Remote Control is the same – it’s about the 4th chapter where things pick up and if you’re not hooked after the events that happen you just won’t be. Andy McNab carries that fine balance where is able to describe everything in gritty detail, but also leave a lot to the users imagination.
What I really like about the Andy McNab books is it’s not all action. You can go 100 pages without any action – it’s just Nick Stone planning, preparing, meeting people or walking around. And it’s enthralling. Just reading about him going to the mall and spending an hour preparing for a meeting and making sure the person he is meeting with isn’t shadowed – McNab manages to capture the atmosphere perfectly so you can really picture it as if you were there.
