Griffin Does It Again...

Having read almost all of Griffins series, the Honor series is closest to The Corps... Please bring back Cletus and Peter again and again...

Lacks Excitment

Compared to all of W. E. B. Griffin¿s published novels, I found his most recent effort, disappointing. Too much of Secret Honor, is concerned with the events surrounding the wedding of Clete Frade and Dorotea Mallin and the inconclusive efforts of the German government to identify the traitor responsible for the assassination of two senior SS officers which was described in the previous book. Secret Honor seems to be a transition between the author¿s last book set in Argentina, Blood and Honor, and his next intended volume in the Honor Bound series. We are introduced to a series of important historical figures including Count Claus von Stauffenberg, Evita Duarta and General Adolf Galland, each of whom one hopes will figure prominently in the author¿s intended sequel. We also are familiarized with one of Germany¿s most important secret weapons of World War II, the ME-262 jet fighter aircraft. Except for target practice, only one shot is fired in this book by or at any of the main characters. But many important events occurred the period covered, April through June 1943, including: the fall of North Africa to the Americans and English, Allied preparations to invade Sicily, the first Warsaw Ghetto uprising, the siege of Leningrad, preparations leading to the Battle at Kursk (the largest tank conflict in history), the introduction of escort carriers and advanced radar in the battle against U-boats in the Atlantic, and MacArthur¿s attack up coast of New Guinea. I hope that W.E.B. Griffin¿s next effort is more exciting.

    This series is turning into a soap opera

    I have read every one of Mr.Griffin's novels and enjoyed them a great deal. But this last series seems to be getting less and less like all his other work. I wish he would concentrate on his other series like The Corps or The Badge Of Honor Or Men At War groups

    Inferior GRIFFIN offering

    I have been a rabid fan of Mr. Griffin's prior series', having read all of his books twice. I find the 'Men at War' books have far less interest for me. His descriptions of characters have always been vivid but those from other countries have little appeal for me. I hope for the resumption of the 'Badge of Honor' and 'The Corps series'.

    DROP THE HONOR SERIES

    THE ZING IN GRIFFINS LATEST HONOR SERIES IS GONE. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM GO BACK TO THE CORPS SERIES AND CONTINUE WHERE HE LEFT OFF WITH GETTING GOLD AND WEAPONS INTO THE PHILLIPINES. THIS SERIES IS 5 STAR AND SHOULD BE CONTINUED...I OWN EVERY ONE....

    this is the fourth of this series that i have read

    i have just finished books #2,3,4,5 in this honor bound series and i enjoyed #5, which was my first one read and the first of griffin's books.
    overall i have to say i am not overly impressed with griffin's writing----a lot of verbage but nothing really of content or purpose----rather childish writing style saying over and over frade corp of u.s marines etc.,etc.,etc. over and over. his time frames in several situations are off ----graham in argentina, then in mexico city, then in washington---all in less than 24 hours---i refer to where he is at the wedding and the next morning he is in washington---come-on!!!! i am hoping there will be a #6 to see if his style has improved any.
