“The Navigator is not my usual type of novel. I don't like books that are suspense-filled, they make me anxious. I listen to most mysteries that I "read" so that I can't look at the last pages to relieve my stress. I can hardly sit through a movie where the hero or heroine is in any type of danger.
That said, I am glad I read this story. I was caught up in finding out what happens next from the prologue onward. I wanted to know what all the connections were and how the pieces would fall together. How exactly was Warren Hunter going to put together his trillion dollar deal?
I don't know anything about finance, Wall Street, banking or Internet Next. So I can't say that Pocalyko gets those parts right or he gets them wrong. I do believe he gets the people right and he makes me want to see if they succeed or fail.
I recommend this story to readers who can stand the suspense, to folks who like to see very disparate parts come together at the end of the novel and to anyone who wants to experience a new author who brings their own life experience to his novel.
