The Other Woman (Gabriel Allon #18) Reviews
I read Daniel Silva to get his 'take' on current international events and players. I know it's not gospel, but his POV truly informs the news.
Now he's turned his laser onto Russia and Putin...for several books we've had Gabriel battling Putin's SVR, his version of the KGB. As always, events in the novel directly mirror what we see developing in front of our faces...and it's chilling. It's easy to see the events in his book happening.
Gabriel can't leave the field, and he even brings Ari back, wh ...more
Gabriel Allon returns to do battle with the Russians again in another exciting novel by Daniel Silva. The usual cast of characters make their appearances, though the focus is mostly on Allon and Graham Seymour. There are several twists and turns in the plot that keep you guessing and thinking. Silva does a masterful job of weaving in real history and current events into his fictional world. I always enjoy reading his Author Notes after the novel to see what is based on real life and what is made ...more
I had been looking forward to this book as a fun, fast-paced summer thriller, but I am sorry to say, I was left disappointed. The story felt disjointed, Gabriel boring and the pace quite slow until the last few hours. The writing is good, but the story just wasn't compelling for me this time, though I know I am in the minority feeling this way. I listened to the audiobook, and George Guidall's is, as always, a pleasant voice to have in one's ear, but apart from that, I didn't love this one.
DISCLAIMER: I received an ARC which I ensured I would review truthfully. There will be no spoilers I promise. I read a review I posted two years ago and I'm not sure how I can surpass but I'll try. Firstly, MAGNIFICENT comes to mind. The author always claims that his books are fiction but his knowledge of the subject and the area and the Tsar and Russia's intereference in world politics makes you wonder as you're reading which characters are real and which the author has just 'tweaked'. It's lik ...more
I'm a long-time fan of Daniel Silva and look forward to the new Gabriel Allon novel every summer. In 2015, I re-read the whole series in order, in anticipation of the release of The English Spy. Over the last 18 years, I've developed a lot of affection for the growing international cast of characters in Gabriel's orbit: his Israeli team, his wife, the bigwigs in other foreign intelligence services, even the pope and *his* people.
The beginning of The Other Woman was a little slow, and I was wor ...more
The Other Woman, Gabriel Allon #18, Daniel Silva (USA)
Spy fiction!!! Tiring...disappointing. Figured out the mole very early in.... There are way too many characters, locations, background stories, hype..... Almost need a storyboard to follow and really once you have read a couple of these spy thrillers they are just too similar. 3/5
Silva’s 18th offering in the ‘spy versus spy’ series featuring Israeli intelligence agency chief Gabriel Allon focuses more on spy tradecraft than action. Gabriel finds himself in the center of sensitive operations once again. [Wasn’t he supposed to be promoted to management?] He is working closely with his British counterpart, Graham Seymour; for he has discovered that MI6 has a Russian mole in a highly sensitive position. We can count on Allon to work out complicated clues and obtain key infor ...more
