Poor science fiction,
This review is from: Bugz :Contact (Book Zero): 1 (Hardcover)
There have been many exciting science fiction writers to such as HG Wells, Arthur C Clarke, Douglas Adams, Steve Gallagher, and Iain Banks. I therefore had high hopes for this novel written by David Jackson. Unfortunately it failed to impress me. A problem with science fiction, is that often the fantastic ideas and theories contained within a book overtake characterisation. In this novel, the central characters, The Ashcroft's seem one dimensional. Set in 2042 on Earth suffering food shortages, we find that at the start of time, the universe was dominated by particles called Bugz. These bugz interact with humans, but unfortunately there are also evil bugz.
Not a recommended book,
