So begins the game, almost two hundred years on people are still trying to collect all the pieces when Catherine Velis, a computer expert, is sent to Algeria to create a program for the newlyn formed OPEC and becomes enmeshed in the game.
I first read this book in my early twenties, then I reread it, reread it and reread it again. I loved it! I wasn’t alone, back in the early 90’s this was a ‘cult bestseller’, one of few books on the market then to combine the thriller genre with history and spirituality. So when I saw that it had been re-released for Kindle I grabbed a copy quicker than you can say ‘one-click’!
I was worried, would it live up to my high expectations? I could really only remember snatches of it – that it was to do with chess and the Fibonacci theory was in it and that I’d liked the main character. Thankfully it did not disappoint! Reading it again I remembered that it wasn’t just the main character I’d liked but pretty much all of them. There are a host of strong, intelligent women in this book and they are ably supported by interesting male characters.Read more ›
