What is the biography of Chris Ryane?
>>By Aghapoor (Saturday, 26 Apr 2003 13:53)
Had to say:
One that got away = 9/10
Kremlin Device = 10/10
Stand by Stand by = 9/10 (mainly for the ending!)
10th Man Down =0/10 (got bored a few chapters in I'm afraid and put it down)
Ultimate Force on ITV1 however, was excellent.

Crummy, only heard about Chris's place yesterday.
Hi Sheba, you here too?
Get your Tenth Man Down out and start reading again. It's a very good book and super ending.
I agree with you about Ultimate Force. The film shoots had a professional edge the like we don't get to see in budget movies. And I did like Chris Ryan. He's a really nice bloke. So easy going, and his Geordie accent is not that strong. If any thing it's been corrrupted to quite a sexy lilt by that same Hereford drawl as Andy McNab.

same Hereford drawl as Andy Mcnab has acquired. Not so much saaf London any more.
I missed what I wanted to say due to being a tad rat-assed this morning after Matrix Reloaded. (Perks of being in the biz.) It was amazing and.........well, wait til you see it as I'm sure will. They were all there, any one who is any one, including a few of guess who we love reading.

what did you think of "Greed" ? I liked it, not his best one, but still interesting and a good twist at the end
>>By Lee (Wednesday, 18 Jun 2003 14:27)

>>By christina (Thursday, 19 Jun 2003 19:11)

>>By yo (Monday, 30 Jun 2003 00:03)
just finished it and it was great!
how many charahcters has chris ryan got going because in the hit list its neil slater and in the other ones i own tenth man down goerdie sharp and land of fire mark black (i havent read them yet) does he continue with the characters or does he just make new ones up each book
>>By christina (Wednesday, 2 Jul 2003 19:41)
the first 4 were geordie sharp but in all his latest books he's invented new characters but i wish he would do one last book about geordie sharp and make it so he gets killed at the end
>>By yo (Sunday, 13 Jul 2003 17:57)
do you think he will ever go back to any of his new charachters and carry them on? i hope he does!
>>By christina (Monday, 14 Jul 2003 18:27)

>>By Paul R (Monday, 14 Jul 2003 19:50)
lol paul R
so which one should i read next zero option, stand by stand by ,tenth man down or land of fire?
>>By christina (Monday, 14 Jul 2003 19:57)
read them in order if you can. Stand By, Stand By, Zero Option, The Kremlin Device, then Tenth Man Down. After that they are stand alones. I highly recommend The Watchman- it's a great read.
take care, speak soon
>>By Paul R (Monday, 14 Jul 2003 20:06)

Well, I've read a few of his fiction novels as well as TOTGA. Yes, I'm suppose I am a bit of a fan of CR, but I enjoy reading all books containing stuff about the SAS any author. I'm currently reading CQB by Mike Curtis, and I'm very pleased so far.
I'm about to order Remote Control by AM, because I haven't read any of his fiction novels yet.
The last CR-book I read was The Watchman, and was impressed! Great plot with surprising turns and twists. The Hit List was also very good, but I've forgotten who the main character was.
Am I right about the following? :
These books are linked with the same lead character, Geordie Sharpe: Stand by - stand by, Zero Option, The Kremlin Device and Tenth Man Down.
Then came the stand-alones; The Hit List, The Watchman and now finally Greed.
Am I correct?
I also bought Chris Ryan's SAS Fitness Guide. Hehe... it has great workout-routines though.
He certainly knows what he's talking about.

Oops, forgot Land of Fire....
