Book Review: The Traveler

This is such an interesting book. Will is a writer for Traverlers Magazine. It has really helped him create this story. He has traveled all over the world for his stories. He is married and his wife also works at the magazine. This part reads pretty straight forward. His wife really has no idea what he is up to. We readers know, and anyone with half a brain can guess. The beginning of the book is just filled with speculation. Just not my cup of tea really. Sure it created interest but it also just annoyed me a little. 

I read this book in two days. It was a page turner. I was quite interested the whole time. I was quite invested in what would happen to our main characters, Will and Chloe. I was rooting for their marriage to work, fixing up their house, and ultimately be happy. 

The plot was intense and pretty crazy. There are all these little side stories, twist, major turns were involved. Some really blindsided me, while others I saw coming a mile away. I feel like a few didn't even work with the story line. 

The only issue is writing with a prose style in present tense. I feel it took away from the story.

Goodreads Description: 

A pulse-racing international thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Expats and The Accident

It’s 3:00am. Do you know where your husband is?

Meet Will Rhodes: travel writer, recently married, barely solvent, his idealism rapidly giving way to disillusionment and the worry that he’s living the wrong life. Then one night, on assignment for the award-winning Travelers magazine in the wine region of Argentina, a beautiful woman makes him an offer he can’t refuse. Soon Will’s bad choices—and dark secrets—take him across Europe, from a chateau in Bordeaux to a midnight raid on a Paris mansion, from a dive bar in Dublin to a mega-yacht in the Mediterranean and an isolated cabin perched on the rugged cliffs of Iceland. As he’s drawn further into a tangled web of international intrigue, it becomes clear that nothing about Will Rhodes was ever ordinary, that the network of deception ensnaring him is part of an immense and deadly conspiracy with terrifying global implications—and that the people closest to him may pose the greatest threat of all.

It’s 3:00am. Your husband has just become a spy.
