Each person is brought to life very quickly, with a very honest human quality, never given an ability or set of circumstances that the every day person could not deal with.
Its this approach that makes all his books grab you from the first page to the last.
Ellie Quin is no exception, i have to say that i draw some comparisons with "The Ballad of Halo Jones" the 2000ad classic tale, but don't let that put you off, its not a classic for no reason, its one of their iconic tales. But Alex does take the concept in a different direction.
Some might wonder if this is a tale for teens? or just girls. But I'm a 40 year old man and i enjoyed it very much....(does that say more about me or the book...i leave that to you).
I give you none of the story, as its too easy to give spoilers... but suffice to say its worth a download (its free for the next few days, and then still only £1.99 after that..Read more ›
Okay, I am not one for reviewing in Amazon that often, so the fact I am rushing to review Ellie Quin says something. I am tempted to gush. Instead I am going to try and explain why I am loving this book so much.
Many years ago I used to read a British comic called 2000AD, home of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog and co. One of the comic strips I most enjoyed was `The Ballad of Halo Jones' the story of an ordinary girl who wants to `get out'. It was written by Alan (Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell) Moore as was enchanting. Totally different to most of the stories in 2000AD at the time and I loved it. I kinda fell in love with Halo Jones a little bit.
Eventually I grew up and started reading Heinlein, Niven, Clarke and all the other sci-fi greats.
Now, in my 40's I have kids of my own and my eldest is a Time Riders fan. I like to read some of the boks my kids read so we can talk about them. I loved the Time Riders., so when I found out Alex Scarrow wrote more adult books I had to try them out. It is fair to say I am a Scarrow fan.
Then came Ellie Quin.
I bought the first instalment yesterday. I just finished reading the third, and I am gutted I am going to have to wait for the next part.
First the inevitable comparison.
Yes, Ellie Quin is a similar concept to Halo Jones. The universe is similar, the themes are simila, the fact Ellie meets a young confident woman to help her and inspire her. A lot of it feels similar. But that's about it. In the same way that Max begins his journey in Starman Jones (Heinlein), or Paksennarion leaves her home in Sheepfarmer's Daighter (Elizabeth Moon). But5 once her journey begins things are different. Her journey is unique.Read more ›
