I totally disagree with Zipread too. It's a great story. Lots of historical information that we in the West have the distance to ignore. A great love story. Fun read. Will take a day.
Totally disagree with 'Zipread', Cumming is now the master of the modern spy thriller. One can read how the present world of espionage really is, and be absorbed by the complex mix of actual facts mixed with his fiction.
Cumming shows a remarkable understanding of historical situations, and their impact on present day world events.
Typhoon by Charles Cumming This is one of those books that one might struggle to read. You know the kind: the one with exciting bits wedged in among stuff that is boring at best. What kind of fool reads 150 pages of a book before chucking it? Reading a book is sort of a contract between a reader who promises to read faithfully and with understanding even if all of the book isn’t electrifyingly engaging. The author, on the other hand, promises to write a book that will engage the reader’s interest and engagement. I held up my en d of the bargain but I’m not sure this book holds up the author’s end of the deal. Time to move on.
