A Library Thing Review, "The Network"

"The Network" by Jason Elliot.  A pre-9/11 spy/adventure novel set in Afghanistan.  While normally avoiding "first person" viewpoint novels, I was 150 pages into this book, before I even noticed.  The author paints a very personal account, with vivid characters.  One gets into the mindset of a reluctant, but capable spy, thrust into the world changing climate of Afghanistan. Behind the scenes politics and back door deals at many levels provide some insights into what Terrorism is really about.  This book is a great read!
