How does a dead guy write a book????
Final Blackout is the type of novel that you end up thinking about long after youve read it. Hubbard has masterfully painted a tale of an extremely intelligent and well-versed strategiest known as the Lieutenant as he leads his men through the mucky, shelled atmosphere of a war-raped Europe. The most interesting aspect of the novel is the main character, the Lieutenant himself. A brave man with a hazy past and a sixth sense for war, the LT. has managed to keep his men together and as a result, they have formed what some may call a 'religous following.' Although the LT. is a static character thruought the story, everything he does is so calculated and precise and done only in the best interests of his men, and hence the LT. never bores the reader- especially when he makes twists and turns in his strategies. After reading this novel several times, i feel as though the LT. is someone i will forever compare myself to, as he is the most honorable man i have ever known of. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who is in search of a war novel or a new, daring role model.
Final Blackout is a hard-hitting novel staged in 1975 London, England. It is a story of a world torn by 30 years of war. Final Blackout is a story that revolves around a cunning leader, The Lieutenant, who through strategic moves and cunning tactics, captures the heart and loyalty of his soldiers. These soldiers are hardened cunning men themselves. These soldiers survived all of these years unharmed, when millions have died for no apparent cause other than for the pride of statesmen. The novel Final Blackout is a science fiction novel that shows the condition of the world if politicians¿ and statesman¿s pride ruled. The only thing that I have to complain about this book is that if you do not have any military experience, the book may become tricky to understand, so, read the first half carefully. Other science fiction books by L. Ron Hubbard include Dianetics, Battlefield Earth, Great Black Heroes, and A Piece of Blue Sky
