Book Description

Jack has been brought in by the government to study strange objects. These objects are dangerous to the touch, but not to Jack.

When his superiors discover he can interact with the objects, he's brought even further into the fold. Soon he's introduced to bizarre creatures that just a handful of people have ever witnessed. His simple life has turned into a freak show.

And it only gets worse.

    Bad Jack - Adam Moon

    This sci-fi suspense thriller follows Jack, a relatively normal man whom has been brought in by the government to analyse strange objects. These unfamiliar items are extremely dangerous to touch for everyone except Jack, and when his superiors discover this, Jack finds himself forced to become more involved with the government facility. Even to the point of being introduced to strange creatures that very few people have ever seen. Jack is catapulted into a place where he unexpectedly becomes deeply involved and as the story unfolds, the reader gets to see what happens to Jack.

    This book is extremely well written and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat the entire time. It is really the epitome of suspense, to the point that I stayed up and read the entire book in one sitting! Don't start reading it unless you have time because it is sure to reel you in quickly and you'll find yourself hooked right from the start.

    Moon is a very clever writer and manages to create suspense, fear, and horror as well as numerous humorous and comic moments that lighten the mood. The book as a whole is quite dark, but very easy to read, which is a testament to the great writing skill of the author. The characters are very well developed and the plot itself is full of unexpected twists and turns throughout the entire story. Without giving too much away, endings can sometimes be disappointing and predictable, but not in Bad Jack. The ending of this book is quite shocking but completely draws the story to a point and doesn't leave you unsatisfied.

    If you enjoy sci-fi, suspense, thrillers then you will definitely love this book, and I would certainly recommend reading it. Moon is obviously an up and coming author in this genre, and I look forward to reading more of his work, especially if there is a sequel to this fantastic book!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly Imaginative!! 10 Jun. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Loved this..nice pace to start..a whole recharting of one mans personality from destroyed individual..with plot building suspense and intrigue through extremely imaginative artifacts to amazing live specimens.Jack's whole world has had a rewrite,in fact so has his personality and what appears to be his luck has changed..but there is a gentle hint something may not be quite right..A nifty ending completed one of the most original kindle books I have read for sometime..believe there may be a sequel but it works well as a stand-alone novel..however doesn't stop me adding a sequel to my wishlist!!

    By Daniel
    This is one of my best reads so far this year. It is well written and easy to read. It is scary and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has comedic silliness and a very sexy romance and crazy people that need a serious psychiatric hospital. It has twist and turns in the plot and a surprise at the end that will have you holding your head. It has some of the best character developments I have ever read. Adam Moon is a name that sci fi and scientific suspense readers are going to be hearing from a lot. This may be one of the best talents to write in this genre in years. He is like a young Steven King before he got really preachy. You do not want to miss this one. Adam consider it a bit of love for your fans and write a sequel.please!

    5.0 out of 5 stars BAD JACK, GOOD BOOK,GREAT WRITER 10 Mar. 2013
    This is one of those books that cost me sleep. I read it in one sitting. It was well written, dark, but funny at times, and the suspense kept building and building. The ending is shocking but it made sense. I highly recommend it.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Just bad. 27 July 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Jack has a dead end job and no life, when he's suddenly offered a job with a great salary - he doesn't know anything about it, but he takes it, as it has to be better than what he's doing now. At a top secret facility, he's asked to look at some strange objects, photograph them, and describe them. When he finds he can interact with the, sometimes deadly, objects without coming to any harm, suddenly he's hot property.

    Sounds like an interesting plot. It's actually written more like a 15 year old boy's adventure story: there's no real plot or development, and he's one of the most juvenile, selfish, self-pitying, nasty bullies I've read about. And he's supposed to be the 'hero' (or anti-hero). He truly believes all his problems are caused by other people, they're never, ever, his fault, and he even hates, really hates, God for not taking a personal interest in his life, solving his problems, and making it as great as he deserves. His boss gives him a hard time because he's a petty little man worried about his job (not because Jack is actually being an arrogant idiot). His previous girlfriend ditched him because she was a horrible person who didn't give him the respect he deserved (his attitude to women made me want to punch him). There are other words I could use to describe his attitude to people, but I'm trying to keep this child-friendly. And it goes on.

    I kept hoping this was part of the plot, and something would happen to show there was a real person in there, but no. The ending wasn't really a surprise, and if, as the story suggests, his father is who he is, he wouldn't be proud of Jack, he'd be ashamed to be related to him.

    5.0 out of 5 stars THE GREAT ESCAPE! 29 Mar. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This was the perfect escapism book. It's strange, terrifying and bizarre. Only at the end did I understand the title. It was the proper horror story I needed to pass the time. Highly recommended.
