4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Romp Through The Assimilated Territories, 8 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Doomsday Manuscript (Professor Bernice Summerfield) (Paperback)
Well, I'm a little bemused by the previous reviews, in which Justin Richards's novel didn't go down well at all, as I found 'The Doomsday Manuscript' to be an entertaining - if not very original - read.
Bernice sets out on a quest to piece together the two halves of the Doomsday Manuscript, a document written four centuries ago by the members of an ill-fated archaeological expedition to the Lost Tomb of Rablev on the planet Kasagrad. Unfortunately, Kasagrad is in the centre of the Assimilated Territories of a hostile military power known the Fifth Axis. Oops.
On her way to the Lost Tomb, Bernice finds herself in various dangerous situations: dogged by a ruthless James-Bond-esque Fifth Axis assassin replete with artificial hand, chased by the remote-controlled gun-toting cameras of a retired holo-vid star, and ducking and weaving between a blockade fleet surrounding Kasagrad. And before her quest for the Lost Tomb is over, Bernice finds out that everything is not as it seems...
A novel full of action, adventure and - this being a Bernice novel - alcohol. An enjoyable 'first' adventure for everyone's favourite twenty-sixth century archaeologist.
