I read and review a lot of books. I generally only read and review books I think I am going to like. This means that I often have four and sometimes five star reviews. That simply means I am winnowing out the ones that don’t grab me due to the fact there are so many good books out there. Hammerhead is a good example. This was an excellent book. I don’t get into style, grammar, punctuation or any of that drivel. I recommend a book based on whether I enjoyed it or not. I really enjoyed this book. A retired Marine pilot finds himself involved in political intrigue much to his dismay. Luckily his opponents underestimate the power of retirement.
The action is non-stop in this book. It truly is a page turner or swiper since it is on my Kindle. Bond created an immensely likeable main protagonist. Jeffrey is the sole survivor of a class of genetically enhanced pilots. He realistically suffers from survivor guilt. He is a big guy, enormously talented and has a heart to match. I liked the fact that Bond painted a consummate warrior with a caring nature.
Stacy is a future version of SEAL who provides a strong female protagonist. Those of you who read my reviews are well aware of my propensity for liking strong females, protagonist or not.
Leif is the son who always wondered if he measured up to his towering father. For Leif it is a coming of age story.
Tie all the flying action together with a messianic psychopath harboring a world domination obsession and you have a really fun read.
In addition to the enjoyment of the book, I am impressed with as of March 1st, 2012, Bond dedicated 25% of the profit from all sales of Hammerhead to support disabled U.S. veterans. (Read why)
I enjoyed the book and I recommend it.
