Book Series for Guys
September 08, 2010
The two Swagger series by Stephen Hunter are fast paced, action packed, and my personal favorites. Earl Swagger was a Marine WWII Medal of Honor winner and an Arkansas State Police Sergeant. His Son, Bob Lee, is a Marine Vietnam veteran and famous Sniper. Hunter pays special attention in his novels to descriptions of firearms and their operation. He is also a Kansas City native. The two series should be read in order to get the full feel of the characters; but are excellent stand alone novels as well. The Earl Swagger series is comprised of 3 novels starting with Hot Springs. The Bob Lee Swagger series is comprised of 7 novels, starting with Point of Impact, which was the basis for the film, Shooter. All of the Swagger novels are available in the MCPL system.
