The Last Thing I Remember & The Long Way Home

The Last Thing I Remember – Andrew Klavan
Pages:  352
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson, 2009

This action packed book is one I believe my students will love. Charlie West wakes up to find himself strapped to a chair. He’s been beaten, tortured and hi has just heard the orders given to kill him. What he doesn’t know is how he got there, who the people are, what they want and most importantly why they want him dead. This story is told through flashbacks and reflects a lot on his karate training. Although he escapes from his captors he must find the answers to all of his questions. I actually received the second book in the series to review and realized I wanted to read the first one before reading the second book. What follows is my review of the second book.

The Long Way Home

Charlie West is being chased by the police, terrorists and he has no idea why. He is trying to clear his name and so he doesn’t know who to trust. Charlie has been accused of killing his best friend. He wants to make sense of his life. I immediately thought about how this book reads like one of the Alex Rider books. From the minutes I started this book and I couldn’t bear to stop. I sat on the edge of my seat as each event unfolded. This was absolutely awesome. I look forward to reading the third book when it comes out. I believe that my students will like the books by this author as much as I do.
