    Don't read this is if you are a feminist

    This book reads like an action movie, with lots of action, but poor characterization, a nonsensical conceit, and shoddy plotting. The main character, John Lago, is basically a 25-year-old James Bond. What Lago has in common with Bond is having no conscience and basically womanizing all day long. He drinks, he does drugs, he survives impossible situations, invents impossibly convenient gadgets, has daddy issues, and still manages to fool high-status businessmen that he is a harmless fool. John Lago is unlikeable, hypocritical, contradictory and a general scumbag. The conceit of this book is that Lago tells the reader, a new intern at the Human Resources assassin company, his tricks of the trade as he was one of the best assassins. I didn't enjoy the structure because it positioned the reader in an unrelatable role as one of the assassin interns, who are supposed to be heartless, unloved killers with no family or friends. However, what I really disliked about this book was that every woman was treated as just a sexual object for Lago to ogle or manipulate: the best example of this is Alice, his girlfriend who is basically a poorly-conceived sexual fantasy, whom Lago repeatedly drugs, fights, and gropes in order to get what he wants. I could probably forgive this book if its treatment of women were better. As it is, I don't recommend this book.
