I last visited China in 1999. You could feel the change in the air. Kynge captures the tempo and the drive of China. To understand what the Chinese approach to life and competition, is to know how to counter the actions. This book helps one understand how China is reshaping itself and thus the world markets,
Lee Child has started to make his plots more complex. He places Reacher in a different environment than we have seen him before. He has to figure out more angles than in the past. And as always, Reacher comes across as a big guy who thinks fast.

I was expecting a fast paced Wolfe work and got an art lecture. I now know more about something that I really did not neet to have confirmed...modern art is anything but "art."
The details are rich but it drags from time to time. It would have been better to spend a little less time proving the brutality of war and represive governments.
It is not hard to keep up with all the players and you do know how it is going to end. But the interaction between the characters and ethinc groups keeps your interest up.
The plots are winding together and some fresh characters are needed. Alion has to be getting tired between restoring the paints, trying to get his wife pregnant, and saving the world.
This book has taken a fair amount of facts and woven a tale of what can happen. The micro copters exist. Swarming is being worked. Insect cultures are understood. And all of this technology is coming together with Moore's law. This book should help trigger the debate on how robots are used and under what conditions, they are made autonomus! read this book and get others to read it...this is closer to today than you think.
Davenport continues to expand his story and the side characters keep rolling in. You gotta love Letty....a chip off the old block
The writer does a good job making this subject very intresting instead of dry. You cannot help but root for the first year member of the firm. You also will have no trouble wishing the rest of the firm ill. That said, this a good explination in how investment bankers make their money at the expense of everyone else.
This is a very entertaining book. We all know that our senses of smell and taste are powerful, We also know that food is a primal urge. Finally, we know that sex is a powerful emotion. Now all come together in a book about Sicily, people, and food. A very entertaining read that will leave you wanting more...you just have to devide more of which!
