Quick read, but less action than usual for Scot Harvath. Some of the story line involving Thomas Jefferson and the Barbary pirates was interesting (vis-a-vis a missing last book of the Koran.) The epilogue was not believable. ( )

What a great read! 'The Last Patriot' really flows very nicely. Two of the things I like about Brad Thor generally, and this book in particular is that the lines are double-spaced so it feels like you are really moving along while you're reading it. Additionally, the chapters are short. Both seem to help move the action along quickly. Scot Harvath does what he does best - track down enemies of the U.S. and dissuade them, often permanently, from their foolish behavior. In this instance he tackles the issue of islamic terrorism. I agree with the majority of what he depicts about islam, except on the occasions when he gets squishy and talks about how the majority of muslims are good people, you know, the moderates. The only thing I can see that distinguishes a moderate muslim from a radical one is this: a radical muslim will use a scimitar to dispatch you, the moderate will hold your feet while he's doing it. As usual, Brad Thor as turned out another thrilling and enjoyable adventure. He is among my top five favorite authors. ( )

Book # 7, in the Scot Harvath series

Although this thriller is part of a series and I prefer reading the books in sequence I had no trouble picking this one at this stage. I was fast taken in by this exiting story and enjoyed Scot Harvath attempts to uncover a revelation that could damage the standing of radical Islam. This book was on the New York bestseller while being banned in Saudi Arabia when it came out (no wonder).

Being my first attempt reading this author was a good experience although having said this, “The Last Patriot” is very formulaic. . I had to set aside that the plot was pure fantasy and not be offended by its topic. Throughout the book we have long anti-Islamic diatribes that may be too much and again we have Homeland Security operatives working under the radar for the president, nothing new there. Many authors have hashed this over and over, it is time to let go.

“The Last Patriot” mixes a certain amount of truth with creative and artistic fiction. The plot is wrapped around the idea that the prophet Mohammed shared a final revelation with some of his closest friends, who then murdered him to keep him quiet and what he said a secret. It all started when the president read the White House diary of Thomas Jefferson sending Harvath on a journey looking for clues to the Jefferson discovery.

This thriller is a buffet of everything we want in a good thriller: suspense, action, well-written, fun, a high-adrenaline escapist and a cinematic page-turner hard to put down. This is pure entertainment. ( )

A great read for the most part, but a couple of huge and avoidable things really hurt it. Without spoiling things too much, I'll just say that (a) if you're working for the president and you have access to the White House and its security to facilitate the performance of some of that work, then it's probably not a good idea to opt instead to work from a rural and isolated location outside of D.C. that has poor security; and (b) when you've cornered a guy at the end of the story who has info that you really want and need, then you should probably handle things a lot differently than Scot Harvath handled them here. Because *that* mistake basically made everyone's previous efforts meaningless. Until the epilogue, which left me interested to see whether it will all be revisited between this point and the start of the next novel in the series or whether it will be forgotten. Nonetheless, in spite of those points, the book as a whole was a lot of fun and addressed some interesting issues ranging from Jeffersonian history to Islam to Caribbean honeymoon options. In the end, all I can say is that I'll be back for more Harvath since I have no intention of abandoning this solid series anytime soon. Just don't make the guy make such boneheaded mistakes, Brad Thor. That's all I ask. ( )

Let me tell you why you shouldn’t read this book. For starters, The Last Patriot is on the bestseller list, which ought to raise a red flag, and its author Brad Thor has a goofy porn star name. Maybe you’re not yet dissuaded, so let’s say you examine the dust jacket: “In a pulse-pounding, adrenaline-charged tour de force [sic], Navy SEAL turned covert Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath must race to locate an ancient secret that has the power to stop militant Islam dead in its tracks.” Of course it sounds like the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard, but what you should actually be doing (aside from putting the book down) is toasting the publisher’s marketing division for their prudence in telling you so little. The actual plot is impossibly sillier.
 
I really enjoyed reading your book. This deserves a lot of audience. Why don't you publish it in N0velStar?And they also have an on-going competition that you might want to join.
