I've never read a full novel of his, but I've followed his articles and read most of "Hey, Rube" and it is very good though it is just a collection of editorials. Here's a quote that he wrote the day of 9/11:
"Make no mistake about it: we are At War--with somebody--and we will stay At War with that strange and mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives."
Doesn't that quote give you chills? It's scary how true it became. My friend says his favorite of his novels is Kingdom of Fear, which I will probably read now. I feel bad for not having read many of his books before Sunday.
There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
