Boy Nobody

I like flawed heroes more than I do any other kind of hero. We’re not meant to love himBen is a highly trained killer. A fast-paced thriller following the adventures of a brainwashed teen assassin. Benjamin is pretty much a robot.

Using this website means you are okay with this but you can find out a,len and learn how to manage your cookie choices here. In a nutshell, it’s a story of Benjamin or “Ben”, for shortwho is a well-trained, competent, and meticulous assassin.

Written to appeal to early teens on up, there is nothing not to like, accept maybe that this young man was ever put in the position he finds himself. Jason Bourne meets James Bond for teen readers. I hope there will be a sequel, because I am highly interested in finding out more about what happened in “Ben’s” past.


From the Place in the Valley Deep in the Forest. It was her scintillating review that got me to buy this book straight away and I dove in to it with very high expectations.

Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff – review

When he was twelve years old, his parents were killed by the Program, and he became initiated into it. The romance worked in synergy with the plot rather against it, unlike in countless YA.

Despite his flaws, it stays a pretty good first book in my opinion and the ending gave me hope for an exciting sequel. It was too in-your-face obvious how she fits in the story and their chemistry together just felt flat, their dialogue cloyingly cheesy. There are too many things like this lately.

If an autopsy is done, it will show nothing at all. The story starts off right in the middle of a mission and we get to see what “Ben” is capable of straight away.

Yet, as they fight, the sparks fly, and they are drawn to each other on a deeper level than that of initial attraction. He gets the shit done, and that’s that. Probably five if I estimate on the side of indulgence and include high fantasy assassin stories. He carries out his mission and gets his next assignment: I received this from Netgalley for my honest review. But other than that, it was absolutely fantastic. Right now, there are at least 2 or 3 books in my TBR shelf roughly with the same premise as this one.


The writing itself is effective. Ben and Sam clash, yet they see in each other a spark, something that draws them to each other. He shows up in a new high school, in a new town, under a new name, makes few friends and doesn’t stay long.

If you do it right, you can charm her, or at least pique her interest. Why is it so difficult to complete this mission?

In most schools teachers are tired, but not here.

So this is what I told her: But I did absolutely adore the writing style. So I actually liked the ending, it kept me wanting to read what happens next. The book had other twists nibody I was still surprised by the end. Because they’re troublesome and so emotional and so difficult to please yada yada yada.

Please read enclosed file on Project I am a weapon thoroughly. Go in, approach the target, do the hit, get out, next mission
