The writing is beautiful good. Real stories of espionage have always fascinated me. But the protagonist in this story frustrates me beyond belief. He seems to have his own moral code which revolves around himself. I hesitate to call it self-centeredness, though I believe it to be close to that. More than anything, I got sick of all the references to "her attractive nose." Seriously? Ugh... can I quick forward past the nonsense and obtain to the heroic bits?
I had never heard of Fritz Kolbe and was astounded to learn of his value to America in WWII. This book is well written and tells a sensitive tale of this brave man's life. While much appears to be fictionalized, the author gives us a real sense of his struggles and sacrifice.
I expected you to be a man... or a woman. The 9th in the Carry On series, and the latest to be filmed in black and white, is one of the best. It finds the gang kind of biting the hand that feeds them, Pinewood. The home of James Bond was also the home of the Carry On mob, so with Peter Rogers, Gerald Thomas and Talbot Rothwell spying an opportunity to spoof 007, they did so, whilst also revelling in the possibility for some movie noir dalliances, notably The Third Man. The cast is this time headed up by Kenneth Williams, Barbara Windsor (making her Carry On debut), Bernard Cribbins and Charles Hawtrey. They are four less than stellar operatives for British Intelligence tasked with retrieving a top secret formula that has been stolen by STENCH. During their mission they are helped by Carstairs (Jim Dale), and just who or what is the mysterious organisation known as SNOG? Are they mates or in league with the evil Dr. Crow? Though dotted throughout with some written innuendo, "Spying" is still in touch with the more genial comedy that was evident in the early years - particularly the black and whites. This is amazing honest comedy, with visual exuberance and witty repartee the order of the day. Watching it now you search it holds up very well, sure it's a bit fruity and nutty, but a freshness exists here and it lets some damn fine actors loose to present their respective skills. It also looks terrific, the noir photography by Alan Hume sparkling. A prime Carry On film for those who prefer their Carry On's more knowingly jolly than the later bawdy entries. 9/10
This is a very amazing book and well worth reading even if you saw and enjoyed the Tom Hank's movie. It is various from the film in a lot of ways because I am beautiful sure that the film is based partially on this book, partially on Jim Donovan's book, and partially on Hollywood's penchant for historical dramatic license. This book is very well researched, very simple to follow and read, and with a surprising amount of humor in it. It is a book that clearly had to wait for the end of the Cold War, reunification of Germany, and half a century to pass before most of the secrets surrounding the Rudolf Abel and the U-2 incidents could be told. I say "most of the secrets" because even a half century on Mr. Whittell could not convince some of the surviving players to begin up about the topic at hand. One of the best aspects of the book is that the author vividly gives you the inside story of all of the sides, players, and communities involved in the story without being overly judgmental about any of the protagonists' motivations and yet he does a amazing job of elucidating those motivations. You obtain the CIA's story, the East German's story, the KGB's story, and the Soviet military's story, the stories of all three national governments involved and the stories of their respective leaders, all told from their own point of view without prejudice or bias. The reader also gets a nice portrait of post-war American and Soviet societies. If, like me, you lived through the aforementioned post-war period, the entirety of the Cold War, and remember the U-2 Incident, Francis Gary Powers, Rudolf Abel, and the spy swap it is a poignant and chilling book that will probably shake loose some of the most frightening memories of your childhood and adolescence. And it is those frightening and chilling aspects of the tale which makes Mr. Whittell's talent for finding the humor in the stories all the more amazing. Whittell does a unbelievable job of weaving so a lot of diverse and seemingly unassociated story lines into a cogent, logical, and well connected whole that goes from a million miles wide to eventually narrowing down down to a pinpoint meeting on a bridge in Berlin. I was transported back to those scary days where they created us watch the "Bert the Turtle" movie at school, hide under our desks at school to prepare for a nuclear attack, and warned us small children to watch for the bright flash of an exploding bomb. I never thought there were "commies hiding under my bed" but we all knew they were out there "...trying to destroy our free country and our method of life." If you are younger than we Boomers then you ought to read the book as a method to gain some insight as to the method your parents and grandparents can be so crazy paranoid at times because "Bridge of Spies" will transport you back to the globe in which we Boomers were small kids.
Interesting and grabs a keep on you. I was 12, when Powers was shot down over the Soviet Union. It was one of the first news story's that I followed closely. I also remembered when he was exchanged for Abel. I saw the movie, but only read about a third of the book, when I saw it.. The film left out about 90 per cent of the book. It only focused on James Donovan's Abel's lawyer, working on the release. It did even mention the cancelled summit between Eisenhower and Khrushchev, after Powers was shot down. I think the film was based on the book Mr. Donovan wrote more than this is book was the complete story. It starts with William Fisher aka Rudolf Abel, and tells how the failed spy was caught. It goes into about him and who he was associated with. How messages were sent to the Soviet Union. Then it tells Powers and Frederic Pryor complete stories. There is more to know than what was in the movie.
