I stalled at the halfway point of this. I think I'm 5-10 years too young for it. His pop culture ravings fall on my unappreciative ears.

I'm on page 800ish of 1000ish of

I like it. Some complain that it's just a long drugstore spy novel, and it may be. No obscure tech concepts, no life on other planets. Just lots of chasing, spying, shooting, and video game references.

I'm 26, so i could relate quite well to klostermans book. His commentaries on saved by the bell were especially true/hilarious.

American Sniper, an autobiography by a U.S. Navy Seal sniper. Got really good reviews.

The reviews I read were not that positive. It seems that the tone of the book is militaristic and simplifying. I have not yet read it - am hooked on other books at the moment. And I do not want to start an argument here, just what I heard on the radio and read on the 'net.

Interesting. I heard the opposite. Mind you, the reviews I heard were from the shooting community. I did hear that his writing isn't as polished as others, but that's to be expected from a Navy SEAL. I imagine the stories are fairly interesting, especially if you participate in the sport of precision shooting. Otherwise it probably isn't your thing. I imagine the reviews you heard/read weren't from shooters, so that's understandable.

^^^I used to read Clive all the time. Then he started to get other people to write under his name, and I stopped.

Does anyone wear an orange Doxa dive watch in those new books? Or was Dirk Pitt the only one?

This one is the second Issac Bell story. It took place in the late 1800's/turn of the century, no dive watches there.
