Tom Clancy supposedly said "The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense." Or was it Mark Twain?
Brad Meltzer's The Inner Circle made no sense to me. Characters motivations made no sense to me, their actions made no sense to me, their role as antagonist/protagonist made no sense to me.
And the book didn't end. It just stopped. I didn't get the sense that anything had been resolved. I'm not even certain that I really know who was the bad guy and who was the good guy.
I'm sorry my first fiction book of 2016 wasn't a favorite.
