Book Reading: Shooting War

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The year is 2011. The global war on terror is raging out of control. The American economy is deep in recession. The president is popping Prozac. When a suicide bomber blows a Brooklyn Starbucks to bits, hipster videoblogger Jimmy Burns is in the right place at the right time. His dramatic footage is picked up by Global News ('Your home for 24-hour terror coverage') and Burns is transformed into an overnight media sensation. The next thing he knows he's on a Black Hawk flying low and fast towards war-ravaged Baghdad. But Burns' greatest dream -- to become a war correspondent -- quickly becomes his greatest nightmare. Everyone from his ratings-ravenous bosses, to a renegade squad of U.S. Army commandos, to a tech-savvy band of murderous jihadists all try to make him their pawn. But Burns has other ideas.
