Mehr über den Autor

1990 bewarb sich Vince Flynn, geboren 1966 in Minnesota, beim United States Marine Corps - er wollte Kampfflieger werden. Kurz vor Beginn der Officers Canditate School wurde er allerdings aus medizinischen Gründen ausgemustert. Während der nächsten zwei Jahre bemühte er sich, diese Entscheidung rückgängig zu machen. Gleichzeitig dachte er zum ersten Mal daran, ein Buch zu schreiben - obwohl bei ihm bereits in der Grundschule Dyslexie festgestellt worden war. In den folgenden Jahren schrieb Vince Flynn tagsüber und arbeitete nachts als Barmann. Der Erfolg ließ nicht lange auf sich warten: Seit Ende der 90er-Jahre sind seine Politthriller regelmäßig auf den Bestenlisten zu finden. Seit 2005 ist er auch als Berater der TV-Serie "24" tätig.

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

Richard Marcinkobest-selling author of the "Rogue Warrior(R)" series"Term Limits" is a four-star, in-your-face, butt-kicking, bull's eye of a political thriller, unlike anything I've ever read! Vince Flynn's debut is fast-paced and unforgettable. Tom Clancy, watch your back!

Synopsis

Three of Washington's most powerful and least scrupulous politicians are executed with surgical precision by a team of military commandos demanding that the government restore power to the people, and only one congressman can stop them.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The author assured me while autographing the book that if a person enjoyed novels on politics and the accompanying intrigue that I would find this one to rate right up there with Clancy. I thought this to be awful confident for a literary unknown, but after finishing it by staying up until the wee hours of the morning I found this unknown to be right and am patiently waiting for the next novel. The story itself is entirely plausible considering the current political situation in this country
The scary part is that it shows how such things could easily be accomplished. Change names, a few titles here and there to match todays politics to the story line and there you have it, Term Limits. Is this Alternative History ? A novel and author people can learn from.

Click on over to any of his books and that term's all over "customer reviews". But he's chump change in that respect alongside this Flynn dude. Look at the blurbs from book reviewers on the inside cover of this book and it's "Clancy look back--someone's gaining on you". The difference is that Jack Ryan & co. come across as ADULTS rather than overgrown adolescents. This story starts with commando-style hits on a congressman and two senators. But everyone from the press to the White House to the freshman congressman who's Our Hero is saying "They deserved to die". It struck me along about the third repetition that if this were a movie, I'd be lip-synching the remark and annoying other viewers. And you will notice that there are no positive minority characters here--none whatever. Instead, what we get is a slighting reference to a black congresswoman by one character--he thinks all she does is obsess on political correctness and look for racists around every corner, plus the fact that one of the commandoes makes himself up to LOOK black. In fact, with few exceptions, the book is "Eire-o-centric" to the point of aw-come-on. I know that as a "Kraut-Mick" myself it isn't supposed to bother me, but it really grates on me. The whole message here is that elected officials are all self-serving and don't belong in office, but if you carry that too far, it verges on disrespect for the voter. I mean hell-oooo? Real people voted for this "shadow government". Real Americans. In the real world, I myself voted for two senators and one congressman. It's getting to the point where "unworthiness for office " simply means "my party's guy should've won". Yeah yeah yeah, it's trendy to talk that way nowadays. But so are the Spice Girls.

The only problem with the premise of the book:
It should have been members of the dynastic financial families, the Yale crowd, and the quasi-governmental think-tanks, who collectively own and direct our elected "representatives". Never doubt the ability of this crowd to infilitrate and compromise to their own benefit, to turn all things to their advantage from their position of oligarchical control of the media, finance, and industry. In the scenario given in the book, you can rest assured that the unwritten chapter at the end would show that they and theirs managed to step to the fore of whatever direction society was perceived to be leaning, (as they ALWAYS HAVE AND ALWAYS WILL) and quietly killed the revolution, replacing unactualized ideals with rhetoric, then buzzwords, then fashion, music, and consumer products. It (the revolution) would have been dead and in the ground for years before the "real" participants even realized what had happened.
The death of even a single member of certain families would have the impact of those of a dozen elected puppets, a hundred, hell, all of them put together.
I'm not advocating anything, just pointing out that the scenario is out of touch with reality. Belief in this fairy tale is only one step away from believing the fantasy of being able to "fix" this country at the ballot box. In the book's version of the underlying (non-)reality, the bullet becomes the "No" vote which we currently don't have, but it's still the ballot box, and as such is evidence of ignorance of the true shape of things.

Von Ein Kunde am 27. Juli 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I was enthralled wiht the topic and liked the cover and the beginning of the book was fine. It dragged a bit in the middle, but the plot was interesting enough. As expected, as things (apparently) began to wrap up toward the end, there were some interesting twists, BUT (and this is totally weird) the book didn't really resolve the initial conflict laid out at the beginning. There was no outcome!
The plot starts like this: basically some ex-SEALs, funded by a rich guy, begin to take out some congressmen and submit a demand for the politicians to set partisan bickering and special interests aside and balance the budget immediately. Congress is right at the voting stage of the budget and locked in wrangling with the White House, and these "terrorists" are initially ignored, and so goes the intrigue and the plot thickens.
Well, without wasting my and your time, the end of the book does nothing to resolve this issue!! I was stupified. It didn't even leave us with a sense of what happens to most of the main characters in the book. Weird. Very weird.
Well, there was more to read after the book ended. There was an excerpt from Transfer of Power to supposedly whet the appetite for more. Surely, I thought, this next book would be the sequel. I am not terribly thrilled by sequels, but if that is the way they want to do it, OK. But guess what? Transfer of Power is a whole 'nuther story! New Presidential administration and everything. NOTHING to indicate that the most important question of Term Limits will get resolved!!!!
