5.0 out of 5 stars Thinking mans techno thriller, 4 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Without Warning (Hardcover)
I keep thinking that Birmingham writes "thinking mans" techno thrillers. Without Warning is certainly in that category - most thrillers with the idea of "America disappearing" would turn out to be an Anti American polemic. The rest of the techno thriller market tend to glorify US military prowess with scant regard to foreign policy morality. WW like its author, refuses to be pigeon holed and is stronger for it. Just like the new battlestar galactica appeals to people who don't traditionally like Sci Fi, this should appeal to those who don't traditionally read technothrillers. And for those who do it does have some very gratifying hardcore moments. My only criticism is that it is clearly part of a two or three book sequence (I like my end of the world to come in one "The Stand" sized cataclysm) as a consequence Birmingham has yet to pull the trigger on some of the plot threads.
