Unrealistic and annoying

Zack's Choice
by Harry E. Gilleland Jr.

The blurb:

"Zack's Choice is a crime/heist/mystery novel. Zackery Gresham has his life all planned. His mother is a lawyer; his father is a federal judge; and he is Pre-Law at Yale, with Harvard Law School to follow before he joins his mother’s prestigious law firm. He plans to marry his high school and Yale girlfriend once he graduates from Law School. During a school break Zack takes a once-in-a-lifetime motorcycle trip through the southern states. In New Mexico he has a chance encounter with a strange hitchhiker. The resulting chaos will bring Zack face-to-face with a choice that could alter his life forever."


I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review ... however, he probably wishes he hadn't sent it to me!

The first few chapters really annoyed me as they were so totally unbelievable that I nearly gave up but I persevered.

It did get slightly better as the story moved on but remained unbelievable and, at times, laughable by it being so unrealistic but I did like the style and pace of writing and although it took me a while to get to like Zack, I did eventually although his naivety astounded me.

I do feel that this book is aimed at a teenager or young adult but, sadly, it just wasn't for me and I'm not sure I would read anything else by this author.
