Winning the game

20121112-070903.jpg

This book has to be one of the most enjoyable I have read for a little while. It’s fast paced, nicely detailed and has an intelligent plot. And a dog.

Jakob Grant is a college professor who is drawn into a web of intrigue which threatens the very security of the nation. He is fired from his job and becomes headhunted to resolve a problem within a computer program.

The dog is vital to the plot and I think it’s one of the few times where a dog in a book behaves like a dog but still has a very full role in the plot. In this case the dog is crucial.

I really enjoyed the detail of the computing and mathematical elements of the plot and it is obvious that there was real passion in writing these elements.

Was there anything that didn’t work? No, I don’t think there was.
