From the summary above, you can see that these topics are taken from things that dominate today's headlines. Its this sense of, this could possibly happen, which makes Fortress an interesting novel. The book itself starts off slowly but it soon develops into a page turner, about half way in. One of the reasons for this is that McNab writes in a certain style. The chapters are short and written from differing points of view. For me, this doesn't stop the flow of the story. It provides alternative points of view and there is always a cliff hanger at the end of each chapter. The reader is always left always wanting to read, "one more chapter".
I'm reading the Tom Buckingham novels in reverse order. Not a conscious choice. More about the order I got access to the books themselves. So, I can say that the more I'm reading the more they're making sense!
The various political aspects and mind games in the book offset the moment by moment action. The guns, knives, hand-to-hand combat and explosions. This means that the body count in Fortress isn't high. The blood doesn't flow as much as some of McNab's novels. That's not to say that there isn't a fair amount of carnage!
The book leaves quite a few loose ending hanging. But its all wound up nicely in the next installment in the series, 'State of Emergency'
The story is ok but it doesn't connect with the first Tom Buckingham book. Leaving a lot of lose ends unexplained from the first book.
Was hoping for more SAS adventures/ missions and not spy stories, as they are already covered in the Nick Stone books.
It may take a couple of reads to get the full detailed story, but not an edge of the seat book
As with all McNab's books you always get the feeling that he he writing from experience which makes it all the more chilling.
Can't wait to read the next installment.
The section about Sam wasn't as strong for me, but it like all the military and SAS stuff, so a normal immigrant was just a necessary evil for the story. I've just finished this obviously, and I've gone straight onto Amazon to order another book by Mcnab.
This book is ok. I'm not sure it's an Andy McNab book though? You get 2/3 through the book and realise not much has actually happened in terms of excitement and action. The last third is not that much an improvement. Nothing that fascinating or new to learn here like I feel you get the series of Nick Stone I enjoy either.
Ghost writers are out there, I hope that's not the route this series is going down, but your typical Nick Stone/Andy McNab book it's not for me and just doesn't read like one, hopefully I'm wrong on that.
Sorry. But a bit of a let down really. In future I will stick with the Nick Stone series from the author (new book out in that series soon! :) ).
