Anyhow - onto the book. While I ultimately got this book as part of the "three book giveaway" I'd already read it through the Amazon Unlimited 'all you can eat' book library deal. I had initially thought that the book seemed like a formula piece, the usual near end of the world, then unlikely characters pair up and save the day type of stuff.
I was surprised though. The characters were well developed and actually quite interesting, indeed we were learning about them all the way through to the end of the story which is quite unusual. Additionally, the narrative actually followed the story rather than getting bogged down in the detail which often leads an author off on a tangent. For example, without giving anything away, a fairly momentous event, very loud and explosive, shall we say. occurs near the end of the story, and yet despite this happening almost on top of them, our heroes dusted themselves off, and kept on going. It did leave me questioning the consequences of them being right next to said momentous happening - but really it was not important to the story.
Ultimately, a solution to the 'strain' which is obviously a nasty contagious virus wotsit is found, but rather surprisingly it does not involve lots of science type stuff - it is a matter of promoting social behaviour.
I'm on tenterhooks for a sequel as some bad guys were introduced as being the culprits behind the affair, and they were just starting to get interesting. Clearly the Enigma Strain was just one piece in their cunning plan - so I do hope Mr Thacker picks up the thread in a future novel.
All in all, five star excellence from what could have been a first 5 page bust. Bring it on!!!
Up until reading this book I felt the Golden Crystal was the best, but The Enigma Strain was (for me) way way better! The book had me gripped right from the first few paragraphs. It's one of those books you just know you're going to really enjoy - I wasn't disappointed!
Well developed, believable characters I could visualize right from the start, that have you rooting for them when things start to go wrong - and believe me they do!
The two main characters Ben and Juliette were absolutely brilliant, totally convincing. As this is the first book in the Harvey Bennett Series I look forward to many many more.
Harvey "Ben" Bennett and Juliette Richardson I'm sure will have a long and happy relationship!
If you haven't read Nick Thacker Novels yet then you are missing some really good books. Whatever you do don't miss this one!!
I highly recommend this book - it's my first five star review!
Ben was a great central character, we learn a lot about him throughout the book, the other characters were well executed too, including the shadowy figures in the background.
The story itself flowed well, though not fast paced it was full of detail and intrigue. Plenty of action was involved along with a few surprises here and there.
It will be interesting to see what comes next.
With bombs, viruses/bacteria and the inevitable rollercoaster ride the afore said things create, you have an quite intense plot that really gives you ( as said in my title ) more bang for your bug !
Recommended to those people who enjoy thrillers in the vein of Michael Crichton and Dan Brown.
