      Rebecca Vai à GuerraEsta história que nos leva até à exótica e misteriosa Cairo, tem uma pontinha de verdade:Andava Ken Follet a cuscar aqui e ali, em busca de enredo para o célebre "Buraco da Agulha", quando foi brindado com uma história paralela que envolvia um espião nazi, uma sensual dançarina do ventre, e Rebecca - a famosa obra literária de Daphne du Maurier.E foi a partir desta estranha tríade que germinou uma nova Rebecca - mais guerreira e menos romântica!Se a guerra vai à [...]

      Rebecca Comes to WarWe all know how WWII invaded literature. The theme has been used and abused inspiring all sorts of stories.Since what goes around is supposed to come around, it's not by all means shocking to find an example where the opposite works, e.g. to know about a WWII episode where literature plays some kind of roleWhile researching for the "Eye of the needle", Ken Follet found a parallel story that involved a german spy, a sexy belly dancer and the famous "Rebecca" from Daphne du Mau [...]

      What's not to love about a good WWII spy novel? It's so easy to get sucked right in. You've got Nazis: they're the bad guys. No need to develop this. They are the bad guys. They are the ultimate bad guys. They are, in fact, about as bad as guys get. Outside of Sauron's legions of Mordor, you don't really have a better example of a total absence of moral ambiguity. And really: between Joseph Goebbels and the Witch King leader of the nazgul, it's a toss-up for sheer wickedness. Most of us have a p [...]

      A Spy Novel that Reads Like a Good Alternate History Fiction(A Book Review of Ken Follett’s The Key to Rebecca)The last camel collapsed at noon.So begins Ken Follett’s intriguing World War II thriller set in 1942 Cairo, a city holding its breath. The German army is poised for a strike in Egypt, and the British seems powerless to stop it; powerless, too, to catch the master spy with the codename Sphinx who is stealing their military secrets and transmitting them to Field Marshall Rommel. Just [...]

      Follett is excellent with his character development. This book is a complete shift from Pillars of the Earth. Follett is so talented in his different writing styles. Fun things I learned from reading this book: 1) don't become a spy2) if I do become a spy, don't use my real name3) don't go back to my home town where they can track down my real identity4) it's always better to be on the good team

      A clever WWII story during a time when victory held in the balance between Axis and Allies.Rommel is ready to push east towards the Suez Canal, but he desperately needs fuel. A German undercover agent is the key to helping him acquire the necessary supplies, but a young woman stands in his way.Filled with romance, historical accuracy, and intrigue, Follett manages to write a story of when victory for the Allies was uncertain. If you're a fan of WWII thrillers, put this on your list.

      This book was very easy to put down until the last 80 pages when the action finally took place. I can handle some racy stuff in books, but there are a couple sentences I really wish I hadn't read that are in this book. The sex that is talked about is way too perverted for me. There wasn't a lot of it and I did my best to skim over it while not missing out on the plot, but I really couldn't see the point of most of it. I read another ' member's review of this book before I started it that said it [...]

      Two-thirds of the way through this book I was prepared to give it a rave review. The book has all the elements of a good action thriller: Compelling, well-drawn villain, sympathetic hero, interesting supporting characters (including one who's a bisexual, Nazi-collaborating seductress by day, night club belly dancer by night!), a decent amount of sex, and an exotic setting. I especially liked Follett's technique of shifting points of view, so that we get to see what characters who we've already b [...]

      (review in English below)Para mim foi uma desilusão (na verdade, é mais um 2,5 do que um 3).Nunca me senti envolvida na história, não gostei particularmente dos personagens nem apreciei a escrita. Lê-se bem, mas se calhar a espionagem não é para mimThis was a big let down for me (it's more like a 2.5, actually).I never felt involved in the story, I didn't particularly like the characters or the writing.It reads OK, maybe I'm just not into spy novels

    10. Ricardo Mendes

      Esta é a primeira vez que escrevo sobre este fantástico autor. Ken Follett é sem dúvida um mestre da narrativa. Neste livro, e ao contrário do Noite Sobra As Águas, a acção começa logo nas primeiras páginas e prolonga-se durante toda a história de forma rítmica deixando completamente de lado partes mortas.Esta é uma história de espiões, mas não ao estilo, por exemplo, de Daniel Silva, uma vez que decorre no ano de 1942 e é espantoso perceber como se faziam as espionagens antes d [...]

    11. Anne Pinckard

      The first few pages were fantastic. And then it just became a horrible book. Spoilers ahead. It relies heavily on stereotypes--the inscrutable Arabs, the highly sexualized "Oriental" women, the frigid, repressed British women and so on. The writing is stiff and overly expository. The character emotional development happens in spurts and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.Which really just leaves plot. The plot, over all, is the one good thing about this book. However, a few key turns happen in a [...]

      I love Cold War spy stories. I've read a lot of them, and this is one of the good ones. Having said that, I'm afraid it would be hard for me to recommend The Key to Rebecca to anyone I actually KNOW because of the insanely graphic sex scenes Follett felt the need to include. Are they well written? Well, yes they are--if you're looking for porn in novel form. Were they necessary in furthering the storyline or fleshing out the characters (no pun intended)? Certainly not to their graphic degree. I' [...]

      Κατασκοπευτικό μυθιστόρημα για να περνά η ώρα.Περίμενα περισσότερα από τον Φόλετ.Με φόντο το Κάιρο του 1940 και το μαινόμενο πόλεμο των Εγγλέζων (που κατείχαν ήδη την Αίγυπτο) και των συμμάχων με τους Ναζί και τον Ρόμελ, ο συγγραφέας αποπειράται να μας ψυχαγωγήσει.Ένας ικανός [...]

