5.0 out of 5 stars A storming read - impossible to put down.
The first Seymour book I have read and it certainly won't be the last. I was gripped and intrigued by the story of a rebel SAS captain who slips into Afghanistan to take on Russian helecopter gunships. Seymour's prose is so spot on you can taste the rawness and feel the heat of battle and desperation of the Afghan people. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars The last Gerald Seymour
I've made myself a promise that this will be the last Gerald Seymour book I ever read, because I find them so irritating on almost every level. The plot is laboured and contrived, the characters unsympathetic and barely believable, and the dialogue clumsy at best.
But my main objection is the writing, which is laboured and pedantic, as if the author is either trying...

A gripping story well up to the high standard of previous books by this author. Have read fourteen of his books so far and have never been disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars The last Gerald Seymour, 18 Jun. 2009
This review is from: In Honour Bound (Paperback)
I've made myself a promise that this will be the last Gerald Seymour book I ever read, because I find them so irritating on almost every level. The plot is laboured and contrived, the characters unsympathetic and barely believable, and the dialogue clumsy at best.
But my main objection is the writing, which is laboured and pedantic, as if the author is either trying to make some kind of obscure point, or alternatively isn't very good at it. For example, 'The father of Barney's father' - what's wrong with 'Barney's grandfather'? And the pointless, needless and frequent repetition of expressions and names - 'Gul Bahdur', for example, is tacked onto the end of virtually every sentence in one section of the book.
Like several other Gerald Seymour novels, I couldn't even be bothered to finish it, I found it so unpleasant and irritating. Really not very good at all, in short.
