Warspite (Ark Royal Book 4)
Warspite (Ark Royal Book 4)
Price: £3.34

4.0 out of 5 stars Good next step, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This follows on as part four of the series, raising similar problems and thoughtful central characters. The author is a little thin on characterization, but the narrative moves along at decent pace an gives an entertaining read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst this rounds off the series, to some extent, it made this reader feel he taken for a mug. The various timelines used seem to be a device to cover a lack of a coherent plot and any real effort by the author to address the issues he raises in the first three books with any degree of thought or respect for the reader. I am fan of sci-fi in virtually all it genres and was severely disappointed by this instalment. Have no intention of buying any further books by the same writer, and in particular none of the 'spin-offs' envisaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read., 27 Oct. 2014

As with the author's mother books a solid storyline which moves along at the pace of an action film. A little thin on plotline towards the end, but kept me reading throughout. I look forward to reading more from Evan Currie.

Amongst the better books of its type I have had the pleasure of reading. Evan Currie has hit a great balance between the depth of the plot, good sci-fi ideas and a fast-paced story. Worth the money and time, and now going to have a go at book two with some anticipation.

Good plotline, decent characters and overall a well written book. Better than others I have read. If there's a sequel I'll give it a go.

Price: £2.23

2.0 out of 5 stars Fair read, 25 Aug. 2014

...but not so good as others he has written. Lacked some depth and had some plot twists that were both convenient and telegraphed at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit subject to his favourite themes, 17 Aug. 2014

but still a decent Sci-films read as his plotlines are well thought-out and his characters have some depth. Kept me reading.

This review is from: Dark Space (Kindle Edition)
By far not the worst I've read, but concerned the ending is a bit compressed and too convenient. However, will give book two a go to see how things develop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great end to the trilogy, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Christopher Nuttall has written a readable and well-defined end to his trilogy. A book containing tension, battle, and human characters. A book worthy of some of the established classic sci-fi writers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 14 July 2014

Another decent book. A range of characters with some flesh on their bones and who have human strengths and free and frailties. Looking forward to reading the third book.
