Format: Mass Market Paperback
Started with Gregg's later work, so decide to read him from the beginning.
His 1st book The Tower was quite good, but the story line in this book is so ridiculous it just has to be made into a B movie.
Navy Seals loosing all their ammo????
Boxes and boxes of Dynamite and still 4 more die?

However, some of the characters are good, if obviously stereotypical.
Could have been so much better.
I gave it three stars because of the main character and and if you read it solely through her eyes, I suppose it's not a complete waste of time.
This book annoyed and frustrated me, perhaps that was the objective?

I was torn between giving this book 3 or 4 stars. I think it starts out kind of slow and a better description of the "Initial Incident" would have gone a long way in explaining why the group needed to go to the island. But the book did pick up and by the time I finished it and I really enjoyed it.
