The Grey Man I got this from the library today from the quick read section along with 4 others It was my first McNab novel I have read and I thought it was so good and very funny I know it s very hard to establish characters and build the foundation of a great story over such a short book but I felt I could have written this myself during an afternoon watching the tv No impressed but will reserve a proper rating of the author until I read one of his full titles. It was a refreshing change to read a story about a happily married couple in the Grey Man by Andy McNab Kevin and Linda Dodds live a content but routine life in England Kevin is the deputy manager of a bank branch while his wife works in a Specsavers store Kevin is the grey man unremarkable, unnoticed, uninspired but one day he decides he has had enough of being put down by his boss and others He initiates a plan to rob the bank where he works.McNab manages to create a surprising amount It was a refreshing change to read a story about a happily married couple in the Grey Man by Andy McNab Kevin and Linda Dodds live a content but routine life in England Kevin is the deputy manager of a bank branch while his wife works in a Specsavers store Kevin is the grey man unremarkable, unnoticed, uninspired but one day he decides he has had enough of being put down by his boss and others He initiates a plan to rob the bank where he works.McNab manages to create a surprising amount of suspense in this short book which is part of the Quick Reads series He quickly establishes the characters and creates a believable scenario which leads you to wonder how the situation is going to be resolved It is a satisfying, enjoyable tale, even though it does glorify robbery This is the first Andy McNab book that I have read and is sure not going to be the last.A lovely simple story about a normal bank clerk, the grey man of the title It would have been so easy to pad this out to fill 300 pages but at about 100 it is a crisp to the point read Ideal reading for traveling or if your not in the mood for something long winded.Recommended. Not really his metier, slightly amusing but lukewarm overall Just by the authors name, I was expecting soldiers, explosions and some serious action I didn t get that, but I can t really complain as I got an engaging story It started off gently then got quite tense and a little exciting, with an uplifting ending Really enjoyed it. A STUNNING ACTION THRILLER FROM A REAL LIFE HEROKevin Dodds Leads A Dull, Uneventful Life He Has A Steady Job At The Bank, A Nice House And Car His Wife Goes To Bingo On A Saturday Night, But He Usually Stays In To Save MoneyBut Kevin Has Spent Enough Quiet Nights In Watching TV And Decides He D Like A Night Out Himself And He S Not Talking About A Pint And A Packet Of Peanuts Down At The Local He S Going To Attempt To Pull Off A Daring Bank Robbery Single HandedKevin Is About To Take A Heart Thumping Step Into The UnknownFor Once, He S Going To Stop Being The Grey Man Brilliant readingGreat author as always loved the story it kept you wanting too not put the book down till it was finished really enjoyable It was alright, not very gripping and a bit weak by McNab s usual standards think he should stick to the Nick Stone stuff This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I was given this book as a gift and told it was a good read The good thing is that it s short The writing is very amateurish, even for a short story I ll give Andy McNab a miss in future.
