    What a joke...

    My first introduction to Dale Brown was when I picked up a copy of 'Warrior Class' thinking that it might be a decent book. But once I finished it I was astonished at how incredibly horrible the novel was. A crazy billionaire conquering half the Balkan states so he can build a pipeline? A hippy 3rd party President? And super-advanced planes and armor that wont exist for two decades? Please! 'Wings of Fire' just ups the anty. Starting with the unbelieveable and unrealistic assassination of the Egyptian President and the near assassination of his shockingly beutiful American wife who just happened to serve in the Air Force years back. This whole plot was cooked up by the nutty Libyan King who managed to oust our old pal the Colonel Qadafi and an Egyptian Supreme Court justice. Oh, and guess whose funding this odd couple? None other than Pavel Kazakov! Back after striking a deal with Interpol and turning over all his crime buddies. Next a lone B-52 (called an AL-52) with a laser strapped onto the nose flies over Libya and shoots down a buncha SAM's and even a MiG-29, wow. Then we find out that Kevin Martindale the former President is leading a top-secret mercenary force with weapons and technology that wont exist for probably thirty years. This group called 'Night Stalker' (so original) includes Patrick McLanahan, his little bro, his wife, and his entire crew who just happend to end up taking an entire frigate captive with only 50 people. Then Jon Masters (CEO of Sky Master Inc.) merges with another company and the whole merger his negotiated by...a 9 year old little girl who just happens to be a supergenius and the worlds leading expert on lasers and quantum mechanics! Jon and his little partner 9 year old Kelsey rig up a laser with a 10000 gigawat output. Then there are the numerous time and event discrepencies that occur in the book. I wont even continue because it is becoming physically painfull for me to recount the horrors of Dale Browns novel. The book is just a downward spiral from front page to the epilogue, enough said. From 9 year old little girl supergeniusus to the crazy wife of an assassinated Egyptian President to unbelieveable military weapons Dale Browns book 'Wings of Fire' is sure to give you a headache.
