A very good read, with some twisits and turns, action and intersting use a different kind of planet
on 14 March 2017
I was a little worried that this might be badly written, and had rather low hopes for it. However, this was not the case – very good use of an odd planet (no spoiler here) along with good characterisation and a decent plot line. I’d say it ranks with the Scifi books of Harry Harrison (Stainless Steel Rat and Deathworld spring to mind). We get some understanding of the person who is Johnny Alpha, but it’s the other mutants who make for interesting reading. Some fun along the way too, along with the no-nonsense Johnny getting things done.
Faithful to the comic character, while ensuring that it works as a very readable book; it was a book I did not want to put down. So, highly recommended for the Stront fans, but also for anyone wanting to read a decent scifi book, with lots of action and unusual planets / beings.
