    Sequel to the Movie, not the book

    I had just read the Guns of Navarone and enjoyed it so I bought this sequel. I was astonished when it opened with some characters missing, and one having had a sex change. Of course, MacLean had written this as a sequel to the movie, accepting the changes the screenwriters had made. Beyond that, it was a muddy story with a weak plot.

    A stronger plot would have helped cover some of the shortcomings

    A stronger plot would have helped cover some of the shortcomings, but the weak characters and suspense that doesn't pay off really drag this story down. I really felt that the author didn't put much thought into the story or characters. This book reads like a bad action movie where a ho-hum plot leads up to a somewhat entertaining, if cliched, ending. When they get to the point of the mission we see some of the strong narrative and attention to detail that made Guns so engrossing. It's just not enough to make this a recommended read. What made the first book so good was the well-drawn characters, the near-impossible mission and the mystique of the Guns of Navarone. None of these elements were close to being recaptured in this book.

    There was too much drama and not enough story for this to be an enjoyable read. Much of the book reads like a parlor game as Mallory's team outwitts their German "hosts." Also, several members of the team (as well as the reader) are kept in the dark as to certain aspects of the mission. This false suspense added more confusion than interest and couldn't cover the thin storyline. The often-muddled story would have made more sense--and lost nothing--had the reader been fully informed.

    All the needless and over-the-top bickering between the characters becomes tiresome after the first few chapters. This group seemed more like a pack of unruly teenagers than a carefully assembled team charged with carrying out a critical military mission. I was also disappointed that the characters from the first book all underwent a personality change making them not particularly interesting or likable. Mallory and Miller (my favorite character from the first book) had their moments, but Andrea was a shadow of his former self.
