    1 thought on “House of Cards

    1. This is a political thriller of the first rank. Even after having seen House of Cards on TV (the American version) this book was still a fascinating read. I could hear Kevin Spacey's brilliantly evil voice in many of the written lines. The use of the press to twist and distort political events and perceptions is well portrayed and utterly frightening, especially as we see the Koch brothers and Fox News seeking to do the same thing in America now. People are often ill-informed and naive, in the b [...]

    2. "Por su propia naturaleza, la ambición necesita víctimas"Este libro fue concebido con una premisa simple: como deshacerse de un primer ministro. Si bien esto puede realizarse de muchas maneras,y muchas veces ni siquiera que alguien alevosamente mueva los hilos, aquí esto es tejido en pro de satisfacer la ambición y vengar el resentimiento de un miembro del partido, A.K.A. nuestro protagonista, Frank Underwood Urquhart."La política requiere sacrificios. El sacrificio de los demás, por supue [...]

    3. It's a good read, but maybe not a great read. If we were allowed half stars it'd be three and a half. More than three for the intriguing concept. But.I think it may even be one of those rare occasions when the TV adaptation has something the book lacks. I think it's down to Francis Urquhart himself. Ian Richardson made him so believable and so intensely bad.I'm undecided whether or not to do books two and three.

    4. I don't use Netflix so I've yet to see the TV series (have these producers never heard of releasing to DVD before?) but the book is incredible and very deep when it comes to the ruthless nature of politics and the cutthroat atmosphere in the background of it all. With realistic characters and an engrossing plot, House of Cards is a book unlike any other.

    5. Todella viihdyttävä poliittinen valtapeli, jossa ei keinoja kaihdeta päämäärien saavuttamiseksi.Sanon nyt suoraan, että jos ei ole lainkaan kiinnostunut politiikasta (tai lähinnä siitä suljettujen ovien takaisesta, yleisöltä salassa pidetystä touhusta) niin tämä kirja ei ole sinulle. Mutta jos haluat päästä sisään Britannian parlamenttiin ja päästä lukemaan asiantuntemuksella kirjoitettua tekstiä niin kyllä, lue tämä.Jännää miten aloitettuani tämän kirjan en yhtä [...]

    6. 3.8/5 starsPolitics require sacrifice. The sacrifice of others, of courseSoThis is gonna be an interesting review. And probably as complex as that book and my feelings while reading it. I wouldn't say political thrillers are my cup of tea. I was never really interested in politics and how a country should be handled but 1) I was in mood for something corrupted and 2) my brother (who by the way is into politics) asked me to read it and tell him my opinion. I still don't know how I feel about it a [...]

    7. This opening book of the trilogy lays the groundwork for what looks to be a sensational British political series, centred on one Member of Parliament and his addiction to power, no matter the cost. The book opens after the latest general election, as cabinet posts are being mulled over, and certain people, sure to be getting something are left out in the dark. Cue the beginning of the end for those holding the reins of power. Any reader of this genre may see some of the Jeffrey Archer influences [...]

    8. I've long been a fan of the original BBC series based on this book and have always meant to read it, so with my son nagging me to hurry up and watch the new US series I thought it was time to finally get around to reading the book that started it all. Very glad I did. Well worth the read. Also makes me appreciate the full extent of what Andrew Davies so cleverly did with the original series. Love it!!Am now eagerly awaiting the next two books in the trilogy :).

    9. Ένα συναρπαστικό πολιτικό θρίλερ! Δεν θα απογοητεύσει κανέναν.

    10. bookreviewsbyme2.wordpressI will start right out by saying that while I have seen advertisements for the show "House of Cards", I have never actually seen the show. This is an honest review of the book, not a comparison between the book and the show. Now that is out of the way, let's talk about the book.I found this book to be extremely dull and uneventful. I definitely do not believe that this book should be classified as mystery/thriller, more like plain literary fiction.The plot is slow from [...]

    11. Basis for the BBC trilogy. I didn’t like it half as much. You don’t have the voice that the script, & Ian Richardson, gave to the evil PM. Lots of the better plot points were added in the script, too—like the reporter & the evil pol becoming lovers. Not to mention the ending. Still an interesting look at how a work can change from one medium to another. I liked it enough to probably read the rest of the trilogy. [Although I'll note here, almost a year later, that I haven't bothered [...]

    12. After sitting down and watching the adaptations of this novel on Netflix with Kevin Spacey in the lead role, I was hooked. I decided to read the original novels, and I was fascinated at how the character of Francis Urquhart came about. Set in the late 80's, FU is the Chief Whip for the majority party, and after the Prime Minister manages to hang onto his job, FU is expecting a sweet plum of a Cabinet position to fall into his lap. But he is passed over and FU vows a bloody revenge on the Prime M [...]

    13. Ho deciso di leggere questo libro dopo essermi appassionato alla serie televisiva e aver scoperto che in origine le vicende non si svolgevano in America (e nel presente) quanto in Inghilterra, e ormai un bel po’ di anni fa.Il cambio di location ovviamente imponeva un’enorme quantità di modifiche: il sistema elettorale, il ruolo aspirato, i finanziatori, le politiche… tutto diverso.Ho scoperto così la storia di Francis Urquhart, chief whip dei conservatori.Una storia per certi versi simil [...]

    14. Empecé a leer este libro, como seguro muchos otros, por la serie de Netflix. Increíble; increíble también la interpretación de Kevin Spacey, e increíbles también los IWC que con tanta elegancia porta el tío. Y hasta aquí las menciones a la serie.Este libro no está basado en la política estadounidense sino en la política británica. Michael Dobbs lo escribió, de hecho, cuando dejó de ser jefe de gabinete de Margaret Thatcher; cabe pensar cómo trataría a sus compañeros la Dama de [...]

