5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait., 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pandemic (Kindle Edition)
The thing about trillogys and sagas are that the time it takes to get the books out,after infected and contaigen which were great reads,could not wait for the 3rd part of this alien invasion.Not the little green men from mars type but microscopic,and scott sigler came up with a practicle way of doing it.As ever,the story this guy comes up with are immersive and twists and turns the reader with the plot, thinking this is possible.Better and more realistic than world war z and very well writtten,the story left me drained as i read this in 3 days-a true cant put down book-thanks scott,fantastic writter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any where but here., 19 Feb 2014

The name of this small town suggests its a safe place to be,but after an event happpens,its the last place on earth you would want to be.The town and those inside on the 4th july end up on a tour of something like Dantes 7 visions of hell.Part sci fi/horror that would be enjoyed by those who enjoyed tv shows like lost and the dome,although the book takes nothing much from these.Jeremy bishop states that the book pans out like a tv series,and this it does very well with the bonus that you dont have to wait until next week for the next episode.The fact that the 5 sections of the book were co written with other writers did not spoil the style-you would assume it was written by one.My opinion,it was a great read and did so in 3 nights.It was the kind of story one would expect from mr king.More like this,please mr bishop.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth every 5 stars, 15 Nov 2013

A near future sci fi alien invasion at its very best.The book is very well written and the story unfolds in a way that you cant put it down-i read it in 2 sessions.If,like me,you enjoy books by adam baker,scott sigler,grieg beck,then i suggest you read this.I will not give away any of the plot,the synopsis is all you need to know and that book 2 will be out in 01/01/14-cant wait.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun but full of holes-some spoilers here., 6 Nov 2013

This review is from: Crogian (Kindle Edition)
I do enjoy sci fi edged thrillers,and this book was,to a point,just that.But 200 ft reptiles and 100 ft snakes,insects with teeth and spiders that bite off limbs-all moving around at speeds that are impossible.Ok its fiction so we go along with the authors immagination.Aside the reaction of the characters to the unfolding events,some of which made me laugh,the thing about the story that puzzled me was this-After an alien space ship is dug up,its found to have "worm hole tecnology"to navigate the galaxy.once its understood and succesfully tried you would think nasa would be exploring but no,the first trip comes back with an idea on how we can make plants massive and unedible,also creating giant insects all for weapons against the enimies of the usa.Of course it goes wrong.If this book had been written in the 1950s,i guess the author could have got away with some of his ideas.Having said that,the book is well written and i did enjoy it and if possible i would have given an extra half star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fred is dead, 5 Nov 2013

This review is from: The Hole (Kindle Edition)
This is the 3rd book i have read by mr meikle,and again,another 5 star book.Its difficult to review without spoilers,but i will say its a "now time horror/sci fi" with a stephen king style feel without an over blown build up that sometimes makes books of this genre tiresome.The synopsis tells you what you need to know,it is of course,unbeliveble fiction but like the films we enjoy,entertaining.The plot unfolds well and at a good pace with my kind of ending i.e not always a good one.Invasion and the valley are also worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars missing vital track, 7 Jan 2013
the best of jack taylors rojac and tayster labels? so what about master 4-love has taken wing,the 1 track that would make this cd a worthy buy.disc 1 wont have much appeal to northern soul fans.disc 2 has the northern tracks,having said that,they have been released on other cds.its the super rare releases that make cds like this a worthwhile buy.therefore a bit of research by the compiler would not go amiss.why worry about northern fans?well,without the ns scene,labels,artists,records like these,would have stayed undiscovered.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star entertainment, 22 Nov 2009
This review is from: Taken [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
one of the best films of this genre.please ignore the anti american critics of this movie.if you like fast paced action films without the "fat" then give it a view.you get taken in by by the cool dead pan liam neesons rage,after his daughter is abducted by albanian sex trafficars.yes,the plot as with most action thrillers is OTT,but you end up hating the the french,arabs,albanians,rich yanks.sex trafficing young women has become a real problem since europe opened up its boarders to the rest of the world,this film although its fictional,reconfirms why i hate the fact we are in the EU.you cheer every time an eastern european/arab/corrupt french,gets a painful death.i just wish neeson destroyed the eifel tower,as threatend.yes,this film brings out the "jingoism" in you.if you are the type of person who loves the euro zone ect,then stick to mary poppins.
