    2.5 Stars at best! The epitome of average. I love Forsyth, some of my favourite works are his but this will not be one of them. It feels like a political rant in places, in others a review of world events. Through all this is an unrealistic, unbelievable, even ridiculous plot which has...

    Forsyth continues to master the international spy thriller in his latest book. "The Fox" has hacked into the NSA, and US and British agents join forces to find the hacker. The story is modern without relying on excessive technical detail. The scenario is both plausible and frightening....

    Aunque la trama en principio es muy interesante, el servicio de inteligencia de EEUU ha sufrido una intromisión,"un ataque", sin embargo, no han robado nada, no han dejado nada, no hay extorsión... no han dejado ni una solo pista de quién o qué puede haber sido. Adrian Weston ex je...

    I find this boring and tough to follow. 2 of 10 stars ...

    3.5 stars, rounded up (for all of his past accomplishments in this genre.) Someone has hacked into the impenetrable computer systems of the U.S. intelligence community. Turns out, it's a 18-year Brit, working in his attic with standard equipment, who awakens to find a team of black-cla...

    The Fox is an average novel. The novel does not flow properly and it keeps referencing past events which was kinda annoying. ...

    I found this to be very realistic. It has a modern day international espionage. Very though provoking considering the state of our world affairs right now. When you thin an eight-teen -year old hacker could tap in a become a weapon and a target. A great read. I won a copy of this fr...

    Terrible book. Much like Wilbur Smith and Tom Clancy, Forsyth has entered the realm of successful thriller writers that allow publishers to ghost write books for them. This book has none of the style, or pace of of a Forsyth novel. There?s no depth to any of the characters and the pl...

    Not Such a Cunning Fox! For once, with this author, when a publisher puts extravagant claims in their blurb it's hard to argue. Frederick Forsyth has written some of the all-time thriller greats so deserves the ultimate respect. They suggest he defined the thriller genre so is he st...

    Good, but thought the ending a bit lame. ...

    We?ve been enjoying Frederick Forsyth since his debut with ?The Day of the Jackal? in 1971. Unlike other popular authors, he doesn?t pump out a full-length novel every year, but rather has published a new international thriller at roughly three-to-five year intervals ? a span...

    This adventure centres on a teen lad with Asperger's who lives in his computer attic and hacks. Ah - no it doesn't. If it did he'd have lines, right? This adventure centres on a retired agent who is called back by a Theresa May lookalike to control the young hacker Luke and point him...

    Once upon a time there was an autistic English boy that could hack Anything. He causes havoc in all the Bad places in the world and survives several attempts at assassination. He does all this within 7 months so he never gets any older. Then, because this is a fairy tale, he becomes a ...

    As a longtime fan of Forsyth, I was very interested in how he approached this tale of contemporary technological espionage without falling off the edge into tech speak and so forth. I respect his story telling skill ...The Day of the Jackal, The Odessa File, The Forth Protocol etc ... ...

    Frederick Forsyth has been one of my favorite authors for many years although he seemed to have peaked with what may have been his first book, The Day of the Jackal. The result was that I hadn't read one of his novels in years but I decided to give The Fox a shot because I knew that, m...

    Vuelve el clásico maestro del suspense. El Zorro es una novela de rabiosa actualidad que se desarrolla en nuestro propio tiempo. Un joven con Asperger tiene la capacidad y facilidad de burlar cualquier sistema de seguridad informática existente, lo que le convierte en el arma más pe...

    Worst Forsyth book ever written. The book was a horrible disappointment. The overarching plot can be at best described as genius boy waving his magic fingers to defeat all the enemies of the West using a computer. And I use the "magic" deliberately because though the book is about h...

    Actually 2.5/5 Picked this up with great expectations, having been a fan of Forsyth's novels. But was disappointed. The writing style is good enough, the flow, the language. But where is the story? (view spoiler)[You suddenly come across a hacker of all hackers and get impossible thin...

    "This is what I've been missing, I've read two Tom Clancy books recently and have been really disappointed in how the writers who have continued his franchise have handled the series. Thank goodness for Frederick Forsyth, a writer that truly understands how espionage should be writte...

    Interesting premise, solid research, and informative detail, but lacking a cohesive story to weave it together. Basically an analysis of current global politics and how the UK might cyber-attacks against geopolitical foes, but it just jumps from one incident to another without an actua...

