The “Kurdish Connection” by Randall Krzak is an excellent and exciting read by a brilliant author who kept me entertained throughout the complete story. I liked the short chapters which kept this thrilling and well-crafted story moving with a lot of suspense and unexpected twists and turns which I didn’t anticipate. All of which made this an invigorating, fast-paced and great story and one of the best books I’ve ever read and one I seriously (and don’t mean to sound cliché) just couldn’t put down! The intelligent author writes very well in a highly professional manner. The author is accomplished since he has the ability to write clearly from several points of view, and I had no trouble following this story and the action and excitement generated by this author. If you like to read entertaining books that keep your interest, I highly recommend you read this book!"
Alright, so I've been something of a fan of the authors works over the past year or so. When I heard he got published I just had to buy this book. Alright so the general premise is that a Kurdish man near Halabja named Dersim finds a cave with a mix of normal weapons as well as chemical weapons from Hussein's attacks back 20 years ago. From there he decides to try and free his imprisoned leader Baziyan from the Turks. US intelligence gets involved, and tries to stop the use of chemical weapons by any means necessary. Okay, so the pros -An interwoven braidwork of POVs. I am a big fan of books with multiple POVs, and it works in the book's case. -Plenty of great action and plot turns. This book was really unpredictable, which really kept me on my feet. I mean you've got the Americans, the Kurds, the Turks, and the Syrians, all of which have differing viewpoints. It gets really interesting. -Nice, short chapters. As a working man, this is EXTREMELY important to me. -Character development. Several of the main characters really grow in this book, especially Dersim and Ismet. On to the cons, which honestly aren't too big of a deal in this case. -Names of Cities. I really couldn't distinguish the cities from one another as far as a mental picture in my head. They kind of bled into one another at certain points. -Character Names. Earlier in the book, I remember being confused as to who was who for a while. I think some more physical descriptions of the characters might help the reader develop a good mental image in their head. -Use of accents. From time to time there is overuse of accents like "Y'all" and "Aye" in the chapters. Y'all is sometimes used towards one person, but is supposed to be used with more than one person. (Not too big a deal, but something I picked up on since I grew up in Dallas, TX) So in conclusion, if you love action and adventure, I definitely suggest giving this book a shot. It's really good. I look forward to seeing more from this author!
