Was it written by a 15 year boy?
on 15 March 2014
To make things clear from the start, I only read 8% of this book and that was enough. Some of you may want to not bother reading the rest of my review as I am perfectly aware that I probably don't have the right to say anything on this book.
The book is unnecessarily VERY violent, lots of people being killed in horribly descriptive ways - why do that?
The romance is terribly done, the women come across as "very easy" - just like real life - NOT !!!!
It is quite difficult to follow, it flashes from one scene to the next and then back again to the original one and then to the other one and so forth...Also it goes 40 years back in time, then 20 years and then 5 years....I think. This is in relation to year zero (where the book begins) - I think? Why make it so very in sequential? Is the author trying to make the read a challenge?
Is the main character Havoc Human or Alien? He is described as 'devilish' in appearance in parts yet having normal arms, hands and legs in others. I am sure this would become clearer if I had read more than 8% of the book but the fact that I was confused with this so early on put me right off as well. As someone else has already pointed out in previous reviews Havoc isn't actually that likeable either. Once you've read 2% into the book, you will know what I mean.
The book reads like it was written by a school boy fantasising an alternative reality he would rather be in.
No doubt this scathing review will attract equally scathing comments...
