Grant Cogar is an interesting character, and being written in the first-person, Granzow's prose immediately allows us to get inside Cogar's head and see what makes him tick. First Person isn't the easiest way to write a novel, and the character's "voice" can make it or break it very easily. I think with a character like Cogar, having access to his perspective, and all the little tidbits of history and experience he constantly refers to, helps quickly establish the character as a kind of worldly rogue, a guy who knows how to get out of a tough scrape with his fists, feet, or a silvered tongue.
Overall, the story moves quickly and I found myself engaged from the first chapter on through to the end. While I haven't had a chance to read the first book in the series, I didn't feel as though I missed anything - the story is episodic and self-contained enough to make it immediately accessible to a new reader. If you like action-adventure fiction with a dose of real-world politics and an unusual protagonist, this series is definitely for you. Highly recommended.
Armed with only a notepad and his wits, Cogar's quest for objectivity and journalistic truth leads him out of one scrape and into another--his sense of wry, ill-timed humor serving to lighten many of the book's darker moments.
But all is not fun and games, and despite the fast pace of the story, Granzow manages to deliver a remarkably nuanced look at the brewing conflict throughout--deftly illustrating how a people could find themselves turning even to a dangerously theocratic movement in hopes of rescuing their country from the oppression of a dictator.
Highly recommended. Five stars.
So picking this book up I was not sure what I would think of it. I gave it 10 percent of its length to catch me. I suddenly realized I was past 20 percent of the way through the story!
Cigar is a reporter who likes taking risks because it gives his reporting authority and credibility he feels it would lack otherwise. But he isn't prepared for where he finds himself when he travels to Egypt during the revolt against Mubarak.
For the rest, you will just have to read for yourself. Enjoy.
