    1. actual rating: 3.5 this book was good, i enjoyed how the story played out during my reading of the book but i don't think i will be continuing on with this series. I'm not saying this book was bad but i just didn't like the genre very much but i think if you love these types of war stories then it will be right up your alley. thank you to the author for putting the glossary at the beginning of the book because it helped with all the confusing terms that were in through out the book.


    2. I was surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did, I'm usually into magic, fantasy and the likes. But yeah I really enjoyed it.I was apprehensive before reading thinking that I'd be easily confused by army vocab but the way McNab wrote made it easier to understand (the index at the front also helped a great deal).As a first time reader of anything army related I found it really interesting to learn about all of the equipment, ranks and procedures. McNab writes it with the enthusiasm of a first time [...]


    3. I was very bored throughout the whole book.It's basically a guide on how to get into the army and be a soldier. With a stupid revenge plot that made no sense, where a character acted like a total idiot, and got a pathetic resolution.So bad. So boring. Never again.


    4. A good short punchy novel. It captures brilliantly what the coalition forces face daily in Stan and the many acts of bravery facing the Taliban Forces. Mnab as his best.



    5. I chose to read this book because I have read one or two books from the same author but not in the same series. Andy McNab writes spy and military books based of true stories. Great for people who have nothing to do on a rainy Sunday. When I went to the library I went straight to the "Teen Reads" shelf and saw heaps of books I had read. I saw this book and realised it was from a author I am familiar with so I picked it up and flicked through a couple of pages and thought it was going to be a ver [...]


    6. Who knew a war book could be so good? i would of given it 5 stars if i was more attached to the characters, but with the way the author wrote it that was pretty much impossible, which in itself isnt a bad thing being that its about war and the soldiers have to close them selves off - but then this is a book not not a biographye details about all the SMG's, BASHA, ASM and etc would of been a pain in the ass but McNab managed to write it in a way where someone like me (who understands NOTHING abou [...]


    7. I was apprehensive about reading 'The New Recruit' at first, as it was not well-known and could possibly be a bit rubbish because of that. But, I read on and I am soooooooo glad that I did so.(SPOILERS FROM HERE ONWARDS)The book opens with a young soldier, Liam Scott, training to be a soldier. He completes many activities on his way and trains up to go and clash with the Taliban out in Afghanistan.Then the story reveals how his best friend Dan had died in a free running accident years ago that L [...]


    8. The beginning dragged a little for me but once training was over, oh, my, word! What an adrenaline filled race to the end! You watch these things on film and the heroes come home, but this is reality and not everyone comes home. And those who do, will never be the same again.I could not put it down In the end and desperately wanted to know what happens when the pressure and danger kept mounting. When those you must trust are not trustworthy, what is left?I am glad I persevered through training, [...]


    9. The start of a new series by McNab follows the story of a young soldier through his training and then into the thick of things in Afghanistan. The first half may seem a little slow to develop, but it gives insight into what new recruits have to go through as it also develops the new character and his difficult past, some of which catches up with him later in the book. The second half is more intense and very much the more familiar McNab style. A very easy read, somewhat predictable, but thorough [...]


    10. I have to be honest, I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It wasn't as brutal and gut wrenching as the more 'authobiographical' Bravo Two Zero. But then this is a fiction, though it's written by a guy who is rather familiar with British military life. I found this genuinely easy reading.


    11. Decent book, not one that i'll ever find myself re-reading however. The story was okay but could have added more detail between Liam and Mike. The book also seemed to feel short and maybe could have just been fleshed out more.


    12. A great read, and a good insight on what it takes to become a soldier, then go on to serve in Afghanistan. Couldn't put it down. Plot was perhaps a bit predictable but this didn't affect my enjoyment. I shall look forward to the next one!


    13. It was good not great. Being a soldier Andy McNab's description of the training and of combat in Afghanistan was excellent. However, the underlying story of the brother who blaimed the recruit for his brother's death was a bit of let down otherwise I would have given it more.


    14. It has to be one of the most realistic military fiction based books I have ever read it just lures you in from the start and once you finish the first book you just want the next




    15. Andy McNabb writes great stories from first person of experiences in the military. While occasionally stilted, they are always interesting and give a good indication of what being a soldier is like.


    16. 3.5 stars would be more accurate.A decent little story and I picked up some knowledge about the army throughout which was a nice touch. Nothing spectacular here, but solid and fairly entertaining.


    17. The first Liam Scott thriller is absolutely amazing this book tells you what its really like at war


    18. Not the best read, an ok story and some very basic prose to boot. Nice dialogue though.lordofthereads/2014/04/08/


    19. This was the first Andy McNab book I ever read and boy I love it. An intense journey filled with heart pumping action and a few teary moments. Can't wait for the next instalment.


    20. I found I quite boring, it was good but got boring as I continued to read it. I didn't read it to the end but I think if I read it further it would have gotten better.
