User reviews about this book
I got the sample of this book a few days ago and when I finally got around to reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I bought the whole thing and once I finished it, I bought the rest of the trilogy.
The style of writing is different and that’s what drew me in. It doesn’t hurt that the story itself is intriguing. It’s a dash political thriller with a hint of military action, wrapped up in a sci fi shell that you can’t wait to crack!
No if you’ll excuse me, I have two more books to read!
Can’t put it down
No matter how many problems people see... the fact of the matter is you don’t want to put it down and you have to know what’s next. That’s what makes a good book.
Ending was lacking (spoiler alert)
These books were interesting and the method of relating the story was reasonably effective. However, after a while I became tired reading so much minutiae (e.g, the british parliament meeting). There were some interesting plot twists, but the ending seemed quite contrived, especially if one understands anything about microbiology. Basically, the ending was not unlike the war of the worlds.
I have never really been a fan of largely dialogue based works, and that initially turned me off to the book. But overall, it redeemed itself with intriguing story lines and character interactions. The first book created a lot of potential for the next books. I am interested enough to continue the story.
Great story from start to finish. Highly recommend
Needs a comprehensive edit
Heavy handed repetitive awkward. Clichéd. Characters have no depth. Started skimming less than halfway thru and was able to keep the Plot line with no problems just to see what happened. Cool idea. Too bad.
Just tried it on a whim and found it quite enjoyable. Definitely a page-turner, as they say. Different sort of storytelling device, which worked for me. It's a story told from narrow POVs but it's also about something very big. Check out a sample.
