"RIVET-COUNTER" ALARM [SCANNING]VOLCBAT
Future Hamok Pilot
One of the very best book series available
R.R. Martin "A Song of Ice and Fire"
I wasn't a fan of McNab's fiction stuff personally. All of his non-fiction is worth reading though. If I remember rightly I found Immediate Action to be quite similar to Seven Troop, but I could be wrong.
Seven Troop was my favourite, closely followed by the ubiquitous Bravo-Two-Zero.
Due to the higher authenticity I also rather tend towards the "non-fiction" corner.
I also like how B20 can be transferred to OA ^^
I guess I'll give it a read then.
Fahrenheit 451 is great. Also Jesse Venturas "American Conspiracies" was interesting and if you really wanna Delve into the dirty deeds "63 Documents the Government doesn't want you to read". Also Tom Clancy books are a great read. I know some people who say that for him to just be writing Fiction he knows too much and gets really close to home when you cut some things out of his stories. And theres always where the red fern grows,Old yeller and whatnot.
Well worth a read is "This Game of Ghosts" By Joe Simpson who also wrote "Touching the Void."
Any one who has lived in such an environment will recognise the often matter of fact and sudden mortality it describes. It is amazing how quickly the names and circumstances you can tick off on your fingers stack up, so that nothing is left just the tick on the finger and a dimly remembered expression or the sound of a voice.
The book is honest about the reality.

Dragonseed was the 1st book by Pearl S. Buck i read, very catchy, and imho everyone can learn something from her books.
Following i read East Wind:West Wind & The Good Earth which also were truly worthwile and recommendable.

Books always surpass their hearsay counterparts
