Plot's a good solid 3. But the writing? Look, Nick. You have a foreword about how this book is your baby. How in hell do you think a baby should be treated? Would you feed it, give it clothing?
Unforeseen (Thomas Prescott #1) by Nick Pirog
Two suggestions: 1. I have never seen so much unintentionally misused vocabulary in one volume. The one that really stuck with me was " Shell out a few hundred bucks, or even a coupla grand, for a goddam proofreader. The vocabulary errors really pissed me off, but the lack of understanding of basic principles of comma usage didn't help.

May 14, Deb Mj rated it liked it. I'm pretty conflicted about this. It's not a bad story, and the writing is more than adequate. I'm a huge fan of sarcasm and dry wit, and Pirog is good at it, but there's way too much of it here.
Almost every page has a "witty" or sarcastic comment, and it stops being amusing and begins to feel snarky and forced. View all 8 comments. Nov 13, Bandit rated it it was ok. The edition I read is the tenth anniversary one not really dated except for celebrity references, so this book is one of those early embarrassment works. I mean the author seems to be proud of it and apparently wrote more of them. Pirog's writing has certainly improved. His Henry Bins 3 am book which is how I found out about the author was quite good. Unforesee The edition I read is the tenth anniversary one not really dated except for celebrity references, so this book is one of those early embarrassment works.
Unforeseen, however, is something of a crapfest. Then again when did statistics stand a chance against fiction. Thomas Prescott, the main protagonist in actuality tragically obnoxious, annoying, vain egotist is handsome and funny. He tells you so himself. It makes his irresistible to cartoonishly attractive females, enough to keep him in a love triangle worthy of a chickflick. He's funny because he can't stop making jokes, at all. He can't help it, he was written that way and Pirog's back in the day apparently wasn't able to stop humoring up the book.
Sometimes genuinely funny, but for the most part just juvenile. It's all over the place too, there is so much levity on so many varied and occasionally inappropriate times example to follow that were these jokes balloons, the story would just float away on them. As it does, really. It's pretty much impossible to take seriously and it crosses into insipid territory too often for enjoyment as a comedy.
I'm not a prude and I appreciate an author with a good sense of humor someone like Jeff Strand , but when someone refers to 7 year old girl's missing eyeballs as chocolate fudge brownies that's just It was amateur, preposterous and silly and Coben, aware of the fact, wrote his foreword accordingly, urging the readers to not have the book serve as an introduction to his work.
Pirog should have probably use similar technique, instead of proclaiming his love for the shiny turd that Unforeseen is. SO I'll say what Pirog won't There was a blind person doing a composite sketch of a killer. That's just so Anyway, that's the book. If you like your thrillers really light on plot and coherence and your humor really overdone, you might enjoy this. Otherwise not so much. Sep 28, Greg Tymn rated it really liked it. Reading Nick's bio helped me put this book in better perspective. He wrote this book while in his early 20's, which explains some of the adjectives and adverbs sometimes archaic, sometimes wrong , a lot of the high-school level humor although I laughed out loud very late at night over 2 of the witty observations , much of the hormonally-infused introspective dialogue and the cheap shots at the FBI.
The plot was put together pretty well, with some weak spots toward the end of the novel. The desc Reading Nick's bio helped me put this book in better perspective. The descriptions of Maine were well-done, with easy visualization of the characters, action and scenery The book had problems, but I couldn't put it down. I read it in an evening and enjoyed it. And it was free on Kindle. I went on to purchase Gray Matter this morning. Aug 16, Desiree rated it really liked it Shelves: thrillers.

I made a vow to never not finish a book after starting one. If the author took the time to write it, then I would take the time to read it. I so wanted to break the rule with this book. The book dragged for me. The plot and story line are exciting and don't clash. One of the things that turned me off immediately is all the little sarcastic jabs the main character has to say in every scene.
It was so immature. I just wanted to slap him and yell. As a pe I really had a hard time reading this book.
As a person, I would have walked away and had absolutely nothing to do with him again. As a reader, I struggled through. I never had a problem with the plot or story line. It was exciting. The monolog from the main character is immature: especially,for a college professor, you would expect more professionalism. No cliffhangers which is great. A full novel, not these little under page teasers The ending is great and so unexpected. May 22, Angus Mcfarlane rated it it was ok Shelves: reviewed , thriller.

Most of these are work-related, but there is some fun stuff too. Eddie and Sue Arthur. Mission Bible Languages. This post is more than a year old. I read a lot of mystery thrillers and Pirog's unique style was refreshing. I found it to be funny, quirky, bawdy and yet he still pulled off the theme park thrill ride feeling of a great thriller and a well laid out mystery that left me guessing right up until the end.
I look forward to reading more of his work and recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading something out of the usual cookie cutter type style that so many authors seem to have fallen into. Pirog captured my attention from the first page and never lost it. An unusual and perfect mixture of witty humor to balance a murder mystery. I found myself laughing out loud many times throughout the book. I love this writer's style. I'm now reading the second Thomas Prescott novel!
LOVE this book!
