    One thought on “Forbidden Area”

    1. A true Cold War thriller in the vein of Fail-Safe and Red Alert and possibly an alternative outcome to Frank's famous novel Alas,Babylon. Published in 1956 Forbidden Area was one of the first novels (I believe) to look at the possibility of Soviet "Sleeper" agents infiltrating the United States. Like Frank's other novels it moves rapidly, keeps your interest and is more of a novella than a full-length work of fiction. It's suspenseful and the lack of 21st century communication technology will fr [...]

    2. Written in 1956 and taking place in the present or possibly the near future, this book imagines that the Russians have achieved the ability to destroy the US and are planning to do so very soon. The narrative follows the Intentions Groups, a multi-disciplinary committee with CIA, Army, Navy, Air Force and Atomic Energy Commission representatives. The latter is an incredibly intelligent woman in a high place of power, which is very forward-thinking of the author. I don't really know much about mi [...]

    3. 4.5 stars from Jana, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATUREDisclaimer: just so you know, some of the books we review are received free from publishersForeign espionage and sabotage undermining the credibility of American armed forces. A counter-intelligence group mocked and silenced for its theories. Shadowy plans, decades in the making. The fate of the world caught in the balance between devastation and salvation. Pat Frank describes all of these in Forbidden Area, which was first published [...]

    4. If you think Tom Clancy invented the techno-thriller, think again. This novel was published in 1956 and depicts a prossable first strike by the Soviet Union. Yes, it is dated, but it is a wonderful window into the fears of the "duck and cover" world of the 1950s. The aulthor also wrote Alas, Babylon which I and many other read while in high school. The writting is clear and tention packed. You finish the book with the unsettling question, can we have another Pearl Harbor, that is a surprise atta [...]

    5. Forbidden Area starts out a little slow. But, give it a little bit and it takes off. After the character introductions this book will keep you engaged. First time in a while I've really not been sure of how it will turn out. As with most of Pat Frank's work, the nuclear bomb is one of the main characters and you'll really wonder if or when someone uses one in this book. I felt connected to the characters and the plot so I'd recommend this as a good, quick read.

    6. This is the third Pat Frank book I've read, and I've got to say I enjoyed it. It's a short-coupled tale that a t times feels like it could go places Frank doesn't take it, but still for the Atomic Age, it's a wonderful "what if" that gets you to thinking about military policy, political gamesmanship and general skullduggery. A good read all the way around.

    7. This is the 2nd book from Pat Frank I have read, the first has been one of my favorite books, Alas Babylon. This is a great Cold War thriller, a quick read, and a real page turner. I look forward to reading more of Frank's work.
