    "Somewhat of a dark read that I wouldn't traditionally say fits the action adventure style. The Stalin Epigram may certainly be more thriller and spy style."

    "The Lord of the Rings does not really belong on a list of best action adventure novels. Robin Hobb is a much better author than J.R.R. Tolkien. It would be nice to see something of Hobb's on such a list."

    "If you’re into this type of genre, you’ll definitely enjoy this novel. I can respect the fact that it’s well-written, but I just found it to be a boring read overall. I had a hard time connecting with characters, and the plot seemed very generic. Again, I’m not the biggest fan of this type of book, but I can say that this is a very subjective feeling."

    "I love genre stories that transcend their genre and present a deeper significance to the unfolding events and this is certainly one of those. The story covers not just some significant geographical ground (from Mexico to San Diego and Los Angeles to San Francisco, New Mexico and even cross country to Washington D.C.) but also political and philosophical. We get to see how laws enacted (or not enacted) in D.C. get to play out on the street and how they impact and in some cases impair the local law enforcement's ability to deal with local crime. However, as this story so deftly shows, crime is not so local, after all, especially when they occur in high places like the U.S. Senate, which this author shows is undeniably plausible. I loved the character of Mike McBride, is there anything this guy cannot do? Although I wonder where he goes from here having been seriously promoted. At least, for his sake, I'm hoping it's a promotion that he's going to be happy with (although, knowing him, I seriously doubt it). What happens next, I wonder? "

The movie was able to show everything that the book stated which is rare from any director. Don't worry if you're not an avid reader because this movie was able to explain inside material that even your 6 year old daughter can understand (not to suggest that I let my 6 year old daughter watch a rated R movie...). Get ready for an exciting, action-packed movie that is meant to blow your socks off!"

    "While not as good as some of the other books from the Courtney series, Rage still holds up to the high levels that we now hold Wilbur Smith too. Taking place in Africa, the writing is strong, the scenes well described, and the native peoples are not stereotyped and cliched like you may expect."
