Book 8 of 9 in the "Brotherhood..." series. Good book that intertwines with "The Aviators" and set circa 1964. Again, the main characters developed well and are well traveled. There are minor errors of context, but the research is exquisite. Further, it's written from an Army perspective and isn't very joint in nature. Perhaps Special Ops did not get joint until after 1979? On to the last book of the series: "Special Ops."
I enjoyed this book so much that I couldn't put it down. It's a sci-fi thriller wrapped in a whodunit with a touch of mother bear and her cubs. Enjoyable read, one of Dean Koontz's first. However, unlike some Koontz novels, I wouldn't be afraid to listen in the dark.
Excellent whodunit...Alaska style. Our newly demoted Alaska cop finds himself in a small town with relationships that have existed for decades. He successfully navigates uniquely Alaskan issues and catches the bad guy. Where is the next book in the series?
Book 4 in the Destroyermen series continues to engage the reader. New characters emerge and a few of the old characters are enhanced. Silva, for example, becomes a central character who impacts events. New alliances and antagonists emerge while the old "Grik" bad guys continue in the background. Can't wait for Book 5.
Like the first novel I'm the series, a little clunky in the story. Full of innuendo and misunderstanding, the stuff of drama. Our hero, Rik, is clearly the object of bureaucratic preoccupation. Novel demonstrates ruling class obsession with status quo as the single product line appears superior to continued life on the planet. Asimov is one of the most revered SciFi writer, think I'll try another.
A historical fiction novel much like Shaara's Killer Angels, around the battle of Gettysburg. It concentrates on the people and conversations that might have occurred during the 3-day battle. It emphasizes Longstreet and Meade as well as some individuals in the trenches. Although nobody really knows the conversations that may have occurred, these are believable and one gets the idea of presence in the battle. I was especially impressed with the piece about Union general Dan Sickles, who counter to orders, caused the battles of the peach orchard and wheat field on the second day...by sheer obstinance and in search of glory. He spent the lives of his men for political capital.
Another quick Patterson sci-fi novel...this one atypical, depicting a possible world in 2061. While enjoyable, it was somewhat choppy in delivery. I almost put it away for awhile to see if it would get better...plodded on and finished.
Average work by the author; have seen better and worse. Fun read without much effort.
Knowledge more powerful than ignorance...a novel of exploration and discovery. Author writes about human expansion in the 21st century -- to the solar system. Pivotal character pulled between science and religion, which makes a thought-provoking read. Is this Sci-fi or prophesy? Where is the next book?
Not exactly your normal Scarpetta--she's trying to save her career and her livelihood. Assisted by her niece and her trusty sidekick cop, several new characters emerge and Scarpetta's character expands more fully as the plot gets thicker. Nice job Patricia Cornwell.
Poorly researched, choppy, stream of consciousness. I wonder why this guy even claims to be an author because the book does not hold interest for even a few minutes!
