Also really appreciated how much more it spoke of God and how God was Charlies strength. View 1 comment. May 10, Calvin Edwards rated it it was ok. I did not like this book very well. But near the end was good, so I rated it two and a half stars.
Jan 24, Courtney Vail rated it really liked it Shelves: christian. Charlie West is a feisty protagonist, who's missing a year of his life and running from mystery killers--a group of terrorists he just escaped from. He can't recall what's happened in the last year, so he's on a hunt to fill in the memory gap. When he tracks down the only clue he can remember, a guy named Waterman, he begins to get some answers, but the closer he gets to uncovering the truth, the more danger he finds himself in.
And when Waterman dies with questions still unanswered, he's left Charlie West is a feisty protagonist, who's missing a year of his life and running from mystery killers--a group of terrorists he just escaped from.
And when Waterman dies with questions still unanswered, he's left in a sea of black all alone, trying his best to get out alive. This novel really only refers to his belief in God but doesn't preach at readers or speak any Christianese at all. It is clean, but not to the point of being annoying, as the grit and danger keep it exciting. And even though this is YA as well, any reader who loves suspense would enjoy this.
It's a good example of a cross-over type. I got this book from Booksneeze, unaware that it was a third installment in a series, but that didn't bother me in the least. The storyline was very easy to follow for a new reader, gripping, suspenseful and action-packed. There is a strong possibility this novel could be boring for those who've read the previous, since I as a new reader was riveted to discover the chunks of his missing past, whereas those familiar would already know them, making the reveals less impacting.
The only thing I didn't like was the narrative and dialogue were very simplistic, and I don't think you should ever dumb things down for teens. I think if the author hadn't skimped in this area, his novel would have had even more cross-over appeal.
Other than that, it was most enjoyable. So, if you're looking for a good YA suspense novel, Christian or not, check this one out. Sep 25, Emma Ksiazak rated it really liked it. The Truth of the Matter is about a young man, Charlie West trying to stop the mysterious terrorist group called the Homelanders, and find out what happened to his memories. Desperate for answers, he finds a man who he has heard could help him, and he goes by the name of Waterman. Waterman begins to help Charlie get his memories back, but before he can help him anymore, he is killed and Charlie once again is left to fend for himself.
Charlie eventually finds himself running for his life again, The Truth of the Matter is about a young man, Charlie West trying to stop the mysterious terrorist group called the Homelanders, and find out what happened to his memories. Charlie eventually finds himself running for his life again, and while on the run he makes a revelation which could change his life forever. After reading this book, I noticed one of the main themes of the book is how Charlie is regarded Truth Of The Matter - Longusto - Back In The Bad Books a national enemy, but his friends and girlfriend know the truth that he is Dont Cry For Us (Album Version) - Various - Promo Only Mainstream Radio: August 2002 a terrorist, but The Future (Armandos Original Mix) - Various - European Clubshoes - Pair Two framed by someone.
This reminds me of the I am Number Four series, written by Pittacus Lore, where the protagonist John Smith is regarded as a national enemy, but in reality he is not only trying to save Earth but his planet he comes from, Lorien.
Most of the world hates him, except for his friends and girlfriend, just like I am Number Four. I think one of the main themes in both of these texts would be to be honest, and that the ones that you love will know you are innocent, and that even if the world hates you there are at least some people who cares for you. This is a strong message and I feel like we should try to influence this message, that there will always be somebody out there for you, no matter what.

More like 3. This was my least favorite of the series so far. Not because it wasn't a quick and interesting read, but I just found it kind of frustrating. Plus, this was the first time I really felt the "young adult" aspect, which I never really dwelled upon before. All of the missing time is explained, but at least for me, there weren't really many surprises there. I would have rather gotten all that out at once at the start of the book and then moved on with the story, but instead the More like 3.
I would have rather gotten all that out at once at the start of the book and then moved on with the story, but instead the flashbacks were interspersed all throughout the story, which I found really broke the overall flow.
Again, probably just a young adult thing - not wanting an 18 year old to kill someone that way but it's not like there isn't plenty of other killing going on. It just felt a bit artificial to extend out the chase longer.
However, even with all of that, I can't wait to Dont Knock On My Door - Colin (41) - Halloween 17 (File, Album) the last one of the series. Jan 14, Melanie rated it it was amazing Shelves: borrowed.
The Truth of the Matter was a thrilling ride! I loved it! It was very interesting to learn more about what was really going on in Charlie's life and, I have to say, I was surprised by some of the things revealed! There was so much action in The Truth of the Matter that it held my attention throughout! I don't think there was anything I didn't like about this book The ending left me itching to pick up The Final Hour book four as soon as possible!
I think you should probably read books one and two first, though, so things will make sense. I was not required to write a review, but chose to.
All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. Mar 27, Jack S rated it did not like it. Honestly, This installment in the Homelanders series was quite bad. It always seemed to go slow, too many boring past times and not enough action like the books before hand basically promised. Just all I have to say is that I didn't enjoy the book, and will put down the books ahead of me.
