That the author read herself - gives a better feeling hearing her own words as intended when writing the book.
A bit flimpsy and fragemented story.
The outbursts is sometimes timed well and quite funny. The down side of it is that you can almost imagen her saying the the exact same words on stage - the book is like a transcript of her show.
Not so many juicy new details.
One of the best books last 7-8 years. Much better than the recent two I would say.
It has some of the classic suspense - multiple paralell events that in the end are woven together to form the peak of the story.
I am getting a bit tired of the repeated mantra of "not enough money is spent on the CIA"... I get it.
This second book is building on the first book [geim] with HP and Rebecca and The Geim. In summary, this book is much better than the first book, I think. It is more beliveable. Actually many of the things described around "The Buzz" and the way it works, you can see in plain view on the internet. This was quite new to me that is is that obivous. I think of it almost every day - some of it I saw on a documentary on The Discovery Channel the other day!
Clever intrigue, somewhat predictable, but not to a boring and disapointing degree. The languange has improved significantly from the first book.
The narrator is fantastic - he sings and gives the characters a good personal tone of voice.
Overall a very good book.
Yes it was, interesting with the historical facts and the intrigues in the 40 and 50-ies.
Most certainly, well written but no wow.
Yes, he has a clear and energetic voice.
Well, I would like to understand how much time the book took to research.
The book is good, but no real interesting events or facts, some interviews have obviously been done, but most of it is factual from transcripts and other public information. That per se does not add real value or gives the "wow-factor".
Fast, sellable, funny
No not really, but story is a page turner I will have admit that.
The main character HP is not very beliveable and the language used is very naive and pathetic, but interesting.
No but I laughed a few times.
The story is a copy cat of the Michael Douglas movie "The Game" but with more hi-tech features and a bigger, darker more conspiratoric depth and context. Overall very good book, but could use better and not so pathetic language...
Perhaps - but this one is too superficial, no details and missing a lot of context.
Den motvillige monarken - which links this book with the Gudfadern - Milan Sevo. The three books are somewhat adressing the same events.
The taped discussions with the friends of His Majesty the King.
No I would not.
The book is obviously written to comment on the involvement with the King - but that would not fill up a full book. Therefore they tell the story of Daniel Webb - which is not very interesting and lacks all the details that would make it interesting. But that would probably get him into trouble.
