こんにちは、始めてピータン食べました、Aki です。

 

今日は、「The President Is Missing」です。12月に邦訳が出るそうで、邦題は「大統領失踪」です。

 

元大統領の初小説、ということで注目を浴びていますが、James Patterson の腕によるところが非常に大きいと感じました。

圧倒的な疾走感はベストセラー作家の技術がいかんなく発揮されていると思います。

彼のプロットに、さらに元大統領の持つ知識、経験が加えられ、読み応えのある作品に仕上がっています。

 

話は、テロリストによるサイバー攻撃の脅威に立ち向かうという王道のような流れですが、ホワイトハウスの内情が少し知れたり、など楽しめて読むことだ出来ます。

Hi, it's Aki who tried century eggs for the first time in my life.

 

Today's book review is about "The President Is Missing" by Bill Clinton and James Patterson.

 

The president of US faces a threat of a cyber terrorism which would completely destroy the country.

The president tries to stop the attack and find a traitor who is supposed to be involved in this attack.

 

This is a typical page-turner book with short chapters as often seen many recent books.

 

This book is best known as the first novel of Bill Clinton, but I'd say that James Patterson is the main author of this book. 

This plot and story overall are too great for the former US president to produce; nonetheless the spices Bill Clinton added are nicely composed in this story line.

 

I enjoyed the inside story of the White House and decision making processes conducted by the US president which are made on the daily basis.

 

Bye-Cha!
