Most of the books that I read are nonfiction. I like to spend my reading time exploring new thoughts and interacting with new ideas. That being said, many nonfiction books can be quite boring. Reading them one after another can take a toll.
I remember in middle school how my mom would read Jeffrey Archer novels. For her birthday, I bought her one of them, and was intrigued by the idea of a long-running series.
I decided last year that I wanted to find a nonfiction espionage/historical fiction series that I could get into. I read Rainbow Six, but I didn’t like Clancy’s way of writing. It was challenging for me to follow, and the books were so dense. I tried one other series, but found the writing to have too much unnecessary sex.
Brad Thor hit it out of the park. I read this book in just a few days and loved every minute of it. His action sequences, unlike Clancy, got right to the point. The book lives up to its promise to be a thriller. Lucky for me, Thor has released a new book in this series every year since 2002. I’m going to circle back to the beginning and read the whole thing. It just might take me a while.
Would I recommend: YES
