Good book, action too much at times
on 2 December 2013
I save five stars for books that are the best I've read in a while. Sort of an A+.
I enjoyed this book. I usually read sci-fi, but am an environmentalist, so found this book satisfying. I enjoyed the concept the scientists were using -- I thought that was clever. I enjoyed the interaction between the "good" guys. My favorite character was the French doctor, who was always trying to lighten the mood -- and, of course, I can't remember his name! LOL
I found the reading compelling, and had a hard time putting my Kindle down. For those of you who expect every book to be held to the highest standards in the world, this is not for you, but it is fun and interesting reading. And it was over 500 pages. I like long books.
Mr. Rosser, "He LENT backwards to see what was going on." Lent is the past tense of LOAN. The proper word is LEANED.
The things I didn't like. There was at least one misused word in this book. There were also some typos, punctuation errors, but mostly over lookable.
The thing I found tedious about the book was all -- those -- action -- scenes. Oi vey.... I know some people like that kind of thing, it's just not my cuppa. I think either more time could be used developing the story and characters, or the story could be shortened. : ( Other than that, I enjoyed it, and can't wait to read the third book, since I read the second one first!
