The Men Who Stare at Goats by Jon Ronson

3.0 out of 5 stars Dont stare too long, 8 Dec 2004
Right, first off, not the best written book, a bit dry but Jon's sense of irony brings a smile here and there. But the factual information alone is worth reading. Amazing. Could it be true? Well, it was a good supplement to the "Crazy Rulers of the World" and makes you think. Then you could get angry as you realize that, if it is true, then truely, the lunatics are indeed running the asylum!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twisty !, 8 Dec 2004
A really pleasant read, where plots twists. You may be a believer - or not, but by the end of this you'ill find yourself suddenly on the other side! Very clever book. Written long before Dan Browns "Da Vinci Code" but in someways, they are similar and comparable ! A similar twist like Dan Browns Digital Fortress in fact. Its in the same league!

2.0 out of 5 stars Did I miss something?, 18 Nov 2003
One of Jack Higgins early books (released under his pseudonym Martin Fallon) I'm not a great book reader, but I found this one simplistic, jumpy and rather flat. It's a short book, the characters are thin and the plot rather simple. There are roughly 8 words a line in this 300page book which makes it a very fast read. I enjoyed Chromosome 6, and The Miracle Strain much better. I would rate those 4 or 5 stars, just to qualify this rating... ;-)
