for any adult reader this book lacks any depth of character or scenario development and would be far better suited to little box26 March 2015
The concept of this novel and the planned story line would seem to offer so much. Unfortunately the juvenile writing ability of the author whose writing style and skills literally construct this book as if it were a diary of events. Even more ridiculously damning is the authors incessant use of the first person singular for many of the characters in this comic. Many, many times I found I had to stop and go back a page or two quite simply to find which character was the "current "I said, I did, I asked, I went" etc. One minute you (the reader- the subjective I) can be an American general, or a CIA boss, or a Russian general, or an American Captain or even a Chinese premier. Sorry, for any adult reader this book lacks any depth of character or scenario development and would be far better suited to little boxes with cartoon characters and speech bubbles. Even at the very low Kindle price this book is not even worth the effort required to flick from one page to the next.

I like the central character 'Guns' but this book doesn't utilise him to best effect. Poor editing is obvious and as I say the book comes over as a poor man's 'Red Storm Rising'. Clancy provided the definitive novel of modern warfare and his book 'The Bear and the Dragon' covers the exact same territory as this book. Not worth reading.

Set presumably in the mid 1980s, this book really suffers because it lacks a time stamp, location stamp and character identification at the start of each section. It can take quite a while to work out which character you are now with, as again the book is written in the present tense and in the first person, which works less well than in the earlier books. Still some interesting strategies, and I will finish the series, but it could be so much better. Some maps would not go amiss, too, given that most readers will be very vague about the geography of the area
