Still keeping my interest

The series is good, fast paced and interesting. I question the 2 -3 pages dedicated to the girlfriend and hope that is remedied in the next book. I shall, for the time being, only purchase used books as the publishers have set on the path of greed with e-books priced higher that hardbacks. "Way to stick it to the loyal base!" We are not stupid and realize the cost of an ebook is no where near the cost of a hardback, or for that matter a paperback version. So hold off buying until you see e-books back in the $4 - $5 range. We can make a difference.

Extremely Disappointed

I have read WEB Griffin for years. With each passing series the books are duller and duller. His orginal series were fantasic. I like the characters and their inter-action. But this book drags and drags.

It is not the writing that I first loved to get my hands on....

It is not the writing that I first loved to get my hands on. If WEB is not doing the writing himself, he should be. Or he should be paying more attention to what his ghost writers are putting out.

If this is the best that the brand can come up with, then it is time to retire and never write again.

    Four Books

    In the last month I have read 4 of Mr. Griffin's books. When I saw The Shooters I was a bit relieved to see that it wasn't as thick as the others. But darn if it wasn't still filled with so much needless detail that I was able to skip over many pages. But there's a reason I read these books, and will probably read more. Griffin can tell a good story when he gets down to it, and when he gets into some of the poltical and military intrigue it can be pretty fascinating. But to set a scene I don't need to know, for example, where every person in the room was standing. The many tidbits of historical trivia just go on and on, and boy did I want to shoot that dog.

    No Significant Changes

    I've read almost everything Griffin has published. Unfortunately, although he has been trying to make his work a bit more current in the Presidential Agent series, there is one consistent theme within his writing: the rich are apparently the ones who make the really important contributions in the effort to combat the enemy, whoever that may be. Even in his Corps series, McCoy has more than enough money to do whatever he desires without having to rely upon his pay. How about the rest of the military or police who aren't independently weaalthy? Is the implication that only the rich make significant contributions? As a military veteran of over 36 years, starting at the lowest enlisted rank and working my way up, I find his writing, while entertaining, skewed toward wealth as the manner in which things are accomplished. I never went into the military to get rich 'and didn't, though I'm quite satisfied with my lifestyle' and rather resent the implication that you have to be ridiculously wealthy in order to be successful as a patriot. Perhaps his next series will be more in line with real life.

    GREAT READ!

    On the cover it states "Great Read Guaranteed". That is absolutly TRUE. What the cover does'nt tell you is how far in the book you'll meet The Shooters! I did enjoy this book, and this is my first Griffin book. But boy did it go on and on. So many characters, so many memories of past missions and past relationships. I don't know if I'd read another Griffin book, however, I do have The Hunters on audio. (It was on sale) Maybe I'll stick with Sanford, Silva, Berry, Folsom, etc.
