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.
After reading this issue, I'm certain Marvel's big 2008 event has the potential to be the coolest thing they've done in a long time. It also has MUCH more potential to be the biggest trainwreck since the Clone Saga from a decade ago.