    15. Στις περισσότερες (αν όχι όλες) των περιπτώσεων, δε μπορώ να διαβάσω ένα βιβλίο αν έχω δει την ταινία ή τη σειρά που έχουν προέλθει από αυτό. Το ίδιο ισχύει και με το House of Cards το οποίο το ξεκίνησα ξέροντας μόνο ότι έχει να κάνει με πλεκτάνες μέσα στο Βρετανικό Κοινοβούλιο, και [...]

    16. Προσπάθησα πάρα πολύ να διαχωρίσω το βιβλίο από τη σειρά, την ίδια στιγμή που δεν έπρεπε να το κάνω, καθώς η σειρά δε βασίζεται απλώς στο βιβλίο αλλά γεννήθηκε από αυτό. Ωστόσο είχα συνηθίσει το αμερικάνικο πολιτικό σύστημα. Σε κάθε περίπτωση πρόκειται για ένα εξαιρετικά κα [...]

    17. This was a highly entertaining political thriller. I loved following the journalist Mattie as she tries to understand what is going on. I also enjoyed "chief whip" Francis Urquhart machinations to get to power. Irreverent and fun. Makes me wonder about real life politics!

    18. One of the best political thrillers I have read The games, the characters and the intrigue - all just perfectly weaved to make it a fast and gripping read!! Thoroughly enjoyed it

    19. Всичко е позволено в борбата за власт: knigolandiafo/book-review/kРоманът е опростен като сюжет и поне за мен предвидим като край, но точно така и трябваше да завърши, всичко друго би било половинчато и безгръбначно. Хареса ми това затягане на напрежението, това изплитане на мрежата, тов [...]

    20. Me entretuvo bastante, aunque no tanto, como la serie.En efecto, fue la serie protagonizada por Kevin spacey (no he tenido el chance de ver la británica) la que me llevó a leer la novela que la inspiró. Y sí, el espiritú de FU (Frank Urquhart en la novela, Frank Underwood en la serie) es el mismo, aunque la personalidad de Spacey, y la modernización de la trama, hacen más formidable al personaje de la pantalla.Para quienes no conocen la trama: El Primer Ministro es reelegido. El Whip de s [...]

    21. I thought it was okay. I don't think I was totally enamored with it, but it was something nice to read and since I watched 4 seasons of the Netflix series, it was interesting to see parallels. I can definitely see the basis for some of the Netflix characters. All in all, not bad, it had the appropriate amount of backstabbing, runaround, and general politickiness (new word!) one would expect from an election year.

    22. YOU might think:- this book is rather tedious and dull- without much description or characterization- it doesn't flow well or have much emotion behind it- it might have been better had it stuck with "FU"'s narrative voice from beginning to end- the BBC series with Ian Richardson smirking and winking into the camera is far superiorBut I couldn't possibly comment!

    23. Libro scorrevole, ma che pecca di eccessiva logicità nella sequenza degli avvenimenti, mancando di quei colpi di scena inaspettati e- per che no- improbabili che l'avrebbero reso più eccitante e sicuramente indimenticabile- come dicono sia la serie tv. (view spoiler)[Bello il finale (hide spoiler)].

    24. Ούτε αστέρι δεν θα βάλω αν μπορώ, μου είναι εντελώς ακατανόητο. Μέχρι εδώ που έφτασα μιλάει για τις εκλογές στην Αγγλία, για τον τρόπο που λειτουργεί η βουλή τους, για τις ατιμίες των πολιτικών κα ιτις σχέσεις τους με τους δημοσιογράφους. Διαβασμένο: σελ 142/485

    25. N-am să descriu cartea prin adjective siropoase de genul "superbă", "minunată" etc deoarece scrierea se ridică mult deasupra acestora, în primul rând, iar în al doilea, acestor termeni nu le văd locul lângă o carte cu un nucleu central nemilos, crud, şocant: lupta pentru putere. Inițial cartea pare o banală înşiruire de evenimente obişnuite de pe scena politică, însă pe măsură ce acțiunea îşi urmează cursul, lucrurile se complică, situația devine presantă şi întâmp [...]

    26. Myślę, że wielu serialomaniaków zna i uwielbia rewelacyjny serial „House of Cards” ze znakomitym Kevinem Spacey’em. Fenomen tego serialu pokazał, że polityka wcale nie musi być nudna a pojedynki słowne między przedstawicielami władzy potrafią być równie interesujące i zajmujące jak komercyjne widowiska Hollywoodu. Niewielu jednak pamięta, że serial ten to w rzeczywistości remake, nowa wersja brytyjskiej miniserii z lat 90-tych (mimo wszystko ciut lepszej od swego następc [...]

    27. Искам да й дам повече от 5 звезди! Брилянтна!Отивам да купя другите две!Скоро в блога

    28. Výborný politický thriller s trochu šablonovitými postavami, ale perfektní zápletkou a hlavně dokonale vykresleným prostředím. Jen nemůžu říct, že je radost ho číst - na to je moc reálný :( Jdu zkusit i pár dílů seriálu, zatím jsem netknuta.

    29. „Къща от карти“ – кофата с лед на твоето политическо ежедневие - azcheta/kashta-ot-karti-miС уникално задоволство четох всичките близо 400 страници на дебютния роман на Майкъл Добс от 1989 г. Ако нямате идея кой е той, това е шефът на администрацията на Маргарет Тачър в последния й мандат [...]
