I thought this spy novel by Daniel Silva was good. The narrator was right on and there was good character development and historical action. Enjoyed.
This was my first Daniel Silva book. I downloaded it based upon the other reviews, and I'm so glad I did! The story was riveting, the characters were well drawn, the narrator was "spot on," and I didn't want the story to end. I'm definitely going to download more Daniel Silva books.
I tired of waiting for the next Allon installment, so decided to go with this, Silva's first. I was extremely pleased. I don't know if he's done anything this good since. Oh, yes I do; he has, again and again!
If you like WWII spy stories then look no further. The good and bad guys are both interesting.
I've read a lot of Daniel Silva and this book is by far his best. Riveting to the end, the WW2 plot is a nice change-up from Alon.
I love Daniel Silva, but I really didn't enjoy this. I just couldn't get into it and had a hard time keeping all the characters straight. Maybe it was where my head was while I was listening, but I was glad when the book was over. I'll give it another try at a later date and maybe change my mind but for now, I don't put it in the same class as Silva's other books.
This is my second Daniel Silva novel and it's good to read a spy novel written in an adult style by someone who clearly could make a mark as a "serious" novelist should he ever wish to tackle different themes. Clearly, I loved the book but I must call attention to the extraordinary narration by Michael Page whose voice changes for each and every character.
Character development was fantastic. The storyline was realistic and had various levels of depth adding a richness to the book. I'm not usually into wartime books but this was great.
Slow to start and very dull. Gets better in the later part of the book. At times it is very hard to understand the involvement of each person and to keep them seperated.. Good information on WWII and alll that went into the invasion..
