Nothing Lasts Forever
2011, Amazon Kindle ebook
The novel the movie Die Hard is based on. A group of terrorists take over a building on Christmas ... you know what, you've seen Die Hard, and if you haven't, get off my blog and go see Die Hard.
That said, it does vary a little from the movie in that the main character is the father not the husband, and the terrorists' motivations are different. Also, different people die, but I won't give it away. Needless to say, being a huge huge fan of the movie I was shocked when it happened!
This is a very 'boy's own' book. Lots of action scenes and macho emotional stuff. Yes, macho emotional is a thing. I just made it a thing. The characters are well rounded; because the main character in the book is not the main character from the movie, I thought I may have trouble accepting him, but he is written really well.
Overall, I found this novel to be a little underwhelming - it's ok, but lacks the humour of the movie. I guess it's just a different style.
