This was quite a pleasant surprise. A book pretty much like an above average popcorn Hollywood blockbuster granting the reader hours of fast entertainment and excitement. I enjoyed the consporational plot that involves all kinds of people from high politics, the lack of moral of those behind it all and how the plot developed and was played out in general. Especially interesting: This was written a few years ago (2008, if I remember correctly) and it predicted quite a lot of things right. I had ...more

Eine spannende und beängstigende Geschichte, die sehr intelligent konzipiert ist.
Leider dauerte es aufgrund des vielschichtigen und verworrenen Aufbaus knapp ein Drittel des Buches, bis ich hineinkam.
Im Endeffekt wurde ich aber mit einer ereignisreichen Geschichte voll unverhersehbarer Wendungen belohnt.

Excess: the Art of Treason reads like a conspiracy theorist’s wet-dream, where government machinations just might be behind every disaster and assassination that ever took place. The main plot (or at least, that’s what we’re led to believe) revolves around a group of super-rich elites who decide the only chance for the world to survive its constant warfare is a single, world-wide government, which they would control of course. But how do you convince the citizens of all the countries of the ...more

Ich möchte mich nicht mit einer Inhaltsbeschreibung aufhalten, denn es ist schlichtweg unmöglich den Inhalt zusammenzufassen, ohne etwas dabei zu verraten. Also wird dieser Programmpunkt wegfallen und ich widme mich stattdessen dem, was dieses Buch ausmacht und das ist eine ganze Menge!
Politthriller haben es an sich, dass sie aus einem verzweigten und zum Teil schwierigen Geflecht an Erzählsträngen und Personenkonstellationen bestehen. Das macht das Lesen oft leider ziemlich anstregend, wobei da

Nice plot. For a book written some years back the autor had a pretty good hand in forseeing todays economical state of the US. I loved how the viewpoint did not reveal every detail of the plan and the reader only discovered it piece by piece. The resolution was .... you will not get any spoilers from me...read for yourself. ;-)

Die ersten zwei Drittel des Buchs sind spannend und toll zu lesen, das letzte Drittel baut leider erheblich ab und die Auflösung enttäuscht, nachdem die Geschehnisse sowieso schon entwertet wurden.
Auf Grund der guten zwei Drittel belasse ich es mal bei vier Sternen. Für Verschwörungstheoretiker ist das Werk auf jeden Fall einen Blick wert.

Nettes Erstlingswerk mit einer interessanten, aber auch irgendwie recht abwegigen Story über eine fiktive Verschwörung, in der aber wohl eventuell auch ein Fünkchen Wahrheit steckt. Das Buch hat einen netten Spannungsaufbau und ein schnelles Erzähltempo.

The worst fictional book I've read in the last 3 years. Full of unlikable characters.

Have been interested in the lesser known moments of history and - hold your breath - deep politics for the last twenty years; don't explain anymore why I don't consider myself a conspiracy theorist.
