    One thought on “Snowden – Maailman halutuin mies”

    1. Η προσωπική ιστορία του αμερικανού πρώην στελέχους της κοινότητας των μυστικών υπηρεσιών,που αποκάλυψε το αδιανόητο εύρος των παράνομων και αναίτιων παρακολουθήσεων που κάνουν οι μυστικές υπηρεσίες των ΗΠΑ και του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου σε εκατομμύρια, χωρίς καμία άδεια κα [...]

    2. When the news broke late in May 2013 about a junior contract employee of the National Security Agency (NSA) who had fled to Hong Kong with a collection of top secret documents about US intelligence practices in his possession, I didn’t pay a great deal of attention. Nor did I think much of it when the first stories surfaced in the Guardian and the Washington Post that were based on the purloined documents. The headlines merely seemed to confirm what we in the public had learned from previous d [...]

    3. Radio and TV coverage of the Snowden leaks were spotty. This book helped to fill in the details, background, and what happened since Snowden showed up in Moscow. Snowden himself, and his girlfriend Lindsay Mills, are fleshed out a little more, and I learned why an American would go to British journalists, the Guardian, with the information he had purloined. It turns out the British, specifically their top-secret telecommunications monitoring arm, GCHQ, collaborated with the NSA: “We have the b [...]

    4. For those of my generation, you will recall reading 1984 and Brave New World. The debate was how society might evolve toward some form of totalitarian control. In fact today both forms, drugs and invasion of privacy are complimenting each other to reach such goal. Snowden's book written by The Guardian's journalist shows how far this pervasive spying on everyone is been carried out through the internet, phone and all digital tools. The point that Bin Laden knew that and did not even have a phone [...]

    5. Life as we know it is now almost entirely on the internet. When we are not on the phone (which in itself is a rare thing), we are on the computer or the tablet swimming in the ocean of the internet. We live, play, work, love and trade on the internet and build our entire identities there. I will complete this review and post it on an online forum which is again an irony from the POV of the book. Imagine the kind of information that is available in the world of the internet, everything we have ev [...]

    6. Δεν είναι λογοτεχνικό βιβλίο είναι όμως αρκετά ενδιαφέρον. Σου δίνει μία ελάχιστη εικόνα από τον θαυμαστό κόσμο των μυστικών υπηρεσιών και του κατεστημένου. Βλέπεις πόσο μακριά έβλεπε ο Οργουελ και ανατριχιάζεις. Διαβάζοντας το δεν μπόρεσα να μην ξεκαρδιστώ στα γέλια ενθ [...]

    7. Εξαιρετικό.Η πρώτη μου φορά που διαβάζω τέτοιου είδους βιβλίο.Έχει στοιχεία,ημερομηνίες,μαρτυρίες,κρίσεις,ερωτήματα,όλα.Και επιτέλους κατάλαβα τι ακριβώς έγινε στην υπόθεση Σνόουντεν,η τηλεόραση μάλλον μπερδεύει αντί να πληροφορεί.

    8. Το ότι οι κυβερνήσεις των χωρών των χωρών-με πρόσχημα την πάταξη της τρομοκρατίας-παρακολουθούν απλούς πολίτες μέσω e-mail, τηλεφώνων κλπ δεν είναι αυτό που συντάραξε. Μάλλον θα πρέπει να είσαι αφελής για να πιστεύεις πως κάτι τέτοιο δε συμβαίνει. Το σπουδαίο που προέκυψε απ΄ [...]

    9. First off, I'd like to apologize for not posting earlier. I finished the book a couple of months ago, and have only recently found the time to write a review. As to the book, I appreciated it because of its perspective. In my opinion, I feel that the message is simple, concise and unbiased. As opposed to what you will get from the American mass media, the UK media etc we are given an inside view of the thoughts and reasoning behind the actions of a young man who felt compelled to out what he fel [...]

    10. Great . . . if you're a journalist and like the fast-paced action and efforts by the Guardian to protect freedom of the press and the First Amendment. Curious that a newspaper in the UK is seeking protection of the First Amendment when the UK does not even have either a Constitution or Bill of Rights like we enjoy here in the US. It begs the question: Where was the US Press -- or the Fourth Estate -- when all this was happening under our noses? To ask the question is to answer it: asleep at the [...]

    11. Άπειρες πληροφοριες.Πολλα ονοματα,πολλες ημερομηνιες.Ακρως διαφωτιστικο σχετικα με την υπόθεση ΣνοουντενΤα ΜΜΕ τελικα πιο πολυ παραπληροφορούν και καθοδηγούν παρα ενημερώνουν.

    12. When the Patriot Act first passed in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, I was part of a group that organized panel discussions and protests against the act. The kind of wholesale surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden was exactly the kind of thing, we feared, for which the Patriot Act paved the way. And although the consensus (as far as there is one) seems to be that the post-9/11 surveillance techniques of the NSA over-reach even the provisions of the Patriot Act, the law allowed for just a little [...]

    13. Ο Luke Harding, έκανε μια εκπληκτική δουλειά, συγκεντρώνοντας όλο το υλικό σε ένα ενιαίο κείμενο. Ένα συναρπαστικό αφήγημα, με γρήγορο ρυθμό, το οποίο διαβάζεται απνευστί. Συστήνεται ανεπιφύλακτα!«Δεν θέλω να ζω σε έναν κόσμο όπου οτιδήποτε λέω, οτιδήποτε κάνω, σε οποιονδήποτε μι [...]

    14. I harbor substantial feelings about Edward Snowden, but this review isn't about my personal feelings, it's about Luke Harding's work. So whether you view Snowden as a hero, or a traitor, I think this book is worth your time and attention.The text is accessible, the information is intriguing, but the book is bias, and its subjective slant mars what would have been an enjoyable reading experience. And I feel this is a tragedy to some extent, as the subjective angle was unnecessary. This would have [...]

