      There s nothing like an intelligent, well thought out spy novel with believable characters and credible situations If that s your kind of novel, KEEP LOOKING This was horrible Indigestible and inexcusable.It s inexcusable when an author has supposedly smart people do stupid things But it gets even worse here Suspicious people accept information without question Secretive people talk to other people about their secrets A hardened terrorist yields to the pressure of being bored in prison to and so [...]

      This novel is one well crafted post 9 11 spy thriller with a highly elaborate plot The story starts when CIA agent Roger Ferris is sent on a mission to flush out a terrorist known as Suleiman In order to forestall further Al Qaeda attacks he develops an intricate scheme to pit the terrorists against each other by sowing seeds of suspicion that their leaders are collaborating with the Americans Unable to succeed alone, he requires the full support of his boss Ed Hoffman and with the help of Hani [...]

      I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book On the one hand, I enjoyed hearing about Ferris time in Jordan I felt like the best scenes were between Ferris and the Jordanian spy, Hani, and I also enjoyed the interplay between Roger and his boss Ed Hoffman These three characters were interesting and compelling to watch, although all of them were a little two diamensional.Where the book really fell down was introducing a love story between Ferris and an aid worker, Alice He seems to fall in love [...]

    5. Steven on said:

      Well paced, but as with almost all such stories, it suffers from being a bit juvenile in its characterizations over simplifying people and their motives and a bit formulaic in its construction However, based on the reporter s background, it is definitely well researched and quite a plausible plot The technical writing and spycraft aspects of the novel are its strongest cards, much like the better Tom Clancy books pre Op Center drivel I had already seen the film before picking up the book, so I k [...]

      I liked this book a lot and there are a lot of things I liked in it above all, the story is totally gripping, I could not put the book down, the last 50 pages are breathtaking The plot is constructed as a masterpiece of espionage fiction double games which become triple, quadruple.unbelievable I also liked the overall intellectual honesty I found in the novel, the non western centric view of things in Middle East, the brutally honest portrait of the CIA for what it actually is a gigantic minster [...]

      I learned sooo much from this book It helped me understand about the thoughts and principles of Arab Muslims I learned that America shoots herself in the foot in Arabia because we deal as arrogant interlopers Yes, we ve got the power, the money and the weapons, but it s their home.Body of Lies was full of adventure and spy story sizzle It would make a great movie starring Bruce Willis, if I got to choose There were surprises at every turn and took me on a thrilling ride all the way to a satisfy [...]

      Not up to the usual standards of this author s work Only one character was interesting and smart and he had too small of a role While the plot could have been fairly interesting, if the characters had not continuously done stupid things to propel it along, there was entirely too much focus on the MC s romances and the female characters were pretty laughable stereotypes Listened to the audio which was read by Dick Hill who does male characters fine but his female characters and the love scenes we [...]

      Great read David Ignatius keeps the story and suspense moving along while still developing the characters into human beings that I wanted to get to know better as the story evolved.

    10. Isi on said:

      Watched the movie and found it ok, and I tend to enjoy Ignatius s column, so I gave it a try Have to say i was a bit disappointed the liberal, Bush loathing politics that I agree with are just put on too thick, and the book can never quite decide whether it wants to be a page turner or a liberal manifesto on US politics in the Middle East I also found it questionable in an overtly political novel to lionize the fictional head of the Jordanian intelligence service as a suave, non violent super sp [...]

      The title of this book refers to a corpse that is dressed and made to appear to be an imaginary CIA officer with all the background paperwork to support that fiction This corpse is depositied in a foreign country to sell the fiction to terrorist organization that this CIA officer hs penetrated their organization A trojan horse scenario.Roger Ferris is a CIA soldier who creates this plot to try to penetrate Suleiman s organization The problem is no one knows Suleiman Roger works with George Smile [...]

    12. Dave on said:

      The movie was pretty good one of the best spy films I ve seen lately The book was better in some ways and worse in others for me Ignatius definitely knows his stuff, and you have no trouble visualizing the places he s talking about he clearly knows them well Likewise, he seems to have a decent hold on the modern business of espionag e All that stuff is good, but the love story in the book is just not compelling for me the girl, Alice, is a little too plainly allegorical for the just show the Ara [...]

    13. Dick Gullickson on said:

      You can tell that David Ignatius is an editorial writer for the Washington Post by his skillful weaving of international events and terrorist threats into his very plausible and fast moving stories This excellent account of CIA counter terrorist operations against Al Qaeda in Jordan has the ring of truth from a man who knows Roger Ferris is an Arabic speaking new CIA operative and Iraq veteran He learns that the Jordanian intelligence service understands counter terrorism measures in the Middle [...]

