    This book wasn t too bad, but it could have been a lot better.There were little things such as the main characters surname Samuel Spendlove which I found corny Perhaps it s acommon name in Britain or Europe however this reader, an Australian, has never heard of such a surname and it became rather annoying to read again and again.Then there were larger things like the extremely unlikely conspiracy.Overall it s not the sort of book that will keep you up all night because you have to This...

    Not a bad book but not one that would keep you up all nite just so that you can read the next chapter.Basic plot is beliveable and enjoyable although when delved into, various issues arise for realism The characters didnt particularly appeal and i think the writer relied on the readers imagination to fill in blanks, without doing much to fan the readers creativity.Almost felt like a first draft that the publisher should have sent back to him with the words, Like the plot, but needsNot a bad book but not one that would keep you up all nite just so that you can read the next chapter.Basic plot is beliveable and enjoyable although when delved into, various issues arise for realism The characters didnt particularly appeal and i think the writer relied on the readers imagination to fill in blanks, without doing much to fan the readers creativity.Almost felt like a first draft that the publisher should have sent back to him with the words, Like the plot,...

    Could have been a good book, but really stretched the bounds of credibility in every area it went to Slid pretty quickly into melodrama, so if that s your thing, you ll probably like it Not as many plot holes as the Da Vinci Code, but similarly unbelievable.
