  1. I won a copy of this from Goodreads First Reads, and was quite excited, as I never win anything Then I received my copy of Operation Napoleon, a glossy soft cover with sharp cover art, and flipped it over and saw the dreaded kiss of death on the back cover it was compared to Clive Cussler Noooo However, there was still some hope, as it said it was in the vein of Clive Cussler and Alistair MacLean And since, unlike Cussler, Alistair MacLean is an excellent writer even if he only wrote m I won a copy of this from Goodreads First Reads, and was quite excited, as I never win anything Then I received my copy of Operation Napoleon, a glossy soft cover with sharp cover art, and flipped it over and saw the dreaded kiss of death on the back cover it was compared to Clive Cussler Noooo However, there was still some hope, as it said it was in the vein of Clive Cussler and Alistair MacLean And since, unlike Cussler, Alistair MacLean is an excellent writer even if he only wrote military genre fiction , I decided to ignore the comparisons and judge it on its own merit.I enjoyed it a great deal It had an interesting plot, hinting at long lost WWII secrets buried in a German plane wreck on an Icelandic iceberg, while keeping the current day action moving with the protagonist being hunted by those wanting to keep ...

  2. I felt a great surge of relief when I read that this book was actually written a decade or so ago and was translated because of the popularity of Arnaldur Indri ason s Inspector Erlendur series, of which I m a devoted fan If so, how much he has improved as writer since this turkey was produced Operation Napoleon is a fever dream of anti American Icelanders encountering a posse of totally dethpicable comic opera American villains as the latter try to secure and remove from an Icelandic glaci I felt a great surge of relief when I read that this book was actually written a decade or so ago and was translated because of the popularity of Arnaldur Indri ason s Inspe...

  4. First, a small alert Indridason fans should know that this is not the latest Erlendur tale, but a translation of a book originally published in 1999 judging from the copyright page Spare yourself that bit of disappointment If anything, Operation Napoleon is evidence of how Indridason has matured as a writer it s a serviceable thriller with an improbably plucky heroine and an evenimprobable plot, centered on a World War II conspiracy, a German plane buried in a glacier, and the machin First, a small alert Indridason fans should know that this is not the latest Erlendur tale, but a translation of a book originally published in 1999 judging from the copyright page Spare yourself that bit of disappointment If anything, Operation Napoleon is evidence of how Indridason has matured as a writer it s a serviceable thriller with an improbably plucky heroine and an evenimprobable plot, centered on a World War II conspiracy, a German plane buried in a glacier, and the machinations of villainous Americans in noble little Iceland At that level it s almost anti American propaganda Unhappily, in the wake of our war on terror and our apparent acceptance of torture, targeted assassination and extra judicial imprisonment, Indridason s cartoon Special Ops villains are now complete...

  6.

  7. Operation Napoleon reads like a fast paced adventure movie script in the style of a Clive Cussler book. That is, just how much can be accomplished in 24 hours or so There is too much going on, too many characters, too many back stories, too many possible explanations for the plane, and too much flitting back and forth in time Even allowing for the usual suspension of disbelief that is required for thrillers, this one strains credibility at many turns, particularly with the ending The plot i Operation Napoleon reads like a fast paced adve...

  10. I love this author and wish I could read Icelandic so I could read them before they are translated It takes years to get one of his books because of the speed of the translation My husband discovered this author before our trip to visit my parents in Iceland a few years back They were serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Selfoss Iceland and we took our two oldest with us to visit them.We read Jar City and Secrets of the Grave before going and it gave you a I love this author and wish I could read Icelandic so I could read them before they are translated It takes years to get one of his books because of the speed of the translation My husband discovered this author before our trip to visit my parents in Iceland a few years back They were serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Selfoss Iceland and we took our two oldest with us to visit them.We read Jar City and Secrets of the Grave before going and it gave you a view of Iceland that most tourists are not going to see, including us We st...
