Carrying on my collection of man reading I finished Recoil by Andy McNab earlier this week.  With this book, the question isn’t really whether this book is any good, but more, do you enjoy McNab books?

The story revolves around the relationship between characters that have been established in the previous book and the usual desperation of Nick Stone to complete a task in an area that breeds danger (usually at the cost of a supporting character’s life). Recently this story has seemed slow and stinted but somehow McNab has managed to freshen the formula and produced a book that flows well and keeps the reader engaged in the story.

In Recoil McNab travels to deepest Africa after learning that his charity worker and unashamed pacifist girlfriend has taken up a position in Congo trying to save some local people from jungle fever.  Because McNab is aware of how dangerous the jungle is for a woman, he joins up with a former SAS colleague and his friendly tamed man-servant in order to defeat the Lords Liberation Army (the nasty locals with big guns) and bring his girlfriend back home safely.

  1. Chris,

    So do you have any thoughts on what might have happened if Moses hadn’t stopped to check out the burning bush?

    I’d love to hear what you think might have happened.


  2. Hi Margaret,

    Thanks for your comments.

    I’m not really sure. I think my gut reaction is that he would have missed the chance to lead his nation from Egypt, but that God would have given him a different role.

    But then you think about Jonah and the lengths God went to to ensure that he did do what he wanted – maybe that would have happened in Moses case, but I don’t think that is ‘normal’.

    Have you any thoughts on that?
