I’ve finally had a chance to give Andy McNab’s DropZone: Bk. 1 the thorough reading it deserves, and I can tell you it ain’t just for kids. Dropzone is indeed fun, exciting, and written in a way that won’t have you reaching for your thesaurus, but the action and descriptions (particularly the parts about sky-diving) deliver in a way that only Andy McNab can, and the insider viewpoint he always provides will have adults as well as teens getting vertigo as they experience the thrills alongside the main character in this series, Ethan Blake.
Young adults will find in the Drozone series not just adventure but moral lessons that aren’t ‘preachy’ or out-of-touch with today’s youth culture — Andy McNab writes in an honest, non-judgmental way that is refreshing to see in a young adult series.
In short, Dropzone is a fast, fun read for adults, and an adventure classic for youths.
