3.0 out of 5 stars So so....some spoilers, 7 Nov 2012

This review is from: Dead Space - Catalyst (Paperback)
Being a Dead Space fan of the games and having read the first Dead Space novel by the same author I was reasonably confident that this would be good also. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. The first 2/3 of the book are somewhat superfluous going into a relationship between two brothers one of whom is rather odd behaviourally, however, why he has acted oddly all his life is never explained. He kills a politician and ends up in a penal colony on a deserted planet run by the Unitarians, is tortured, becomes odder, retreats into his own mind further and hears the reverse engineered marker talking to him (which is also on the planet in a research facility).....this takes 240 pages or so to get to. The final 120 pages revolves around the outbreak at the facility and prison compound, his brother's arrival to help etc. etc. and is a good exciting read. But then we come to the other major gripe the ending, it just well ends....abruptly....so all in all for me a very disappointing follow up after the first book
