really liked it
bookshelves: detective, pure-novel, thrillers

The main problem I have with this whole series is that it's like reading the Swedish telephone directory; it's as fat and heavy as hell, and the names are so confusing. I have to keep retracking to find out who the bad guys and who the good guys are. And since that changes now and then, it's a tad frustrating.
The book is incredibly well researched...but that's another problem. TMI, as the acronym has it. And to use another, I CBA.
I reckon edited down to, say, 4 or 500 pages it'd be a five-star read. But it's worth four for sure.

Peter Must agree, Frenchy. Rather like when I tried reading those Russian classics. And I was reading them at 6am, on the way to army camp, so that was no help. Although, er, books like 'Hornet's Nest' prove that people still read, despite what art/creative directors keep insisting.

Neil Yup. I don't care what they read, as long as they read, hmmm?
