5.0 out of 5 stars Sad but true 12 Sep 2001
By Gian Marco Mazzocchi - Published on Amazon.com
I read the book a few months ago and it's deeply sad to find out how it foretold the future. A future in which danger lies not in ballistic attacks but terrorism.
Simply told, almost 20 years ago the writers imagined the background and the dynamics that could lead to a disaster really similar to what happened yesterday.
My simpathy to all USA people for the great disaster that stroke their country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yard Sale Find 14 Feb 2002
By Ogr8ys1 - Published on Amazon.com
I paid 25 cents for this book and it was the best quarter I ever spent. This book grabs you at the beginning and does notlet go of you to well after you are done reading it. The subject matter is so topical that the 22 years from original press does not matter at all. Buy it used, find in in the library, or if you have money to burn buy it from a Zshop. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put the book down 11 Jan 2001
By PlanoTX - Published on Amazon.com
This is a prototype Tom Clancy book before there were Tom Clancy books.
I had bought The Fifth Horseman at an airport before a business trip. I read it on the flight for half an hour or so. Then it disappeared into the piles of non-essential materials.
Four months later, the book resurfaced. (Obviously, the first few chapters hadn't made much of an impression.) It was a morning in June about ten o'clock, outdoors on a hammock, when I started the book once more. It was in my den, after midnight, when I finally read the last page of the book.
What a story! A cliff hanger. Tremendous suspense. Extremely plausible. So good that I didn't read another novel for months because nothing else could compete with the experience The Fifth Horseman had provided. It was simply THAT good.
Amazon.com says this book is now out-of-print. Don't let that stop you. Buy it at auction. Find it at your library. Listen to it on audiotape. If you like books of international intrigue, this is the definitive suspense story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifth Horseman, Larry Collins, Dominique LaPierre 11 May 2007
By Christopher R. Marsh - Published on Amazon.com
I first read this book almost 15 years ago. It is practically bleeding with researched technical facts to enhance the plot, which is also captivating. Two main characters, Whalid and the President, seem to change their outlook later in the book.

It is a must read, especially now. A TLC broadcast from 1997, Doomsday: On The Brink, shows that as decades pass, such an incident might be inevitable. In the last 30,000 years, every other weapon the human race has invented has proliferated and been used. Decades? Centuries? Millenia? When the people who remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki have passed? Who might be tempted to push the button then? Not just political or military leaders, but terrorists?

A terrifying must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars is not enough for this book 14 Jan 2004
By Jorge Frid - Published on Amazon.com
Definitely this book deserves SIX stars, it will keep you reading from the first page till the last one, involves all the presidents of the world and even with that is an easy book to read, but here are my questions:

Why could this happened 25 years ago and not right now? I think that this book is timeless.
What does the president will really do?
What does the Police, FBI and CIA among others will really do? They really know how to handle this kind of problem?
All the countries will respect the president's decision?

Read this book and think about these questions.