    15. The Story was fascinating and horrifying at the same time. I followed the Edward Snowden storey in the news but was not aware of the sheer enormity of the snooping done by the NSA and GCHQ (in the UK) that he uncovered. Which is to say literally billions of phone calls and emails by pretty much all Americans and Brits and a large part of the planet, foreign leaders and close allies, US companies, Foreign companies that had nothing to terrorism. Building in back doors to encryption software, goin [...]

    16. This dude has balls of steel. Being in the bad books of US government and not getting caught is no easy feat to pull off. That shows how smart he is.He never went to college, but made it to the IT department of NSA. It was possible only because of the openness of this country in recognizing and encouraging talent. On the other hand, the same country silently spies on its citizens and almost everyone on the planet. It's like setting your teenage child free and tracking their movements secretly by [...]

    17. If you are like me. I barely noticed the Edward Snowden affair that spread throughout the media like a wild fire this past summer and fall. All I knew was that he leaked national secrets out of the NSA. The official U.S. spy agency known as the “National Security Agency” or “Not Secret Anymore” thanks to Mr. Snowden’s actions. I really didn't care at the time but I do now. I have just finished reading a book titled “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man [...]

    18. Scary, more frightening than a horror movie. The uncovered truths, revelations, lies that the U.S. and British governments have weaved is beyond belief. EVERYONE is spied on, no one is immune by the machinations of the NSA and GCHQ. Spying on the President of Brazil, spying/listening to Angela Merkel's private phone messages, millions of American, Latin, European, Middle Eastern and Asian citizens - no problem. We have become entrapped in a survilence state where these agents are so paranoid ! A [...]

    19. Luke Harding's The Snowden Files is a well-constructed overview of the biggest intelligence leak in history - but it is not without its flaws.The Guardian journalist tells a detailed story of Edward Snowden - from his childhood in a military, Republican family, his short education and brief, failed army career, to his meteoric rise through the intelligence services that eventually enabled him to turn whistleblower.It's an intriguing tale. Far from being a left-wing radical, Snowden is a staunch [...]

    20. The beginning of the Snowden Files by Luke Harding is quite promising. You have a feeling like you're reading a spy novel. The story begins with Snowden having a somewhat normal life, working for the NSA and living in Hawaii with his girlfriend. But, as we all know, one day Snowden disappears with hundreds of top secret files and the hunt begins. He ends up in Hong Kong where he meets journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill. This was the most interesting part of the book fo [...]

    21. Let's put aside the debate whether Snowden was right or wrong to release thousands of classified government documents and focus on what the outcome of this was. To me, the outcome (or reason for releasing the documents) is the real issue here.Imagine you are in an airport, would you say the word "bomb"? Imagine you are on Google in your private home on your private internet, would you search "how to make a pipe bomb?" or "how to make a fertilizer bomb?". Probably not. And why? Because you are aw [...]

    22. The story of Edward Snowden and internet laws continues. By now everyone will have heard the latest, and if not do so now because it concerns you.Fear factor. What is it and how is it? A lot of people subscribe humans fears as: the unknown, invisible threats and what is beyond our control. Now many of us know of the invisible threats, quite a few of us as children were afraid of the dark and monsters under the bed. Racism is fear of the unknown. You don't really know that person or what it's lik [...]

    23. I have not followed the unfolding of Snowden's leaks or those of Julian Assange, so this story was enjoyably fresh. And having only just finished 'The Code Book' the theoretical dilemma between crime fighting and privacy and the respective restriction/free access on strong encryption, Snowden's story came as a timely example of the practicalities. And then my daughter started reading 1984 for school, reminding me of the dire picture painted of the intrusive state spying agency, and the thought t [...]

    24. A couple of times this year I've encountered a book that I learned a lot from, but wasn't completely entertained by. It's a weird category, but an important distinction to make because entertainment isn't the only (or even the most important) criteria for suggesting a book. This is one of those books. This is important. If you don't understand who Edward Snowden is or why he's significant, or what our government permits itself to do, then I would suggest this book. If you already know these thin [...]

    25. ‘I don’t want to live in a world where everything that I say, everything I do, everyone I talk to, every expression of creativity or love or friendship is recorded’. Edward SnowdenThese two lines says it all. Yeah. Pretty much. I too don’t want to live in a world…. Reading this book, I got really scared like, OMG, they are doing this and this to us. I’m not alone in a dark room, no one around me where I supposed to be alone. You are not anonymous, every single thing you do in interne [...]

    26. A marvellous book that reads like a Frederick Forsyth thriller - except it is all true. I had not paid enough attention to Edward Snowden and the NSA so sought to rectify that with this book and I'm glad I did because I cannot imagine a better introduction to the subject. Harding includes all the main characters from Snowden himself to Glenn Greenwald and co to the role of the Guardian and the New York Times as well as the UK government in the story. So all the complexities of this fascinating s [...]

    27. I read this for one of my book groups. It gave me a lot of information. I don't know that it changed my mind about Snowden. It is clear that he broke the law, but did he do what was morally right? I think that he is correct that he could not take his concerns up the chain of command and have them serious considered for the same reason that it is unreasonable to believe that people who have been a part of the system can objectively monitor what is being done. I do think that the methods he says a [...]

    28. This book tells the complete story of Snowden. Freedom of the press is indeed very important in a well functioning democracy. Snowden had revealed to the whole world the extent of surveillance that the NSA is performing continuously. Gone are the days of wire-tapping and hidden cameras for suspects; now everyone's electronic communications are stored for analysis forever, and they can listen to anyone in the planet. I had learnt a great deal about Snowden through this book.
