Kirja-arvosteluja

This book started off all right, but I found the explanation of the person behind the plot convoluted and hard to follow.

Surprisingly fun. It starts out as if it were going to be a mystery novel, then drifts into being a Chandleresque detective novel, with the main character being sapped and waking tied up in a deserted house,. It then evolves into a Bondish super villain extravaganza. Great action -well realized hand to hand combat fights. I listened to this as an audiobook, but I'm pretty sure I have a copy with the original cover from the 60s. Have to check if there's another MacClean novel in the pile...I'm keen to take a look at another.… (lisätietoja)

I truly loved this book :) So many adventures, so emotional and gripping, I couldn't stop reading it. We've got this great submarine Dolphin going to the rescue of a group of people lost somewhere in the North - and that's just the beginning, there are so many mysteries, lies, twists and turns, reading this book was an amazing experience. Five stars.

At first it seems it's simply a dangerous rescue mission, but soon we realise there is much more going on. I really enjoyed the fast pace of the book, its humour and many twists. Extremely entertaining, fun, fast read, I loved this book. I think I fell in love with Schaffer a bit. Five stars.
