Akte X. Im Höllenfeuer. Die Unheimlichen Fälle Des Fbi (X-Files #3)
Since this is a death on Federal property, Mulder and Scully are hastily called in. As FBI agents who specialize in unexplained phenomena, they are the investigators of The X-Files, strange and inexplicable cases which are also mysteries that the FBI doesn't wa...more
Be the first to ask a question about Akte X. Im Höllenfeuer. Die Unheimlichen Fälle Des Fbi
Está mejor escrito y mejor detallado que los anteriores libros de X Files, las caracterizaciones de Mulder y Scully también están mejor hechas. Se nota que por lo menos Anderson vio capítulos de la serie e hizo investigación. Lástima que inventó algunas cosas sobre el background de Scully que no me gustaron. (view spoiler)[ Como que en su juventud fue activista y que tiene una oficina propia, cuando en la serie nunca nos dan a entender algo así. (hide spoiler)] Esta vez por suerte tampoco hay ...more
Τρίτο αυτοτελές μυθιστόρημα της σειράς X-Files, πρώτο που συγγραφέας είναι ο γνωστός στο είδος της επιστημονικής φαντασίας και του Φανταστικού, Κέβιν Τζ. Άντερσον (π.χ. The Saga of Seven Suns, μυθιστορήματα Star Wars κλπ). Μου φάνηκε αρκετά καλύτερο των δυο προηγούμενων βιβλίων, πιο καλογραμμένο και σίγουρα πιο χορταστικό. Φυσικά θα πρέπει κανείς να μην σκεφτεί και πολύ κατά πόσο στέκουν όλα αυτά τα υπερφυσικά και κουλά γεγονότα της ιστορίας, για να απολαύσει την ιστορία.

Kevin J. Anderson's first X-Files fan fiction novel opens with a nuclear scientist receiving a strange message and a sample of black powder, before being mysteriously burned to a husk in an apparent freak accident, but when Mulder and Scully start investigating three more victims also die in the same manner, and none seem obviously connected.
The whole story leads them to secretive nuclear tests, and ends in an epic climactic ...more
In this third X-Files book, Kevin J. Anderson does a great job of nailing Mulder's sense of humor. Scully is still quite the skeptic in this book, as it was written only two years after the series began. Skinner is quite cutting in his speech, as he has not yet become friends of Mulder and Scully.
The story I feel is starting to feel a little more grander than the previous instalments and now it is starting to finally out growing its weekly TV slot. This is an episode I think they would struggle to fit in to a conventional show (I always feel that a book should be something more than the show. Pages do not cost as ...more
Read by Gillian Anderson
So, how can I say this succinctly and clearly?
The abridged audiobook of The X-Files: Ground Zero is not good. It is bad. It is not well read. It has few of the best qualities of the TV show.
Read by Gillian Anderson, the abridged audiobook clocks in at about 3 hours and read unenthusiastically by Gillian Anderson. One of the reasons I picked this one up is that I figured she'd read it well. It says it was recorded in Vancouver in ...more
There is the engineer/nuclear physicist who doesn't know how an internal combustion engine or microwave oven works. UC Berkeley, a state school, is described as having a high tuition cost (one can argue whether or not $1200/year would have been exorbitant, but it is about 11% of what Harvard would have been charging at the time). The USS Dallas is a Spruance class destroyer (no Spruance class ships are named after American cities) in a novel that in ...more
There are unfortunately some weaknesses to the book. Mulder feels like a one trick punch line spewing jackass and d ...more
the writing isn't anything spectacular. but the plot is compelling.
the differences between TV Scully and Mulder v. novel Scully and Mulder offer some high laughs.
I will probably seek out the other books.
because I want to believe.
Anyone who enjoys supernatural stories as well as two people who work so well together in spite of their differences as to the reasons for explanations for why things happen. Makes very enjoyable reading.
As I've said before in my Star Wars days. K.J.A. can create interesting characters. He just doesn't seem to know what to do with them. In Ground Zero, he kills them all off...one of those, "everyone else died, but Mulder and Scully made it, so ...more
This is the only X-Files based book I have read. It was even better than the tv series of which I was an avid fan. This book was like the original shows without all the space encounters cancer man and bees. It was hard science fiction with paranormal supernatural tones. It built to a very high climax without a drop off of any kind and left you with a forceful whew when you realized you were finished. Great job.
