Start your review of Attack on Area 51 Wingman, This revie woriginally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3. It is a bit uncommon these days to find a book or a series that is akin to serial pulp fiction. This appears to be a book series that harkens back to these classic pulp adventure days. He now returns to his very damaged America with an equally damaged memory. The noted Area 51 holds the key and Hawk must fight his way there and along the way he'll remember more and more about alternate universes and his actions among many of them.
Fortunately, Hawk has an uncanny ability to maneuver in any ship that can fly, and he'll need that ability to survive. This is just pure, adventure fun. This is the sort of book you read to take a break from the insightful, meaningful literature you might normally read. It is not intended to make a lasting impression, but rather be a bridge from one book to another.
It is the snack food - the Kit-Kat Bar - of books. And in this role it does a fine job.
I was suitably entertained. I would be very willing to venture into this Wingman world again when I have an afternoon where I am looking for something to read. Looking for a good book?
Attack on Area 51 by Mack Maloney is a Wingman novella that moves along very swiftly, won't hold any lasting impressions on the reader, but will satisfy the craving for some quick adventure. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. Wisely the specific details are left out of references in this latest story. Not that it really matters because this is pure pulp material. Our hero Hawk Hunter so you know he's a real pulp hero is a man's man. He can fly any airplane and the girls swoon and throw themselves at him even the highly educated psychologist ones apparently.
This is not a book that deals in subtlety. A lot of the ideas are hokey. For example St. The US has broken down into a bunch of warring city states, many of them controlled by factions like the Asian Mercenary Cult can you be a mercenary and a cultist at the same time? When I said this was pulp, that's what I meant. It's pure unapologetic pulp fiction. Not a pastiche, not modernized.

Just pulp. Oh and the author made Area 51 central to the book. I think I've mentioned before that I wish people would stop using Area It's way overdone at this point. It was fast paced, it was fun and it required no real effort or thought on my part.
I'd happily read more. I can't honestly describe it as good writing, but I did find it fun. The Wingman series of books started in the late s with a premise of a war started with the Soviet Union and only a handful of survivors. The series falls squarely in with other men's fiction series like The Destroyer or The Executioner. The hero is a man's man as well as a ladies man. These kind of pulp adventures are always fun for a quick read.
This is the 17th book in the series and what looks like an attempt to restart the series. When a wrecked space shuttle is investigated, The Wingman series of books started in the late s with a premise of a war started with the Soviet Union and only a handful of survivors. When a wrecked space shuttle is investigated, a body is found. When the body is found to still be alive and revived, it turns out to be Hawk Hunter.
Hawk was last known to be travelling into space to battle his nemesis and feared lost. After a pretty brief recovery, Hawk is out to find out what might have happened to him. He thinks the answers lie at Area Getting there means battling lots of nameless, faceless bad guys, but Hawk can seemingly fly any sort of plane, so this is no problem. It's best not to take this type of story that seriously.
There are ludicrous displays of action and plot holes abound. The novella ends with enough open questions that there could easily be more in the series. I was given a review copy of this book by Open Road Media and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for letting me review this book. Mar 22, Suzy Wilson rated it did not like it Shelves: dystopia , not-my-cuppa-tea , adventure , poorly-crafted. I am sure, if I were a teenaged boy, I would love,this series. Unfortunately, I am a middle-aged mother of a soon-to-be teenaged boy The Wingman is a post-apocalyptic hero-figure.
He drinks like a fish, channels some kind of ninja-force Russian plane smooshing mojo and objectifies women but at least he doesn't publicly rape them like the 'baddies' in the novel - although bedding Asian comfort women is pretty much the same thing if you look at it through my f I am sure, if I were a teenaged boy, I would love,this series.