    14. Jaksen

      This is a fairly good book and I wish I'd read it years (and years) ago when I perhaps could have appreciated it more. However, I found the actual writing a little tedious, repetitious, and dull. Lots of short, noun-verb, noun-verb sentences. (Yeah, I require a little more variation.) I knew the story from seeing the movie, but I still wanted to read the book. There was also a lot of 'he sawblah blah blah,' or 'she looked atblah, blah blah.' I wanted to reach out and hit the author on the head ( [...]

      I'm willing to say I enjoyed this book, though I wouldn't be quick to recommend it to anyone. Follett seemed to be moderately researched in the World War Two Middle East, and overall the story was interesting. It was an easy read, and was sufficiently entertaining. However, there were a few problems I had with this book, which kept me from truly enjoying it. For one thing, the story was extremely predictable. Not just the overall outcome, but every plot twist and event followed a typical path. T [...]

      "A Chave para Rebecca", de Ken FollettGosto de uma leitura absorvente e frenética, e não falhou.Segunda Guerra Mundial, no Cairo, espiões alemães e o Exército Inglês que quer defender a sua posição dominante contra os invasores alemães.A história tem dois protagonistas , um é o espião alemão, Alex Wolff, o outro é o major William Vandam, que o tenta descobrir e parar. E aqui está o que gostei na história, o ter dois protagonistas em lados opostos. Não existe um protagonista e um [...]

      I thought the Key to Rebecca was a disappointment. I had heard good things of it and I think well of Ken follett. But the scenario I found surprisingly similar to Eye of the Needle, just set in Egypt. The story just did not seem to get going until the last 50 pages. It was also unnecessarily graphic at times, which almost caused me to stop reading. Skimming portions made it possible to finish. But in the end, I found that I did not really care abot the characters enough to find satisfaction in t [...]

      Thought I read it before but turns out I didn't. At least I don't remember it and I think I would. Interesting German spy in Egypt giving Rommel the good poop on British dispositions. British major on his tail and the beautiful girls involved make for a fun and slightly sexy tale. The ending was pretty shlockey but most of the book was decent. I will leave it a 3 Stars, just barely.

    19. Maria Carmo

      Another excellent book, making the reader spin through all the action and strategy that evolves side by side with passion, sensuousness and a lot of historical background! Maria Carmo,Lisbon 23 August 2016.

    20. Patricia Gulley

      An interesting story, makes me want to go look and see if I can find out the true story of why Rommel didn't take Cairo.

    21. Judy Higgins

      Sometimes you need to go back and see which "oldies" you missed. Actually, my reason for reading "The Key to Rebecca" was more pedestrian: the bookstore aisles were blocked due to some activity in the bookstore; The "F" shelf in the mystery section was the only place I could get to. And I'm glad! I bought the book, went home, and curled up in bed. The first line sucked me in: "The last camel collapsed at noon." I wish I could write like that: six words and I know that the setting is the middle e [...]

      Bought this on a cheap deal for my Kindle for holiday reading. I haven't read any of his other books, so can't compare with them, but I did find it interesting as it was about an area and time I'm not much acquainted with. Plot was quite gripping and the characters interesting.

    23. Steve Shilstone

      Egypt. World War II. Nazi spy. Thrilling chase. X-rated sex. Alfred Hitchcock could have had fun with it.

    24. DeAnna Knippling

      A solid read, but it's really starting to show some age. Not only are many of the characters stereotyped (and, even though the book is all about seeing past stereotypes, by this point, THAT is a stereotype--oh, yes, so noble), but the pacing felt off. Rip-roaring action scenes with paragraphs that stretched on and onere's even a section where the POVs shift to first person train of thought. I laughed out loud when I saw that old trickobably not what the author intended.BUT: the book forced me to [...]

      My third foray into Ken Follett and he’s yet to disappoint.Starts a bit slow what with the exposition of the central characters: Alex, the ruthless German spy sent to Cairo, Vandam (yes, really), a 40-something major in the British Staff Intelligence, Elene, a beautiful Jewish woman who’s had a string of bad luck with men, Sonja, a renowned dancer in Cairo with a strange sexual fetish (but, more importantly, an Anglophobe), and several others. But the pace steps up when Vandam gets intrigued [...]

    26. Tracy

      Never misses. Ken Follett is a master of the micro story. In the midst of a war he zooms in on a small but key aspect and puts us in the heads of his characters. He is a master story teller.

    27. Jerry B

      Prolific author's Egyptian thriller: sex, spies, and war !We certainly can't fault Ken Follett for variety in writing -- his books span many timelines and topics. But in "Key", he returns to a seeming favorite combination found in several of his nearly twenty novels -- sex, war, and spies!! Set in early WWII in Egypt, the basic story line is about a German spy, Alex Wolf, who is half European and half Arabian, and therefore blends in easily in numerous settings in Cairo during the British occupa [...]

    28. Joe Stamber

      This is my second KF book, following on from "Eye of the Needle" (which was an audio book). While Eye of the Needle was about a German spy in London in WWII and the British intelligence officer's attempts to catch him, "The Key to Rebecca" is about, er, a German spy in Cairo in WWII and a British intelligence officer's attempts to catch him. Same story, different setting? No, not at all, fortunately. Although the two novels have similar themes, KF makes the most of the different setting, with th [...]
