I was travelling on a perfect copy of a Canadian diplomatic book which not only explained my seat in First Class but allowed me to avoid any questions from US Immigration. They processed me without delay, I retrieved my luggage and stepped out into the pouring rain. I was home, but I found less comfort in it than I had anticipated.

I do not touch the thriller genre. The craziness wrought by Dan Brown really destroyed it for me. I do not know how I came to be reading I Am Pilgrim; probably it was one of the Kindle Daily Deals. From the outset the writing captivated me. I once read that we are not captivated by a book's subject matter; we are captivated by the way it is written. Terry Hayes is a masterful writer. Every word, every sentence, every paragraph exquisitely crafted. He could have been writing about ANYTHING and I would have been captivated. The story is complex and nuanced, shifting from first person to third, present to flashback; the plot is dangerously complex, but Hayes manages to pull all of the threads together into a beautifully woven, textured fabric (when was the last time you heard anyone describe a thriller like THAT). Some have criticized Hayes for this, no doubt longing for the point A-to-B plot, annoying sentence structure and over-the-top special effects that populate Dan Brown's novels and made reading them so tedious. Hayes's characters are well-defined and dimensional; even the antagonist, the Saracen, was so finely crafted that I found myself sympathizing, empathizing and hoping that he would realize his revenge. In other words, Hayes creates characters the reader can care about even if they are doing evil, hateful things. Far from being distracting (some readers and reviewers here clearly have short attention spans and a limited capacity for abstract thinking) the flashbacks and digressions greatly enriched the journey -- some of them would provide ample material for novels of their own!! I am looking forward to Hayes's next novel (do I really have to wait until 2018???) and, in the meantime, I heartily recommend this read. Even if you do not like the subject matter, even if you do not like the genre, you will be captivated by craftsmanship of a master wordsmith.

A flavor of noir-detective (but not too "hard boiled") at the beginning of novel, combined with secret agent thriller as main ingredient. Far better than many of the novels in these genres--more depth in character development and plot, greater accuracy and detail in depictions of geography, culture, government and covert operations, etc. The two adversaries ("Saracen" and "Pilgrim") are equally brilliant and dangerous; even the secondary characters are well developed, i.e., "Ben" of the NYPD. "I am Pilgrim" by Terry Hayes involves an intelligent, complex plot that transports the reader from various locations, including the U.S., Middle East, Europe and Russia. Most spy thrillers skate you through action and more action (like the "Jason Bourne" series), often using a worn-out template for plot and character development. If you want to take a deep dive into a unique and brilliant spy thriller, I highly recommend that you read this novel. Also, check out the author's bio--it made me realize why he is a such a fine writer.

[Feb. 2018--P.S.: Author James Patterson's book, "Instinct" (formerly "Murder Games"), will be the basis for a new TV series, "Instinct", on CBS this March. Patterson's book was originally published in 2017, Hayes' in 2013. The premise is virtually identical: An author and university professor comes out of retirement as a CIA operative when a NYPD detective asks for his help--the serial killer is using the professor's book as a tutorial. This makes me wonder about the originality of Patterson's novel, since it was published 4 years past Hayes' novel. In any case, Hayes is a MUCH better writer, engaging one in a complex globe-trekking thriller. If you want to choose between the two books, pick "I am Pilgrim". Brilliant!]

I cannot stop telling everyone I know that THIS is the book that they MUST read this summer. Normally I avoid spy-thrillers; in my past experience they tend to be formulaic and predictable with mediocre writing. Terry Hayes' "I Am Pilgrim" totally blew up those misconceptions. I won't bother with a detailed summary (the book jacket does an excellent job of recapping), but basically the book follows the path of a retired super spy officer who finds himself being pulled back into the intelligence game. Trust me, you are not going to run into any cliches here; what you'll find is a well executed story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

While on the longer side, once you are in, you will FLY through this novel. Hayes does an excellent job of maintaining and building momentum, while keeping his pacing consistent and even. What I enjoyed most is that Hayes writes for the smart reader - the type of person who doesn't want everything explained but enjoys well-thought out details. With each chapter, you almost feel like part of the story, tagging along on Pilgrim's coattails as he races around the world.

Oh, and the characters! Pilgrim is by far one of the best protagonists I've encountered - clever, witty, self-deprecating, but all in a way that makes you wish you could go grab a drink together.

There is so much that I enjoyed about this novel but don't want to give away.... Needless to say, friends- please go and pick up a copy ASAP so we can discuss.
