Cheap and easy reading for your new Kindle
on 13 February 2011
I bought this for the price, but soon settled into the easy reading and page turning on the Kindle.
It has interstellar travel, cyborgs, giants, corrupt politicians, feudal societies and complacent security forces, and puts them all up against near unstoppable adaptable aliens. If you like the sound of that so far, just go and buy it. Its good value after all.
However the Title is misleading, as the 'Mechs' are actually cyborgs, and not as indestructable as they are made out to be in the early chapters. As a final-solution task-force they would not be anybody's choice after reading this story, but overall they do not detract from, or enhance the story.
I found the spelling mistakes irritating (how many ways can you mistype 'cryo'?) , and the pacing around drinking 'caf' a bit wearing, but still found the book readable and enjoyable.
I have since read and enjoyed the sequel, Mech 2, and will buy Mech 3 when it becomes available.
