Format: Hardcover
Having read and enjoyed David Lindsley's first book, "Far Point", I was keen to read his next book, "The Darkfall Switch". I was not disappointed: it was an excellent follow-up to "Far Point". Although an engineer by profession, David was able to relay the problem presented to the main character, Dan Foster, in layman's terms and, coupled with the intrigue, the scene was set for a really good read.

It has the insight that comes from the author's background in the power industry, but, don't imagine for one moment that it is dull. Quite the opposite. This is a great read that reminded me of when, years ago, I read John Grisham's 'The Firm'. A film, one day?

An engineer David lindsley may be, but a writer he is not. I found this book to be terribly written, with infuriatingly unlikeable characters, poorly constructed scenes and dialogue (both of which were mostly unrealistic), and a complete lack of suspense - even during scenes of 'high peril'.

There is the basis here for a cracking story however, and being an engineering student I found the engineering aspect interesting. But being well informed about the subject matter does not neccessarily make a good read, as this book proves. It had me grinding my teeth at several points, and even getting to the end did not make wading through the lazy prose worthwhile. If this has been a physical copy I would have thrown it in the bin, something I have only ever done once before. Instead i went looking for the delete option.

Initiate Darkfall Switch?

This is one of those books that you read and then think... This could actually happen. An English engineer, his fiancée, and a young hacker playing on his computer generate a thriller worth read g from start to finish.

Global conspiracy and international corruption are blended and bound together when the engineer sets out to find the real reason behind the London blackouts that subsequently cause his fiancée's death

At first the subject (electricity generation) seemed a little odd but as I got further into the book I could see what he was getting at - so quite thought provoking. the book is well written, easy to read and kept my interest until the very end - which is all I want from this type of book.