    Forsyth is 80-years-old, and he writes a book that is one of the most relevant and current pieces of mystery and thrill that there is available. I will skip over the synopsis of the book, but long story short, there is a young hacker, Luke Jennings, who assists in finding "The Fox". ...

    Thank you FREDERICK FORSYTH for writing THE FOX. Thank you G.P. Putnam's for publishing it. The 21st century has seen the birth of a new type warfare - cyberwarfare. Mr. Forsyth has produced a book whose plot seems to be ripped from major news headlines (not "fake news!"). Among th...

    Very disappointing I have really enjoyed some of his earlier books. This one was a huge let down. No character development to the point that you couldn?t care less if the main characters were all murdered half way through the novel. ...

    This book of spycraft is told so authoritatively that it's almost possible to overlook how slight it is. The plot is preposterous, amounting to waving a magic wand repeatedly. The world's greatest hacker is discovered and he can bridge the "air gap," meaning he can hack into computer s...

    Thank you FREDERICK FORSYTH for writing THE FOX. Thank you G.P. Putnam's for publishing it. The 21st century has seen the birth of a new type warfare - cyberwarfare. Mr. Forsyth has produced a book whose plot seems to be ripped from major news headlines (not "fake news!"). Among th...

    Very disappointing I have really enjoyed some of his earlier books. This one was a huge let down. No character development to the point that you couldn?t care less if the main characters were all murdered half way through the novel. ...

    This book of spycraft is told so authoritatively that it's almost possible to overlook how slight it is. The plot is preposterous, amounting to waving a magic wand repeatedly. The world's greatest hacker is discovered and he can bridge the "air gap," meaning he can hack into computer s...

    I've always loved Forsyth's books, so I was excited to see a new one out. It was a fairly quick, enjoyable read although I found it lacked depth and complexity. Everything fitted together too well, the good guys always came out on top with minimal casualties, the bad guys were always o...

    2.5 Stars at best! The epitome of average. I love Forsyth, some of my favourite works are his but this will not be one of them. It feels like a political rant in places, in others a review of world events. Through all this is an unrealistic, unbelievable, even ridiculous plot which has...

    We?ve been enjoying Frederick Forsyth since his debut with ?The Day of the Jackal? in 1971. Unlike other popular authors, he doesn?t pump out a full-length novel every year, but rather has published a new international thriller at roughly three-to-five year intervals ? a span...

    Forsyth is 80-years-old, and he writes a book that is one of the most relevant and current pieces of mystery and thrill that there is available. I will skip over the synopsis of the book, but long story short, there is a young hacker, Luke Jennings, who assists in finding "The Fox". ...

    Thank you FREDERICK FORSYTH for writing THE FOX. Thank you G.P. Putnam's for publishing it. The 21st century has seen the birth of a new type warfare - cyberwarfare. Mr. Forsyth has produced a book whose plot seems to be ripped from major news headlines (not "fake news!"). Among th...

    Very disappointing I have really enjoyed some of his earlier books. This one was a huge let down. No character development to the point that you couldn?t care less if the main characters were all murdered half way through the novel. ...

    This book of spycraft is told so authoritatively that it's almost possible to overlook how slight it is. The plot is preposterous, amounting to waving a magic wand repeatedly. The world's greatest hacker is discovered and he can bridge the "air gap," meaning he can hack into computer s...

    I've always loved Forsyth's books, so I was excited to see a new one out. It was a fairly quick, enjoyable read although I found it lacked depth and complexity. Everything fitted together too well, the good guys always came out on top with minimal casualties, the bad guys were always o...

    One would expect better from the author of "The Day of the Jackal." ...

    A great espionage tale set in current times. ...

    Book Review: The Fox by Frederick Forsyth Quite a disappointment to say the least, considering readers' excitement due mainly to the writer's name. This book is a globalist's pipe dream disguised as a thriller, a bit too clever by far. Very little of the story is centered on the ...

    Terrible book. Much like Wilbur Smith and Tom Clancy, Forsyth has entered the realm of successful thriller writers that allow publishers to ghost write books for them. This book has none of the style, or pace of of a Forsyth novel. There?s no depth to any of the characters and the pl...

