[ [KINDLE] The Forgotten Room ] author Lincoln Child – nikeshoxoutlet.us
I enjoyed The Forgotten Room Jeremy Logan although I had not read any the previous books in the series This works well as a stand aloneThe Forgotten Room had a little of everythingmad scientists unexplained deaths strange oings on and a protagonist who is a sensitive Professor Jeremy Logan the uirky and charismatic enigmalogist who specializes in solving problems of the strange or seemingly supernatural variety An enjoyable and entertaining readlisten I m not sure where to start with this It s hard to believe TFG is written by part of the same team that brings us the ever enjoyable Pendergast adventures This is really an overwritten piece Too much description and exposition in every single scene bleeds any tension from what should be a tense thriller leaving the story feeling like a bad Scooby Doo episode without any of the fun spooks and scares And TFG s protagonist Jeremy Logan is really the anti Pendergast The character is just too one dimensional With no apparent flaws he clumps and plods through the story with his perfect moral center held high Anyway "enough about this Child has done much better work and I d recommend any of his other novels "about this Child has done much better work and I d recommend any of his other novels long as the cardboard creation of Logan is nowhere to be found on the flap The Forgotten Room ives initial vibes that it s heading toward the supernatural perhaps with a hostly presence that s responsible for the The Nine of Us gruesome suicide of a senior researcher at a stuffy think tank on the coastline of Newport Rhode IslandThe main character Jeremy Logan was a prof at the Lux research institute years earlier until a self important professor rallied opposition citing Logan s field of study enigmatology was not up to the institute s scientificacademic standardsWhen one of the profs dies under mysterious and ugly circumstances Logan is called upon to use his investigative abilities and discretion to learn what happenedLogan conducts the usual winding course of interviews that turn up small bits of information and several dead ends In the process he learns the deceased the level headed Dr Willard Strachey had been in charge of a renovation project and after probing discovers a forgotten room that the researcher had obviously discoveredThe room does notive up its secrets because someone else has been in it and taken pertinent materials and documentsFrom here the plot shifts from supernatural forces to those of unknown black hearted humans as the culprits as deaths ensue The plodding pace in the first three uarter of the book shifts into second and then third ear as the pieces come together with a finish that comes close to but is not uite an action thrillerThe end is the best part of the Forgotten Room both in terms of action and Logan s inspired solution to defeat overwhelming forcesI ave The Forgotten Room 3 12 stars because of its overly slow start but the ending and Logan s character are worth a solid four stars 35 With a strong start I thought that this was Hiding in the Bathroom going too in a horrorsupernatu.

Ral direction which I was kind of digging But then it felt like the author reigned it in and changed direction to be a straight up mystery which I was a little disappointed with The main character had some elements of Pendergast and the house was a little Enoch Leng ish so it felt very familiar and comfortable Definitely forT Help But Wish
