5.0 out of 5 stars So good., 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simply the best book I have ever read. Fascinating and terrifying at the same time. I was engaged straight from the beginning. I would recommend this novel to anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea but terrible execution, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Redshirts (Kindle Edition)
I had high hopes for this book, having seen it was on a few 'Best of..' lists. Certainly the premise appealed to me as a fan of Sci-Fi shows and Star Trek in particular. Sadly it was a poor book. It is written almost entirely in dialogue, with each speech bubble being followed by a 'said SO-AND-SO.' After a while that gets really irritating.

'Shall we go down here' said Bill
'Let's' said Tom
'I don't know what we'll find' said Bill
'Neither do I' said Tom.

Also I found the characters to be poorly developed. They were all a bit snarky with no real defining features beyond perhaps their sex. (the female character being the only one really to have her sexuality brought into it).

I almost didn't finish it but decided in the end to push on through. It wasn't worth it.
