Gabriel Allon

Who is Gabriel Allon?

He is a fictional Israeli spy who I am obsessed with in the book I am currently reading.

I already mentioned that my long commute is the perfect opportunity to catch up on reading among other things and I have been reading like a maniac. I should also note that I am a speedy reader. I don’t read every word, I’m a skimmer. If I ever feel like I missed something and need to go back and read every single word, then I’ll do it. But, that doesn’t happen often. I browsed the NYT bestseller list and The English Girl caught my attention – it sounded similar to the James Patterson Alex Cross novels I’ve loved so much (though I still haven’t read every single one of them!) – so I purchased it. Well. Let me tell you. I flew through that book and immediately looked up the author to see if he had written more book and jackpot! I had just read book #13 in a series of novels all about my new favorite spy. I promptly downloaded the first two books. Quickly read book one and am now working my way through book two. Only 10 more to go….

So, thank you Daniel Silva for making my commute very enjoyable as I devourthe adventures of Gabriel Allon.
