5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 Jun 2014

Fantastic, MS has a great voice & the subject matter to back it up. See them live if you can for a brilliant, if unusual, evening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Grat Action, hard to believe science, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I struggle with the "science" in this. The action adventure is excellent, but the science, which forms more of a core of his last few books, is becoming more & more flakey - a hand held device that can knock down buildings by harmonics, really?

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took so long for anything to happen, and then not much did really. He meets a woman, goes to a small African country in the midst of civil war pretending to be a journalist, meets another woman, helps out a bit, gets shot (by her), comes home, goes to America, sorts out some drug smuggling with the help of the FBI. The end

I have never read the Flemming originals, so I guess this might be true to them, but the pace of Higsons Young Bond is sorely missed. I'd rather be reading the early Ben Hope books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broke after first use, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Broke on second card I tried to punch.
Being cautious I tried a test so that I could make sure I was doing everything right then tried my actual SIM card. Second go (my real sim card!) it didn't punch fully & the punch mechanism separated slightly, leaving me with a half punched SIM stuck in the mechanism. After a bit of "adjustment" with a hammer got my SIM punched and out intact, but a hairy few minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New, 28 Nov 2012

Alien technology destroying earth, wormholes, a little time travelling trick that I still havent quite got my head around involving 2 wormoles, self serving beurocracy.

Neal Asher does it better, faster & more plausibly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting, 28 Nov 2012

A light happy tale of someone aspiring to a destiny & achiveing that goal, with the world conspiring to help. A bit Jonathon Livingston Seagull, but that is no bad thing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Containment (Kindle Edition)
A Venus colony struggling for air, having oxygen shipped from earth, with a plant based oxygen generation system. No mention of water shortages & unlimited energy as "fusion has been solved". I found the "science" in this fiction too inconsistent to continue.

Not a case, just a plastic back. As such no use to me. I think both image and description are misleading.
