    One thought on “The Fourth Protocol

    1. Igor Ljubuncic on said:

      One of the best spy books around.Two years after I jotted this one sentence, I should elaborate more.The book can also be called: how to assemble a nuclear weapon in 13 easy steps. Combine that with some solid, classic 80s Cold War era spy tactics and half a dozen sub-plots converging toward a decidedly gray-day industrial-era English brick house standoff, and you get yourself an excellent thriller. The best part is, it's visual. You are reading this book and you see it like a film unfolding bef [...]

      Frederick Forsyth is one of my all time favorite novelists and my favorite of all "spy novelists". The Fourth Protocol is my favorite spy novel of all time. It definitely falls into the "Commando Spy" category but is far better written than most.I love spy novels of most types and the Commando spy novels (of which I refer to the 007 novels as) are particular favorites of mine but I also like the more behind the curtains novels that LeCarre writes. This book of Forsyth's is a fantastic cross bree [...]

      Frederick Forsyth is a writer who did write some classics when it comes to the thriller genre,The Odessa File about Nazi's post WWII, Dogs of war about the post colonial attitudes of big cooperations about former colonies, the day of the Jackal about the assassination of the French President. And all books have a very precise build up with a lot of details how certain things can be done, mostly illegal stuff, and then the writer still knows how to surprise you in the end.The Fourth Protocol is a [...]

      This is my first British-style spy thriller, and I have to say it stacks up pretty darned good next to the American equivalent. There are no Mary Sue characters, no great intuitive leaps of logic, no silly foolishness from the Bad Guys, and only a smidgeon of authorial politics coming into it. However, it does make me sad to see that every author of this sort of stuff that I've come across is Right Wing to some extent or another. I wonder what a Left Wing spy thriller would look like, and I wond [...]

      The Fourth Protocol was my third Frederick Forsyth read, and whilst it is my favourite of the three, my feelings are much the same as my feelings towards the other two of his books I have read. Of course, I’ll be reading more. I brought a collection that contained twelve books, and I’m not one to ignore the books on my shelf. However, I won’t be rushing into any of them. I fear my feelings towards all of his books will be about the same, and such a thing disappoints me, as I want to enjoy [...]

    6. Jim Puskas on said:

      This is Forsythe's most successful book about the Cold War. His research into the inner workings of the Soviet goverment was so astonishingly detailed and accurate that he came under the attention of the CIA! This book included several of the most intriguing and fully developed characters that Forsythe ever created. A terrific read which was regrettably made into a movie that managed to leave out all of the romance and subtlety of the book and dull the edges of the story. Forget about the film, [...]

    7. Marc Maitland on said:

      Since I had seen the film countless times, I read the book with eager anticipation. The book is a FAR more finely-woven plot than could ever be accommodated within the space of a 90-minute film, and therefore FAR more satisfying. The wealth of detail offered by Mr. Forsyth is an educational experience, whether the sections and sub-sections of the secret services, or the S.A.S. Regiment, but best of all the pin-prick analysis of the 1980s' Labour Party is wonderful to behold. The involvement of t [...]

    8. Anand on said:

      Trust a master story teller to write an epic! I can't even begin to imagine the kind of research required for writing a novel like this. Immensely eventful. gripping and a complete page turner. This kind of a story and plot demands extreme craft over the topics like politics, international relations, covert operations and government administration. Something as simple as how to make a bomb stretches for 4-5 pages. May be called overtly descriptive, but somehow fits into this novel's style and ge [...]

    9. Gina on said:

      Simply fantastic - I had been recommended this book and finally got round to reading it and I wished I hadn't waited that long (Sorry Dan!). Frederick Forsyth has such a great style of writing with such attention to detail that you can visualise the scenes in your head and are almost there in the room with the characters. Thoroughly enjoyable!

    10. Ben B on said:

      I have probably read this book cover-to-cover a dozen times, and have read selected chapters many more. The characters are well drawn, the story is well told, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. One of the most fun spy novels of all time.

    11. Rajan on said:

      The fourth protocol is about nuclear weapons. Russians try to breach it and what follows is this tale. Very interesting read. his research is thorough as always. Must read.

    12. Shom Biswas on said:

      My favourite writer within the broad category of thrillers, one I literally grew up reading, is Frederick Forsyth. Forsyth is different from the standardfare thriller writer in that he takes a long time in patiently building up the plot. If you want a thrill-a-minute ride, Forsyth is not for you (I do have a recommendation for the extreme thrill-seeker, and that is Robert Crais; but Crais would be for another day). Forsyth is not necessarily a mystery writer, his two most celebrated books, Day o [...]

