Exciting from start to finish, I,Sniper has hero Bob Lee Swagger in great form. Amazingly, Stephen Hunter's almost 70 year old Bob Lee is still a vital and unforgettable character. (Think Clint Eastwood in "Gran Torino") Tough as nails, but honor and duty bound, he wades through the bad guys with little difficulty. Not even torture can keep him down. Great entertainment all around.

I'd certainly give the leftie who put this book down a quarter for his copy; in fact I'd give him the full asking price. Like every other Swagger book I couldn't put this one down. It was obvious who the bad guy was from almost the get go but it was enjoyable to witness his demise. Long live B. L. Swagger!

Along with a great plot, Hunter is extremely accurate when it comes to anything guns. I'm so tired of some idiot Liberal writing something stupid about guns because they haven't researched the subject, or simply hate guns. This author knows guns, and writes realistic TODAY kinds of plots that he has thoroughly researched. A real winner among all of his fine books. Liberal wimps will not enjoy Hunter's writings!!

I, Sniper is a good read. The plot moves right along without the wandering verbiage so many mystery writers seem to fall into. We don't need 30 pages of character building, thanks very much. Hunter provides the usual cast of characters, well done, good dialog. I would quibble that the plot is a re-run of one of his earlier novels (evil forces conspire to muddy the name of a hero and Swagger must defeat them) But it is so well done that it is worth the read. If you like Hunter, you'll like this book.

As a retired military member, 1966 to 1987, I have met my share of soldiers like Bob Lee. Those that volunteered for more than 1 tour in SEA did it for love of country. Sadly, their return to The World caused more pain for them than the war itself. Every one I know from that group is a patriot and a conservative. Hanoi Jane caused the death of 2 prisoners when notes they gave her for their families were given to a guard. It is reasonable to assume that Bob Lee is as conservative as I. I am a proud patriot. God Bless America.

I have read all of the Swagger novels and was anxious to read this one. It was a total disapointment. As a matter of fact, it bored me to death, and for the first time ever it put me to sleep. There was just to much description, which I could have lived without, and did not enhance the story at all. Sad to say this is the first Hunter novel that I just could not finish.

All of the Swagger navels have been entertaining, and the writer is very knowlegeble about firearms. In this book,the future of scope technologies is explored. It presents a solution to all of us long range shooters for range and windage compensation. Read it and enjoy!

I have now read all of the books in the Bob Lee Swagger Series. In this one, I particularly liked the old Viet Nam combat veteran getting the chance to feel admiration & love from the younger men now in the military.

Swagger is back! There are definite turning points in the book that will keep you reading late into the night or perhaps long past the start of your favorite TV episode. You will most likely enjoy how this book ends and perhaps even think of the Gunslinger (Dark Tower) series. It is difficult to fully appreciate this book without having read the entire Swagger series. Nonetheless, this may be the book that motivates you to mass purchase Stephen Hunter's earlier works and then quickly realize the cheer character development is plenty to keep you wanting more.

My first read by Stephen Hunter was Pale Horse Coming and it is a masterpiece but Sniper runs a close second on my favorites list. Stephen Hunter is an amazing artist with stories and words in Technicolor. I put him next to John Steinbeck.

A lot of detail, but as usual, Swagger is a fun read.
