Journal Entry 1 by Maurean from Atlantic Beach, Florida USA on Thursday, August 20, 2009
I borrowed this one from my gal, Vick, as it had been on my wishlist for quite some time. I'm sorry to say, it wasn't as good as I had hoped.

(I actually read it back in March of '08, but Vick didn't want it back - she *did* warn me...)

n the inside cover, James Bradford says the book gave a candid insight that shows “that the ‘real’ life of a CIA spy is far from that portrayed by Hollywood.” If Moran’s book is any indication, I would say that’s no doubt true – the ‘real’ life is apparently much more whiny and, well, boring. But, of course, who out there *really* didn’t expect that to be the case? Obviously, Ms. Moran expected more “James Bond” and “Harriet the Spy”, as this is what she gives credit to as her source of inspiration for joining The Company, in the first place. We follow Lindsay as she interviews to be accepted, through her training to be a case officer, beyond her overseas posting, and finally to her eventual resignation.

While it was worth the few hours reading time to finish, this was NOT the “fascinating” look into the CIA that I was anticipating…nor, I’m sorry to say, was it as humorous as I was hoping it would be, either.