    13. Murray on said:

      In this completely preposterous 1980s Cold War spy thriller, the Russians try to effect the outcome of another country's elections.OK, that was a joke, sadly. However, what's not funny is Forsyth's crystal ball glance into the future, with suitcase bombs, terrorists and spies shuttling across borders to create their sleeping cells, and a very devious plan on behalf of the Russians to overthrow a foreign (in this case, UK) government. In pre-internet hacking days, the Russians in this novel devis [...]

    14. Ryan on said:

      Frederick Forsyth's first book The Day of the Jackal is one of, if not my favourite thriller.Since reading it I have been trying to capture its magic with Forsyth and other authors.The premise behind this is highly intriguing with the nuclear disarmament and far left of the Labour party being fascinating and strangely as relevant today as when it was written. (Anti Nuclear weapon marches that occur in the book occurred in London today with exactly the same sentiments.)Despite these ideas having [...]

    15. Kay Smillie on said:

      Taken me long enough, having seen most of the film adaptations of his novels, but I have finally read my first Frederick Forsyth novel and I am looking forward to reading more (having bought a set of twelve of his novels). The Fourth Protocol is a well researched story based in a slightly in the future UK (at the time it was written) and it brought back memories for me of that time (mid 80s). Excellent spy thriller.Ray Smillie

    16. Diane Anderson on said:

      Frederick Forsyth NEVER disappoints!!!I could hardly put down this book.

    17. Santosh Bhat on said:

      Good old Spy thriller with many white- knuckle sequences. Doesn't go where you expect it to, and for that I am grateful.

    18. Eddie Dalton on said:

      Great story Russian hit man spy in England trying to influence election result towards left wing administration. Triggered by Kim Philby in Moscow. Good chases and thrills as police try to catch up with him. Good read

    19. Andy Hunt on said:

      Great - bit of a Forsyth binge (well, this and Icon) This was much the better of the two, a bit far-fetched but good fun and well-paced. 4.5 really.

    20. Mr.Heneghan on said:

      Spies! Love this stuff and Love Frederick Forsyth. Eons ago, when I lived in Poland and was starved for reading material, I picked up one of his books called "Icon". Cool Cold War spy stuff. Nothing too Tom Clancy, with way too much technical information. Nope, this book is just chock-a-block withetings! No lie, but seriously, it's really great. Mostly British MI5 and MI6 versus KGB intelligence. Counterintelligence. Detective work that spans the globe. Not a lot of shoot-em-ups. Just burn throu [...]

    21. Terry Wilkes on said:

      The grand daddy of nuclear thrillers, this book has been so influential its plot has formed the basis of everything from James Bond films (Octopussy is essentially a rewrite) through to 24 and on to hundreds of ebooks from wannabe thriller kings.Forsyth's writing is less crisp here than in some of his other works (such as The Day of the Jackal or Where Eagles Dare) but still masterful.Well worth a read; there's a reason this book has been copied so much.

    22. Vadassery Rakesh on said:

      I think the book could have been a bit shorter to make it a block buster, which even otherwise it is. But if it had not carried the name Forsyth, many would have quit during the first 100 pages. But the latter part is just superb and covering the minutest detail with twists and turns. The hallmark of a master story teller is evident very much during the ending stages.

    23. Durgasankar Bussetti on said:

      Finally completed the book 3 years after buying it. A typical Forsyth style. But this is more inclined politically. A book that kept me awake to finish it off after many years.One shouldn't miss it, if u like forsyth style

    24. Mohammed on said:

      Early in this book i thought it was looking like a weak effort. The story,characters,the the realistic writing style made it in the end a taut,gripping tale by a master of International espinage.I enjoyed it mostly because it was a very believable look in the world of spooks.

    25. Hakim Ladha on said:

      One of the best books of Frederick Forsyth I have read till date.

    26. Gonçalo Almeida on said:

      Mais um grande livro do grande mestre da espionagem e intriga internacionais. Muito bom

    27. Rupesh Goenka on said:

      A descriptive well written British Spy thriller Absolutely Super Fantastic!!

    28. Said Al-Maskery on said:

      Well done! A very well thought and written novel. I enjoyed every page of it, but the ending was quick and expected.

    29. Jon on said:

      ticked all my boxes for cold war espionage fiction. an excellent read.

    30. Steve Cunningham on said:

      Came to the book via the Commodore 64 game. The first politically-based book I ever read. Game changer, no more dragons for me after this. I was in.
