2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and frustrating, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Undeterred by some of the negative reviews, I gave this book a try. It starts well and then sadly drops away into something that a schoolboy might have written; full of unbeleivable characters, contrived dialogue and too many coincidences. The story had promise, but this was never fulfilled by the time I gave up reading it. There are far too many spelling and grammatical errors to make this book in any way pleasurable. Missing words, wrong words, co-joined words. One character has a temporary name-change. The most frustrating thing was the random punctuation. Example - `A problem,' enquired Jared? Note the position of the question mark; one of far too many occurances.
It would be difficult to recommend this book for any reason - apart from giving an example of not how to write.
Does anyone proof-read any more?

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good story..., 12 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Colony (Kindle Edition)
Like many of the other reviewers, I found this story pretty good and fairly original. The characters were generally believable and the two less-likeable ones get bumped off - maybe a little predictable. I have nothing to criticise about the writing... however, there are some spelling mistakes and one character has a momentary name-change (MacIntyre becomes McGuire for a page) and some of the punctuation is a bit odd. Don't let this distract anyone from an otherwise good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read from James Becker, 19 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read as I would have expected from James Becker. I have read all the previous Chris Bronson books and have enjoyed each. Mr Becker manages to weave fiction into fact successfully, as he appears to research well and makes a good story. However, one small detail spoilt this one - that being quite a few references to Czechoslovakia being a country still in 2012. One small slip-up (repeated a few times), which won't be enough to spoil it for everyone.
