Initially one feels Ryan is just plain ignorant and/or too lazy to have done his research; as the story progresses one realises that Ryan’s intention is actually insidious, that he is engaged in misinformation and propaganda. This book doesn’t even have the merit of being at least internally consistent and thrilling with an ingenious resolution. His prose has become more pedestrian, clichéd card-board cut-out characters plodding towards a deux ex machina dénouement. His resolution to the story would be comically quick if it didn’t show his utter contempt for his readers’ intelligence; it’s almost as if Ryan is boring himself. He has thrown out all subtlety and pretence here. The first two books were covered with a patina of liberal idealism (only world peace and harmony would ensure humanity’s future, the benefits of human diversity etc. etc.) although underneath all the English-speaking white characters were flawless and noble, full of vitality and virtue. In contrast non-whites and non-English speaking white characters were either weak, flawed or down-right duplicitous. Here he has dispensed with the need for such “politically-correct” restrictions. When a character calls for wiping out all Middle-Easterners one suspects Ryan doesn’t think they’re wrong to think so, it’s just that the optics wouldn’t play so well.
This is dog-whistling propaganda masquerading as concerned philanthropy.
