MUST READ autor i serijal… Svaki put se knjiga sa žaljenjem zatvara posle poslednje pročitane strane i nestrpljivo čeka juli sledeće godine da izađe novi nastavak… U Srbiji je prevodi sjajna Žermen Filipović dobar poznavalac Izraela… 🙂
really liked it
I read the ‘Rembrandt Affair’ a year ago and really enjoyed Gabriel Allon, the Israeli spy and assassin who just can’t quit his job. I expect spies to have a lot of personal baggage – why else would they gravitate to a profession that requires isolation, deception, moral ambiguity and high ideals (whether it’s for a country, a religious belief, or personal gain). He had a rich background and I slipped very easily into the story, enjoying every moment. And then I found out it was the eleventh in
I felt compelled to go to the beginning, The Kill Artist, which is the first book in the series and where we first meet Gabriel Allon. And lo and behold, even then you understand that he’s already had his share of life, and death. Silva kicks off the series with a fully-formed Allon, a spy who has already lived the enviable James Bond-style life, had a family and great success, but who has lost it all.
For anyone who loves heavy doses of exotic locations and political intrigue mixed (sparingly) with pinches of real world leaders, this series is superb. Silva is extraordinarily knowledgable about world affairs and shares insightful commentary (through his characters), due to his journalism background (including CNN) and his stint as a correspondent in the Middle East during the Iran-Iraq war. I will admit that I didn’t know of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict origins and (if it’s accurately told) now I have a much better understanding – there are truly two sides to that conflict.
I’m looking forward to reading books 2-9 and now number 12. I have many, many good hours of reading ahead of me.
it was amazing
“Se estivermos a vigiar um alvo a partir de um café, não devemos fazer coisas que nos façam parecer estar a vigiar um alvo a partir do café, tais como ficarmos sentados sozinhos durante horas, a fingir estarmos a ler um jornal.”
Daniel Silva introduziu-me, da forma mais extraordinária, o mundo da espionagem. Pela primeira vez, este tema afigurou-se aos meus olhos, surpreendentemente sedutor, envolvente e enigmático. Cada vez que tive de interromper a leitura, para responder às minhas necessidades
