    1 thought on “The End Game

    1. Because Burn Notice is one of those rare shows that successfully walks the line between thriller and comedy, writing a Burn Notice novel seems like a difficult undertaking. So I give Goldberg credit for doing as well as he did. He's definitely very creative and knows his spycraft. But he's not much of a humorist, and the constant weak attempts to imitate the show's sarcastic tone and comedic irony get old fast, though he does do a great job of mimicking the characters' conversation styles. Goldb [...]

    2. Burn Notice: The End Game is enjoyable entry into the burn notice cannon but it's nothing special. If you liked the TV show or the first book and want more of the same it's worth reading.My main complaint with the first book was that it didn't really feel like it was part of the overall Micheal Weston story. It mentioned the titular burn notice once or twice but didn't show any of the ramifications. End Game has a few moments where Micheal feels burned but they don't quite work. The vague threat [...]

    3. The End Game was not what I would call a great book. It paled in comparison to Todd's first Burn Notice novel, The Fix. In "The End Game" there were some great scenes that had a that "Oh! Just like in a Burn Notice episode!" but overall I felt bogged down in the exposition. Sure, Michael Weston goes into some great DIY spycraft but overall it just fell flat. The ending was the worse IMHO. It just sort of ends. I'm not even quite sure why the badguys do what they did. I felt like a situation was [...]

    4. This was a fair addition to the Burn Notice series, but I'll have to admit I didn't like it as much as Goldberg's first Burn Notice novel, The Fix. For me, it just felt as if there was way too much reliance on the internal narrative. I got to the point, after a while, where if I read the sentence "When you're a spy" one more time, I was going to give up. I'd much rather see the characters actually interacting, and see the plot grow out of their actions, rather than out of all the exposition. But [...]

    5. I have to say that I'm very on the fence about this book. As a stand-alone story, it is well-written (though I do feel that the supporting characters are slightly shallow). As a novel companion to the TV show, however, I don't feel that this did it justice. Though I tried to imagine Michael voicing the text, there were multiple times where the sarcastic humor and the things that make Michael Michael justweren't there. I do commend Goldberg for attempting to capture such a dynamic character in a [...]

    6. The End Game is the second novel about Burn Notice. This case is a bit more complex than those seen on tv and the plot requires you to pay attention. Otherwise, you may miss some clues and the explanations may not make sense or you may not notice how Michel solves the case. This doesn’t mean that the plot is difficult to follow; only that half reading and half watching tv is probably not the best idea.Although there is a bit of information about the characters, it is better to be familiar with [...]

    7. It's hard to know what to say about this book. While Tod Goldberg had the characters down dead and the TV format very well done, that's about all it had going for it. The End Game was nothing more than a TV episode. It was a reasonably well done TV episode, but nothing beyond. I'm sorry, but when I read a book, I want more than just something I can sit down and watch in 42 minutes. I wouldn't read a movie adaptation and expect nothing more than a film script, I want much more than you get on scr [...]

    8. Better than the first book, The Fix, which is good, because I read this one first one a trip across the country with my wife. It wasn't a good book, but there was enough that was done right that I gave the next book (actually #1 in the series) a try. In the end though, there just isn't the right tone and humor from then characters that was in the series. Fiona constantly plays like a caricature of her TV self, which sort of kills a big reason to read and enjoy the books. If you enjoyed the TV sh [...]

    9. Another decent entry in the series. The first book did a good job of establishing that the book characters are nicely in line with the TV characters. This book basically seems to introduce Miami all the yachting and super luxury woven into the story is the stand-in for all of the sunshine and beach transitions that provide the noticeable atmosphere for the TV show. This book also brings in more of the James Bond vibe that comes and goes in the show by having Michael infiltrate a HIGH STAKES GAME [...]

    10. Michael is hired to find a kidnapped wife and daughter of the man who will be piloting the family yacht during a race. If he thought that was easy, however, he discovers he's in way over his head as he starts digging deeper. A great entry that captures the characters and pace of the series. There were a couple leaps that I had to fully think about to get, but that could just be me.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    11. I found todd's set of books to be a great extension to the series on television I already like/enjoy. The internal monologue of the main character is very different, more hard-edged, than you see in the television show.A great addition, if you already enjoy the show.

    12. I liked this one better than the first one- it seemed like Tod Goldberg had a better grasp of the characters, and the story was more interesting than the first.Still, I do like the show better than the novels.

    13. I really like watching burn notice on TV, but reading the books is good too. I liked how in the book it talked about how things blow up. I think the books are different than the TV show but it goes along the same base line which is a good thing.

    14. Pretty good book, bit confusing at places (I could figure it out at the end who was betraying who, but it took awhile). What made me want to read this book, and probably the others, is that there is more of the story than in a 1hr episode on TV.

    15. I love the tv series, and the book reads much like the show. This one wasn't as good as "The Fix", but still an enjoyable read.

    16. I enjoyed this story, was way better then the television show ---- got much more info on being a spy, more jokes was quite entertaining and amusing, GREAT READ!!

    17. This definitely retained the fun sense of humor that the show has. Sometimes I thought it was even funnier.

    18. Fun, quick read! I really like how the author does a really good job with the characters, the books feel like an extension of the show.

    19. Another fun and fast Burn Notice novel. The author does a very good job at capturing all the characters' voices.

    20. Love it, once again Michael Weston saves the good guys. makes me miss the show but at least I've got more to read.

    21. Tod Goldberg nails the voice of Michael Westen, the BURN NOTICE protagonist, perfectly. If you're into the show, you'll want to see how he plays right up against the edges of the canonical storyline.
