In addition to the enjoyment of a well written novel, Brad Thor has provided us with an enlightened history of the Koran through almost 1400 years of Muslim ideology following the poisoning and death of Mohammed in 632 AD. Thor writes that in 1805, President Jefferson sent Army officer William Eaton with a contingent of Marines, Leathnecks, under Lieutenant Presley O’Bannon to attack Tripoli and put an end to Muslim pirating on the high seas—America’s very first military confrontation on foreign soil. Did Thomas Jefferson envision at that time a future threat to our nation from the Muslim world? I wonder.
Through the written word, Brad Thor guides us through a fleeting history of events that bring us to the defense of our nation today. I believe this is Brad Thor’s finest novel. I heartedly recommend, The Last Patriot. I rate the book a strong 5-star success.
I enjoyed it. To me, it was about 50% political discourse (I know some will say diatribe but I happen to agree with most of it so I will say discourse) and 50% adventure tale. There was a lot of food for thought on Thor's views of the Islam world, Islamophobia, and Islam influence in the U.S. and around the world.
I enjoyed the adventure tale also, with the asides about Thomas Jefferson, Cervantes, Barbary pirates, Tripoli, and Al-Jazari and his "Book of Knowledge of Ingenious Mechanical Devices."
Character development wasn't too deep, women in the story are really one-dimensional but these are both reasons I don't usually read this genre of book. Not unusual and a lot of people seem to like the books just this way.
I have bought Thor's newest book Full Black (Scott Harvath) so I will find out how it compares. Oh and I want a Caucasian Ovcharka dog.
The only distraction is that every reference to a watch, gun, rifle, knife, or tactical watercraft seems to be a product placement.
