David Ignatius Î 2 Summary

Read Ù PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Î David Ignatius The Director Download ä 102 S the agency has been hacked and he has a list of agents' names to prove it This is the moment a CIA director most dreads Like the new world of cyber espio. This is my first read as part of my I Want Michiko s Job challenge where I read every book Kakutani reviews I did not enjoy this book on several levels At the outset I was intrigued by the relevant topic of the NSA Wikileaks and cyber hacking but as the plot moved forward things began to fall apart and lose momentum One issue I had was parts of the book felt incredibly dull which is weird for a thriller I wouldn t even say it was because things were technical I would say it was in the writing It felt like a rote listing or report than a novel The other big issue was the characters and their dialogue Several people especially the main character Graham Weber were held up to be geniuses at the top of their field but that never felt believable And with all characters the dialogue felt stiff and forced Sometimes I felt like I was reading the script of a soap opera or Lifetime type movie to be honest I enjoy a well crafted thriller for instance I just read Pavone s Expats and thought it was great but for me this was mainly seizing on a buzz topic and ultimately left me with a hokey aftertaste
