Thomas Perry, A Great author, with fun for all

I love Mr Perry as an author, he has sarcasm, he has wit and his characters have a "Real person feel" to them. I love "Island" because the Harry and Emma characters are such appealing people. "Metzgers Dog", another Perry creation, has the same effect on me. It's all good.

Favorite Book Ever

Island is a masterpiece of adventure, suspense, charm, and of all things - nation building - literally! I can't understand why they haven't made a movie of it(Johnny Depp as Harry?). I read constantly in almost every genre and Island remains my all time favorite.

The best by a master

This book is one of a kind. Its heroes are con men but it is not a crime novel. It involves spies and invading armies but it is not a thriller. Perhaps the best clue is the beginning quotation, which is from Thomas More's UTOPIA. This book is about the perfect country, as desgned by a con man. It is hilarious, suspenseful, and a good, thoughtful, read.

Excellent Read

This is an excellent book. I had read Pursuit and was looking for something to read. I picked up Island and loved it. The story is highly original and not predictable. If your looking for a book that will have you engrossed pick this book up.

adds new meaning to the terms long-con and hostile takerover

Island is possibly one of the best caper mysteries ever. Certainly the best I've ever read. Thomas Perry has the unique gift of creating both interesting characters and an engaging and complex thriller/caper plot. His other books are all must reads but this one is a stand alone as we watch how a group of con-artists running from the mob attempt to pull off one of the biggest cons ever-- it's not everyone who can make their own country.
