I Am Pilgrim | Thursday Reads

“I Am Pilgrim” by Terry Hayes


I believe that I have mentioned this book in my blog in the past, but since I recently started Thursday Reads, I knew I had to share this one. This book came out back on May 27, 2014. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this and got the chance to read it earlier than that. And it blew me away. This one is on my To Be Re-Read pile.

Despite it being 700 pages, it is a quick read. I had troubles putting it down. And when I wasn’t reading, I was constantly thinking about it. And there were many times were I found myself rooting for the bad guy (seriously!).

The blurb:

A breakneck race against time…and an implacable enemy.

An anonymous young woman murdered in a run-down hotel, all identifying characteristics dissolved by acid. 

A father publicly beheaded in the blistering heat of a Saudi Arabian public square. 

A notorious Syrian biotech expert found eyeless in a Damascus junkyard. 

Smoldering human remains on a remote mountainside in Afghanistan. 

A flawless plot to commit an appalling crime against humanity. 

One path links them all, and only one man can make the journey.


Many events interweave in this ultimate game of cat and mouse, in which one man, Pilgrim, needs to solve in order to save the United States.

This is THE book!

I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes

Today, I want to discuss a book that I’m very excited about its release in May. I’m not really going to do a “book review” because I feel I have very poor reviewing skills. I cannot translate what I feel. The words do not come to me. But I want, I need, to share my excitement over this book.

In fact, I haven’t been this excited for a book to be released sine The Last Man by Vince Flynn. And I honestly thought I never would since Flynn’s passing.

Last summer, I had the pleasure of reading I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes. Terry Hayes is new to the book world, but isn’t new to writing. You can find more about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_HayesPilgrim was previously released overseas, but is making is US debut May 27th.

This book is epic. I say it is epic because it is 700 pages. Now, I know you may be thinking, SEVEN HUNDRED pages, but let me tell you, do not let the size of this book scare you. It’s a fast and wild ride. An amazing game of cat and mouse. The security and safety of the United States of America rests on one man, Pilgrim, to track down one man. This book is filled with twists and turns and interweaving mysteries and murders. Even after 700 pages, it leaves you wanting more.

I will admit, at first I was intimidated at the size, but I was captivated from the very beginning. As it took me a couple weeks to read, I found it hard to put down (but at 2 am, I needed to get some sleep). When I wasn’t reading I Am Pilgrim, I was constantly thinking about it. Heck, I was even dreaming about it.

Do yourself a favor, preorder I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes. I have. You can find it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/I-Am-Pilgrim-A-Thriller/dp/1439177724/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393454674&sr=8-1&keywords=i+am+pilgrim

This is the ultimate thriller.
