2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 28 April 2011
This review is from: Origin (Kindle Edition)
It's not surprising that this was rejected by numerous publishing houses. You have to suspend a fair amount of logical thought for Sci Fi stories, but to have so called scientists behaving in such an idiotic and illogical manner is beyond any sort of credibility. "What harm could it do to let the creature out of its call to access the web on our Kray computer" anyone? You really want these idiots to be killed. A high security facility costing millions which doesn't have constant surveillance of its only inmate? An entrance hatch (not monitored)DIRECTLY into the cell which only needed to be the size of a sheep but was actually big enough for the huge creature to get through? The list goes on. The constant padding of pages of technical/theological explanations which have no plot relevance finally got too much for me. I gave up around the part where Race (supposedly in charge) was dancing with his newly cured wife (don't ask) while the creature was ripping apart the absurdly two dimensional priest and rabbi. This was just after the doctor had received her replacement baby from the creature (made out of a sheep). Oh dear. Only scraped two stars because it was cheap.

J A Konrath is the King of self publishing and Ebooks and has influenced Barry Eisler the best selling US novelist to go a similar route. Barry recently turned down a USD500,000 advance to do likewise. Read Konrath's Blog and Website for the background.

This book like his others is available hard copy and audio in the US.
