Bolin knows how to use time and place as characters themselves.

John Bolin's description in the Amazon Kindle Store caught my attention in the first sentence. I got the ebook when it was free and I'm so glad I did.

Bolin's tale, in The Eden Project, had me riveted from the first page. He knows how to use time and place as characters themselves. His descriptions of the jungle, alive and threatening, is nothing short of talented. Not many writers are able to make a place feel like a member of a team
I picked this up for free on Amazon and it was a really good book. It took a few chapters before it drew me in but it was worth the wait. There are several suspenseful moments and the author ends the book well. This is the first in a series so there are a few questions left unanswered but still in spite of that, the book ends on a very solid note. The book details some work with eugenics, dna and nanotechnology that is scary simply because the technology is probably already in place to attempt m ...more
I hate to give any book that captured my attention 2 stars but the description "it was ok" describes this to a T. I got this book as a free read on my Kindle. It had an interesting premise - kind of Michael Crichton or Michael Palmer - esque. However, i just didn't live up to my expectations.

A group of Army guys have banded together to produce a reality show in the jungle and get involved in finding a missing Amazon tribe, saving an indian girl who has an unknown virus, and ultimately saving the
If you want a semi- good jungle adventure book then this one was ok. I feel that the author still has alot of growing to do. He lacks details that is needed to make the story clearer and tends to confuse themes of his books. In other words it seemed he couldn't make up his mind to make it a techno thriller book or a religious thriller book. Other than that it was ok. He's a new author from what I can tell so I'll keep him in mind for a future book.

This book was really interesting and action packed. Because this is the first Peter Zachary adventure I've read, I could have used a little more character building. Although the theme has been used by many authors, the plot of this story was very compelling. I initially started this book to pass an hour in the sun, only to end up glued to my Kindle and unable to put it down. Great story and it most definitely made me a fan!

It seems that the author went through a checklist of cliches to make sure he wouldn't miss any. Beautiful female scientist. Macho male soldier. Innocent child at risk. Lots and lots of ridiculous action sequences. Over-the-top escapes. Saving the world. Yup, I think he got most of them.

Really liked this book even though there were several OVER descriptive scenes in it that I found myself skipping. However, even with skipping parts I was able to get the plot of the story. Would like to read more of this author. He is first for me.
Exciting thriller without all the gore. Very real and scary scientific procedures being tested. Get attached to the "good guys" and really dislike the "bad guys". Hope he writes more books like this.

This book really drew me in. Great characters, plot...was disappointed when it ended. If you loved LOST you're going to enjoy this novel!

Slow start, I've almost left the book at some point. Good action starts at the middle and turns it to a easy read.
Michael Crichton meets Robin Cook. Fun, easy summer read.

It was okay unless you like this kind of writing.
