  • The Hungry Tide

    Internationally best-selling author Amitav Ghosh, winner of the Pushcart Prize and numerous other prestigious accolades, pens a sweeping novel full of romantic adventure. Favorably compared to the masterworks of Joseph Conrad and V.S. Naipaul, The Hungry Tide is an atmospheric tale set in a world of wondrous sights...and terrible danger.

    Story

    If anyone makes it to the end of this book, please let me know if anything ever happens! The reader was so good that he made it SOUND like something was or would happen, but I sure didn't get to that far, if it did.

    For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance?

    Story

    Clancy has done his usual good research on the background of the latest location for his novel to play out. However, the only other new twist in this novel is that the hero is an incompetent, brooding misfit who would not have been assigned to such a vast array of critically important missions. I felt sorry for the narrator, who did a good job despite having to read list after list of descriptions of military weapons and airline flights.

    Welcome to Ringworld, an intermediate step between Dyson Spheres and planets. The gravitational force created by a rotation on its axis of 770 miles per second means no need for a roof. Walls 1,000 miles high at each rim will let in the sun and prevent much air from escaping. Larry Niven's novel, Ringworld, is the winner of the 1970 Hugo Award for Best Novel, the 1970 Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the 1972 Ditmars, an Australian award for Best International Science Fiction.

    Kennet says: "Genuinely Creative"
    "Get a Dr. Seuss instead - you'll be glad you did"
    Overall

    What a waste of time! Silly and insignificant are the best words I know to describe it.

    Perry and Gail are idealistic and very much in love when they splurge on a tennis vacation at a posh beach resort in Antigua. But the charm begins to pall when a big-time Russian money launderer enlists their help to defect. In exchange for amnesty, Dima is ready to rat out his compatriots and expose corruption throughout the so-called legitimate financial and political worlds. Soon, the guileless couple find themselves pawns in a deadly endgame.

    Darwin8u says: "Human heart in conflict with itself"
    "Did le Carre die before he finished this book?"
    Overall

    I blamed a technical glitch for the absence of an ending to this book, only to learn after11 1/2 hours that the abrupt ending was no mistake. Surely he could have made his point in fewer words that bankers, politicians, criminals, and secret government agents are in cahoots to get rich at our expense.
