The best spy

Post by Jacci » 01 Feb 2019, 19:16

Who is the best spy in the war?
Spy is very dangerous, but full of adventure sometimes. There are many spies in the story from the opponent and the defense. Who is your bet? Why?

My bet is Jacko. His techniques are simple, yet very useful.

My bet is Sarah. I can't imagine how she cripts inside the cave taking the two ladies out from the hands of the kidnappers.Her sense of sight and smelling is pretty amazing, too.

You have piqued my interest to read the book ASAP! The simple approach still holds its reputation as an effective one.

Same here! Jacko is very efficient and resourceful. And he's also that one spy that you can't imagine to be one; he can blend in easily.

Same here! The siblings have the same abilities merging in the dark. Darker skin-tone sometimes won the war; just thinking of.

It's quite long, but I bet you will forgot the time once you decipher each character's spy techniques.

People are more open when those around them appear aloof or harmless. The amount of information gained from simply being bland more than makes up for the lack of physical allure. That isnt to say that attractive people can't use other techniques to blend in. (I also think we tend to trust attractive people more, so double bonus.)

My honest bet is on Jacko O'Brien. He blends quit easily and has the razor sharp wit of a spy to boot.

I also think that the best spy is Sarah. She is super stealthy and athletic. She also uses unique methods to get the job done. I think she is a real role model.

Mine is Fifi. She also takes the risk to be with HENRY Marshall; deceiving him that she is a Texan lady, but Henry's enemy- a Jewish girl. She has the guts reporting to the MI6 while having a relationship with the enemy.

I have recently started reading the book, and by the looks of the comments here, I think it's going to be an amazing read.

Yes! I think this is because people were made to believe that the cleaner looking the better - which should be eradicated in our human nature because it simply is judgmental and derogatory. Smooth-talkers are the best spies though. They can get out in any situation and play the master puppeteer to those around them. :D

Plus, she's a woman. Her looks are as deadly as her intelligence and prowess. Though I liked Jacko, I can't deny that Sarah has the upper hand in deceiving the enemies. Also, she has the physical ability to do her job well and fast.

I think Jacko makes a great spy. He has many qualities for it. He is resourceful and unassuming. He just blends in.
