What's not to love about Silva's new spy novel! Have to wait a year to maybe see how the final scene plays out. Thank you, Mr Silva, for your timely stories with history and art lessons so artfully applied. It is a joy to read your books! As a retired high school AP 12 English teacher, I especially enjoyed the allusions to Shakespeare's MACBETH and the Greek term for the tragic flaw in this novel. Wondering if my former students remember our studies as fondly as I do. Ms B, GHS
DISCLAIMER: I received an ARC yesterday which guaranteed an honest review and no spoilers. I have read all Daniel Silva's Books sometimes in 2 or 3 days I read this in 8 hours with only brief stops. This is masterful and definitely his best. He makes no secret of the fact that he stopped after 250 pages because of current events and then thought of a way to redeem the leader of Saudi Arabia. By page 34 I was completely fascinated and having trouble breathing. However, throughout the book the author intersperses humor and wit and uses the same phrases repeatedly which is something regular readers have come to appreciate. He makes you laugh while you are so completely enthralled you can't put the book down. He also doesn't hesitate to tear out your heart. He cobbles together actual political events such as the death of a journalist and the rise into power of a tyrant and know that you have to accept an imperfect ally and how to turn them into an asset. This becomes a completely believable narrative and one that by the end of the book you could wish to be true. A believable fairy tale. But not all fairy tales end with a handsome prince kissing the princess. This is definitely his best work. I may have thought that before but I KNOW that this is it.
"The New Girl" pulls you right in to Gabriel Allon's 2019 adventure and quest for freedom and truth. Silva's lyrical writing that gives us a new adventure with old friends and contemporary situations and circumstances makes a welcome return. An delightful and fun part of summer begins!
