I can't comment, in that I gave up on the book about 20% into in. The plot seemed too implausible, and characters too over the top, and I just couldn't buy into the story. I felt I could foresee the likely outcome, and decided to cut my losses and move on to another book. ( )

Demille's books tend to be tomes, but they hold my interest, and seem to be well researched where needed. This was one of his best. ( )

I like it. Read it in two days.

between 2 and 2.5 stars. i hate the voice of john corey so much that i almost didn't make it past the first 40 or so pages of this book. he is such a bombastic asshole and i can't believe that demille has made him his hero, and that people go for this shit. i cannot stand him.

luckily, this book had another point of view early on that really brought me in. and an idea for the terrorist threat that was actually interesting and exciting. by the time it was narrated only by corey, i was involved enough to keep going. but i don't think i can read another corey book; he is absolutely insufferable. (and it's not even slightly believable that a strong, smart woman like kate would even associate with him, much less marry him. not a chance in the world. men just like to think they can act like despicable pigs and still get the fiercest woman in the room, but it usually doesn't work that way. those women would eviscerate him. i am certain that kate would, so the entire relationship is unrealistic and rings false in the extreme.)

here's what i like about this one, though: this takes place a little over a year after 9/11, and it was written when a ton of thrillers were all about islamic terror and all the brown terrorists that were coming to destroy america. this book flips that on its head by being about a rich white guy that wants to destroy islam and muslim people. so to save the world, it's saving islam and muslims and trying to stop a white american. (it's not *entirely* framed that way, though, but it is the main concept.) the idea was really good and it was even well executed. i just really hate the way he writes this macho man and how he's sending a message to readers that this is an okay way to be a person in the world. if not for that (which makes me want to rate the book 1/2 star) it would be rated higher. it makes me think that i could keep reading demille, just not his corey books. ( )

A bit too macho for my taste. I don't care too much for the lead character -- although he does voice humorous bits now and again. The story line is okay and it's not too difficult to fall into. I doubt I'll pick up another book by this author. ( )
