The Front Runner sequels - Pls, help!
« on: February 07, 2009, 04:33:58 am »
Hi everyone!

I have read The Front Runner for the first time last summer, and absolutely loved it. However,  I am indecisive about whether to read the two sequels, Harlan's race and Billy's Boy,  as I have often been let down down by sequels, i.e.  found them not convincing enough.

Without giving away any spoilers if any of you has read them, please, will you tell me what you think?

While on the subject, I bought my copy of TFR in London. Then back in Italy I decided to buy a copy for a friend (who loved it too) and was shocked to find out that over here it was first published as late as 2007!

Thnks, sel

Harlan's race was published in '94, Billy's boy in '97.
The Front Runner in '74. She did wait a long time for a sequel.

I didn't read the sequels, but I think I remember reading that Harlan's Race did not get very good reviews.

You might want to zap over to Amazon and see what other readers say.

Thank you Delalluvia. I have been to Amazon but there isn't much. I still haven't made up my mind ...
