Read this easily in an afternoon and really enjoyed it I d quite like to see of how Ben s life goes from here I could kind of see where it was going, but thought it was nicely done Maybe it was the particular subject matter, but I found myself getting emotionally involved in the story than I would normally, so that was kind of a nice change too I think it was because the subject matter was realistic than the previous books in the series Thumbs up from me. The Brand New Action Packed Sixth Code Red Adventure Thriller For Young ReadersFourteen Year Old Ben Tracy Goes To Pakistan With His Environmental Activist Mother, Who Then Travels Across The Border Into Afghanistan, Leaving Ben Behind, Where It S Safe But Ben And His New Friend, Aarya, Are Kidnapped And Find Themselves Caught Up In A Terrifying Planned Taliban Attack That Could Destroy Southern Afghanistan Killing Thousands And When Ben Sees Their Kidnappers Are Carrying Some Sort Of Weapon That Looks Like A Suitcase, He Realizes That Their Lives Are In Serious Danger Code Red Battleground by Chris Ryan is an action filled adventure which most readers will find completely engrossing.The book focuses on the themes of modern warfare and so is recommended for those with a love for military based reads The story s main plot follows a fourteen year old teenager named Ben Tracy who was born in Macclesfield, Cheshire Whilst taking part in a school organized exchange trip, he finds himself kidnapped and held hostage by a group of strange armed men Worse still, when Ben finds out that the men are carrying a suitcase bomb he realises he may have stumbled on a sinister terrorist plot that is about to unfold.One of the reasons this book is so addictive is because most of the story is seen from Ben s point of view The reader sees what Ben sees, and we only know what Ben has managed to find out By using this clever technique, Chris Ryan repeatedly establishes a real bond between his character and the reader We feel involved in the plot and this makes the book much enjoyable Another reason is that this book is in actual fact very realistic It might not seem that way at first, but the overall plot is something that COULD happen to this day and age Chris Ryan has made sure to emphasise this fact by including the following information before the prologue in his book.On 7 September 1997, former Soviet military commander Alexander Lebev claimed that 100 Russian made suitcase sized nuclear bombs were currently not under Russian control The Russian Federation denied these claims, but they were backed up by Stanislav Lunev, the highest ranking Soviet officer ever to defect from Russia Lunev believed that some of these nuclear weapons had already been deployed What was beyond doubt was that the Russians no longer knew where they were I think Battleground by Chris Ryan is an amazing book I loved it I enjoyed it a lot It is also one of my favorite books It is so interesting I couldn t stop reading it once I started it, which is weird because I don t find many books that I enjoy and are interesting to me But this book was one of the best I have read yet I think everyone else should also read it. This was a great read Was not that impressed with unrealistic plot, surely this author can do better.
