In a couple of weeks time I have 2 long haul flights and would like a book(s) to read in intervals between interuptions on the plane and whilst away. Don't mind fact or fiction but find many book shelves seem to have books aimed at the female market and I want one for male reader - sorry if that sounds sexist. This forum has a wide range of taste and I wonder if there are any recommendations?
Any Bernard Cornwall Sharpe series. Just reading the collection again. 5th time Dale Brown ex US Airforce First book was flight of the Old Dog and I have all his. Tom Clancey Writer of Hunt For Red October and many others. But do not get any of the co-writteen books. Very poor.
Quick skim through the blurb on "Great Quotations" etc includes "Famous Last Words".Don't think I would take that on a flight... my favourite author is Neville Shute, Trustee From The Toolroom, or Town Like Alice, if you haven't already read them.
I've read some of the Sharpe books and also those by Alexander Kent about Bolitho a naval hero which are similar. Tom Clancy is an interesting writer and have read some of his books before. The Philosophy Gym that might take some thought - interesting suggestion.
Always excellently written and brilliantly plotted, and they they are novels they seem to all have been well researched in term of the historical elements that they all contain. They are all different, and cover different eras, touching back several centuries and going up to the present. They're in no particular chronological order, and, except for a couple, (Out of the blue; Into the Sun), are unreleated to one another.
