Skip to comments.Thriller Week (Hugh Hewitt goes overboard again)
Posted on 07/08/2009 3:25:15 PM PDT by EveningStar
...We're not talking about wall-to-wall Michael Jackson coverage. This week is fiction week as Hugh interviews many of America's most popular thriller writers practicing the craft. Today's program featured interviews with Brad Thor, the immensely talented writer of the Scot Harvath novels, and with Alex Berenson, author of the John Wells series...
And on today's show
Hugh continues fiction thriller week with Steven Pressfield today, author of Gates of Fire, The Legend of Bagger Vance, and Killing Rommel, which will be discussed at length in the last two hours of the show today.
But in the first hour, Hugh and Steven will talk about the part of the world the Marines are getting to know real well - Afghanistan...

One of the main (fictional) characters is Dioniches, whose famous phrase (in real life)was recorded by Herodotus; when warned that the Persians had so many archers that their arrows would blot out the Sun, Dioniches replied...
“Well then, we will fight in the shade.”
Just be grateful he's not doing an entire week of his infamous "Talk Like A Pirate" shows.
Hugh Hewitt puts me to sleep, listening to his show is like watching paint dry in a humid climate....
Sorry, but that is how I feel every time I listen to him.
What? Hugh “is” the squashy middle of the GOP.
Hugh’s show has always been RINO central in my view.
Hugh is definitely on the right side of the political spectrum.
I've never caught one.
Count yourself lucky. I'd rather listen to Barney Frank recite 1000 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.
I agree. Thor, as a writer, is a pale imitation of all of the other “comic book thriller” writers in the Clive Cussler mold.
If I’m going to read comic books, they should have colorful pictures, at least.
If Thor takes more than a month to write a thriller novel, it sure doesn’t show.
HH was an open borders pro-amnesty RINO until his callers literally pummeled him into backing away from that squishy country club position.
By his own admission Hewitt is "center-right."
The guy's a Constitutional Law professor but occasionally he will come down from the Ivory Tower and get it right on an issue.
In my opinion he is a Republican before he is a conservative.
And it was the Republicans that lost us the last election and continue to by not showing any spine and engaging in the debate.
Yes. I've heard him say that many times. I agree with him most of the time.
“Hugh Hewitt puts me to sleep, listening to his show is like watching paint dry in a humid climate....”
I don’t think his show is carried in my area anymore. No loss. I never liked the guy.
"Arrrr!" in name only?
Hugh Hewitt is definitely squishy, he is barely to the right and devotes his show to moving conservatives always to the left just a little smidgen more every day.
Hugh Hewitt is truly a Mitt Romney type guy.
The problem with a character driven series is that they often grow stale. Best to have a few that you can work with and you can riff off their personalities.
Plus, how friggen cliched is the ex-Navy Seal/Delta Force/Spec Ops super action figure theme?
Who also worked with the CIA, flies jets (helps in commuting to hot spots), and has his own private entrance to the Oval Office.