I saw the film of the same name in 2015, and as amazing as that film was, it left me wanting to know more about the participants. The book provides that, and much more. We learn in rich detail not only about the Russian and American spies, but the history and historical context of the U2 program, the Cold War, and political pressures felt by both Khruschev and Eisenhower, and exactly who the third person traded, Fred Pryor, was. This is a "must read" for anyone who enjoyed the movie, is a Cold Battle history buff, or has enjoyed the espionage thrillers of John LeCarre. It's that good.
I remember going outside with my parents to look at Sputnik as it speed through the night sky. I remember doing duck and cover drills in school. I remember the tension in the air all during my preteen years. This book brought back the feelings and helped me understand what was event at that time from a current e structure of the book was a small confusing at times. I felt that the writing was hasty at some points but the story did bring the period to life.
This book tells a story that is also portrayed in a movie; yet the two are quite different. The story is amazing, and it is well told in this book. There are several parallel plots developing simultaneously, and each is one of those true-to-life adventures that truly is stranger than fiction. Interesting insight into the back story of major cold battle events. Definitely worth reading.
Very interesting book. Discovered facts and theories I'd never been aware of. I was too young to remember a lot of of the particulars of this case; but, found the book very helpful in understanding more about the actual e speculations were also of major interest. Talk about Black Ops and deception at the highest levels. More fodder for conspiracy ly enjoyed the b
The story is amazing but the writing falls a small short. I appreciated learning the background to what led up to the swap but it didn't quite read like a page turner. I guess this is one book where we can now watch the film for the sensational aspect and the hollywood drama that the author just didn't quite present. The facts were solid and the history was spot on.
I don't normally review books I haven't finished, but in this case I am reviewing "Bridge of Spies" by Giles Whittell, and giving it one star. The most necessary thing an author of non-fiction must give the reader is an absolute certainty of the facts he is presenting. In this book, Whittall is wrong on dates twice in the prologue. The Kennedy/Khrushchev Paris summit was in 1961, not 1960. And the allied/German Christmas truce was in 1914, not 1916. Once I found 2 mistakes - caused by either not good editing by the publisher or lack of knowledge by the author - I'm out of there and the book is removed from my iPad.
Well written interesting history. Story not much embellished it doesn't seem. Not at all a novelized version, but straight historical writing. Interesting story. I'm just old enough to remember the incident and the spy exchange at the end. But of course the true story has a lot more depth than anything a child of the time would have picked up from the newspapers. Amazing read.
Perfect book; far superior to the film of the same name. A person can actually learn something about history by reading this book. While Donovan's book (Strangers on a Bridge) written back in the 60's had much greater detail about Able and the trial, this book is more well rounded when it comes to info on other persons involved in the prisoner exchange.
Frosty reception assured. The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is directed by Martin Ritt and adapted to screenplay by Paul Dehn and Guy Trosper from the novel of the same name written by John le Carré. It stars Richard Burton, Claire Bloom, Oskar Werner, Peter van Eyck, Sam Wanamaker, Rupert Davies and Cyril Cusack. Melody is by Sol Kaplan and cinematography by Oswald Morris. Disillusioned spy Alex Leamas (Burton) returns from Berlin and is needed to "come in from the cold" and work in a stable daily job environment. But this is just a little piece of a much bigger jigsaw… From begin to finish this is a deliberate downer of a movie, the complete flipside to the spy adventures served up in other high energy filmic quarters. Filmed in course monochrome to set the mood, picture is often depressing, overtly talky and complex in its characterisations and narrative bent. However, those things are not hindrances, for this is undeniably adult stuff, oozing with intelligence and intricacies for the mature movie fan, a clinically spun web of pawns, manipulations and distrustful men. The Cold Battle backdrop is marked as deathly cold, where the grey weather is only matched by the colourless complexion of Burton's depressed spy. As the twists rack up and the tension noose is tightened, Ritt and his cast of perfect performers are only interested in keeping it real, right up to, and including, the devastating finale. Not one to turn to when in need of a pick-me-up, or in fact a movie you wish to watch perennially, but certainly it's a piece of work that serves to remind us that intense well written and performed cinema is always available to view when the mood fits. 8/10
I started getting sms warnings 12 hours after install. The application doesn't tell you what action to take if this happens. Are my sms messages being hacked? If so what do I do about it?? READ THIS FIRST - after the developers's reply, I was given an email address to contact them if I had further questions. Obviously I did because their response, as you can see, created no sense. I asked them for clarification, but I received the same exact same reply. I asked for clarification a third time, and I just received the same nonsensical reply! They obviously don't care about their customers. My conclusion is that they must have created it look like my sms were being intercepted to promote a need for the app. Or maybe worse! Now I need to figure out how to obtain a refund. DON'T BUY IT YET!
