In Heroes Proved, Oliver North gives us a neuro-igniting glimpse into the possible near future of America and the world. A propelling plot, compelling characters, and high technology combine to form one of the best novels you will ever read.
so to summarize... i would definitely recommend this book mostly for it's political commentary ... it also plays out like a clancy so it is a good spy like novel... the caution i give though is that it is very slow and painful to start...
This novel, however, was a grave disappointment, perhaps because I am so impressed with the trilogy. This book does not even belong in the "set," in my opinion.
Based on the raving reviews, I could not wait for this book to arrive. I quickly discovered, though, that this novel simply is not very interesting! The entire book is written as expository fiction--telling the tale rather than developing the setting and characters to let them tell the story. Case in point: at one place, Mr. North dedicated at least two pages to a technical message (all caps, etc.), and then for two more pages explains the exact contents of the message through dialogue, effectively repeating and what the message said. I suppose his readers are assumed to be too daft to figure it out themselves?
The dialogue gaffes continue. There is one crazy exchange between James Newman and his father's friend, a Senator. Here, James oddly details, most graphically, how he got his wife pregnant. I can't imagine such a thing like this actually happening!
Then the plot issues abound. There is the kidnapped retired-admiral-turned-inventor that can endure extremes of hurricane-tossed lifeboats and sweltering jungle heat, but cannot seem to overcome a single captor on a derelict tanker when waves are about to wash the villain overboard anyway? In many places the plot just simply does not make sense!
There is endless dialogue in this book when compared with the more action-packed trilogy.Read more ›
