I like the hidden themes more than the central plot. Seeing people as people, irrespective of their financial or other attributes, is extremely important. Great review!

Great review! I like the Trojan horse symbolism for the mole inside the government. I love fast paced books that make you think at the same time. Sounds like a cool main character as well. 8)

I like the comparison of the Trojan horse in the Trojan War to the modern world in the case of a deceiving game to win. Enemies among friends, who will you trust, who will you believe? I love the story already. Great Review! :)

This sounds wonderful; treating all people as human beings regardless of rank is something we should all strive for, and I'm delighted to hear about a book with a protagonist who does so!

Great review. Very insightful. The sample I read was very interesting, full of intrigue and moving at a good pace. After reading your review I will have to put this on my 'to read list'.

conspiracy,gunflights,car crashes,creates hummor in the book it makes the reader focus and gives him the passion to read more,the enemy within also deals with an enemy hiding among friends when this statement is closely viewed it has some true fact in it and it will then drop a message to the reader,the protangonist view people as people which implies that there is no discrimnation of any level one is.i love the book,the book has both simple and complex diction and the use of figure of speech is well notified on the book.trojans by David wallance is a nice book :)

The Amazon sample I read bears little resemblance to the official review of Trojan. Hackneyed writing, a plot that resembles the latest apocalyptic movie or TV series, nothing to recommend it to someone looking for an honest read. I give it one star for effort.

Thanks for the detailed and honest review. I love the idea of going back in time and helping the readers relate with the ancient people. I will surely love this because of its theme of people and their relationships with one another in the face of fear and tragedy.

I was impressed by the story of the reality of the horse of the Greeks and their treachery of the Trojan people, and the Trojan horse virus that ruined the computer systems, because the same evil, Victor's character was good and loves the good of his family and his country.

Wow am actually impressed by the way you explained the tittle of the book and plot. I really love how it made us feel related to the characters because it made us feel close to there lives and this make us want to see how in one way or the other there characters or behaviour relate to ours. I really did not have a detailed understanding about Trojan horse and the fall of Troy prior to this. But now I can proudly say I understand it. It was really a good work. David L. Wallace really did a great work. :techie-reference:

What an eye opener review, this is so useful especially to those book reserchers, to the people in the field of IT and to those who are interested. I admire how you organized this review effectively which highlights the main character's role.
