4.0 out of 5 stars Ok but a great ending, 23 May 2011
This review is from: The Flight of the Eisenstein (The Horus Heresy) (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm not an avid book reader, so it can take me a long time to read anyway, but this one I would say took longer than I was expecting. I's say it's split into two. The first half is basically repeating the inevitable story of Horus going bad boy, from the perspective of Garro et al. The surprise is lost and it feels to me, that the writer obviously is restricted in his creativity by having to make sure he gets it right (otherwise die-hard readers would pound him dry for making too many deviations from the previous story). Once the inevitable outcome happens, and it gets back to were Galaxy In Flames finishes, that's when the story blooms. It seems to me, that's where the writer(s) really excels; creativity.
To sum up: it took me two months to read the first part, and then two days to read the second part. Technically I haven't finished it, as I still have the last chapter to go, but to me the story in this book has kind of ended, and now it's just the chaining storyline for the next book.
I would have given it a three star, but then the last part was so gripping for me, that I had to bulk it up.
