"The stuff of pulp paperbacks has been getting new life and new brawn on audio." (Philadelphia Inquirer)
"Good listening for the long drives across our country." (rpm Magazine)
I HAVE READ THE PAPERBACKS A FEW TIMES AND I JUMP AT THE CHANCE TO HAVE THEM ON AUDIO. THIS IS A GREAT COPY OF THE FIRST 4 BOOKS OF THE SERIES, AND I LOOK FORWARD TO PURCHASING THE REST OF THE SERIES. OFCOURSE I ALSO HAVE THE WINGMAN COLLECTION II, WHICH HAS THE NUMBER 5-8 BOOKS.
You will know very quickly if you like this series or hate it! If you enjoyed it as much as I did then you won't stop until the end. Sadly (or with great anticipation) there is at least one episode; #9 that hasn't been recorded yet. Hawk Hunter lives on only to fight a never ending battle.(or does he?) Must be read in series to enjoy it fully.
I was hopeful that this series might prove exciting and interesting, however, it proved irritating and dull. Where to start, it is clear that the author understands as much about military hardware, tactics, and aviation as he understands about characterisation, plot and suspense.
It is bad enough that the lead ?caricature? is a psychic, MIT graduate, fighter pilot, who seems to have forgotten the first rule of air combat? ?Never, ever leave your wingman?? who loads so much ordinance on to his F16, as to not actually be able to take off, but the plot is so full of far right wing 70?s-80?s rhetoric as to be nearly funny.
Leave the Wingman to himself? he seems happier that way.
