The Matarese Circle

Few books that I cannot put down but this is one of them. The scope of the book is grand and the attention to detail in surroundings and characters is nicely done.

A spy novel needs all the parts

When Ludlum actually wrote the books he was my favorite for spy stories, so I bought this remembering how I loved the book. But this book is abridged and if I had not already read the real book I would never have understood anything about the plot, much less enjoyed the book. I will not puchase another abridged Ludlum novel, it's the detail that makes the book interesting, this book was just painful to hear after reading the real book.
