Not all fiction! 2 Oct. 2010
By William Peck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Admittedly, I was astounded at the amount of insight depicted within the pages of this novel regarding the ins-and-outs of the various secret societies and how they integrate with the overall world-wide political and economic trends to favor a select few. Both of my grandfathers and father attended Yale University and I remember well the stories [albeit "facts] related by them - especially my father who was subjected to harsh acts of hazing not knowing what the end held in store for him. Indeed, it wasn't pretty as he opted not to play by their rules and was viciously attacked such that he ended up shunned from their society and was eventually pushed out of "normal" life leaving my mother and I to fend for ourselves. The harshness portrayed in this book is no exaggeration and in fact, is almost too kind to these vultures. Typically, I read a book first skimming it to see if it's worth reading a second time to devour the details. As I stated to the author, it was a no brainer for me as it related to "reality" in my world and the second reading totally absorbed me. Not only because of the facts stated above, but the story itself was well constructed and engaging. I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning how the other side works [i.e. upper echelons] and not look at this as total fantasy. Unfortunately, it's not!

Enagaging and thought provoking - current book for the times 11 Sept. 2009
By J Kirchner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well written and timely for the shaky period the USA is in. Easily passed my 20 page rule - if a book cannot hold me for 20 pages, I usually do not finish. It is more than a theory, there are giants - people who speak and make laws on our behalf without listening to us. There are groups vying to change the morality and values of our country. Globalization will kill the giant that is the USA - when all our jobs are exported. /rant
Read about the last 100 pages in a sitting - couldn't put it down. Storyline is gripping and detailed with a great background on the characters. I usually read King and Grisham, and this did not disappoint. Killing the Giants will be a well read book, looking forward to the next installment.

Poor writing skills 7 Nov. 2009
By Book_Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Recently two people from my younger days have self published books. This is one of the two. I have bought both books and read both books with great interest.

The reason I gave this book only two stars were for a variety of reasons, but largely due to the poor writing skills. The characters are uninteresting and the dialog between them at times is silly and unrealistic. A couple of examples are from the author's own excerpts. This one is so heavily laden with adjectives I get the distinct feeling the author only elf-edited for punctuation and basic grammar:

"As the driver applied the brakes, the dry dirt under the thin layer of dew began to fill the once fresh air with a dusty fog that replaced the mist."

There are many more sentences like this through the entire book. Along with issues of double negatives, misplaced modifiers and in general, bad sentence structure.

The plot however was somewhat interesting, unrealistic as it is, but interesting. I think if Mr. Bennington had taken the time to develop his characters better with dialogue that made sense to the plot, it would have raised the bar many notches.

All in all the book interior, cover and the book website all appear to be hastily done. There are many areas where a little attention to detail could have done wonders. I think if Mr. Bennington spends a few years honing his writing skills and creating his own unique style, he might just have a chance. But I think it's imperative he learns to leave the editing, web design and other self promotion to those more capable that do it professionally.

Fiction - Imaginative - But agree with poor writing skills 16 Nov. 2009
By IN_Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never done a review on Amazon but I was kind of "co-erced" by a family member into purchasing this book. I feel obligated to give one.

I read 3/4's of it before I had to stop. I just couldn't stand the writing skills or the lack of "depth" I suppose you would say. The storyline isn't really plausible and at times I found myself moaning at having to continue reading it. I will admit is at least "imaginative".

There is another review that mentions bad writing skills. I am not particularly fond of studying English but I had a fair share of it in college and I can honestly say that the book is definitely difficult to read at many points throughout. I do understand what the previous review meant by "adjectives". Since he self published, It would appear to me that editing was an after thought on many fronts just as the other reviewer had said.

All in all, it just wasn't a plausible story I could really get into and to me it seems as if the author is another of those who support the right wing agenda of which I am not a huge fan. We're tired of the conspiracy theories. Americans need something positive about politics in order to get re-energized instead of stories like this. Fiction or not.
Jeff Bennington is a great author who puts a lot of research 9 Mar. 2015

Killing the Giants is a must read! It hits home with its conspiracy theory of how our government works top secret missions that can effect the future of everyone. Jeff Bennington is a great author who puts a lot of research, thought and excitement into his books. There is never a dull moment.
