RATING: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Who is Boy Nobody?
The perennial new kid at school:
New town, new name... new mission.
The perfect assassin:
Kill your target and move on.
No fear. No sympathy. No remorse.
But this time is different. The stakes are deadlier. The memories are surfacing. And Boy Nobody is about to find out who he really is.
I decided to read this because it seemed short and fun and not all too complicated, because I did not have time to read something large and complex. Well, this book was somewhere in between. It's short, and the story is not too complicated.
I liked Boy Nobody because it was quite original. I've never read a YA book before written this way. The writing was nice and concise. While reading it, you have a feeling like you're watching a movie, because this story would perfectly be adapted in a movie.
It was hard conecting to the main character, because he tried as much as he could to stay on the low, and he kept adapting new personalities with every next target and he didn't show much emotion.
I felt that the book moved way too fast. I do understand that he had 7 days to complete the mission he was given, but that a short time to fall in love with a girl. And there was an insta connection and almost insta love between the two main characters.
One thing I liked the most about this book is how in every single situation, Boy Nobody proved that he is so intelligent and acted that way. He knew everything that was happening, and always acted accordingly.
I would recommend this book to those who love a good, short mistery, but If you're looking for a romantic and lovey dovey book, this isn't the right choice for you.
