If you are looking for pulse throbbing action from the word go, this installment is not going to scratch that itch.
The pacing is slower than others in the series and the pay off at the end is far more tethered in reality than any Science Fiction book usually lands. This book will annoy those looking for shoot 'em up, the hero wins big and everyone goes home happy. You just need to wait a little longer. If you are fan of simply excellent Sci Fi, read this series.
If you are fan of this series, read this book. This is definitely one of my favorite series. The thought of battling 20 m tall aliens may seem so far fetched, but the characters make this all seem plausible.

No grand fleets of thousands upon thousands of starships fighting one another, as entertaining as that can be, this series almost feels realistic in its portrayal. Nuttles' The Empire's Corps, comes really close to the same character development. In Kloos' series there are just fewer characters and you get to know them much more intimately. Robin, keep doing what you're doing so Marko can keep on writing.
Enjoying the series.

Find more plots. Thank you for the entertainment. My only "complaint", if you will, is the part where Grayson retrieves the pistol that he had confiscated.
Pitiful oversight that. Kloos' Frontline series has always been about the people not the ordnance that some SF writers go for.
Andrew Grayson and his colleagues humanize the "military machine" and de-glorifies war while giving us a view of the sacrifices. A fitting analogy to current times.
I hope there is at least one more in this series and Andrew and Halley better not download the farm! I have enjoyed the previous books in the series and recommend them if you haven't already read them. This book was kinda slow, and the events seemed a rehash of what's happened earlier.
Also, little to nothing was resolved.

Only, the ones who plan to set him up, don't know Bob Lee. If you've seen the movie Shooter, it's based on this novel.
There are some a few fairly major differences. For one thing the movie is set much later. Bob Lee Swagger is a Vietnam Vet, in the movie he's placed in a later era.
While there are "fairly" major differences in the book and movie, I suspect anyone who likes one will like the other. The liberties taken with the story aren't used as so often happens to "rewrite" Bob Lee or any of the story's key points. Enjoy both as sort of "complimentary stories" or possibly two similar stories where some of the characters happen to have the same names.
What can I say here? I'm a shooter and I suppose that shooters might be slightly more prone to like the book, but I truly believe anyone who likes action novels will enjoy it. While there are some details as to ballistic performance and some detail on the rifles themselves there isn't so much as to drive away those who aren't "aficionados". Actually most of this touches directly on the plot.
You'll get to know Bob Lee, as well as Nick and some others well including our villains but you won't be overwhelmed with information. You won't come away knowing what Bob's favorite food is or if he has "hang-ups" You will get to know what you need and in some of your cases, you'll have known people like Bob Lee.
The story is fast moving slowing only slightly in a couple of places and it holds interest.
While there are a lot of action novels out there this one is moderately original. I've actually set out to find books like this one and while a few are close, so far I've not come up with any other than by this author that I'd say are "like it".
I suspect that readers will either like and identify with the protagonist of this one or not understand him much at all and not really like him. Maybe not I call this an action novel, it could also be called a thriller and will fit into either category. I'm not really fussed about pigeonholing it. Whatever you call it, it's not dull.View all 14 comments. Fiction River. Clancy's Op-Center Novels In the year , computers are the new superpowers.
While there are "fairly" major differences in the book and movie, I suspect anyone who likes one will like the other. Today, twenty years later, disgruntled hero of an unheroic war, all Bob Lee Swagger wants to be left alone and to leave the killing behind.
