Gideon...God's loving soldier or a mediocre novel?

First of all- There is not any relationship (or at least from what I saw) between the biblical story and this novel. No fires consuming food or 300 soldiers destroying large armies. What you do have is half of a good novel.... yes half. The first 250 pages are very compelling and shows the makes of a great read. The pages turn with great ease at first, but then it happens. You realize that things just don't seem to add up... Maybe it was just me but at the end of the novel of was left scratching my head wondering what-in-the-world just happened. Things just didn't make sense. I know thrillers usually have unexpected endings, but they usually have logic behind the plot twists. In Gideon- the plot twists just come out of no where and ... well...they left you wondering. However, I'll give it three stars on the strength at which the book starts.My suggestion? Read the first 250 pages and write your own ending.
