Black List by Brad Thor

Brad Thor Black List

Black List by Brad Thor

I have a confession… Black List is the very first Brad Thor book I’ve read. I know, I know… His work has certainly been marketed towards the pro-gun crowd. And I’ve heard plenty of great reviews about his writing. Why I’ve waited this long to read one of his books I can’t really say.

So, what did I think?

From the moment I started Black List, I was hooked. The story line is great and easy to read. But honestly, that isn’t what I want to tell you about.

What sucked me in more than anything else about this book was how realistically terrifying it is. Although we are living in a time of great technological advances, this same technology could be used to undermine our freedoms. Black List really opens your eyes to some of the ways in which this could (and does) occur. I can assure you that, after reading this book, you will give a little more thought to where the world is headed. And you may experience a little extra paranoia as you go through your day-to-day routines.

From a gun owner’s point of view, this book was great! Brad Thor clearly has some firearm knowledge. It is refreshing to not see the same old errors in gun terminology that are seen in many books. You know the type of errors I am referring to… (clip vs magazine).

So, will I read more Brad Thor books? Let me put it to you this way: It may have taken me a while to get on the Brad Thor train, but Black List has certainly ensured that I’ll be a returning passenger!
