One of the best and most interesting books I've ever read. Focusing on the background of al Qaeda's top two leaders (bin Laden and al Zawahiri) it reads like a novel but provides insight into the world that produced the men responsible for 9/11.
if only current presidents were so damn cool! theodore roosevelt was an unbelievably intelligent, courageous, determined man who proved his mettle AFTER his presidency on an uncharted river in the Amazon. (Full of horribly entertaining jungle details, too!)
There has been so much fuss about this book and the author ----I was very much looking forward to reading it. I respect this book and the author, but was it worthy of the praise heaped:? Not to me. Amazing and compelling story - you don't want to put it down, because it is a terrifically dysfunctional family that you do sympathize with - (being set in modern times with modern problems that we are all aware of )- but it is not one that will stay with me long into the future --(although my son and I had some terrific discussions about the book- and he thought it was magnificent!) It was interesting to me that this author is a New Yorker and lives in Santa Cruz - two of the best places!! And that he has no children, and I don't think has been married On one hand that gave him the time and energy to observe and make amazing assumptions and observations about families, their children, and marriages. And I believe he made some brilliant observations, but I'm just saying......maybe that is what did not hit me in the stomach - his detachment on some level....One thing that really struck me about Jonathoan Franzen is that he can write a woman or man voice and thoughts and feelings seamlessly.....He nailed both - I would not have known if this was a male or female writer.
Story of a former CIA spy who is now working as a private investigator and having trouble keeping his old aliases ("legends") straight in his head. Book explores his past incarnations, moving from Brooklyn to Beirut to Triple Border (Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil), and a lot of former Soviet countries. Ultimately focuses on the huge mafia activity and the freewheeling capitalism in post-Soviet Russia. A little cheesily worded at times, but still kind of awesome.

Ne yazık ki bu kitapları hiçbir zaman çocuk olarak okumadım, bu yüzden yetişkin zihnim yaratıcı sıçramalar yapmakta biraz zorluk çekti, ama bir kez yaptıklarında, bunların nasıl klasik hale geldiğini kolayca görebiliyordum. Bu kitap dizisi nedeniyle, kendimizden daha büyük bir şeyin parçası olduğumuzu nasıl bilmemiz, düşünmemiz, inanmamız ve fark etmemiz gerektiğini hatırlattım.
