I know that the bulk of the threads here are about comics, but I don't read them.
I read military, spy, cop books
Web Griffin, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Clancy, Patrick Robinson, Dale Brown, David Baldacci.
I was wondering if anyone else reads in this genre and what your favorites are.
I'd have to say my favorite is Web Griffin, by the way. Guy writes a WWII book as well as he writes a modern cop book. Hope he's taught the son well, cause I think he's pretty old.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy - Swift
The Jason Bourne books are pretty good. I read the three all in a row which was probably a mistake as I was so sick of the spy genre that I haven't read anything similar in about 4 years. If you've seen the films, only the first film/book really match up at all.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Have you read any of the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child? They're pretty good, at least the ones I've ready. Also, I would totally recommend anything by Dennis Lehane (Gone, Baby, Gone - anything in that series, Shutter Island, or Mystic River). Lehane's stuff really aren't all cop books, but it's good stuff.
I don't generally read much in this genre, but I've picked up a few of the books by Jon Land in his Ben Kamal/Danielle Barnea series at airports to have something to read in-flight. They were great for that, briskly paced spy/history novels that kept me turning the pages without having to work too hard.
I don't read much of this genre. But I have read all of the original Ian Fleming James Bond books and enjoyed them very much. I then read Devil May Care and thought it was really bad in comparison to Ian Flemings novels.
I actually thought Mighty Avengers was really good (best issue in forever). It adds a real espionage type of feeling to everything "Secret Invasion", and re-establishes Nick Fury as the total bad ass that he is.
