This one was very realistic going thru the chain of command and procedures on how SF personal interact, prepare and execute missions. The ending was a little disappointing, not sure an SFOD man would behave the way the main character did to the civilian in the end, not important to the overall though, the very end could have been omitted anyway more of an epitaph, also he mixed up high schools, Dewitt Clinton is on Mosholu Parkway not Evander Childs HS.
As a runner I loved this book, I think non runners will enjoy it also, although fiction it is based on an actural race and is an entertain listen.
This was a great read, not just about golf but also about a time period in America, 1935 to 1955. The author tracked the lives of several persons, some prosper and live long happy healthy lives why other end badly in self destruction and despair. Also tells the history of the Monterey Peninsula.
Always interested in getting some inside info in 1st SFOD-d, also a very good story, listening the next one now, also a page turner.
This is the final Micah Dalton Novel as it seems the author has gone black. I am very disappointed that we may not be seeing the 4th. As with the first two novels Stone brings his professional experience front and center along with great character development, both his male and female character are three dimensional and likeable. Also this novels gives the reader a lot of background on the Crimean Peninsula and Serbia which are areas typically not developed in other works of this genre.
This book is entertaining but not quite a page turner. I felt like it was written from the perspective of a 46 yr old rather than the 26 yr old that actually sectioned hiked portions of the PCT. Likely Oprah put it on her list as it aligns with her social values or abortion on demand. Seems liked the author regreted that she did not frolic with more of the young bucks on the trail at least she does now looking back 20 yrs, but I think that is true of most persons.
The author did share alot of herself in the book and it was worth the read.
This is the 5th Arkady Renko novel, all are entertaining and well researched, if you are interested in learning about Russia and the Ukrain in 2004 this is a must read. You
do need a quite place, his novels are not all page turners and some of the narrators are subpar, however all of his books are worth the effort. I am listening to Havana Bay now on CD as it is not available on Audible, this is very good also and is the 4th in the series, bought the CD's used for about $24 which is pricey but I do not think they are in great supply.
The two main characters seemed very similar to Elen and Vin in the mistborn series, especially Elen, Sanderson's writing is rather adolescent, but his books are always worth reading, even this one. Hope he does not get himself burnt out and also leaves himself some time to finish the stormlight series.
If you want the inside scoop on what life is like for a Bangkok club dancer this is a must read, also entertaining, did get for $4.95 but I would say it is worth a full credit also.
This was an interesting story and very enlightening, the author creates a portal into China's Southern Song Dynasty, making the book a must read for any history buffs interested in this time period.
Finished all four of the Dewey Andreas series, Book 1 was the most realistic as he author was in the energy field so it was very detailed and realistic, the other 3 we all good listens.
The author is very pro Israel and his treatment of Arab or Muslim characters if very one dimensional espsecially when compared to other authors of the same genre. He stories are entertaining though and hard to put down. I think the author needs to spend some time in some Muslim countries if he wants to improve this flaw in his stories.
