Awesome is the word for this book. This is a book from a person with high IQ, likely to be over 120. Here are my reasons: (1)The story unfolds within a period of one year with a large number of charecters playing their role. Frederick Forsyth has shown an unparelleled skill in crafting their roles carefully and the timing for bringing them into the story. (2) His understanding of US, Europe and Middle East is so great that places and cultures fit very well into the story line. (3) The story is n ...more

Read it for Quinn the main protagonist. This novel is spine chilling with twists and turns, that will make you lose your way deep inside the novel. When you come out of it, you ll feel like the one who built the maze. Hats off to "the master story teller".

A 1998 Forsyth thriller has the US and Russia worried about the supply and cost of oil which is pushing $20 a barrel. The US President and Russia’s Gorbachev are about to sign a disarmament treaty that has Military hardliners on both sides angry at loss of funds and material. A US oil Barron who talks to God and gets personal responses has gathered a group of oil men and industrialists, all who stand to loose big money if the treaty goes through, in a plot to get the US President out of office.

Leer un libro de Frederick Forsyth es enfrentarte a una lectura con acción, con muchísimo ritmo, con unos personajes algo estereotipados, sin demasiada profundidad, pero ¿buscamos eso o entretenimiento sin más?

Una historia en la que se mezclan personajes reales (Margaret Thatcher o Mijail Gorbachov), supongo que con la idea de hacer más creíble la historia, con un presidente de Estados Unidos ficticio y que trata temas muy actuales en la época en la que fu

Just finished reading "The Negotiator" by Frederick Forsyth, an international espionage thriller involving more than a dozen countries and a plot that keeps you riveted to the book. Brilliant.

I pulled this one from my book store because I was looking for a Cold War era thriller and have not yet read much from Mr Forsyth. I understand that he does an enormous amount of research for his books and that certainly showed here. This was a well-though out novel and well-structured even though it suffers from amazingly bad publishing timing. It was written in the late 1980s and the traditional Cold War relationship between the US and USSR continues throughout the novel. Of course the author ...more

The first two chapters of The Negotiator were very slow and uninteresting and I feared that this would be a tedious read. Fortunately, the pace began to pick up and I became immersed in the story. The plot contains several sub-plots (all of which are satisfactorily wrapped up in the conclusion), a number of interesting characters (notably the protagonist, Quinn), a number of neat settings (Vermont, Washington D.C., Corsica, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Russia, Texas, and others, all of whic ...more

Saya mulai menyukai pengarang ini, segala detail yang terkait dengan hubungan, intrik, maupun konspirasi internasional, teknik negosiasi, teknik spionase dijelaskan oleh Forsyth di buku ini.

Beberapa orang menganggap novel-novel yang dibuatnya merupakan "investigative journalism in fictional guise", mengambil hal-hal yang nyata terjadi, pernah terjadi, atau bisa saja terjadi yang diblurkan dengan cerita fiksi dan gabungan antara karakter nyata dan fiksi.

The book was excellent, a typical Frederick Forsyth masterpiece.... It gave me new insights into the oil scenario of the world, the vanity and selfishness of American companies in and about kidnapping in high profile cases..... Also how the inner functions of the American and British bodies like the COBRA work..In all an awesome book, a fun read, and recommended to all ...keep reading :)

Superb.... awesome.... what else can I say.... What a suspence.... what a narration..... At the beginning it looks like a boring novel but after some 20 pages the momentum gains and after that, whenever I found some free time available, I read it.

Shelves: thrillers
Frequently wooden, occasionally terrible, prose; rather too much tell-not-show; an excess of cardboard characters; a big fat cliche involving a pretty FBI agent who wins the hero's heart; the road map of Europe described in excessive detail... this book is full of faults.

BUT! It's a cracking story! The pace, slow at first, builds to a fabulous crescendo. Forsyth's dialogue is crisp and on point, the way people actually talk. The twists keep you turning the pages until way past your bedtime. The

3.5 stars. Decent Cold War intelligence novel: a good easy read, but the ending missed a climax and didn't tie all the different story lines together as much, while they were carefully built-up. Characters were a bit stereotypical, but not in an annoying way. Good novel to take your mind off of things in the holidays

This book took a little while for me to get into it.......I almost gave up! But it's Frederick Forsyth!! so I persevered and was very happy I did. Very interesting story with some twists and a clever plot.

Too long. So many cinematic twists...

Una novela llena de acción e intriga con giros bruscos y resultados inesperados que mantienen al lector al borde de la silla desde el principio. Lo usual del autor.

Un bel thriller: non ai livelli di Quarto protocollo o de Il giorno dello sciacallo dello stesso autore ma resta comunque un romanzo scorrevole e godibile.

Love the way how Frederick Forsyth details the story through the middle and keeps the grip till almost the end of the book.

Buku pertama yang telah dibaca (The Day of the Jackal) dari sang penulis memberikan kesan pertama yang luar biasa. Frederick Forsyth alias FF memberikan jaminan no.1 buat sebuah cerita kriminal, saya angkat topi untuk Penerbit Serambi yang menerbitkannya di Indonesia. Meskipun beberapa typo di buku ini, tidak mengurangi rasa antusias buat menghabiskan TN. Sungguh karya terbaru FF ini merupakan cerita yang memukau!

Singkat cerita buku ini merupakan sebuah jalinan cerita yang saling terkait, ibarat
Entah ini spoiler atau bukan, tapi kalo nda nyeritain begini nda enak ngereview na.

Cerita berlatar belakang era nya Gorbachev, dan yah seperti biasa presiden Amerikanya bukan nama yang sebenarnya.

Masih ingat dengan Mikhail Gorbachev yg mencetuskan glastnost dan perestroika? Mikhail Gorbachev yang itu? Oke kalo dah ingat, kan enak gw nyeritain *lho?*

The reader almost despairs of a story getting under way in Forsyth's latest: the situation takes so long to set up, and is mired in such wearisome detail. Finally, after it has been made clear that both a renegade Soviet military group and a fanatical Texan oil baron plan to take over an oil-rich Middle Eastern state for their different twisted reasons, the action begins. The son of the American president (who is about to sign a major arms agreement with Gorbachev himself

We read so much about kidnapping and then associated negotiations to get the hostages rescued but rarely we get to know what exactly happens during negotiations. Frederick Forsyth has brought that aspect of negotiations in this book “The Negotiator” with all the details in his usual style. On the face of it the book is a usual thriller that involves peace treaty between US and Russia and the evil enemies trying to destroy the treaty for their financial gains and se

كتاب از جندين موضوع مختلف كه كمك كم در طي داستان همگرا ميشوند تشكيل شده است و همچون ساير آثار فردريك فورسايت، اوقات بسيار لذتبخشي را در طي مطالعه آن گذراندم.
ترجمه ي كتاب هم خيلي روان و خوب بود.