Works as advertised thus far. It does use the "whitelist" as it says it does. It's a primary program in the fact that it blocks/monitors three (3) areas. Technically there's no use for your "free trial." Buy it, then test it (it only takes a few minutes, that's what I was explaining above!!) if it works then hold it. If it doesn't work then obtain your refund from the App's page. Easy! Thanks DEV for all your hard work!!
If you (like me) have been reading Tortall books for years and feel as though you know all the characters by heart, this book is a fun addition. It is NOT a fresh story-- rather, it's a collection of tidbits about the Tortall universe to support flesh out the globe we know so well and fill in some gaps (and maybe give a few fresh tidbits!)Included within are bits of correspondence that fit alongside stories already told by Tamora Pierce-- to go with the "spy's guide" there are some of the instructions quoted from in the Trickster books on how to be an effective spy. There are stolen letters from George and Myles' network of spies, and some bits on how their network can train fresh spies. There are biographies fleshing out information on a lot of side characters like Thayet, Buri, Sarge, and Numair. There are a couple of various timelines-- one I found very amusing was a chronology of all historical rulers, with young Thom (Aly's brother) giving colourful commentary. There's also a detailed timeline to present how all the various books and characters fit together chronologically, from Alanna to up to Kel and Aly-- so you can see when certain characters were born in relation to happenings in another book. This was really helpful in solidifying a sense of how the various series (Alanna, Wildmage, Protector, Trickster) are spaced out.Overall this was a fun small "extra" glimpse into the Tortall universe. It teased some new/different stories, filled in some blanks, and would be a amazing companion book for anyone looking to understand how all the various series fit together.
I've been a fan of the Tortall series since I first got my hands on the Song of the Lioness series at age 10, and have never stopped loving and rereading the series! This book is a delightful addition to my collection, filling in gaps that are helpful to fans and fanfic writers in particular, haha. It's DEFINITELY a supplement rather than its own novel. As always, Pierce's writing is marvelous and e only reason I had to take away a star is because of the design choices. The front cover isn't even centered? So the title is chop off by the fold on the spine, which looks very unappealing. The stylized font within is a cute idea, but too difficult for my not good eyes to read easily with dyslexia. It's huge enough in font size that I CAN still read it, it's just a struggle I've never experienced with her other books, except in the few pages of the Provost's Dog series that were similarly meant to imitate handwriting.
Re: Tortall A Spy's Guide.XXSpoilers, obviously!XXXYou have been warned!XXX Tamora Pierce mentioned that she has had the setting of Tortall in her mind since 1976, and it shows. The book is a patchwork of interesting information, humor, familiar faces, and the small tidbits of info we have come to appreciate. Isn't she (and she had support from Timothy Liebe and a couple others)amazing? Tortall and its neighbors feel as rich as the true world. I think it was in Lioness Rampant that it was mentioned that Tortall, Galla, Maren, and Tusaine were all chop from the same cloth, and it wasn't until I think Beka's books that we learned they were once all part of the same Empire which split as it fell. That's just one little aspect of the richness I've found in these books. Seriously, this is the most delightful companion novel to a beloved series I have ever the book is framed as being gleaned from papers and letters found in George's storage zone next to his office, it makes sense that the Coopers are quite the focus of it. Thom was given a role, and Alan had a clever small letter to Lord Imrah (who really needs to be a major part of a book, hopefully the third Numair novel).My only "quibble" -- and it's really not a true quibble, just proof of my obsession -- is that Alanna and George were expecting a surprise late in life baby, but the name of the baby was never revealed. It's fine... it's fine. I'm fine. *brave tears*I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever wished Tortall were a true place.
Tell me how create it stop vibrating and I will reinstall and give you 5 x☆ * I tried in your 'settings' menu and it kept vibrating. * I closed the application and it kept vibrating. The only method I could obtain the application to stop vibrating was to Uninstall it. 😠 Before i uninstalled the application it picked up over 101 FB's. (I live in a huge town and I know the cops are using them here). Yuck.. .please support me fix this minor glitch!!!!
I've now been using this application for over a year, never knew if it was working or not as I've never had an alarm go off, until today, after the alarm went off, I immediately started researching the connection, sure which it was connecting to a mobile tower. Amazing job Dev. Just donated 10 dollars.
I love this APP. Works as supposed to. Btw. What about SATELLITE MAPs?!?! Would be unbelievable to have an option to activate.. Of course my standard view also is without satellite images. But in some high-resolution locations you might be able to see the transponders!! Especially here at countryside locations where all the infrastructure still is overland.
I loved the original game, attractive shots, complicated pictures. This one is too simple, melody drives me crazy, no tips and it won't allow me move to the other few rooms until I search all objects. Each room only has a few objects to search although the pictures have a lot of interesting objects. I miss the attic and the skeleton that would move and give a clue when all objects are found.
If you're thinking (like I did) that this is a remake of the computer game, it's not. It has similarities, but it's not really the same gameplay-wise. I was kind of really disappointed, but I don't wish to be too hard on the android game because it is amazing for what it is, but not what I was expecting.
