it was amazing
Read in March, 2011

I'll be honest most thillers I will rate a 3 star. No I'm not a pedant, or a book-snob I just enjoy thrillers/espionage/war/suspense novels for the pure sake of escapism. Satori is different it is as good as the synopsis says and to use my stock of unimaginative cliches(isn't that redundant?)aren't cliches used for their unimaginative stock value in the first place? All around great read!!! One theme I did like is: two main characters(are adversaries) thinking one in the "Western linear thought process of chess", and the other using a non-linear thought system based on the oriental game "go". This makes for an interesting sub-theme as they engage each other; and react according to these diametrically opposed stratagems, exemplified in their brutal attempts to thwart each others machinations "with extreme prejudice". Thankyou. Happy reading.
