Very entertaining nonsense
on 24 February 2012
This has been on my watch list for some time now and I was both grateful and delighted that my friend Judy sent the trilogy all the way from the US.
A hard book to describe and review, it's a fast paced thriller with a strong SF theme running throughout. But it is also a bit bonkers and you really have to suspend belief as the author throws all sorts of weird ideas and concepts into the mix. In essence there is a rip through to `somewhere else' through which artefacts with a range of abilities are dropped through. The good guys are protecting them for the good of mankind and the bad guys want them for different reasons. Although the concepts here are over the top, they are also inventive and there are some great ideas behind them - it's nonsense but great fun and provided you approach the book with the right mind-set this is hugely enjoyable.
