Hello to the beautiful world,
Sorry for being out of action for so long but it has just been a hectic summer. And through my messed up routine, I have finally managed to finish reading ‘The Afghan’ by Frederick Forsyth.
I have a few things to say about this book- it is good, even when ‘goodreads.com’ told me otherwise. The plot is quite quick paced so a person like me who doesn’t understand military and secret intelligence vocabulary, can have a hard time to keep up and there are many perspectives in the story covered at the same time, there is nothing revealed later, so the reader doesn’t have a hard time figuring out what is going to happen. Therefore, it doesn’t let reader rest; there is always something happening.
Although, there is one thing that the ‘Goodreads’ reviewers mentioned that I agree with. Forsyth dives into knowledge that is too common these days. The thrill comes solely from the mission covered in the plot, not by what is mentioned in the daily news.
Overall it is a good book. That’s it.
