Read Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ì Steve Berry The Columbus Affair Free download ↠ 5 Steve Berry Ì 5 Read A family’s secret a ruthless fanatic and a covert arm of the American government all are linked by a single puzzling possibility  What if everything we know about the discovery of America was a lie What if that lie was designed to hide the secret of why Columbus sailed in 1492 And what if that 500 year old secret could violently reshape the modern political world   Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist Tom Sagan has written hard hitting articles from hot spots around the world But when one of his stories from the Middle East is exp. I like historic fiction and thrillers so Steve Berry s The Columbus Affair Ballantine Books 2012 seemed perfect Not only did it cover a segment of history I ve spent virtually no time at all thinking much less reading about I m always looking for new authors I read 1 3 books a week and Berry has thirteen out Thirteen That would get me through over a month if Columbus Affair worked outThis is the story of a damaged Pulitzer Prize winning journalist moments from commiting suicide when he gets the chance to end his life on a high note Save his estranged daughter from unspeakable horror This would give meaning to what had become a worthless existence and he agrees to postpone ending his life long enough to rescue his child From that moment he enters a world of religious zealots long buried historic events surrounding Christopher Columbus international criminals CIA operatives and a twisted plot that it would take an award winning investigator like himself to unravelThis is a promising start but not without its literary problems For example the author provides much backstory to share the mysteries surrounding Christopher Columbus It s interesting in its own right but knocks the heck out of the plot s momentum Every time the story gets moving it falls into a backstory black hole like a literary stutter As if this weren t enough the pace is also hobbled by the constant scene shifts They are uick a couple of pages but each time I must re orient myself before I can enjoy that lovely thriller feeling of being enveloped in another worldHaving said that the writer is a good storyteller The characters are nicely constructed and the plot is complex enough to keep the cleverest reader involved And even by the diverse paradigm of the genre this one is unusual Where it abides by the conscripts of a thriller main character working ever frantically to stop something dramatic from happening the heroes are not the typical thriller good guys bigger than life damaged but dominant For the first half the book it s hard to find a good guy Each main character has so many flaws in both morals and motivation its hard to root for them Zacharias is charismatic and amoral Alle has let hate for her father corrupt her soul And Ben WYSIWYG a violent strong man with core beliefs he s lived by his entire life Him readers can respect if not likeOverall Berry is a solid writer with a well researched plot I think many people will love this book as much for the fascinating historic details about Columbus as the tightly woven character driven plot Just make sure you pay attention

Five stars Absolutely This book was amazing and without a doubt one of the best books I ve read in a very long time I have never read a book by Steve Berry prior to this one and I am thrilled I won this one through the GoodReads First Reads giveaways I will definitely be purchasing books by Mr BerryI do not understand the criticisms of this book that other reviews have mentioned I had absolutely no problem with the momentum of the plot As far as I was concerned every character every tale every sentence was completely critical to the story I fell in love with some of the characters even the villainous characters and I loved the complexity that Mr Berry built in to each one Tom Sagan a disgraced former Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter who lost his family and his career Alle Sagan Becket who felt betrayed and abandoned by her disgraced father and who seeking acceptance and validity fell victim to an insane terrorist Bene Rowe a man seeking to clarify his own identity while struggling with who his ancestors were and the man he currently is and Zachariah Simon the insane terrorist who will betray everyone and stop at nothing to incite a war to save his people The story is fantastic and is woven so intricately that I could barely bring myself to ever put the book downI adored the writing style I loved how the story was continually shifting character perspective It keeps the story from becoming stale and created a deeper understanding of the story as a whole It was not a tale of Tom Sagan or Alle Becket or Bene Rowe or Zachariah Simon it was a tale of all of these characters on different uests to different ends through the same treasure I found it reminiscent of the character shifts in William Faulkner s As I Lay Dying I also loved Mr Berry s use of choppy shifting sentences The choppy sentences such asI didn t know if I couldIf I shouldMaybeI would have to trySome dayI made those up they aren t in the story but that style is was beautifully included in the context of the book It broke up the fluid writing of the rest of the book and reflected the chaos of a moment or a thought process and it was brilliantly usedI have no complaints with this book It is definitely a new favorite of mine and if Mr Berry s other books are as well written as this one I may have found a new author to add to my list of favorites
