it was ok
bookshelves: done-reading
Read in January, 2007

God, this is so bland. I kept trying to come up with analogies for it while I was reading it - which says it all, really, considering it's meant to be this FAST-PACED, SUPER EXCITING THRILLER - but it's so nothingy. I bought it because the MC spends the first five minutes angsting about never having quite managed to figure out the dress code thing for life at MI5, because that sounded very me, but it doesn't get past that. I mean, you'd imagine that's meant to be the Endearing Feature about her, but it's not, because the result of it is that she spends her life being thoroughly overdressed - too elegant, you know :) :) :) what a trial for her :) :) :) - but even that doesn't matter because she just HAPPENS to get invited out for special dinners for which she is perfectly dressed. It should've been a sign, really, that a book supposedly about the most dangerous sort of terrorist opens with the MC worrying about her plum-coloured shoes getting damp.
