The Negotiator Reviews

  • Jose Puttanani

    Awesome is the word for this book. This is a book from a person with high IQ, likely to be over 120. Here are my reasons: (1)The story unfolds within a period of one year with a large number of charecters playing their role. Frederick Forsyth has shown an unparelleled skill in crafting their roles carefully and the timing for bringing them into the story. (2) His understanding of US, Europe and Middle East is so great that places and cultures fit very well into the story line. (3) The story is n [...]

    Read it for Quinn the main protagonist. This novel is spine chilling with twists and turns, that will make you lose your way deep inside the novel. When you come out of it, you ll feel like the one who built the maze. Hats off to "the master story teller".

    A 1998 Forsyth thriller has the US and Russia worried about the supply and cost of oil which is pushing $20 a barrel. The US President and Russia’s Gorbachev are about to sign a disarmament treaty that has Military hardliners on both sides angry at loss of funds and material. A US oil Barron who talks to God and gets personal responses has gathered a group of oil men and industrialists, all who stand to loose big money if the treaty goes through, in a plot to get the US President out of office [...]

    30dediferencia/2016/07/31Leer un libro de Frederick Forsyth es enfrentarte a una lectura con acción, con muchísimo ritmo, con unos personajes algo estereotipados, sin demasiada profundidad, pero ¿buscamos eso o entretenimiento sin más?Una historia en la que se mezclan personajes reales (Margaret Thatcher o Mijail Gorbachov), supongo que con la idea de hacer más creíble la historia, con un presidente de Estados Unidos ficticio y que trata temas muy actuales en la época en la que fue escrit [...]

    Just finished reading "The Negotiator" by Frederick Forsyth, an international espionage thriller involving more than a dozen countries and a plot that keeps you riveted to the book. Brilliant.

  • Benjamin Thomas

    I pulled this one from my book store because I was looking for a Cold War era thriller and have not yet read much from Mr Forsyth. I understand that he does an enormous amount of research for his books and that certainly showed here. This was a well-though out novel and well-structured even though it suffers from amazingly bad publishing timing. It was written in the late 1980s and the traditional Cold War relationship between the US and USSR continues throughout the novel. Of course the author [...]

  • Jim Puskas

    Quinn is much more than a negotiator: he's also a highly trained and experienced commando, typical of Forsyth's central characters. Of course, in a Forsyth novel things are never quite what they seem; we're never quite sure who can be trusted and who the traitors are. As usual, Forsyth introduces a large cast of characters, whose lives intersect in complex ways.One minor quibble: Forsyth's research, usually impeccable, is a bit suspect in his depiction of winter in the hill country of Vermont as [...]

  • Stefan

    The first two chapters of The Negotiator were very slow and uninteresting and I feared that this would be a tedious read. Fortunately, the pace began to pick up and I became immersed in the story. The plot contains several sub-plots (all of which are satisfactorily wrapped up in the conclusion), a number of interesting characters (notably the protagonist, Quinn), a number of neat settings (Vermont, Washington D.C Corsica, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Russia, Texas, and others, all of which [...]

    Saya mulai menyukai pengarang ini, segala detail yang terkait dengan hubungan, intrik, maupun konspirasi internasional, teknik negosiasi, teknik spionase dijelaskan oleh Forsyth di buku ini. Beberapa orang menganggap novel-novel yang dibuatnya merupakan "investigative journalism in fictional guise", mengambil hal-hal yang nyata terjadi, pernah terjadi, atau bisa saja terjadi yang diblurkan dengan cerita fiksi dan gabungan antara karakter nyata dan fiksi.Sebuah novel yang sangat informatif dari m [...]

  • Umang Chhawchharia

    The book was excellent, a typical Frederick Forsyth masterpiece. It gave me new insights into the oil scenario of the world, the vanity and selfishness of American companies in and about kidnapping in high profile cases Also how the inner functions of the American and British bodies like the COBRA workIn all an awesome book, a fun read, and recommended to all ep reading :)

  • Kanna

    Superb. awesome. what else can I say. What a suspence. what a narration At the beginning it looks like a boring novel but after some 20 pages the momentum gains and after that, whenever I found some free time available, I read it.

  • Rajan

    Very intelligent book. Highly enjoyable.

  • Chetan

    Clear 5 for Frederick Forsyth I like his books, the reason being he writes fiction.The way he moves you along with the story is wonderful.

  • Marcy Speer

    I did not expect to enjoy this tightly woven novel but I could hardly wait to turn the page.

  • Robbie

    Haven't read a bad Forsyth book yet. You'll love this one!

  • Warren

    Frequently wooden, occasionally terrible, prose; rather too much tell-not-show; an excess of cardboard characters; a big fat cliche involving a pretty FBI agent who wins the hero's heart; the road map of Europe described in excessive detail this book is full of faults.BUT! It's a cracking story! The pace, slow at first, builds to a fabulous crescendo. Forsyth's dialogue is crisp and on point, the way people actually talk. The twists keep you turning the pages until way past your bedtime. The res [...]

  • Jitse

    3.5 stars. Decent Cold War intelligence novel: a good easy read, but the ending missed a climax and didn't tie all the different story lines together as much, while they were carefully built-up. Characters were a bit stereotypical, but not in an annoying way. Good novel to take your mind off of things in the holidays

  • Diane Anderson

    This book took a little while for me to get into it.I almost gave up! But it's Frederick Forsyth!! so I persevered and was very happy I did. Very interesting story with some twists and a clever plot.

  • David

    Too long. So many cinematic twists

  • Víctor Arturo Mercado Fernández

    Una novela llena de acción e intriga con giros bruscos y resultados inesperados que mantienen al lector al borde de la silla desde el principio. Lo usual del autor.

  • Lis

    Un bel thriller: non ai livelli di Quarto protocollo o de Il giorno dello sciacallo dello stesso autore ma resta comunque un romanzo scorrevole e godibile.

  • Pawan Chahar

    Just the kind of book I wanted to read during my laid back holidays.

  • John Uzzi

    Very engaging. I did figure it out but it moved right along

  • Hemant Joshi

    Love the way how Frederick Forsyth details the story through the middle and keeps the grip till almost the end of the book.

  • Marfa Umi

    Too much typos but it was okay, still enjoy it

  • Steven S

    From Publishers Weekly The reader almost despairs of a story getting under way in Forsyth's latest: the situation takes so long to set up, and is mired in such wearisome detail. Finally, after it has been made clear that both a renegade Soviet military group and a fanatical Texan oil baron plan to take over an oil-rich Middle Eastern state for their different twisted reasons, the action begins. The son of the American president (who is about to sign a major arms agreement with Gorbachev himself) [...]
