Contract: Snatch Review

 

Contract: Snatch has a rather compelling storyline. Sei is an almost retired assassin living in seclusion in Belgium. After a few tragic things took place, she took some time off to really reevaluate her life and her career. An old friend comes to visit her and convinces her to at least consider going back to work. To appease him, she gives it a shot, but the contract she gets offered is quite out of the ordinary and leads Sei on quite the journey.

The characters aren't anything incredibly unique, but the ones that do matter are likable. I do particularly enjoy that the main character is a tough and fully capable woman. The writing is also nothing overly sophisticated, but it is enjoyable. It gives more of a casual reading feel to the book.

It's a rather quick read and the chapters, for the most part, are short. It definitely gives the illusion that you've read a lot more than you have. I feel it's a pro for anyone that doesn't have a lot of time to read. You can knock out a few chapters in 15 minutes or so and not leave off in the middle of something. That is unless you're ending on one of the cliffhanger chapters. You might just have to read through the next couple to see what happens.

Some of the plot was rather predictable, but that's to be expected. The story is full of Murphy’s Law: whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. There are quite a few things that I wish would have been expanded on, and I'm not quite sure why they weren't.

Snatch is the first in this series and I am curious to see the rest of Sei’s journey. Honestly, this novel ended before I would have liked. I have a lot of questions and will likely finish the series to get my answers.

Overall, I did enjoy Contract: Snatch. If you're just looking for a quick and easy read, I would recommend it.
