    Although it's not the worst book I've read, the book was not that great either. It was just something I would never read again. The characters were alright, aside from the female terrorist from Germany. I feel like she was just there to add some sexuality to the book. But it came off as very crass,empty, and devoid of any meaning. If someone were to just call her a "terrorist whore", that would actually sum her up perfectly. The most interesting character who I felt just a bit a sympathy for was Liam. He was ok, even though he was still unlikable. He struggled for character development and had dreams of a better life where he wouldn't have to live life like a criminal. Another really off putting part about the book was the fact that everyone is an extreme alcoholic. I mean seriously, they drink booze all the time, even in the morning when they wake up! I think there was only 1 or 2 instances where they drank something aside from booze. But all at the same time, the characters when they weren't drinking, would be craving a drink just to calm their nerves! It was almost as if they were all superheroes who have the ability to function around explosives and guns and infighting on high volumes of alcohol. I have a belief that people who need to drink all the time are boring people. And the book did a wonderful job of explaining that. Without their misguided idea of correcting the corrupt world with their corrupt actions, they would just be sitting at home being drunk, sleeping around, and working a job that involved boats or something. The beginning made me think that Prenderghast would be an interesting character who had lots of potential to avenge his family. But it turned out he was just a depressed drunk who stumbled onto a convenient job that got him involved with the plot. I'm only thankful I got to learn more about nautical terms like port,starboard,stern,ect. It was an educational step for me to take and to never look back at.
