The Stone Man - A Science Fiction Thriller by Luke Smitherd
5.0 out of 5 stars A real page-turner, 17 Mar 2014
Bought this solely upon recommendation after getting my first Kindle - very quickly realised I wouldn't regret the gamble!

As i've said in the headline, I found this story to be a real page-turner. The author succeeds in giving away just enough detail and story progression chapter-by-chapter, whilst maintaining a healthy level of suspense and uncertainty over what the big picture is versus the action happening page after page.

I admit to being biased - Cornell is my favourite musician, having been a fan of Soundgarden since the early days and loving both Audioslave and his solo album.

Never the less, this song stands up on it's own. It ranks alongside some of his best works - Loud Love, Black Hole Sun, Burden in my Hand, Gasoline, Dandelion, Follow My Way - and proves just how complete and superior a musician he is.

In terms of the film, both the lyrics and melodies complement the rebooting of the Bond character so expertly achieved by Daniel Craig, hinting at the story ahead, the character and his background.

I don't buy singles but i'm buying this one.

I waited 13 days to receive this book, and was then finished reading it after a day and a half. it was too easy to read, i found myself on autopilot, as the formula was very 'standard' - too many storylines from the past were reused, and to be honest Luke Skywalker's seeming paralysis in decision making, and Jacen Solo's persistence in questioning everything anyone does without ever taking sides is becoming tedious; after all that has happened you expect some sort of direction… Read more
