I need something else to read and need some ARFCOM suggestions.



I've recently read:




- American Sniper

- Lone Survivor

- Black Hawk Down

- Viper Pilot




I like stuff like these, but also like Tom Clancy and have read some of his books.  What else should I look for?

It's fiction, but a good book.  Hell, most of his stuff is entertaining.

Good deal.  Never heard of him, but I've only just started getting into reading a lot.  Looks like they have several of his titles.

Cryptonomicon is a 1999 novel by American author Neal Stephenson.
The novel follows the exploits of two groups of people in two different
time periods, presented in alternating chapters. The first group is World War II-era Allied codebreakers and tactical-deception operatives affiliated with the Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park and disillusioned Axis
military and intelligence figures whom they encounter.



The second
narrative is set in the late 1990s with descendants of the first
narrative's characters employing cryptologic, telecom and computer
technology to build an underground data haven in the fictional Sultanate of Kinakuta. Their goal is to facilitate anonymous Internet banking using electronic money and (later) digital gold currency, with a longer range objective to distribute Holocaust Education and Avoidance Pod (HEAP) media for instructing genocide-target populations on defensive warfare.

Anything by John Sandford, except his one non-fiction book on plastic surgery, unless you're interested in plastic surgery, of course.

The Bracken books.



If you want something off the beaten path check out "Still Life with a Brass Pole."

read Light's Out, it was written by an ARFCOMMER and it's damned good. My brother ordered a signed copy for me, and apparently they're trying to get it made into either a movie or a miniseries of some sort

Great read, you'll be glad you did.  I wish it would come out on audio so I could listen to it while working.  I'm a little busy for much reading right now.

Fearless was hilarious and heartwrenching all on the same page.

Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton, that one's right up your alley.



You should also check out the Generation Kill book.

It was a pretty simple little soap opera.  Nothing profound, but if all you want is a little throwaway fiction with an EOTW theme, you could do worse.

Glad you mentioned that.  There's a guy at church who was actually supposed to bring that to his son's bday party for me.  We both forgot about it; will have to bug him about it!
