More About the Author

Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide.

During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop.

He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is a patron of the Help for Heroes campaign.

I bought this book the other day and i started reading it as always with McNab his books spring to life in the first few pages. As for the content it is well worth a read for those budding McNab fans out there that have followed the life and troubles of the famous character Nick Stone. It was well worth the wait and hopefully Stone will continue to be the focal of McNabs books

Awesome

I have read all of Andy McNabs other books so I thought I would buy this one as holiday reading.

To be honest, its not really any different from the other books so if you enjoy them this will appeal to you.

The basic plot is about a former SAS trooper who in the past has worked with MI5 (The firm). When on holiday in Ireland Nick finds a bomb under his car (as you do) and then embarks on the most incredible journey trying to find out who was responsible. Is it the firm clearing up loose ends or is it some terrorists who Nick has upset in the past?

There is plenty of action, lots of violence, spy trade craft etc and a plot that is very fast moving which keeps you turning the pages.

Whilst it was a good page turner, the plot is so far fetched its farcical. Nick is one of those invincible warriors who always ends up killing the bad guys and saving the good guys. Its only once you finish the book that you sit back and think, how did he do all of those things on his own and how on earth did the bad guys follow him and track him.

That said I am sure I will end up buying the next Andy McNab book but I hope the plot is slightly more plausible.

Format: Paperback
Andy McNab revolutionised men's fiction, being the first author that made action fiction read as raw and real. Mostly because his writing was largely based on reality. His first fictional book was called Remote Control and to this day remains one of the best books I have ever read. But that was in 1997.

Brute Force sets Nick Stone in familiar territory. Starting with the premise of an idyllic Christmas with a beautiful woman and her young stepdaughter. Of course this is Nick Stone and that lasts no time at all. Having survived an attempt on his life he begins a search for his would be killers that goes from Ireland to England, to Europe and beyond.

Having finished the story and now looking back on what happened it contains a lot of what I love about these books. The reality though is that I found it verging on tedious a great deal of the time. It was a book I got through and not a story that pulled me through the pages.

The problem here is that we know Nick Stone is going to be threatened but not die, so at no time is there any sense of threat or urgency to anyone that we care about in the story. There is nothing between the beginning and end that gives us any feeling that we are doing anything other than heading towards the next step that will inevitably take us to the showdown where Stone will confront the bad guy, and survive.

That said, the second half was by far better than the first. It is also written in the first person perspective and Nick Stone's dry outlook on the world is often very amusing. It sometimes shows it's face here, particularly at the beginning.

For the past 5 years I have made it a habit to buy and Andy Mcnab book to read at leisure around the pool whilst on holiday. I never find time to read the rest of the year and these books suit me perfectly as within 30 minutes of opening the book you are thrown into a new world and I find myself struggling to put the book down. Brute Force lived up to my expecatations once again. It wasnt my favourite of the Nick Stone series but was still a great read. For those of you who like to feel like you are really there there is great description allowing you to really picture events as they happen. As I have said I only find time to read when on holiday so im not what you would call a major book critic so if you are in the same boat then I recommend you buy this book.

Brute Force by Andy Mc Nab
Brute Force is Mc Nab's 11th Nick Stone novel. It is published by Bantam Press and its ISBN is 0593055624. Nick Stone fans will not be dissappointed. It is action packed fast and furious. It is a real page turner and ended too quickly for me. Stone used be in the UK special forces but is now retired. Still someone is trying to kill him. First his car blows up and then a man on the back of a motorbike tries to gun him down. He sets about trying to discover who is trying to kill him. This journey makes him revisit his past and he travels from Ireland to Norfolk to Libyia. It is a great but violent thriller. Fans of Mc Nab or terrorist novels must buy this.

I have bought and read all of Mr McNab's books to date and I enjoy them enormously. This one is, in my opinion, his best novel to date because it has more layers of complexity. It picks up where the previous novel ended and starts off a little slowly, but then it kicks into high gear and races across Europe and the Muddle East. It has the elements you expect from the author - his tradecraft and professionalism - and some new elements that will surprise his readers. My only criticism - it ended and now I have to wait for the next one (but I have Seven Troop to read in the meantime).
