Editorial Reviews

Review

Dog Soldiers is a novel so good, so interesting and serious and funny and frightening, so absorbing, so impressive, so masterful...It is splendid, terrific action suspense.

-- "Esquire"

A dark decendant of Conrad and Hemingway's adventure stories...Goes hell-for-leather across the landscape.

-- "New York Times"

Compulsively readable...As forcefully as any novel one can think of, this novel conveys the cynicism, the terror, and the appetite for new experiences that have marked recent years.

-- "New Yorker"

Harrowing...white-knuckled suspense...A here-and-now journey to hell.

-- "Time"

Narrator Tom Stechschulte offers a firm reading that relates the novel's events in a realistic and entertaining manner. He portrays Converse as a terse, hard-nosed character who still manages to be likable. Stechschulte's delivery is remarkably solid throughout. His characters' voices adjust accordingly as they journey through the plot. A gripping performance, to say the least.

-- "AudioFile"

Powerful, literally chilling.

-- "St. Louis Post-Dispatch"

Stone's Dog Soldiers became a seminal text for disaffected youth across the country but especially those returning home from war only to find themselves out of step, ostracized, or just wondering what the hell had happened-a generation of young men, drafted and armed, who came to recognize just how little anyone in power cared about the value or quality of their lives.

-- "CrimeReads"

The language is stripped and strong...[with] unerring dialogue and characterization.

-- "Kirkus Reviews " --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
