Reviews of Hawke

Overall customer rating: 4.167

A potboiler unworthy of the genre.

by cheathamg on Mar 7, 2014

There's nothing wrong with a book being a cheap thriller. It's like an action movie, you don't buy a ticket to be uplifted or edified. You read potboilers for the fun of it. Unfortunately, I didn't get much fun out of this. If you have a taste for such books, and one were to describe the book to you, it actually would sound very attractive. The protagonist is a handsome adventurer with lots of money who has a penchant for saving the world. Mr. Bell's writing skills however, are not up to carrying it off. His characters are caricatures. The plot is minimal and is buried in a morass of purple prose. The one good thing about the book is that it enabled me to brush up on my speed reading skills.

Writing was predictable, but was still entertaining. Would recommend to friends. Being a first writing, rough around the edges. Future writings should be smoother.

Great story! I've read "Pirate" & I'm reading "Spy" now w/ "Tsar" to follow.


a great first novel

This is a thriller and the first in a series of books that I hope goes on for a long time. We meet Lord Alex Hawke and his band of merry men. This series is set in current times and covers our worst nightmares of what terrorism could do. Alex Hawke is James Bond for the 21st. century. The characters are well developed and loveable. The plots, while fantastic, are believable. I highly recommend this book and those that follow in the series.
