Field of Dishonor (Honor Harrington Book 4)
Field of Dishonor (Honor Harrington Book 4)
Price: 4.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a big military sci fi fan and always on the look out for more space opera, so when I found this series I was in pig heaven !
I am now on my 4th book in the series in 7 days and the following occurs to me
This series of books follows along the lines of 'Galaxy Unknown' - some of the plot lines are virtually inseperable. However, I am now in the 4th book and find myself reluctant to read more.... Yes I've seen some of the spoilers and know there isn't good news coming, but Mr weber has so engaged me with the Harrington character that I'm not sure I want to know what happens ! And that doesn't happen very often in a book I so enjoy.
I am looking forward to Honor's further adventures and (I hope) the complete downfall of the dastardly Young character in the end
I can throuroghly recommend these books from what I have read

1.0 out of 5 stars Useles for the job i had in mind, 28 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to move my washing machine and dishwasher. Managed to get them under the machines, but by leaning the machines over - there isn't enough leverage on the bar they provide you with.
Then as soon as we moved it, they started to slip off the machine. Nothing we did kept them on. Ended up moving them with my brother in law's sack barrow
sadly for me, these were a waste of time and money

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is the same as maximum impact, 6 Jun 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
DO NOT buy this book if you have read 'Maximum Impact' by the same author - they are the same book
it's a bit cheeky trying to pass this off as adifferent book
i can only reiterate - do not buy it if you ahve raed the other one by this author

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Reacher, 26 Mar 2008
As one of the other reviewers said, not one of Lee Child's strongest, but nonetheless a pleasing page turner that I managed to finish in two days.
The nice thing about Reacher is that we know and like him and can sympathise (and envy) with the way he deals with issues.
Two thirds of the way through the book, I had worked out some of the plot, but not all: it is rare to do so in a Jack reacher novel (for me anyway)
In summary, a novel that treads where others have before. It's comfortable and you know he will win. if you liked the other Reacher novels you will like this one


Death's Head: (Death's Head Book 1)
Death's Head: (Death's Head Book 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a rip roaring adventure !, 19 Jun 2007
This novel has the gutter charm of Sven Hassel; the rip roaring pace of Matthew Reilly and the galactic span of EE Doc Smith.

From the electric beginning to the pulsating middle to the thoroughly enjoyable ending this book took me just 36 hours to read.

Mr Gunn's book has action at it's heart but mixes it with well drawn characters and a plot that is at the same time down to earth and spanning the galaxy. Sven's humanity (is he human ?) shines through at every turn

Please tell me that this is the first of a long line of Svens novels. I need more !

5.0 out of 5 stars Scarecrow, 22 Oct 2003
This review is from: scarecrow (Paperback)
I love Tom Clancy - he keeps you guessing and Lee Childs has a completely different but engrossing way of writing. Clive Cussler is great too. But no one writes at the pace and the sheer turbocharged energy of Matthew Reilly.
Suspend belief and strap yourself into your chair !
Shane Schofield has got to be everyone's classic hero - good looking, invincible in battle but with the right amount of sensitivity.
The latest book has him charging over half the world being chased by every bounty hunter that ever lived. The way that Reilly dangles our hero over the canyon of doom and then rescues him again time after time would pall with other authors. But Reilly just goes on adding incredible storylines that save his characters over and over again.
It does not matter that it couldn't happen in real life. Just let it keep happening to Shane Schofield !
Congratulations Matthew, another winner !
