Richard A Clarke image from The TelegraphThis is not a novelist’s novel Clark is a good writer but not a gifted fiction writer Still the point of the book is not the literary merit Clark is trying to show one possible result of “if things go on as they have been” It is not a pretty sight He populates his tale with players designed for their expository value It is clear that the viewpoints presented are intended to represent viewpoints held by specific actors in the real stage of international politics I enjoyed reading the book and was uite able to get past the clumsiness of Clarke’s fictional style He portrays a Saudi Arabia transformed by fundamentalists into Islamyah but with Islamists who inhabit the real world and with whom one can negotiate in good faith He portrays an Iran bent on conuest less by military means than by stealth and intrigue He shows extremist American interests bent on faith based instead of reality based designs This provides a bit of viscera to the ongoing mystery that is the Middle East cauldron Recommended for its content not its style but definitely recommendedEXTRA STUFFLinks to Richard A Clarke at his personal site and on TwitterClarke On his writing process
