Without Remorse, Week 1

Welcome to Week 1 of the Online Book Club discussion of Without Remorse.

The Online Book Club, if you've never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving your comments. Check back each week and see what new topics we're talking about.

Without Remorse is the story of John Kelly, a former Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran who loses his wife in a car crash and is forced to rebuild his life. At the beginning of the book, Kelly appears to find new love, but this relationship introduces him to the seedy world of drugs and ultimately leads him down a path of revenge and retribution. It's a complicated story about a very complicated character. 

If you want to follow along with us but you aren't interested in reading the book, you can always watch the movie version starring Michael B. Jordan. Check out the trailer above for the movie version if you want to get a feel for the series. Feel free to still leave comments on the blog posts, even if you're only watching the movie and not reading the book. 

We'll read the first 12 chapters for next time, so make sure to read those before checking out the next blog post. I look forward to hearing from you in the comments!
