Sniper Bid... Buy it... Read it...
on July 31, 2011
The detail of Michenener; the background of Asimov; the twists of Brown; the passion of Sagan.
I wanted to write a review that did justice to Rick Robinson's (obvious labor of love) without trite hyperbole.
Those 4 comparisons are the best that I can do. Mr. Robinson provides details about the settings of the story and the necessary background of the characters and landscape in each chapter without detracting from the thread of the story. Just when you are speculating about the outcome of the story and book, confident that you know enough, he takes a different directon. He keeps you in the game and on your toes at the same time. Pay attention. All the way through the story; you know that it is being told by someone that cares. He cares about the topics; the characters and the time and place. I know because I cared too.
Sniper Bid... Buy it... Read it... then be prepared to read it again because it was so much fun the first time.
