The Director by David Ignatius

Into the Wild

The Director Read Online Free - Graham Weber has been the director of the CIA for less than a week when a Swiss kid in a dirty T-shirt walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and he has a list of agents' names to prove it. This is the moment a CIA director most dreads. Like the new world of cyber-espionage from which it's drawn, The Director is a maze of double dealing, about a world where everything is written in zeroes and ones—and nothing can be trusted.

”A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys...

"[She] went shopping at the Whole Foods Maket on Leesburg Pike in Tyson's Corner. She had run out of skim milk, Greek yogurt, breakfast cereal and fruit, which were the things she most liked to eat." Once I got past the tiny thrill of, hey, I've been by that Whole Foods, and I also enjoy fruit, th...

He starts to conduct an investigation quietly and entrusting a handful of people to help him. Then there is...

What a fun spy novel! Just a little foreshadowing, and a whole lot of misdirection, with characters you want to believe, but you're not sure you should! I always love a book with somewhat sketchy "narrators". If you remember the great "Jack Ryan" novels (before the deluge of movie adaptations), t...

This is my first read as part of my "I Want Michiko's Job" challenge, where I read every book Kakutani reviews. I did not enjoy this book on several levels. At the outset I was intrigued by the relevant topic of the NSA, Wikileaks and cyber hacking, but as the plot moved forward, things began to...

Удивително скучна книга. Уж трябваше да е трилър с елементи на хакерщина, а всъщност е толкова добро приспивно четиво, че трябва да се продава със зелена рецепта вместо диазепам. И да има задължително предупреждение, че след четенето му трябва да се въздържате от шофиране и опериране с тежки маши...

I respect Ignatius for his writing and his thinking. I've enjoyed listening to him on various newsmaker talk shows and I subscribe to the WashPo. Having said that, I think this effort is subpar for him. The good guys - mainly, Weber, the protag, and his ally, Weiss, weren't believable. They were...

One of the best (if not the best) espionage books I have ever read. It is an intriguing look at the cyber world and how we are all affected by it. It is very "Good Read". One of the best things for me, is that I won it from Goodreads, so I got an excellent book for free

Προτερήματα: - Έχει πολλούς διαλόγους! Αυτό είναι καλό για έναν αναγνώστη που ναι μεν του αρέσουν τα αστυνομικά μυθιστορήματα, αλλά δεν μπορεί να διαβάζει μεγάλα σε έκταση κι όγκο κείμενα, που μπουκώνουν τις σελίδες με περιγραφικές και αφηγηματικές παραγράφους που αποτυπώνουν καταστάσεις που -ίσως...

Wow! That was a really fun ride. A great big thank you to the Goodreads First Reads program and the publisher for a free look-see. Imagine, if you will, that the CIA has a new chief, and he's a good guy who wants to do the right thing. How much chaos might this create? I am, of course, not a fan of...
