  The second and third were pretty bad. The fourth was decent, and I think
the last was pretty good. If you like the psychological aspects of Herberts
work, read Destination Void (not particularly good), The Jesus Incident, The
Lazarus Effect and Acension Factor (all very good). Its a series; you can
get away without the first book. A book called Dragons in the Sea or Under
Pressure is a really cool sub warfare book.
