    I ve read a couple of Chris Ryan books before this one, including the first in the Geordie Sharp series Because of this, I actually feel like I ve read Zero Option before Certain scenes are even lifted from other books from this author, with just a couple of minor alterations.In Zero Option, Sharp s four year old son and pregnant girlfriend are kidnapped by the IRA and they later use this leverage to make Sharp assassinate the British Prime Minister If you re son daughter pregnant wife girlfriend got kidnapped you d be absolutely distraught and wouldn t be able to function beyond the bare basics However, Sharp goes on an SAS mission to the Middle East The author explains it away by saying that Sharp s commanders wouldn t give him an option and that Sharp himself thinks it could end up being a good idea because it ll take his mind off things It s completely unbelievable He s so completely nonchalant, you d think his cat had died.I also felt no sense of desperation about him getting his family back It could ve been just any other mission You can t really explain it by saying that that s the way Sharp is approaching it, so he keeps things professional, because you don t get that sense and surely you wouldn t be able to when it is so personal.The book is perfectly readable, but don t expect too much believability The star rating is simply for it s readability.

    The second in Chris Ryan s Geordie Sharp series takes a little while to get started for real There s a ton of exposition, tying up the strands from the end of Stand By, Stand By Lots of dialogue and an encounter with a sex crazed female employee don t really go anywhere the latter element seems to have been included purely for the purpose of titillating the reader However, once the action moves to Libya, and the boys go in on a gung ho adventure, riding Quad bikes across the desert, things pick up and Ryan is once in his element Accounts of the various operations and procedures are painstakingly detailed and really get the adrenaline pumping, with highlights including the super rifle assassination at the end and the hit on the armoured prison van Ryan s prose is chock full of expletives and machismo, which is fine for this reader, and the action scenes are expertly staged If there are any criticisms, it s that Ryan s plotline is sometimes contrived, bordering on the point of ludicrous, and there are one too many coincidences in the plot for it to ring 100% true Favourite bit It s gotta be the joyriders, who end up biting off than they can chew

    One of my favourite books of all time Carried on from the last book brilliantly I was dissapointed with the next book in the series but I haven t finsihed the Geordie Sharp series yet so I may be a bit forthcoming with my complaints.Definately read Series starts with Stand by, Stand by.

    Bringing the facts of the unseen armed forcesI ve given the story 5 star rating as I can relate to a story so similar, also how the story keeps on track giving a day by day coverage of how many persons are vulnerable, to anyone if certain information is available no matter how safe you think your family is how much you would do to save your family If you found yourself in a position were you where forced to save your family I really enjoyed the story from start to finish Chris Ryan has researched for a good while to get all the facts necessary to bring together a captivating story.

    It is great that it makes me do a bit research about Nothern Ireland relations with the UK The IRA PIRA Gulf War It requires me to always check the dictionary to read this book as it uses British slang words Overall, it s interesting.

    Barely plausible plot, a series of vignettes than a cohesive story What I liked best was the operational detail and ending that is realistic than usual Bottom line it was worth my time and appealing enough that I will be reading at least one book by Chris Ryan.

    s okay Far fetched The action is good, but the inconsistencies in the main character are a distraction.
