This review is from: Ark Royal (Kindle Edition)
I read other books by this author the Inavsion of 1950, and the outside context trilogy thoroughly enjoyed the plots which I got into.
But this author seems to have a hit and miss, a hit when he is not trying to ram his view points down your throat.
I started getting into this book then he went into one about journalists, ok he doesn't like them, but his portrayal of them was pure one dimensional. I started to get the feeling that there was going to be a twist to the plot and that the journalists were responsible for the war and the worlds fleet and the aliens would combine to rid humanity of the journalist scourge.
Its a pity because this author comes up with great story lines and when he sticks to the story with no lectures or his personal views its a ripping yarn.
I hope there is a sequal to Invasion 1950, and that he writes the second book in the same vein. This one seems to be another of a plot written round his personal views. And the developing plot line where the older married chap gets of with the younger lass and its all the wifes fault, do we need it.
