    One thought on “Recoil”

    1. Just when you think he can't get any better McNab pulls out a masterpiece that is only eclipsed by his first novel. His gift is his ability to bring to life these very real world scenarios. With the James Bonds, Jack Reatchers, and Jason Bournes of this literary world everything is very much larger than life with super villians and Hollywood explosions. McNab pulls on his first hand SAS experience to tell stories about events that actually can and do happen.This time our hapless hero Nick Stone [...]

    2. nick stone is in zaire doing a job for the govt undercover which goes horribly wrong and leaves him with nightmaresforward 3 decades he is recuperating in switzerland he has met a girl who he is going to propose to but she goes missing and her father disowns him finding out she has gone to a dangerous place in the congo he calls on old favours to get him there and finds himself face to face with some of his old fighting mates plus a senior figure, standish, he wishes had never been born but what [...]

    3. My attention was drawn by the story about Nick's love interest leaving without telling him. But the detailed drama that unfolded in the Congo where the truth about how money rules and the lives of even children mean nothing other than a means to an end keep me turning the pages. There are those who are prepared to put their lives at risk for those that are being abused and Nick's new lady is one of them.

    4. I've read it before but started the whole series again to read in order. Just finished this and got to say, like the others before it, it's a fantastic read. So, now on to the next one in the series.

    5. "Nome in codice Dark Winter" in originale "Dark Winter" è un libro del 2003, romanzo di azione/spionistico di Andy McNab, che è uno scrittore e militare britannico, pseudonimo dietro il quale si nasconde un ex-sergente dello Special Air Service (i corpi speciali dell'esercito britannico), noto al grande pubblico come autore di romanzi di spionaggio. Questo romanzo è del 1997, e fa appunto parte della serie "Nick Stone": in particolare questo è il secondo romanzo della serie.L'autore è anche [...]

    6. solito grande McNab. Se volete una lettura impegnata leggetevi Dostoevskij. Se volete un thriller poliziesco leggetevi Deaver. Se volete azione pure a non finire c'è McNab! Qua c'è azione azione e azione fino alla fine, tanti informazioni di tattiche militari e stavolta qua si parla anche di cose serie, come le guerre in Congo e i bambini soldato, come vengono sfruttati e torturati. Grande realismo come al solito!

    7. Where does my smartphone get its juice?A bit racist, but I've read his memoirs so I was expecting that. Read this for research, for a story I want to write, having never been a soldier in my life. Good adventure story, but freaks me out about the nuggets (get it?) of truth behind a story about child soldiers and what in Angola we called garimpeiros. And now I feel incredibly guilty about typing this with my Google Nexus while I sit here in comfortable Western dialysis surrounded by the latest te [...]

    8. The book was not to my taste in so far too much in reality and could have been non fiction. It was written well and would be good read for those interested in gritty books.There was indepth description of death bombings and the use of children in the mines, fighting and re mercerneries There was regular use of swearing which added to realism and I hate to adamit it but I like to read to escape from reality and though love reading crime where hear about what people can do knowing that though peop [...]

    9. Another solid Nick Stone novel, but like the latter books in the series, it has a rather simple plot. However, the story is engaging and rich in the immersive details that make McNabs novels stand out. The setup for the story is based on Stone's relationship with the girl he meets up with in the previous novel, but this book can still be read out of sequence and not detract from the story.

    10. first of all d first person narration style of "i,me,myself" gets to youcond d plot of d story is good bt hasnt been done justice wido mch focus on weapons n too leas on d humane sidei didn lyk d writin style and d way d characr of d protagonistNickStone has been developd.a read which u can giv a miss as ill b doin to all andy mcnab books

    11. Enjoyed it, found it a bit different as Stone usually gets captured and tortured at some point and that never really happened in this book, a lot of the scenes reminded me of the genocide scenes from Hotel Rwanda - Just wish there was a glossary at the start to explain some of the more technical descriptions - Big fan of McNab and Chris Ryans books

    12. Andy McNab isn't quite the thriller you expect him to be. Having said that, with the personal experience he has, what we have at hand is more of an autobiography rather than a novel. Another of those slow reads, you should take up when you have nothing else to do. As the saying goes, all is well that ends well, the novel ends positively which does well in the favour of the book.

    13. Standard Nick Stone book, where Nick goes off too the jungle to rescue his girlfriend. Action packed fluff.Some interesting bits about the PRC and it's political instability. Also deals with the subject of child soldiers.

    14. This was a very short book, pretty exciting though but a lot less realistic than his previous ones. There were no insights into the tradecraft of a special forces operator and far too many coincidences but as an action novel it was pretty decent.

    15. A little too much emphasis on weapons, but I liked the setting of the conflict and the action. Also the reference to the LRA and Kony made me wonder if all the attention earlier this year did any good to put this guy out of power.

    16. Another good Nick Stone story. Detail of main battle a bit tedious, but overall just wanted to keep reading.

    17. struggling with it actually. Not as good as other mcnabs. I've actually stopped reading it. Not going to bother reading anymore Andy McNabs.

    18. Another great book. There Nick Stone stories continue to get better and better. I could not put this book down.

    19. Poor!! This was an old present I read as my kindle is out of action. I hated the writing style, and how basic the language in the book is. No depth to the plot, saw everything coming. Disappointing

    20. one of the unexpectedly optimistic and sweet Nick Stone books. the plot is simple, though as an intermission goes it is enjoyable read.
