apparently enjoys making me wait. I am waiting for the next installment of "Stupid Boy", I am waiting for the next installment of "Little Tony" and, I am waiting for the next installment of "Getting it Wrong." I am not a cheapskate, unlike some reviewer I could name (manddscot)who is obviously proud of it. On the other hand, where we have fingers instead of toes, his reviews are spot on, even if his scoring system is weird. He complained about this story because the rest of the trilogy is not yet out...Dude, I feel your pain.
What Greg has done with this story is a doover thing, and Greg managed to create something that was not a carbon copy of all the other doover stories. Yes there are a few tropes, gotta keep the story moving; although I am getting tired of the Hunt Brothers and the attempt to corner the silver market.
As usual, the characters are so well drawn that it is sometimes easy to forget that this is fiction. OK, not that easy, but still, once past the whole go back in time thing, the story is believable with only a limited amount of suspension of disbelief.
So the hero was in the CIA, and much like Liam Neeson,, he has a unique set of skills, one of which involves getting more than his fair share of pussy. This is a normal review for a G. Younger story: three tens. On the other hand, as of today, 6/25/16, there are only two more installments to go in this, Book 1 of "A Wrinkle in Time" trilogy, which I hope will not turn out to be like a Douglas Adams trilogy and take up five books thereby postponing the date he releases the next installment of "Stupid Boy."
As ever this comes as close to error free as is seen anywhere on SOL.
I understand that this is part 1 of a trilogy, and that only the first few chapters are out as of the time that I post this review. Those few chapters, however, were enough to make me contact the author and actually pay for the remainder of the story. Me, Mr. Frugal himself, who reads SOL so that I don't spend my life's savings on the multitude of books I read, actually ponied up the money and bought the book.
My one complaint, and possibly the reason that the story did not get all 10s? I want the other two books of the trilogy already. I am a voracious reader, and will likely have read at least another 100, if not 200 or more novels, before the remaining 2 books come out. What is out already will leave you wanting more. You have been warned.
