That being said, this book is pretty good with what it is, a finished first time novel by a very good author. There are a few errors in the book, and to me it seemed like the main characters romance was a bit pushed, especially the initial setup.
I kept wanting to tell the author that he needed a bit of pacing.

But past that this book was a pretty enthralling read, my attention was snapped into place and kept there till the end, which was where I thought things became pretty predictable.
Not bad though for a first time book.

I found the characters well rounded with a fast paced storyline easily flitting between the USA and china without losing the pace or losing the plot.

Would recommend to any fan of thrillers. I look forward to reading more by Charles O'Donnell Oct 14, Diane added it. I have to agree with some of the others, once I figured out who was who in the 1st half of the book, I read the last half of the book into the wee hours of the am because I could not put it down.
I just had to find out what was going to happen to Matt, Gina and the team.
Very Impressed by the 1st book by this author and am looking forward to more. Nov 04, Lori Tatar rated it really liked it. This is a smart, fast-paced techno-crime thriller that smacks of reality based on today's current events. The protagonist is a brainy, geeky near-recluse who becomes hooked up with a woman who most men would only dream of. In the end, he must rely on his own wits and a couple of friends with whom he can literally entrust his life as he becomes a hunted man.
Explore international politics, corporate boardrooms and high technology in this exciting debut novel. Nov 05, Heather rated it liked it Shelves: I received this book for free from Goodreads First Reads. A good technological thriller. Although I didn't really feel a connection to ALL of the characters in this book, I certainly connected with Matt the main character.
And really, isn't that all that matters? I would love to see more books by this author featuring Matt Bugatti. Well worth a read! Nov 20, Lorna Holland rated it liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this book - it was very well written with an exciting twist at the end. Although I struggled a bit with all the technical computer jargon, this didn't distract me from the overall plot and I now know a lot more about the computer industry than I did before!
Nov 13, Sara rated it really liked it. This book is about a quite interesting high-tech story. I really like the way that different plotlines are connected. When I started to read the first chapter, I could not wait to know about the rest of the whole book.
Reading this book seems like watching an espionage movie in the mind. It's always fun to check out a book from a first time author A great mix of geeky tech story with a mix of espionage and intrigue. Highly recommend and look forward to more stories from Charles "Gus" O'Donnell. I loved The Girlfriend Experience and pretty much read it without stopping in one weekend. It's been a while since I've taken the time to do that.
First of all, the subject matter - industrial espionage, cracking encryption keys, the NSA striving to gather more and more information on all Americans, and China trying to steal any breakthrough ideas - couldn't be more timely. The plot is carefully crafted and all the different lines are brought together beautifully, through the actions of a number I loved The Girlfriend Experience and pretty much read it without stopping in one weekend. The plot is carefully crafted and all the different lines are brought together beautifully, through the actions of a number of different characters who are all very believable.
They way these characters compromise themselves gradually and end up committing more and more problematic acts, because each new one doesn't seem that much worse than the previous one, is simply masterful. Even though these rather ordinary people commit pretty outrageous acts that theoretically every one of us would condemn, you cannot help but develop a certain understanding and even sympathy for them.
I especially thought the descriptions of the Chinese plot lines and characters were very well done.
It's one thing to think of an interesting plot, but it requires a whole lot more skill to actually bring it to life with believable characters where I think some bestsellers like the Da Vinci Code fall flat , which is precisely what this author has pulled off so brilliantly.
I can't wait for more! The Girlfriend Experience is a great read that pulls together multiple plot lines and winds them up into a fast moving, exciting conclusion.
In much the same vain as David Baldacci, W. Griffin or Nelson DeMille, the author takes us through multiple twists and turns as the hero establishes himself as a likable "every man" who can handle himself in a tricky spot.
The story is quick, entertaining and the characters likable in their own, ordinary ways. I really enjoyed the fact that the charact The Girlfriend Experience is a great read that pulls together multiple plot lines and winds them up into a fast moving, exciting conclusion.
I really enjoyed the fact that the characters were identifiable and not living some glamorous jet-setting lifestyle which is completely out of touch with reality. Although some portions of the book involving technical subjects could quickly exceed some peoples ability, it was tempered with a quick, mid-western dialog that brought the story back down to earth. As someone who is currently living overseas in China, I also found the sections of the story about China both interesting and realistic.
This is a great first effort by a new author. I look forward to the next installment of Matt Bugatti's story! Jan 10, Ann Andrews rated it really liked it. I can't say that some parts of this book weren't over my head, but that aspect added to the plot for me on so many levels! Matt's story is complex, and not entirely his story alone.
With each layer that O'Donnell added, I felt slightly more bewildered and slightly more compassionate towards Matt and the huge mess he found himself in. I particularly enjoyed that this wasn't a straight up thriller.

While it was incredibly thrilling, Matt's own personal growth took on a plot of its own throughout the work and gave me a few breaks from the technical computer talk. I loved each character, even the "bad guys. Feb 10, Gregory Wilson rated it did not like it. Sorry, do not understand the hype posted about this book - this is a strange book. I could only make it past the first few chapters, because of stereotype characters, you know he has a scene where they are all drinking beer and grappa then after four hours we have a drunk driver, as well as a very strange project manager that relates to a critical line, on a project that cannot possibly be projected, it is just crazy.
