    Description

    The Afghan, by Frederick Forsyth, is a thought-provoking thriller on modern terrorism. In this story, the MI6, the CIA, and ISI come together to investigate the cryptic al-Isra, a code name for an intended terrorist attack.

    Summary of the Book

    The British and American Intelligence Services find an obscure document concerning a planned terrorist outbreak. The al-Isra, being a catchphrase, stimulates the intelligence agencies to probe further. Anxious to know more, the agencies rush to dig up data from diverse sources. They even send a spy to the closest terror networks so that they can simply discover a hint to al-Isra, but all these plans go futile. And although al-Qaeda is already done with their plan of attack, the Intelligence still has no clue about it. What will be their next plans? Where and when is the al-Qaeda planning to attack? Will the intelligence agencies be successful in stopping them? Frederick Forsyth’s work is a page-turner with extraordinary detail and compulsive spectacle. The Afghan is regarded as a sequel to his book, The Fist of God, another suspense novel.

    Masterpiece

    The Afghan is a literary masterpiece. Frederick Forsyth incorporates historical facts in a action packed, fast paced plot with such astuteness that one couldn't possibly separate the fact from fiction as easily as one would like... Forsyth adds another blockbuster novel to his legacy..
    Note- Historical fiction fans get it ASAP!!

    A PEEP INSIDE THE WORLD OF COVERT OPERATIONS

    This is one of the best books of Forsyth and is a thrilling read. If like his book 'The Fist of God' you are bound to love this one.

    Even though this is fiction Forsyth must have spent a lot of time on research because along with the story he provides us with real life facts about clandestine operations and espionage. This is a must have for every Forsyth fan.

    Good but not great

    1) Planting an agent in Al-Qaida was a greatly intriguing concept an really fuels your urge to read on.
    2) The author gives a brief biography of the main characters from page 91 to 179 which can get a bit boring and you might as well skip them.
    3) Does not have much of a CLIMAX and the plot is not very strong nor there is much happening in it.
    4) But overall it may be worth reading.

    Damp Squib

    Dont waste your time guys...the plot is good but the execution trails off into oblivion. the author loses track of the characters midway...too many to handle and simply drowns in the end. If you are a first time reader, you may feel excited but simply doesnt work for me! 350 down the drain!!

    Nothing exceptional..

    The book was good when compared to his latest novel The Cobra, where Forsyth sometimes missed the ploy. The book is a good time pass and the story is also good keeping the reader instrested.. Its not a book unlike his earlier stories which is really thrilling, but overall the book has good plot and will keep you interested.