Feb 19, Bernie Gale rated it it was ok. A struggle to get to book 3 but one has to get the answers Yes its a good romp typical of a tv drama series and readable. Dec 19, Kevin rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery-thrillersibook. Fun book but the story has a whale of a cliffhanger. I cannot wait until August when the final book in this series is released! Dec 19, Aubrey Benisch rated it really Truth Of The Matter - Longusto - Back In The Bad Books it.
Charlie West begins to follow the person he has just learned is Waterman. He followed Waterman into an alley and confronted him and found out that Waterman can give him all the answers he wants. He can hear Waterman and the other man talking in the front seat. They opened the trunk and he stepped out. They take him to a bunker in the middle of a forest.
This was one of the only connections I could make because this series is very different than the other books I usually like to read. I think that the author did an amazing job with this book and he gave great details so that I could picture what was happening in my head.
It definitely kept me wondering what was going to happen next and you will never want to put this book down. I think the author did a good job of explaining things and was very clear about what was happening. I was never confused about what was happening. This book definitely had a lot of action that happened and there was also a lot of mystery. I would definitely recommend this to a friend who loves mystery books.
Feb 28, Ryan Triplett-Watson rated it really liked it. As I've said before if you haven't read this series, you should! In the third book of the series Charlie continues his journey. Klavan really knows how to create a character and build a relationship with the reader and main character. Charlie has been on his journey for a while now. I enjoy reading this series, because the author can throw in so many different things, that it makes As I've said before if you haven't read this series, you should!
I enjoy reading this series, because the author can throw in so many different things, that it makes you want to keep reading it. Throughout the third book I felt like it was starting to get repetitive. It's always something like Charlie gets into trouble or a situation and finds a way out.
Klavan still manages to draw you into the book even when it feels repetitive. That's one of the reasons I find this series so good, because even though you feel like you're reading the same thing, Klavan uses different situations to make you feel on the edge of your seat.
Sometimes I like to think about myself being in his situations and what I would do. After I think about what I would do I continue reading to see if it was something close to what I would do.
All in all it is a really good series and I think I will continue reading it until I get to the very end. If you love action and adventure and love a book with a lot of twists this is great for you!
Oct 10, Destini Venghaus rated it it was amazing. Now he's on the run from the police, who thinks he killed his friend, and the terrorist group. He seeks a mysterious agent named Waterman to uncover the secrets of his past, but finding him may lead him to greater danger than he thinks. Will he uncover the secrets of his past, or will he die trying? While Andrew Klavan keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the book, he fails to add the rising and falling action.
Throughout the whole book it seems as if the whole book is the climax and the events leading up to the main climax are a blur. I especially enjoyed how the author described each and every character throughout the book. Andrew Klavan finds a way to add romance into a very action packed and suspenseful book. For example even though Charlie West is convicted of murder and sent to prison, he and his girlfriend still stay in touch and after he escaped prison his girlfriend helps him along the way while Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis* - Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite not giving up hope on him that he's still innocent.
I highly enjoyed this book and would give it a rating of 6 out of 5 stars. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves action or suspense.
This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I was up all night reading it. Apr 24, Steven Doctor rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Charlie, the main character, is somewhat up to speed with everything that he had missed in his time of forgetfulness.
His primary objective is to get his life back together and prove his innocence correct by exposing the truth about the fascist terrorists "It is no use to focus on changing the past; it is Lionel Richie - All Night Long (All Night) set in concrete.

Hajsi, Vy Siví Volci • Heia, Ihr Grauen Ochsen (Tenor) - Leoš Janáček – Philip Langridge, Brigit and issues that are put in his way. Charlie always seems to overcome anything with his positive attitude and passive perseverance.
Andrew Klavan's third book in the Homelander series, The Truth of Jupiter Attack - Hans Landa - Static Vision Matter, caused me to never put the book down and made my imagination grow due to it's amazing sense of suspense, detailed setting description and completely unique style of writing.
One of the most important portions of the big idea in this part of the Homelander series is the theme. Assuming that the general audience that views Klavan's mystery novels are between the youth of teenage and young adults, the theme in each book can be easily applied to the lives, and related to by the viewers. Specifically in this book, the theme that is stressed is to never give up even when things may seem as worse as they could be.
Charlie demonstrates extreme perseverance and a constant determination to prove his innocence, and this demonstration really helped me view some situations in my life where I had also been completely committed to achieving a certain goal. Additionally, another theme is presented within the contents of this book.
Find a mentor to whom you can discover Truth Of The Matter - Longusto - Back In The Bad Books full potential. Charlie's mentor, in this case, is his karate teacher, Sensei Mike. It is important to have a mentor who brings out the best in you, so that you can keep discovering more and more about yourself.
