This is another author that is fairly new to me, but one that I will go back to. The books are too short, but they are advertised as such so no great shock. The writing is intelligent and fast paced with a taste of humour that I like.

I think this is the one with the spider island. Short but powerful and very clever. Worth reading in the 5 minute wait between buses.

Didn't know how short it was when I bought it. Good read but done in an hour so bit annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction Meets Human Struggle. 4 April 2011
By Stephanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of Mr. Cantrell's books, and this book is no exception. I did not realize until I was reading this book that it is a sequel of sorts to "The Human Legacy Project," which I had not yet read. "Venom" is easy to follow and understand without having read HLP, however, after going back and reading HLP, I think it adds extra depth to the story.

"Human Legacy Project" is a true work of science fiction, more about the technology than the characters, while "Venom" takes the same technology and universe, and weaves it deftly among the complex development of the characters. Technophiles would probably prefer HLP, but for those readers looking for human struggle, "Venom" is a window into humanity.

Like all of Cantrell's works, the story ends abruptly. Although my first reaction is annoyance, because his books keep me wanting to turn the page, this device adds realism. After all, we never know what will come next in our own stories, which never have resolutions. Somehow, I get the feeling that a lot of his meaning would be lost if he were to write even one more page.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel to HLP 21 Nov. 2011
By Theodore R. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a pretty compelling sequel for the Human Legacy Project, which probably should be made more clear in the description.

This dark, dystopian novella goes deeper into the origins of the People's Party. Of Cantrell's works, it does a good job of character development. The ending doesn't feel nearly as rushed as his others and there's a good plot line.

I'd recommend this, together with the HLP, for a nice weekend read. Hopefully, there'll be a 3rd one covering what happens afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious undertones 24 Aug. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading Containment, I picked up the rest of Cantrell's offerings. This, more than the others, was interesting. It had a number of undertones. Being so short, few are developed and left to the reader to ponder afterwards. This was my third read by Cantrell and I wish that I had read it later as I feel with some more stories under my belt I could have got more out of it in one pass.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, highly recommend this author! 16 Jun. 2013
By EdG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this short read! As far as I am aware, Containment is this author's only full length novel, and while I thoroughly enjoyed it I find his shorter stories are far superior. This book is a sequel of sorts to the Human Lagacy Project, another short story by the author. Although I wouldn't call it a sequel in the strict sense, the story revolves around the same basic premise. I won't spoil it for anyone but for the sake of this review I would suggest reading both stories to fully appreciate them both. I really hope the author is planning on publishing several more on this story line!
As for this installment, the book is well written and like his other short stories, the author dispenses with the pointless character over-development and background detail that is unnecessary. He gets straight to the point and provides enough information to avoid confusion yet is sufficiently vague to allow the reader to come to their own conclusions. all characters are believable and the story is the conspiracy theorist's ideal read.....plausible yet that bit far fetched to avoid instant agreement. Enjoy the read and I hope there are at least a few more!
4.0 out of 5 stars Venom by Christian Cantrell 7 Sept. 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a follow up novella to "Humam Legacy Project," the protagonists come together with a further telling of this moody dystopian series. At times overwhelmingly dark the novel takes us further down the road of a society that has reached its zenith and is now devouring itself from within.

Each of the protagonists, with core beliefs in his or her own vision of the future, find themselves only a cog in a system that has now taken on a life of its own. Coming together to try to save what is left they must set aside differences in philosophy, class and political differences in a rush to control and limit technical advances that may bring what little is left to an end.

Beautifully written with finesse and style "Venon" is realistic and frightening in its vision of a possible future.
