Anyone who has ever played Counter-Strike will know the fearsome power of an AK47. There’s nothing scarier than the sight or sound of an AK coming at you, unseen. It doesn’t even matter what map you’re on; you know there’s going to be carnage when you hear those 7.62mm rounds whiz past you or ricochet off the walls.
If you’ve ever felt even the slightest fascination (or respect) for this gun, you’ve got to read AK47 by Michael Hodges.
I never imagined how much real-world pain and suffering could be tied to a gun that we used to be in awe of at cybercafes.
It gets a little depressing at times, but nevertheless, the book is fucking awesome.
And I don’t mean that in a “God Bless America” sort of way, either.
