This is my second read of a book by Dan Silva. It continues in the Gabriel Allon series, and between this and Death in Vienna, I liked this one more. I think chronologically it takes place after Death, but I am not sure the sequence matters.
This one was faster-paced, and seemed to have more action and intrigue. Both books, really, educated me more on issues related to Israel in modern times. 5 years ago
Based on a recommendation, I started with this book by Dan Silva. I meet Gabriel Allon, an Israeli secret agent, and we follow his adventures. The book was pretty good, although I had some trouble with all the names and personalities.
This book is part of a series Silva has put out that continue the story of the main character, Gabriel Allon. The book was easy to read and approachable; I imagine this one or one like it could make for a good movie. 5 years ago
From the Henrico Library I found this on the shelf; after seeing Ben on CBS Sunday Morning some time ago, I was interested in checking out some of his work. I thumbed through his Miscellenany at the bookstore, but decided to try the almanac at home. 5 years ago
I’m jealous he’s had so much of his head into so much (he’s a year younger than I!). This is kind of like a compendium of information—trivia and news—over the past 1-2 years. Some facts/figures I found helpful; I plan on using some of the new words from technology and science in an upcoming presentation.
I am not sure I’d buy this book to keep on my self; I’m far too reliant upon the Web and not affluent enough. But it’s a well-done work; beautifully typeset in Slimbach’s Adobe Garamond font, and it was a wonderful companion to thumb-through as I listened to music on the hi-fi.
