3.0 out of 5 stars A juvenile, but fun read, 3 Feb 2005
By 
Mark E. Cooper "Fantasybooks" (STANFORD-LE-HOPE, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Warp Speed (Hardcover)
Warp speed is written in the style of the golden age of science fiction -- back when authors like Heinlein, E. Doc Smith, and Robert Ludlum were hammering at their keyboards producing stories that would later become firm favourites of millions of readers.
Warp Speed has been touted as reminiscent of Ludlum's work. Maybe so, but is Warp Speed as good? No. That's not to say it isn't a fun read because it is. BUT things happen in Warp Speed that frankly stretch believability beyond the breaking point. The hero always comes up with a MacGyver-like fix in the nick of time -- like flying an underground base into space and using it as a spaceship/weapon to save the day.
Overall, a fun book but definitely in the light reading class.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in so many ways., 12 Mar 2013
This review is from: Warp Speed (Mass Market Paperback)
It's light reading for the first hundred pages.
Somewhere around half way through it turns into a farce.
Why Colorado? Why not deploy more weapons and use them all at once?
How does a virus manage to "evolve" with that gizmo installed?

How stupid does the author think the Chinese leadership are?
Why does the US use suicide bombers when they have plenty of cruise missiles?

I admit, this book leaves me asking many questions. Most of them start with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

1.0 out of 5 stars good grief!!!, 6 May 2008
By 
This review is from: Warp Speed (Mass Market Paperback)
Yes, action there is. And had the author kept his writing in light style all the way, it might have been nice. But trying to brainwash readers to his immature political views while at it - sorry - really spoiled it for me. Chinese are the evil ones, Russians can be made friends and all the bad things in America have been caused by the democrats. Right. George W Bush is a saint...

And the worst part is that those propaganda pieces are so boring...

Promise, but not delivered. Not worth the time or money.
