"Sinds Alexander eerst de Nijl veroverde voor hij eropuit trok om zijn oosterse veroveringen te behalen, heeft geen wereldrijk zich er meer aan gewaagd de dominantie over de wereld te claimen zonder een machtsbasis in het Midden-Oosten te hebben." (de Britse historicus John Kay).
De geografische positie als kruispunt tussen Azië, Afrika en Europa gaf de regio een strategische positie.

This has a lot of great reviews but I found it to be a bit disappointing. It is well written, and I agree that the author is great at creating unease, but for all the sneaking and planning, there is not a lot of drama in the story. It does have a fairly happy ending, which was unexpected, but it is clear that there will be a sequel and there is no definitive ending to the story.

The diary format is so contrived, and so little happens. I couldn't enjoy this.
