    Love MacIntyre, not this book

    I love the way Linden MacIntyre writes, simply but with deep complexity. But I preferred The Bishop's Man and Why Men Lie over this book, which I found too cryptic for my taste.

    Well written, disjointed.

    MacIntyre is a good writer, but this is a disappointment. Successive chapters move back and forth in time, there are multiple locales in several countries, characters change names and nicknames, so much so even the good writing could not stop me from putting aside this book many times. I finally managed to get through to the end, but it wasn't worth it.

    The Only Cafe

    Excellent, informative, educational, exciting read. Typical Linden MacIntyre. Through this book, I came to understand better some of the conflict in the Middle East and I trust MacIntyre to be faithful to actual events without exaggeration. Cyril, the main protagonist, was a pain in the neck re personal relationships but his tenacity re uncovering the truth was admirable. 5+ stars for this one.

    The Only Cafe

    I found this a most compelling read. I enjoyed the fact that Linden MacIntyre based the book upon his research as a reporter and wove it into a fascinating novel. His books are intense character sketches and they certainly never end tidily. For that I am grateful. This is the third novel of his that I have read and I have thoroughly enjoyed each one.

    The Only Cafe

    Very well written of course. A great story from a gifted author the carnage is hard for north americans to comprehend. We are very fortunate.
