Solid read, enjoyed it enough to read the second. Great character development and I learned a lot of history ( )

I couldn't finish this book, it was really hard to separate for myself the anti-Palestinian message through the first 1/4 of the book for me. It's a shame because I really wanted to like this book and read the whole series! Maybe I can give it another shot another time.

I've read a few of the Gabriel Allon mystery series but decided to read the series in order. This is the first in the series and I have to say I'm impressed with the writing in this book. The characters are complicated -- even the 'good guy's have their flaws. And the plot twists -- wow, I have to say there were plenty of surprises in this story. Definitely looking forward to the rest of this series. ( )

This sets the stage for the series. Gives you deeper insight into where Allon comes from and why his relationship with Shamron is so complex. The plot build and builds, beautifully. We follow the multiple twists and turns always wondering what's next. While it reads easily the complexity of the turns makes it harder and harder to accept as possible. While much feels very reasonable the end product definitely requires the suspension of disbelief. Can we really accept the target talks himself out of being killed or the person we believed for hundreds of pages was really one of good guys rather than the evil person be had seemed throughout. A quite and very satisfying read, but... ( )

I read this on the recommendation of a friend, but I'm no longer friends with that person.

Ok, no, that's not true. I guess I was hoping it would be Alan Furst or John Le Carre, and it wasn't. That's probably too high a standard, but I couldn't get past the occasionally clumsy writing, the constant insistence that we be awed by how many languages these superspies spoke, and the hamhanded attempts at being About Stuff. (Specifically, Israel v. Palestine.) Characters talked about their beliefs, but there wasn't anything I hadn't heard before. There wasn't anything anyone who would read the book hadn't heard before: everyone hates everyone and there's killing and revenge and it's an endless Hatfield vs. McCoy cycle, etc.

I probably would have given the book three stars for being competent if not for the ending -- it's a basic rule of writing these types of books that you can't bring your twist out of nowhere. It's cheating, it's unfair to the reader. It makes you feel hollow inside at the end. "That's what the deal was? But ... well, where did that come from?"

This particular ending was lousy because not only was there an unannounced twist, but it didn't actually twist anything. That is, suppose it's a murder mystery, and we're moving toward A having been the killer, or a choice between A and B. Then the twist: it was actually C! Here, it's more like we got to the end, found out it was actually A who was the killer, and then we found out that C also stole some cookies back on page 10. What do we care?
