In Chris Lee's 343, a man named Tony falls in love with a woman who is not of his culture. So what does Tony do to get his love back? The answer to that question is the first part of the book and it makes for a great read.
I love how Lee portrays his characters' struggles throughout the novel. Some of them seem almost desperate, while others like Tony are more rational. It's nice to see him writing something about men with similar backgrounds as him rather than write about women.
Another great thing I found about Chris Lee's 343 is the way he portrays violence. It's shocking and at times quite upsetting. Sometimes it's even too much, but Lee does an excellent job of making sure it's realistic and not gratuitous.
One of my favorite parts of the book was when Tony decides to get rid of his wife and has a “big surprise” planned for her. This is a little bit disturbing to me because Lee portrays that as a positive thing because there was nothing wrong with the woman in question. However, it also happens so quickly, but still leaves me thinking about it.
Overall, the characters of Chris Lee's 343 are intriguing to read about. I even bought the second book after finishing the first.
343 is well-written and fun. With a little more attention to detail and a little more humor mixed in, the novel might have been a little better. However, I do recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys fiction about men and women. I'm not sure whether it's Chris Lee's imagination or talent that makes him popular with readers. Many people praise his writing and others enjoy reading what he writes.
343 does have some good parts, but it does have its bad. A little more attention should have gone into creating a more believable plot line with an actual plot. As it is, Lee's story comes across to me as very well researched and thought out, so it could easily have been a real life situation for real life people.
343 is definitely not a book for everyone. It's a quick read with some good plot points and some very bad ones. It doesn't really leave a lasting impression on you if you're not interested in reading about what happens in the story, but if you are, you will be glad you read it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Chris Lee's writing. This book is not your typical thriller novel. It's more about the relationship between two people than about how the story ends. If you enjoy a good romantic comedy then this is definitely worth reading!
