Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Control Point (Shadow Ops) (Paperback)
This is an action packed book and some of the visuals are great. I think that it could form the basis of a good movie. Problems with the book are;
- back story of the conflict in 'the source' not explained very well
- poorly written in places. It can be hard to follow what is going on. On occasion it appears as if the author has mixed up the powers of the characters.
- hard to feel much sympathy with the main character. Through his idiocy lots of people get killed.
- As somebody else pointed out, generally poor character development.
It is also an extremely violent book which might make it difficult to adapt as a movie for an appropriate market.
All that said, quite an easy and enjoyable read if you are into this kind of thing.
