The historical frame, including an alternate view of why Germany turned its wartime focus from England to the USSR, proves fascinating; the pace is agreeably fast; and the intelligent, capable Klimt makes an engaging lead character.
High-speed chases, explosions, gunfights, murders and questionable romantic encounters add to the book's action. An intriguing 'what if' adventure about Hitler and WWII.
It is a masterpiece of speculative revisionism and in this aspect a captivating read, a romp.
I devoured it. It combines elements of a political thriller and a historical novel. A thrill-filled surprise, which keeps you in awe of developments.
A fascinating read for both conspiracy theorists and thriller fans.
Hold on to your seats, readers, because this is a thrill ride of a story, made even more exciting because it's all so current and feels very real. I really liked the character of Dr. Larissa Klimt...she's as complex as the story she is telling. It will definitely satisfy the appetite of the conspiracy theorists out there, and it's a good mystery too.
Silver romps through history dropping names like so many is a highly entertaining, tongue-in-cheek tale.
The Bookworm by Mitch Silver is a gripping thriller....
This was a well-written story. Silver has quite the imagination, which made the book interesting and fun to read. Silver's storytelling skills are strong...the character development is solid and the building of the suspenseful atmosphere is great.
This novel has ties to certain political figures that we currently have in office...It also has ties to the Russian and American relationship that is currently unfolding. Silver does an excellent job with keeping mysteries and intrigue going throughout the novel and interweaving interesting bits so that the reader is continuously engaged. I was captivated the entire time...
The build-up of tension was steady throughout, with excellent pacing for the reveals of the historical and modern conspiracies. The writing was engaging and kept me hooked. The characters were well crafted and suited to their respective roles in the story.
Silver's novel flows smoothly...A very well done novel indeed.
The Bookworm is that very rare, almost extinct thriller: well plotted, intelligent as hell, with a truly memorable main character--'Lara The Bookworm.' This is definitely sterling Silver!
The Bookworm packs a punch similar to that of a Dan Brown novel. It uses a quasi-historical fiction plot mixed with thriller that sees our heroine attempt to solve a mystery by using her mind more than her actions. Combine that with the back-and-forth between the 1940's and present day and The Bookworm has all ingredients in the recipe for my favorite kind of books.
This is fast and fun, with one of the best McGuffins I've ever's an exciting tale...
