Can this really be the end?
on 13 May 2007
What a fantastic finale! I say that but at the same time I think it's a travesty that Meltdown is the last book of this excellent series - can the authors and publishers not be encouraged to continue it??
What I loved particularly about Meltdown was the fact that the authors successfully went for yet another topical and challenging subject and made it interesting, engaging and thought-provoking but also ultimately entertaining. Reading the Boy Soldier series inspired me to try one of Andy McNab's adult books but I'm afraid I didn't like it at all - despite being for 'young people' I find the Boy Soldier books far superior (and more mature) in every way, particularly in terms of the writing and characterisation. And that I know a wide variety of people between the ages of 12 and 80 who have also read and loved them all I think illustrates this perfectly.
