I was totally surprised by Dickson. I had never heard of him or his series but the combination of action and deductive reasoning kept me eager to get to the next sequence of events throughout the the book. Always careful of honor, loyality and leadership to win the hearts of those around him.
From book 5 on the women are depicted as becoming more and more selfish, deceitful and basically intolerable. The men are mechanical, boring and insane. To applaud a hero they must have some redeeming qualities like respect for honor , loyality, sensitivity to the suffering of the the weak.

Ludlum's books always have imaginative storylines with sophisticated,historical references in the dialog but usually the action scenes are amateurish.Minor flaws but the very best of ludlum series
Seymour must have a biased (EU) view OF Americans, the main character American, when told Iranian terrorist are coming to destroy him chooses to stay among his family and friends and not warn them of the danger.

How has joe's reach not be more visible to people like myself. It was like Forrest Gump, he touched nations history from the shadows and we never saw his fingerprints. He was near achieving greatness that would exceed Jack's until he was ruined by his desperate fear of war that could take his sons from him. His influence over pres./pm /wallstreet/ newspaper barons ,even parliment is hard to believe
Much like my efforts at enjoying the Russian classics with to much intricate detail of how the simple minded ladies dressed and thought, the golden nuggets in "MOBY DICK" required to much refining to reap the metaphoric rewards. This series of ideas from devoted critics makes sure I need to be more patient and enjoy the prospecting as well as the gold.
