There was very little action. The plot focused on Arlene and Albert, and I didn't particularly like the way either one was portrayed in this novel. And most irritatingly, the novel was full of self-indulgent nerd references that take the reader completely out of the narrative, because why would marines in an apocalyptic world fighting for survival be making constant literary and film references? They lost me the moment Albert started talking about something in Star Trek. The militant Mormon at h ...more

After saving the world twice, the fight continues for Flynn “Fly” Taggart and Arlene Sanders!

Hugh and Linaweaver do a lot of things right with the series. As an obvious fan of the franchise since childhood, I will do my best to highlight the best aspects of the novel. Despite my opinions, this review is redundant if you have not yet enjoyed the first two novels of the Doom series, which are far superior to the last two books: Knee-Deep in the Dead and Hell on Earth.

Based on the video game series, but only as a jumping off point (which makes sense since the video game had an extremely simple plot).

Rather than "demons" they're aliens, and the whole situation of Earth is actually a very small conflict, almost insignificant to a greater multi-galaxy war. Interesting idea.

I was probably too young to read it at the time, but it did inspire me to be able to read more complex books.

The third book in the series. Flynn, Arlene, Albert and Jill have made it to Hawaii, where those humans that haven't started working with the aliens, are planning a resistance. When a message comes through the gate from a different set of aliens, ones claiming to be enemies of the 'Freds', Fly and Arlene have to go back to the moons of Mars, fight there way through the base and enter the gates on a possible suicide mission to contact potential allies.

This one wasn't as good the as the previous

I'm not a fan of first-person, and writing from three or four characters' perspectives in this way is messy and confusing. I had a lot of trouble realizing which character I was following in a given scene.
Still an enjoyable read, however I feel this book is where the series starts to go off on a bit of a strange tangent from the source materials.

You cannot tell a story about A and B in the first two books, and then unveil a whole new alphaben in the third. The story seemed farfetched and written 'due to demand'.

The humoristic style of writing persists, though, and it is still a fun read, despite not being very mind-catching.
I have spent so many hours on the video game I was wondering what the background story may be. Was not even aware there were books on doom. Thanks to ebay I bought the lot cheap. Usually I don't read to much science fiction. I thought they were ok. Books 1 and 2 kind of explained what happen in the game. # and 4 took it much further. Not a bad light read.

Where did it all go wrong. Right here. This abomination of a story should have ended at the last book, yet here we are with a whole bunch of tripe that they feel needs to be extended. A very poor work.
