Couldn't finish this one. Two-dimensional characters, adolescent dialogue - I can't remember what else. What I do remember is feeling suckered by the good reviews on Amazon. I posted a negative review that somehow disappeared within days. Only time that's ever happened to me there. How do you make a negative review disappear?

Outstanding. Excellent writing. Somewhat reminiscient of a good John Le Carre novel. A good picture of life in the Middle East. Full of mystery and suspense.

I thought this book was great - educational, also a bit scary. Helps understand the purpose of having U.S. presence in Afganistan, for me anyway. I enjoyed it!
