34. The Lioness by Chris Bohjalian
I usually like books by Chris Bohjalian, but this book did absolutely nothing for me. It takes place in 1964 when a movie star and her new husband treat a group of friends to an African safari, but instead of the luxurious adventure they were planning on they wind up being part of kidnapping by Russians that goes wrong. I did not care what happened to any of the characters and thus the suspense about what was going to happen to them that was propelling the story forward did not keep me engaged. I give it a 4 out of 10.
