Reviews of Saving the Queen

Overall customer rating: 4.000

Excellent and a great read

by ghmus7 on Dec 31, 2007

The only reason this reviewer did not grant a full five stars to this work, is that, despite the usual fine Buckley writing, the witty and convincing dialogue, and the bright engaging charachters, is that I confess an uneasiness with the main 'event' of the book: the agent Blackford Oakes' affair with the Queen of England! Obviously, in an espionage-thriller genre such as any of the Blaxkford oakes novels, one needs to employ a certain amount of the suspension of belief, however, in this case it is just a bit too much of a stretch for the reader to manage (at least this reader!) However, don't let that deter you at having a go at this book, as the work is as fun as the rest of the Blackford novels, and a great read.
