Ninth Dragon based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
If you take a pretty good writer and ask him to write a really bad book, this is probably what you'd get. I picture the editors looking it over and saying, "Can we fit in just one more sex scene?" and "I think the bad guy needs to torture someone right about here", and "Wouldn't it be cool if the hero was dangling from a moving helicopter?"All those things happen, of course, but the general quality of the writing is extremely high, and there are sections that show the author has a lot of insight into Vietnamese culture. I'm not sure who E.B. Cross is, but I suspect he was slumming when he wrote this. Odd how few copies of this book there seem to be out there.
