Or Nick Stone: The Dishwater Edition. This Andy McNab book follows the same downward spiral as the last few books in the series, an overly-padded and way too slow-paced would-be thriller that offers anything but thrills. The thriller aspects of the story make up around a third of the pages and the rest is just padding involving the main characters sitting around or wandering around aimlessly.

McNab misses the fact that thrillers need to be pacy and suspenseful even when there isn't shooting going

"Nome in codice Dark Winter" in originale "Dark Winter" è un libro del 2003, romanzo di azione/spionistico di Andy McNab, che è uno scrittore e militare britannico, pseudonimo dietro il quale si nasconde un ex-sergente dello Special Air Service (i corpi speciali dell'esercito britannico), noto al grande pubblico come autore di romanzi di spionaggio. Questo romanzo è del 1997, e fa appunto parte della serie "Nick Stone": in particolare questo è il secondo romanzo della serie.

I loved this book, and I'm going to tell you why. I absolutely believe, without a doubt, that Andy McNab, if that is his real name, has done every single thing he writes about in his books. I am sure he has hunkered down in a hidey hole for days, waiting for a target to show up so that he can call in an airstrike; I am sure he has witnessed atrocities in Bosnia; I am sure he has operated against insurgents in Iraq; I am certain he has killed adversaries in hand to hand combat; and I believe he h ...more

McNab is simply the best action-thriller writer there is! Having read all previous installments in the Nick Stone series, you could say there are some familiar traits in this book, but when it is so well executed, I don't mind at all. Because the suspense and tradecraft is still outstanding - prepare for nailbiting and sleeplessness!

I was hoping for a blood soaked revenge apocalypse after the events of the previous book but it started with Nick Stone depressed and unable to cope. The story soon got going though and it was a great tense ride through Iraq and Bosnia.

Semplicemente...McNab. Quindi pochi fronzoli, azione, realismo, un po' di umorismo, un linguaggio crudo e un protagonista che non è il solito eroe indistruttibile e perfetto.

Another good back in the Nick Stone series, pretty brutal descriptions at the start of what happens to the female captives and also throughout the book when he talks about the uzbekistans boiling captives until their skin peeled and the bit in the cave when the sister of one of Stones accomplaces is sent in (doped and after being raped) to their cave hideout with bombs strapped to her, makes you think what you would do in their situation. Once again though I felt the finale was maybe a little ru ...more

Very disappointed, especially with the ending. The book had a slow start and compared to McNab's previous books I thought this one had very little action in it.
May 12, 2013 Richard rated it liked it
Not the best in the series, a lot of what seems like padding out. This time around, following the events of book 6, Nick Stone's attitude is perhaps reasonable. Hopefully snaps out of it in book 8!

No. 7 in the 'Nick Stone' series and as brilliant as ever. That's all there is to say really. Just read McNab's books starting at no. 1 and enjoy the ride.

I know that the Nick Stone series isn't all about action-packed adventure. But this is just bad. The most boring book of the series to this point.

Took me a while to get into this book. It didn't hook me in like the previous Nick Stone books. A good read with great twists.
