I've always been intrigued as to how this book would play out as i'm a big fan of the resident evil games and code:veronica is my favourite by far.
To me, it played out perfectly in book form. The suspense, horror, and even the romance was fantastically described.
It was also interesting seeing how they replaced some of the puzzles that would have dragged on in a book.

Character wise i couldn't have asked for better. Claire and Steve were portrayed very accurately and it was very easy imagining sce

The sixth installment, and final book in the series, takes place during the video game of the same name. Claire Redfield, brother of former S.T.A.R.S. member Chris Redfield of RE 1/Umbrella Conspiracy, is now on the hunt for clues as to where Chris Redfield is. After the events of RE 2, she finds out that Chris has gone to Europe to take on the umbrella Corporation directly with other former S.T.A.R.S. members. During her investigation, in Paris, Claire is captured and sent to Rockfort Island. C ...more

The final book written by S.D Perry in the Resident Evil series. While the series has continued on in game format it seems no more books will be hitting shelves as these have only just returned to print after a time of being quite hard to find.

The opening was dog awful. For the longest time no real explanation was given as to how the characters you were following had gotten into the situation they found themselves and I found myself struggling to keep an interest.
Eventually things settle down a

Coming into this as a fan of the video games, I was not surprised to find it thoroughly interesting. The characters were spot-on, and the little added details to the story kept things enjoyable without feeling like gaming deja vu. However, if you haven't touched a Resident Evil game before, I wouldn't suggest reading this as a standalone. The antogonists may come off as clunky, and the memories of their past will leave you scratching your head. Give the games, or previous books, a once-over befo ...more

Resident Evil: Code Veronica
4.5/5 stars
Okay so I just wrote a long review of this book already and goodreads deleted it. So here we go again.

I always loved the creepy but insanely original tale that was crafted in CVX with the Ashford twins. And Claire looking for Chris. And the fucking dreamboat that is Steve Burnside.

Now I haven't played it myself. But I did play the mode of the game that was included in The Darkside Chronicles. And seen many gameplays of the original, and I can honestly say
This is the sixth book I've read in the series.

I'm not a die hard fan of this franchise, but I do like me some coperate evildoers and the zombie stuffs was weirdly fascinating so I kept coming back for more. I'm trying to enjoy this series from the viewpoint of non-fans.

Anyway, it's enjoyable enough. One thing's been nagging at me though... Why every bad guy in the series has to be psychos? I mean, I understand you have to be a bit crazy to do the things they did in here, but normal people also

"Code: Veronica is S.D. Perry's novelization of the video game Resident Evil: Code Veronica and is based off the incidents that occur on the island with Claire Redfield as she searches for her missing brother Chris Redfield.

This novel, as well as the video game itself, is a very special filler or should I say a walk down memory lane through the history of the Umbrella Corporation. I myself actually need to finish this game before I can continue on since I haven't finished this game but the novel

S. D. Perry, Code: Veronica (Pocket, 2001)

Perry's series of novels based (often loosely) on the Resident Evil games reaches its penultimate volume and rounds in on itself; for the first time in a while, we have a book focusing on Claire and Chris Redfield and getting back to game mechanics and puzzles (though the puzzles are quite glossed-over here, and whether or not you find that a good thing is something only you can decide).

In this episode, Claire's been kidnapped and taken to a small Umbre

I really loved this book. I guess it was because I'm a huge Resident Evil fan and Claire Redfield is one of my favorite characters from the franchise. It's tough to make readers scared from written words, when they are coming from the video game experience, but SD Perry did an amazing job with setting the tone. It was fun to read the inner monologues experienced by Claire rather than transferring my own emotions to her when playing the video game.
This isn't a long review just a few words on what's wrong with this book. Like I enjoy this series for it being a cheesy adaptation, but sooooo much is missing from this book. And I know it warns about continuity errors in the beginning, but this is by the far worst as towards the end majority of the story line is missing. Given that this is the last book of the series (I think) and the other adapted books didn't have such huge chunks missing this is really unacceptable. Also because of that the ...more

I thought this book was absolutely amazing, but maybe that's biased because I have been a huge fan of the Resident Evil games since I was little. I could picture each part that was happening in my head, and I loved the way it went from main character to main character. Excellent book!

I love the Resident Evil video game series with a passion I've shown for little else, and when I learned there were books of the franchise, I sought them out immediately. Some of these books have been far better than others, especially Nemesis. Code: Veronica, however, was difficult for me to trudge through. Perhaps it could have been better if the author had had a readily available thesaurus, as the same adjectives seem to be used relentlessly in succession. Nonetheless, I can't bring myself to ...more
Like this book a lot being a big RE fan and gamer

I enjoyed this whole series and wish they would of made the movies after the games and the books SD Perry wrote . Hope she writes some more in the series .

This instalment seemed quickly written and haphazardly done.

The droll love interest storyline grows very tiresome and I'm glad to see the end of this series.

Claire is written weakly in these books. She's supposed to be hard ass!

i read these books many years ago and since then have lost them, therefore I am giving them a score based on my original reading and not one that i would necessary hold if I read them today.

Una historia muy por fuera de la saga, con mucha información poco relevante y sin el factor suspenso que debe tener como fundamento esta saga.

This book is a bit of a horrific novel, but keeps you interested. This book is part of a series that features seven books. The plot in this book is so wonderful because it really keeps you interested. For example, on page one hundred forty-two on the last paragraph, Steve (a young adult who plays an important role in the book)killed his father because he was infected with the virus that turned him into a mindless zombie. Once the deed was done, Steve became pretty scarred for life. This is only ...more

4.5 STARS.
Wesker has come to play! I'm game... ;) But this is by far the weirdest, gory though it didn't include the puzzles in the first half... but it gets one star for Wesker!

Out of all of the novels based on the video game series (not including the two original stories), this is my favorite. In my opinion it was one of the darkest games of the series and that holds true in the novelization. The suspense is beautiful and the plot is thick with curious intrigue. The panic and disbelief that the characters exhibit in the game come to life as you can read about each and every single thought that crosses their minds. I read this novel quicker then the others because I wa ...more

Not he strongest RE book in the series, but I think that's because the game wasn't the strongest in the game series.
I still loved this.

Review menyusul.

I have never been more unsure of how to feel about a book before; part of me wants to snuggle it and part of me wants to burn it.

I think I'm going to have to come back to this review after some more thought, because at the moment my feelings for this book can only be properly expressed through noises.

Actually 2.5 stars. It was just alright. I don't know, but it seemed like all the zombies and B.O.W.s were too easily dispatched and things just raced from one thing to another. The final fights were especially unbelievable, in a bad way.

Good read but took awhile to become interesting. the main villain was fun, psycho was a good twist for the series. One more and the series is complete. Bitter sweet.
