I read several reviews about the political nature of the book and the criticism of the author bashing America. I personally believe that these reviewers are jumping on the fact that the author is not American. I read the book and I did not read anything that was different than other views for American government and the views by some that in a post-911 world we are moving closer to a society that includes Big Brother without our knowledge. I wonder if these reviews would ring the same if the author was American. In short, do not make a decision to read this book based on a review of political motives of the author.
The reason that I scored this book low was character development. I never really felt that I got to know the main characters in the book. There were attempts at learning about their past, but I never really connected with anyone in the book, and I was left looking for more from almost every character in the book, especially from the Welsh friend. I kept expecting to see a twist from this character that simply never came.
The biggest disappointment was the progress of the story in some places.Read more ›
The beginning was a little contrived and the prose overall was a little choppy and declarative. I was thinking about giving up, but I stuck it out. Things really picked up after the halfway point when the tension mounted and we really got in to the techie stuff. I did find it believable and worth killing for.
This may be nitpicky, but my main complaint was that the author didn't seem to have a lot of experience with American universities, DC, etc, yet this was where the novel was set. I was confused by the relationship among the characters at the university. (At one point, he referred to the main character's boss as the "principal?") A quick edit could have cleaned a lot of that up.
He also was overly descriptive with unimportatnt details. I think he detailed what they ate at every meal, and what roads they were driving on and the make and model of every car.. While this could make for a fuller, richer narative, I felt it was just distracting and drisrupted the flow.
All in all, worth a read if you're into the genre, but just average.
On the whole this is a pretty good tale, and there are some twists and turns to keep you guessing how it will all end. Conspiracy theorists will have some things to chew on, as well. But it seems to me that the detective assigned to the case rushes to judgement that Chris is guilty. When the evidence suggesting a romntic link comes to light, he arrests Chris in a fit of pique just hours aftrer having let him go. He doesn't really begin to build a solid case until after the arrest is made, and that feels backwards to me. This book will be enjoyed more if you give your logical brain the time off, and just go with the flow.
