Why did I love this book?
As a military fiction author, I frequently look for other authors whose style speaks to me in terms of pacing, story progression, character & story arcs, drama vs action, and of course overall quality of the story. As a man who was raised on my dad’s Tom Clancy novels, who has lived to fight directly in the world of Special Operations combat, and who loves nothing more than a good hero story, I Am Pilgrim is to this day the best novel that I have ever read. Bar none.
This story is more of a spy novel than a direct combat-themed Special Operations novel, but it exists in the shadowy world of assassinations, spycraft, hunting down bad guys, covert international operations, and the hunt for global terrorists that lovers of the military fiction genre will appreciate. If you read one book this year, make it I Am Pilgrim. You will thank me.
