20 years ago this story would be nice. Nowadays its to much invention, bare of realistic scenarios and facts. It seems the author sees himself as one of the main persons, smart, good looking and rich.

The scenarios used in this story are lacking knowledge of so called black ops.

The story and its outcome is too obvious.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The end of the series 3. Januar 2009
Von Michael T Kennedy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is the last of the Presidential Agent series which began with the story of the hijacked airliner. It starts slowly and I think Griffin may not have written the first few chapters. About a quarter of the way in, when I was getting impatient with all the exposition of back story and the rather wooden character development, the pace picks up and it seems Griffin is back. I suspect his son may have done the early chapters. If you are familiar with the other books of the series, skim those early chapters. The writing picks up and the plot gets going when Russian SVR agents contact Castillo and tell him he is set up for assassination. From that point on, we are back with the WEB Griffin skills in plot and character development that have kept us reading his novels for 25 years.

The plot pulls together all the seemingly unconnected threads of the other stories and explains the various characters and their relationships. Griffin is teaching us more Russian history, including the current Russian leadership about which he has strong opinions. I don't know how accurate his information is, for example he has another theory about Ivan the Terrible than I have read, but he has been right before. He has sources of information that don't write books. Anyway, after a slow start (for which I subtract one star), the novel gets going and is a great example of Griffin's story telling.

The ending, which others have complained about, actually opens a new chapter and may promise more books with Charley Castillo and his band of warriors. I had actually wondered how Griffin was going to handle the changes in Washington. The President in the series is obviously Bush and the other cabinet officers are recognizable. That will change so a Presidential Agent may now become the agent of the shadowy group of patriots that appears at the end. This novel also introduces what may be the real romance in Charlie's life and I can see more books with this theme, as well.

I recommend it for those who have read the other books in the series and, as far as I am concerned, Griffin hasn't lost his touch. Alexander Dumas had a writing team that composed large sections of his novels. Those novels have stood the test of time and these will too.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Only stuck with it out of loyalty to the series. 19. Januar 2009
Von Jason Gibson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I really was a big fan of this series but the fifth and assumed final book is in my opinion a disappointment as a read. I was grabbed by the novels early on and the action and intrigue but I felt this version was pure boredom and just a recap of most of the things that I'd read in the previous novels. At one point I kind of cared about Castillo as a character and was willing to suspend the fantasy of his lifetime because the variety of circumstances in life seemed to help the story but even the protagonist became a just another of the lame tired group of characters, all constatly cracking wise, all the best at what they do but not appreciated by the system and all miraculously able to outwit the other 6 billion people on the planet trying to stop them. This book probably could've been condensed down to 100 pages easily without losing anything of value from the story to those of us that have been along since the start--was it necessary for Castillo to give Dick Miller the back story at one point? Did Miller (Castillo's sidekick from go) suddenly forget all that had happened in the previous 6 months? Castillo finally finds the woman of his dreams but I never took the bait as there'd been other woman of his dreams that appeared and disappeared suddenly in the past. Honestly about the only part of the book that I felt was compelling was Castillo's son finding out the truth but even that was done away with quickly so we could get back to the formula of Delchamps calling Charlie "Ace", somebody new being brought into the circle of hundreds that are given full disclosure of the Top Secret Presidential finding, and Charlie trying to squeeze in saving the world when he isn't having sex.

Loyalty to the series which really had moments of enjoyment give it two stars but I'm not sure it deserves more than one.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Awful!! 5. Januar 2010
Von K. Ferriter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read all of the books in this series. They have been entertaining. I simply can't explain this one. It is absolutely awful. There is no action in the book. Most of the pages are devoted to conversations or back story. That wouldn't be so bad, but, the writing was that of an adolescent boy. It was full of attempts at sex scenes that could have only been written by a 14 year old. It was full of repetitive jokes from the same 14 year old. The plot was non-existent. What little plot that was there didn't make any sense and didn't have any suspense. This was one of the worst books that I ever read. I unfortunately finish the books that I start. I'm always hopeful that it will come around. This one never did. It only got worse. After having read multiple books by WEB Griffin, I can only assume this wasn't written by him at all. He simply put his name on the cover and accepted a check.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Presidential Agent - jumped the shark? 1. Januar 2009
Von M. Lavigne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First off, I've read every book W.E.B. Griffin has written - all of the series books, anyway - and I always anxiously anticipate the release of the latest installments.

However, if you notice, most of them follow the same formula. The protagonist is filthy rich, or associates with those who are. They are all officers, or ultimately end up that way, relegating the "enlisted men" to supporting cast members, or comic relief.

Even with this in mind, I enjoy his writing style, even if his perspective on military service (even the stories set in the modern era) are quite dated.

I've enjoyed this series so far, even if the last book felt like one long lead-in - and until the final 20 pages, this book was headed up that path.

But - without giving the ending away, of course - this installment will be my last. I feel like it really "jumped the shark," moving from something that might be plausible with a small suspension of belief to something completely crazy. Not giving away details, but any fan of this series may be disappointed with the ending, as it takes away some of the charm of our lead character.

Too bad... I guess I'll have to pine away for "Brotherhood of War" to continue someday. Here's hoping the Philadelphia police series continues better than this. By the way, did anyone notice that the last Badge of Honor book jumped 30 years in reality in the space of one book?

2.0 von 5 Sternen Better written than his last couple, but not great, and with military mistakes 1. Februar 2009
Von Garyius - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was better written than his last couple, but not great. There are significant accuracy issues.

The book started slowly and in a different tone than Griffin usually uses. The writing overall was tighter, and the recaps from past books that he usually engages in were tighter and more on point.

Glaring were mistakes that Griffin shouldn't have made, and a decent editor should have caught. Examples: a Marine is classed as a 'clerk typist', an MOS that hasn't existed for 20 years. Five minutes google time would have provided the correct job title.

An even worse example is that the book is set in 2005, and a characater is described as having been a Marine DM on the march up in the Iraq war. He then described as being too young to vote. The Corps does allow enlistment at 17, but three months boot, ITR, and DM school would have taken at least six months pre war. Assuming the character turned 17 the day he left for boot camp, he still would have been 19 in 2005.

There were lots of other mistakes that were almost as bad to anyone with some military or international travel time. Just really poor research and fact checking.

The ending also was a real letdown. Griffin decided to trash the framework he built while still letting himself have a chance to keep the characters in future novels. He appears to have made the choice in the last month before the draft was due, because he does all that in the most summary and frankly cheesest way he could in the last chapter.

I started reading his books with his first well done novels, and even his youth fiction under his real name. His last 8 or so books have gotten worse and worse. This one was better written, but I suspect it was partly ghostwritten which has cost him his usual rightness about military subjects.

Griffin has always done some things wrong--most of his characters are military boy scout types who get to break the mold of behavior and most of his women are virgins waiting to be whores when said boy scout appears. But he has always captured the life of a military person or unit, and when his heros violate those norms he has a reason why that is possible even if very unlikely. That is gone in this book.

I don't know if I will keep reading. He is getting away from his military accuracy, which is what he has going for him.
