Red Dragon Rising: part 2 21 janvier 2011

I really enjoyed the first book to this series and was really excited for the second installment of this four-book series. There wasn't as much action as I would expect from a book involving a Chinese invasion of Vietnam, and the US's covert involvement. There wasn't even very much international diplomacy, political intrigue, or policy-making that would also be interesting to read. There was instead a small, hackneyed espionage/action plot. But it was still a good read and I assumed the bigger-picture stuff would come in the next book.

Unfortunately, my enthusiasm quickly died out as I reached about a quarter of the way through and realized this was going to be the same exact freaking story as the first book. Exactly the same. The same cast of characters, and some new ones, continuing to try to get the same scientist out of the same country for witnessing the same Chinese war crimes from the first book. And, again, their pursued by the same Chinese Special Forces soldier, whose also an extremely spiritual monk (and a cool character). Except this time, instead of the Chinese chasing them through the jungles, they're running around Hanoi most of the time.

The early promos for this series portrayed it as a large-scale techno-thriller, akin to Red Phoenix and Red Storm Rising, about a near-future war with China that would spread to encompass India/Pakistan and the Korean Peninsula. Sounds good, right? Definitely. This genre hasn't had a big, epic story like this in about twenty years. And it's something Larry Bond does well. But when you're halfway through this series/story, and still reading about the same small cast of characters trying to get out of Vietnam with no hint of bigger things to come and with little combat in this war, well it doesn't exactly bode well for the last half.

I'll still buy the next book in hopes, which seem unlikely at this point, that the story is finally getting closer to the dogfights and naval battles and ground combat and nuclear weapons that a series marketed as a global war against China would surely have to include. Hopefully the series will redeem itself, because there's lot of potential here for a great series.

I just really wish Larry Bond had just taken all these scenarios and characters and written another giant 900 page epic like his early books, instead of creating a four book series written by someone else.

Excellent: As suspenceful and exciting as shadows of war. Completely disagree with reviewer # !. Characters are all well delineated and totally believable.When reading I couldn't put it down.

Two Stars for the idea 25 janvier 2011
Par M. J Bauer - Publié sur

If you really want to read this book, go to the library and check it out

Why did I give it two stars? The idea behind the book, a China bent on flexing its muscle in Southeast Asia is very interesting - unfortunately the book does not live up to the idea. This is a book where you can just skip through page after page because the dialog really does nothing to move the story or increase the suspense. Some of the plot developments are plain silly, the ultimate role of the Chinese Commando from Book one is - well far fetched is kind, absurd is closer to the mark but hey I can live with far fetched. That is just one small example. Very, very limited description of the reaction of the world to what the Chinese are doing, and a minimal focus on International events and diplomacy which (without regard to your view of the efforts)would be at the forefront.

The military operations are also weak, while Mr Bond is usually spot on in this area he has lost his way. Some of the equipment descriptions are good and it is as if one of the authors became interested in the details on an occasional basis and amplified the details for you but even that is sporadic and you lose one of the key attractions of books and authors of this genre, the interesting research into the technology and strategy of the military forces involved is, for the most part, missing. Too bad, as it is a strength of Mr Bonds that is not shown here. There are a couple of key elements and the ambitious plan of Zeus is not given the emphasis it should have as it is the most interesting and has the greatest potential for interest and a plot that unfolds rapidly and leads to an exciting conclusion - doesn't happen

His characters have never been top notch but in earlier works he has made up for that in a very detailed and interesting description of tactics, and equipment that is in use in the world.

Boring and unbeliveable 4 avril 2013

I didn't even get through the book, Unbelievable characters, chump story. Franky, it reminded me of a five cent western from 1880's. I gave it to the local library..

My husband just loves Larry Bond books and was not disappointed with his new adventure. I'm also glad he's back into reading!
