This book reads like a movie. Vivid, full of action. However, he's more than a little snippy about America and Americans. Usually, I'm oblivious to this kind of slurs....but I noticed. That's something. Or at least, the book character is. Then of course, he's Australian. The character claimed Aussies to be peaceful people who never stir anybody to war. Come to think of it, I don't know of one. I am not so familiar with hisjavascript:void(0)tory though.

On the other hand, if you ever wonder about the Seven Wonders and what they're good for, then this book is a good tour of it, with a good dose of bullets and high body counts.
