Product Description

Synopsis

On the trail of a lost cargo of illegal bio-weapons, Judge Dredd sets foot aboard the Cityship Sargasso, a vast, raft-like agglomeration of ancient toxic waste tankers loaded with stateless refugees from warzones around the world. By 2125AD the cityships have become home to large populations of mutants and scavengers. So when the law comes on board, Dredd finds himself as an unwelcome guest - but so is the bio-weapon that is cutting a swathe through the ship's population. Picked up by one of the Sargasso's fleet of scavenger ships, the bio-weapon has emerged from stasis and has set about fulfilling its single pre-programmed function: to destroy all in its path!

Enjoyable read. The story has three threads to it, first the warchild plot,second Dredd and the other mega city judges working with the cityship crew,who for the most part are mutants and thirdly Dredd,another street judge,a tech judge and a special justice squad judge interactions with each other. I feel that all the threads come together to make a good story. I would like to see the glossary at the front of the book. As this would help readers new to the world of Dredd ,understand some of the terms mentioned in the story. As a long standing fan of Judge Dredd I know most of the terms used in the story.

This was a great story set away from the big meg, it explores the realm of the black Atlantic city ships, dress is a little mellow just this once and you get the impression he feels for the people on board the story never slows and the pace is spot on. Couple of interesting characters are explored in detail and flushed out well.

A good story. Plenty of action and suspense. Was a little slow to get going but when it did... I couldn't put it down. Set outside Mega City One on a floating city of vessels.

Well worth a read.

Having recently rediscovered a nostalgic affection for all things Dredd in light of the upcoming movie, I have read a couple of the novels available on the kindle for ol' stony face himself. This one was surprisingly the most enjoyable.

Not really knowing what to expect from the novels in terms of quality, I've read some good and some not so, but i found 'The Black Atlantic' to be easily the most entertaining. Reading like an action movie plot, with tons of frenetic incident, what really struck me were the little things which just added to the story, and elevated it into 'bloody good read status'.

Set on a city ship on the black atlantic, details of life in this environment unfold as does the nightmare of combatting a foe who seems totally designed for fighting. By adding just enough insight into the wider cast of characters to make you care enough about what happens to them, and by creating a almost 'predator-like' situation of cat and mouse for our protagonists to deal with, the authors craft a story which is part suspense/scifi/horror story,with Dredd the immovable object in the middle of it all.

The story unfolds into increasing degrees of calamity resulting in a truly heroic turn by Dredd and all in all, i found the book fun, thrilling and a really good take on Dredd as literally a fish out of water, adrift on enemy ground, fighting a foe he has no right to beat but utterly unmoved by any of the obstacles in his way.

If you like Dredd, you'll love this. a rip-roaring adventure which creates a scenario whih gets worse by the page is juxtaposed nicely by some interesting character development, with some great insights on Dredd, as seen through the eyes of those around him.

This was 2nd Dredd novel I read - or attempted to read, as I rapidly desisted from the effort. After Michael Carroll's 'Year One', I was encouraged by the quality of that book to go another step into an area of Sci-Fi fiction I had previously remained clear of.

However, 'Black Atlantic' was disappointing. Firstly, 'Suspension of Disbelief' is not achieved. The writing goes beyond what is necessary in its graphic descriptions, and is clumsy in its articulation, using an immature literary style to bludgeon the reader. I'm not offended by pulp fiction 'per se', enjoying the likes of Mickey Spillane: however, this is in my view poor quality fare!