    Not Such a Cunning Fox! For once, with this author, when a publisher puts extravagant claims in their blurb it's hard to argue. Frederick Forsyth has written some of the all-time thriller greats so deserves the ultimate respect. They suggest he defined the thriller genre so is he st...

    We?ve been enjoying Frederick Forsyth since his debut with ?The Day of the Jackal? in 1971. Unlike other popular authors, he doesn?t pump out a full-length novel every year, but rather has published a new international thriller at roughly three-to-five year intervals ? a span...

    This adventure centres on a teen lad with Asperger's who lives in his computer attic and hacks. Ah - no it doesn't. If it did he'd have lines, right? This adventure centres on a retired agent who is called back by a Theresa May lookalike to control the young hacker Luke and point him...

    Once upon a time there was an autistic English boy that could hack Anything. He causes havoc in all the Bad places in the world and survives several attempts at assassination. He does all this within 7 months so he never gets any older. Then, because this is a fairy tale, he becomes a ...

    Frederick Forsyth has been one of my favorite authors for many years although he seemed to have peaked with what may have been his first book, The Day of the Jackal. The result was that I hadn't read one of his novels in years but I decided to give The Fox a shot because I knew that, m...

    2.5 Stars at best! The epitome of average. I love Forsyth, some of my favourite works are his but this will not be one of them. It feels like a political rant in places, in others a review of world events. Through all this is an unrealistic, unbelievable, even ridiculous plot which has...

    Forsyth continues to master the international spy thriller in his latest book. "The Fox" has hacked into the NSA, and US and British agents join forces to find the hacker. The story is modern without relying on excessive technical detail. The scenario is both plausible and frightening....

    Aunque la trama en principio es muy interesante, el servicio de inteligencia de EEUU ha sufrido una intromisión,"un ataque", sin embargo, no han robado nada, no han dejado nada, no hay extorsión... no han dejado ni una solo pista de quién o qué puede haber sido. Adrian Weston ex je...

    I find this boring and tough to follow. 2 of 10 stars ...

    3.5 stars, rounded up (for all of his past accomplishments in this genre.) Someone has hacked into the impenetrable computer systems of the U.S. intelligence community. Turns out, it's a 18-year Brit, working in his attic with standard equipment, who awakens to find a team of black-cla...

    Worst Forsyth book ever written. The book was a horrible disappointment. The overarching plot can be at best described as genius boy waving his magic fingers to defeat all the enemies of the West using a computer. And I use the "magic" deliberately because though the book is about h...

    Actually 2.5/5 Picked this up with great expectations, having been a fan of Forsyth's novels. But was disappointed. The writing style is good enough, the flow, the language. But where is the story? (view spoiler)[You suddenly come across a hacker of all hackers and get impossible thin...

    "This is what I've been missing, I've read two Tom Clancy books recently and have been really disappointed in how the writers who have continued his franchise have handled the series. Thank goodness for Frederick Forsyth, a writer that truly understands how espionage should be writte...

    Interesting premise, solid research, and informative detail, but lacking a cohesive story to weave it together. Basically an analysis of current global politics and how the UK might cyber-attacks against geopolitical foes, but it just jumps from one incident to another without an actua...

    Forsyth is 80-years-old, and he writes a book that is one of the most relevant and current pieces of mystery and thrill that there is available. I will skip over the synopsis of the book, but long story short, there is a young hacker, Luke Jennings, who assists in finding "The Fox". ...

    Thank you FREDERICK FORSYTH for writing THE FOX. Thank you G.P. Putnam's for publishing it. The 21st century has seen the birth of a new type warfare - cyberwarfare. Mr. Forsyth has produced a book whose plot seems to be ripped from major news headlines (not "fake news!"). Among th...

    Very disappointing I have really enjoyed some of his earlier books. This one was a huge let down. No character development to the point that you couldn?t care less if the main characters were all murdered half way through the novel. ...

    This book of spycraft is told so authoritatively that it's almost possible to overlook how slight it is. The plot is preposterous, amounting to waving a magic wand repeatedly. The world's greatest hacker is discovered and he can bridge the "air gap," meaning he can hack into computer s...

    I've always loved Forsyth's books, so I was excited to see a new one out. It was a fairly quick, enjoyable read although I found it lacked depth and complexity. Everything fitted together too well, the good guys always came out on top with minimal casualties, the bad guys were always o...

    One would expect better from the author of "The Day of the Jackal." ...