      I enjoy reading David Ignatius columns for the Washington Post, so when I spotted this in a used book store last summer in Maine thought it was worth checking out Set in 2007, it involves a CIA officer, wounded in Iraq and serving in Jordan, who comes up with a way to lure out an Al Qaida mastermind who is responsible for several car bombings in Europe Along the way he has marital and romance complications, and seriously doubts some of what he is doing It was exciting and I enjoyed some of the p [...]

    15. Shar on said:

      i started this expecting it to be overwrought with jargon and terminology that would render it impossible to follow if you re not 1000% well versed in every detail of current events luckily that wasn t the case and i found it very easy to follow, mostly thanks to it being very well paced however i found a lot of the characterizations to be pretty shallow and i was not as invested in the characters or their relationships as i may have been had that been different, so the lack of believability in [...]

      I had read another of this author s books The Increment which was excellent So, I had great hopes for this onebut in the end it s politics got in the way for me I enjoy this genre most when the authors stick to developing plot, characters, and give insight to culture and tradecraft When I sense an agenda at play, they ve lost me This is one of the reasons I tend not to be interested in the likes of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor Also, I had seen the movie already and couldn t get Leo Decaprio and Rus [...]

    17. Dianeparente62gmail.com on said:

      When it comes to spy novels, David Ignatius is one of the best His knowledge of his subject makes his stories ring true, including this one involving an attempt to draw out an Al Khaida mastermind who is wreaking havoc As with most Ignatius novels, this one has unexpected twists and turns leaving a reader fully satisfied at journey s end.This really deserves a 3 1 2 star rating, but have not mastered the 1 2 star designation.

    18. Alan Brehm on said:

      I saw the recent movie, and in comparison, the story in the book works much better I like the way Ignatius spins the web of his spy novels, with generous helpings of the background knowledge of the Middle East from his time as a correspondent there, along with interesting plot twists Even though I saw the movie, the story in the book is different enough that the development was surprising at times I thoroughly enjoyed it

    19. John Treanor on said:

      Excellent book Ignatius really knows his stuff Paints the CIA in a seemingly realistic light, as a bureaucratic nightmare filled with careerist losers, much closer to how it s depicted in the other book that I m currently reading A Legacy of Ashes, The History of the CIA I ve seen the movie twice, and enjoyed it, but the book was better of course.

    20. Tawseef Khan on said:

      This isn t your usual run of the mill spy novel where the noble American hero conquers all and the incompetent and lazy Arabs simply roll over and die I found this book to be an intelligent deviation from the usual stereotypes A refreshing read.

      An intricately woven scheme to deceive a deadly terrorist and lure him to come out in the open But who is actually being outwitted Who is running who Is tech intelligence greater than human espionage David Ignatius strikes another home run with this one

    22. Pete on said:

      This is a interesting enough novel but the plot is a bit too predictable at times I haven t yet read The Man Who Never Was but I suspect the non fiction account of Operation Mincemeat has this novel beat.

    23. Kaisu on said:

      Ein Buch, das nicht mit gro er Action, sondern eher mit unterschwelliger Spannung und Kriegf hrung daherkommt.

    24. Julie on said:

      Yay An Ignatius book with a happy ending I thought this one was terrific Great plot Thought I had guessed what was going to happen, only to be surprised by the turn of events.

    25. Patrick on said:

      Destined to be a spy novel classic You should also read Ignatius Bloodmoney.

    26. Brian on said:

      Not sure why authors always feel the need to include lewd material It never adds anything to the book If not for that it would have gotten 4 stars.

    27. Alex on said:

      Excellent book Liked it as much as movie even that movie doesn t correspond 100% to the book Recommend to everyone who likes spy thrillers and especially Middle East.

    28. Jorge on said:

      I have mixed feelings on this one Inasmuch as I liked the movie, I was interested in the novel in order to have a deeper understanding of the characters and further details on the story but alas, this is one of those few exceptions where the movie is better than the book This paragraph contains a little bit of spoilers The novel has a promising and much elaborated plot than the one in the movie obviously but unfortunately ends up as a kind of corny story where all the geopolitical spy stuff bec [...]

    29. Jon McClintock on said:

      More lies than one can count I enjoyed this, and I rate Ignatius as one of the best in his genre But the characters in this particular work were a bit off, almost as much as their dialogue Ferris declining marriage was oddly interjected, and then as off true as his unlikely romance with an aid worker Head over heels loss of common sense ensues Seriously, a trusted and effective agent of some merit involved in such cataclysmic relationships At what point did he leave his senses The plot is wonder [...]