Sensai Mike and Charlie have an outstanding relationship, and it is definitely relatable for those who are viewing this book to think of an important mentor figure in their life as well. A recurring pattern that is noticed in Andrew Klavan's books is the plot consistency. He seems to always use quite a deal of foreshadowing, essentially incorporated within symbolism. You can usually find this use of symbolism in the chapter names, but they will never give the contents of the chapter away.
Klavan keeps the plot ongoing throughout the first word of the novel, and ending with the last. He also complicates everything in a way that once you finish a chapter, everything makes perfect sense afterwards.
For example, a long segment of this book is about Charlie making a run from those who are trying to inflict harm on him. The chapter names are organized in a way so that once you finish the chapter, the general idea of it is pretty much the chapter name. Probably one of my favorite things about Andrew Klavan's writing in this book is it's setting.
Klavan directly puts so much visible effort into his use of descriptive words and strong sense of imagery. Every action scene that is depicted is well thought out, and put together in a way that describes every movement with such strong choice of vocabulary that just paints a picture in your head for you. When Charlie is on the run from those who are trying to inflict harm on him, you can only go so far with describing the same surroundings of him, which in this case is essentially just a desert with few features.
What is probably my most favorite trend that Andrew Klavan expresses in his books is his unique style of writing. In every single addition of the Homelander collection, the mixture of foreshadowing, flashback and symbolism that Klavan is known for makes every sentence a work of art. If he were to write a short piece of literature, it could be told that he had written it if his name was not on it. This addition to the Homelander collection is especially significant because of Trois Pièces Faciles À Quatre Mains - Various - Festival Dada Paris: Soirée Du Coeur À Barbe it really makes the connection of any misunderstood principles.
Regardless if the reader had some prior trouble in understanding what was going on with Charlie and maybe even just the little things that were giving some issues to the readers understanding, this book really solidifies and clarifies those misunderstandings.
Andrew Klavan is an amazing writer, and any of his other works exemplify his unique writing style, so I also recommend those as well. To anybody whom I recommend this book to, I can fully assure that you will enjoy it as well as the other books as well.
It is utterly amazing. Jun 26, McKenzie Dean rated it really liked it. The Truth of the Matter is by far my favorite of the four books in the Homelanders series. We finally understand the mess that Charlie West is in and why he can't remember the last year of his life. It had none of the slow scenes that the previous two books sometimes had a problem with and it Bist Du Bei Mir BWV 508 - Erika Köth • J.S.
Bach*, Franz Schubert, Max Reger - Erika Köth Singt far more character growth, which I enjoyed. Andrew Klavan really stepped up his game with this one, though I still think it would have saved everyone a lot of time by combining the first two or even The Truth of the Matter is by far my favorite of the four books in the Homelanders series.
Andrew Klavan really stepped Rocket Man (I Think Its Going To Be A Long, Long Time) - Elton John - The Very Best Of Elton John his game with this one, though I still think it would have saved everyone a lot of time by combining the first two or even three books into one novel, as most of what occurs can be heavily edited and still read the same and have the same tone.
The plot does move a little slowly at times, but that is more than made up for in the action sequences. The only other thing that can get annoying at times is Charlie's inner dialogue and thought process. Sometimes I feel like the author just copied and pasted the same lines in different chapters throughout the book. It still gets a solid 4 stars from me, though! Oct 15, Preston rated it it was amazing. Charlie West goes to bed one night a normal high school kid and wakes up a year later, not remembering any of that year, in the hands of a terrorist organization called the Homelanders.
He then goes on a suspenseful journey running from not only the terrorists, but also the police. He searches for a man by the name of Waterman to help him to hopefully remember the past year of his life.
This book is basically Charlie remembering the past year of his life and connecting all of the pieces that Charlie West goes to bed one night a normal high school kid and wakes up a year later, not remembering any of that year, in the hands of a terrorist organization called the Homelanders. This book is basically Charlie remembering Твой Папа - Фашист - Телевизор - ХХV лет в одной лодке (DVD) past year of his life and connecting all of the pieces that were left open in the previous books.
It is full of action and adventure. Charlie cannot sit still, because it would put him in greater danger. It leaves a great cliffhanger on the end of the book to make you look forward to the next and last book of the series. I cannot wait to read it. If it was anything like this book, then it is going to be good. I definitely recommend this series. Feb 22, Jwhitley18 rated it it was amazing. Jan 10, Jack Palen rated it really liked it.
I thought this 3rd book of the Homelanders series was very good and cleared up a lot of grey area information.
It did not suffer from middle book syndrome as there was a lot of action and adventure with Charlie. Klavan continues to impress me with his suspenseful endings as I find myself breezing through the last 3 chapters of each book much quicker as I am eager to see what happens.
I will definitely be reading the 4th and final book of the Homelanders series. Would highly recommend to readers I thought this 3rd book of the Homelanders series was very good and cleared up a lot of grey area information. Would highly recommend to readers of all ages.
