An enjoyable, if shortish, thriller very much in the vein of John Buchan’s Hannay stories.

Don't you hate it when you can't look past a minor flaw? It's like Tom Cruise with Scientology, Jim Carey dating Jenny McCarthy, Liam Neeson appearing in that woeful Star Wars film and babies with their lack of personal hygiene. If it wasn't for these minor flaws you could really enjoy what is before you, especially if you didn't get sick of Jim Carey years ago.

There is a lot to like about Matt Lynn's Ice Force, especially if you like the "real operation" styled thrillers that Chris Ryan and Andy McNab write. Matt differs from the others in this style with his humorous banter between the characters, something I really like to see in novels, something I am trying to do with my own writing. So what is it that I'm hung up on? The misogyny.

Now, I'm not saying that this book and the writer are misogynistic, rather I'm saying that there is a tone stated by some of the characters that women aren't good at soldiering, that they distract men from the soldiering and that they are generally just eye candy. This is typical bloke-y fare that you get with the military and men talking at the pub who hate to admit that they are not in charge in their relationship. It may be "real" but I really don't like reading it.

It reminds me of a cartoon: http://xkcd.com/385/

So, this was a great thriller, but points off for marginalising women.

Good job this was a freebie. The stock market scenario left me cold.

This book was a bit too 'talky' and not enough action for me. Fine if you like that sort of thing but I found the pharmaceutical / stocks & shares chatter a bit too much at times. I only managed to finish because it didn't exceed 300 pages lol. Oh well, some you win and some you lose.
