Divide and Conquer: Op-Center 07
Divide and Conquer: Op-Center 07
von Tom Clancy
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 6,29

3.0 von 5 Sternen Overall good book, not the best of the series., 27. Juni 2000
Although this book was very enjoyable to read, it lacked the character depth and highly tuned plot so looked foward to in the other books of the series-- I felt that I was reading a quickly thrown together storyline with only marginal thought given to the usually complex characters. As such, I can not recommend this book. Why spend money on a half thought?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly informative, 8. Juni 2000
What struck me most from reading this was the insight that it gave of the dramatic collapse of Nazi Germany. The author gives a very enduring and readable account of both the horror of living under facist rule and the waste of life that war brings. For these reasons you should read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Impossible not to enjoy!, 16. Mai 2000
I've read many nonfiction books on submarine exploits during WWII and can say without a doubt that this book of fiction has all the gripping suspense and realism of those others, plus a very compelling list of characters and a story that carries you through until the very end. The author did a very good job of building the story to a pleasing climax, as well as creating a novel with depth. Buy it and read it--you'll love it.


The Year 1000: What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium
The Year 1000: What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium
von Robert Lacey
  Gebundene Ausgabe

3.0 von 5 Sternen Dry, dull, 13. Mai 2000
Though the subject was interesting and new insights were provided, the book as a whole was dull and dry. The concept of showing everyday life on a seasonal basis could have been a complete joy to read, but unfortunately the authors seemed to think they were writing a Calculus book or other such thing of unenjoyment. As in the latter case, interesting facts get stale fast if not presented with some sort of readablility. Give me a work by Keegan or Ambrose anyday over this.


Timeline
Timeline
von Michael Crichton
  Gebundene Ausgabe

2.0 von 5 Sternen Like reading a script, minus the dialogue., 22. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Timeline (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Although the plot was interesting (even though it was merely a Jurasic Park), the writing, character development, etc. was lacking considerably. Why, oh why, couldn't Crichton have populated the story with three dimensional characters that one could enjoy following? All of the characters could easily have been replaced by Good Guy 1, Good Guy 2, Bad Guy 1, and Bad Guy 2, and NO harm would have come to the story--that's how underdeveloped they were! As for the writing, there are ways to begin dialogue other than to type He said, "..." And what about atmosphere, tangible descriptions, etc? In short, the book had a good concept but unfortunatey seemed to have been written merely as the forethought to a script.


Blind Man's Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage
Blind Man's Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage
von Sherry Sontag
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen It will make you appreciate the world as it is., 24. Februar 2000
What struck me about this book were the revelations of what was really going on during the Cold War. The USSR toppled when I was in High School and to see the friction that existed when I was a child is remarkable. If you think back to the 70s and 80s, the real struggle that existed can be lost. As for the book itself--it starts off somewhat slow, but turns into a gripping account that is a joy to read. To all the submariners who served: Thank You.


Rainbow Six (A Jack Ryan Novel, Band 9)
Rainbow Six (A Jack Ryan Novel, Band 9)
von Tom Clancy
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 6,90

5.0 von 5 Sternen 900 pages and totally enjoyable!, 8. Februar 2000
Though a bit long winded, the book was still enjoyable throughout. I never found myself wishing that it would end, in fact I'm unhappy now that it has. Clancy proves with this book that he is one of the best story tellers of our time. He used his usual form of many seemingly unconnected twists that in the end all came together and made perfect sense. That is why all 900 pages were fun to read. As for the plot, it was the BEST I've read this year.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good read, but sloppy details., 4. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Matarese Circle (Taschenbuch)
Although sloppy in the research department, the character development and plot make this a very enjoyable book to breeze through. I enjoyed every minute it took to finish.


Death's Men: Soldiers of the Great War (Penguin history)
Death's Men: Soldiers of the Great War (Penguin history)
von Denis Winter
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect book on soldiers of WWI., 25. Januar 2000
Death's Men gives a highly readable account of the British soldiers of WWI. The author used well placed first hand accounts along with his own well thought out views to give a very complete picture of the men who fought the war. Each chapter gives exacting insight into everything imaginable dealing with what the men encountered in their day to day. If you have any interest in the human side of WWI, this book will give you all the usable information to answer your questions.


Atlantis Found: A Dirk Pitt Adventure
Atlantis Found: A Dirk Pitt Adventure
von Clive Cussler
  Gebundene Ausgabe

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not his best., 20. Januar 2000
Let's start by saying that the plot and action are top notch Cussler. But...the author seems to have taken it for granted that most readers aren't first time readers to his books. As such he left out considerable character development. All the action in the world gets stale fast if the entire cast of characters are two demensional. By merely providing simple observations into who the characters really are makes all the difference. You see this at the end when the writing becomes much more enjoyable to follow (love involvment, change of relationships, etc.)
