Review

“The poet laureate of the American military.”



“A storyteller in the grand tradition.”




“Techno-thriller fans will relish the detailed descriptions of weapons and aircraft.”




“W.E.B. Griffin is the best chronicler of the U.S. military ever to put pen to paper—and rates among the best storytellers in any genre.”

I've been a W.E.B. Griffin fan for almost a decade now, which means I've been waiting impatiently for quite a while for each new release in each and every series that Griffin has written. Unfortunately, I've found a few of his recent novels a bit lacking compared to his previous works. In particular, I found it painful to read through his previously recent book "The Outlaws" (Dec. 2010) which I gave 2 stars. I know that sentiment is shared by other Griffan fans and is also reflected by the average 2.5 star Amazon ratings of his recent books versus 3.5-4+ ratings of older works (out of 75+ reviews per book).

I'm glad to say that this book is a definite improvement on some of his lower quality recent works! It's not one of his best, but for me, it was definitely an acceptable and fun read.

This book flows smoothly from start to finish. I was originally going to wait, but ended up purchasing an electronic version of the book on a whim a bit past midnight. A few hours - and one book - later, I finally looked up from my reader to see the first signs of daylight appear outside my window.

---

PROS:

--- Flows well. - While reading it, I don't have an urge to skip entire parts. The writing flows smoothly and makes you interested in wanting to turn each page as quickly as possible so you can find out what's next. For me, "The Outlaws" was a book that didn't flow well and which I wanted to skip whole sections, only to force myself to read it hoping that it would get better (hint: it didn't). That thankfully was not a problem with this book.

CONS:

--- Limited / Tightly Focused Story - The story and plot is a lot more focused compared to previous books in this series.

I have been reading Griffin novels since "The Lieutenants" was released some 25 years ago. He is above all, a superb storyteller. The best things about Griffin's novels are plot and character development. Unfortunately, at times, reading his books becomes more than a bit tedious because of his tendency to go into excruciating detail about what transpired in previous novels in a series. Griffin, like most popular authors, has an established following of readers. The majority of people who buy his books have read his prior books and this repetition of what has gone before is unnecessary, condescending and very boring. It is disruptive to the reader because it interrupts the smooth flow of the storyline in the current book. I find myself skipping pages just to get to something that I have not read multiple times before. A sentence or two, if necessary to refresh the reader's recollection of the character and context in the storyline, would be more than sufficient. If the reader was, in fact, new to Griffin; this approach would encourage him to go back and read the prior books in the series (helping overall sales). Griffin does a good job of creating some interesting characters (though some are more caricature than character) and weaving them into storyline based upon historical facts. He does this in some detail. The five (5) prior Honor Bound books in the series cover a time period of slightly more than one year, October 1, 1942 through October 17, 1943 in some 2,500 pages. The fifth novel in the series ends with the main character, Cletus Howell Frade, standing on a dirt road with a Thompson submachine gun having just assisted in putting down and incipient revolution.Read more ›

Being a complete W.E.B. Griffen fan, I was really looking forward to this latest in the series. Unfortunately, the book is a fairly big disappointment.

You might as well just skip the first 100 pages - nothing there but a re-hash of all of the things we learned in past books. After 100 or so pages, the plot and action start to pick up a bit, but it still felt as though it was trying to stretch a chapter into a full book.

There are a couple hundred pages that cover a time span of just a few days, almost no information about what is happening in Argentina, and no information about most of the characters that made up the first books. Finally, in the last few pages, we are introduced (momemtarily) to Cletus and Dorotea's children and Dorotea has about 5 lines of dialogue.

Buy it if you feel compelled to, but it feels to me to be a waste of money. Hopefully, the next one will be a compleat book.

While I've enjoyed W.E.B. Griffin's many tales in the past, more recent books including this one fall short of my expectations. There are too many story lines in these recent tales that promise adventure to follow, but go no-where. At some point I will no longer purchase these books.

This book was a huge disappointment!! I have read everything written by WEB Griffin, and many of them twice.. I had been counting the days until this was released on Kindle, read it in one day, and wondered if they had sent me the entire book.. Cletus Frade's plummeting into being an arrogant Lt. Colonel was beneath him.. There was no climax, no conclusion and we were left hanging at the end (?) of the read.. If there is another in this series, I will think twice before ordering it... I just the next in the "Presidential Agent" series will not be a flop like this...
