I really like political conspiracies, so this would be a great book to read. Computer systems crashing, nuclear attacks, it's all very timely subject right now. Thanks for the review!

Awesome review! I remember hearing about this book a while ago and the sample had me hooked. The plot of this novel is exciting and seems action-packed. The hidden themes also sound good. :)

You really made the story sounds interesting and enjoyable. I most particularly like the way the Iliad is brought in to parallel a modern day cyber attack.

Political thrillers really aren't in my wheelhouse, but your description of the depths of the characters and themes of the book makes encouraged me to take a second look at the book. Great review!

Thank you for your comprehensive review of Trojan by David L. Wallace. I am an English major and I love stories with a touch of mythology. Themes mentioned such as patriotism, integrity, and love for family would make this an interesting book. To the author, congrats on #BOTD!

The genius and the fool, the terrible and the simple are in every human. That's humanity. From the review I can see Mr Wallace put a finger on the fallibility and capability of man, a daily challenge we need to face and right from those closest to our bosoms. Great work.
