4.0 out of 5 stars Top of the Pulps ..., 13 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Invasion (Extended Version) (Kindle Edition)
An eerie green snow heralds the end of the world, Sci-Fi B-Movie style. After the snow turns plant life - and human beings for that matter - to slurry, the creatures come. Small, insect-like creatures that are designed for purpose yet produce carnage and destruction. They are but the first wave, and there is a tide coming. As the evolution of mankinds downfall proceeds a small band of survivors come to terms with an end to life as they know it, and try to find something to save.

Meikle's tale is a wonderful homage to 50's & 60's sci-fi. Think The Day the Earth Stood Still. Think Day of the Triffids. Think of all the movies that we still secretly pine for in this souless CGI, sparkly vampire-obsessed world. But then do something slightly off the wall. Add characters that demand that we care for them, forcing us to cheer their cause as they battle to survive in a world gone to hell. And intersperse this with some heady action set-pieces. Oh, and graphic violence. Yes, it's all there and I consumed it with the verve of Meikle's invading alien hoardes.
