-Book Review: “The Apostle”

by Dr. D ~ July 3rd, 2010

*NOW IN PAPERBACK

By Brad Thor (New York: Pocket Books-Simon & Shuster, 2009, 516 pages)

Brad Thor’s latest ‘Scot Harvath’ action adventure. The book has been out for a while but I am featuring it here because the story is particularly useful in providing a better understanding of what our military is currently facing in Afghanistan.

The story begins with the kidnapping of an American Doctor on a relief mission by the Taliban. They are demanding the release of one of their major terrorist leaders who had recently been captured. It is an official American policy not to negotiate with terrorists.

Scot Harvath is sent over to Afghanistan privately on an ‘unofficial’ mission by the newly elected President. As usual in a Scot Harvath story nothing goes as it was planned but it turns out for the best anyway.

A real ‘page turner’ that I highly recommend.

Here are two more books that can give one a better understanding of Afghanistan:

-"The Kite Runner"

-"A Thousand Splendid Suns"

Also one movie:
