Loved it, so much tension and he keeps you guessing right up to the last word. Zoomed up to be one of my favourite Michael Crichton books, though nothing so far has beaten Prey.
Set at the bottom of the ocean this is a scfi thriller, involving a crew of scientists and a possible alien space craft. I wont say anymore apart from I watched the film of this some years ago but had completely forgotten the end when reading the book, rather apt I know :)...more
I really enjoyed this book. Trapped as a house husband Jack, the main character, is pulled into a world of nano technology and strange behaviour.
It hI really enjoyed this book. Trapped as a house husband Jack, the main character, is pulled into a world of nano technology and strange behaviour.
It had a slow start with alot of build up but it steadily got more intriguing. Small hints were mentioned throughout so by the time Jack goes to the lab you are already teaming with theories and questions you want answered. I liked the unnerving attitudes of Julia and Rickey, they gave a real creepy sense to the situation and you never knew whether what they were staying and doing was important or just to mislead you in the plot.
Like most of Michael Crichton books its full of factual research and a lot of explanations to the reader which can weigh down the story a bit. At several points I felt i could have done without the couple of pages of facts and get back to the story, but then again I suppose it made the plot more suspenseful by implying that things like this were not out of the realm of possibility to happen in real life. (Ish)
The ending was good, it left enough hanging that my mind immediately started to make up what could have happened next. But I felt it could definitely have had a sequel....more
I absolutely loved this book! I even had the audio tapes and used to listen to it all the time when i was younger.
Its a story about a young troublemakI absolutely loved this book! I even had the audio tapes and used to listen to it all the time when i was younger.
Its a story about a young troublemaker Meg and her journey to repent for her actions in life. When meg dies unexpectantly her soul is put into limbo, having done both and equal amount of good and bad things in her life. In order to go to heaven Meg must help her last victim, and elderly man Lowrie, who has a wish list of tasks to complete before he dies.
I think this is a really fantastic book, It deals very playfully with the idea of death and the main characters Meg and Lowrie are a wonderful pair. You laugh at their interactions as much as you feel for the characters emotions.
I've always loved Eoin Colfer books but I would definitely recommend this one to anyone.
I think possibly one of my favourite books EVER! I love the Japanese location, the feudal fighting and the storyline itself. The whole series is greatI think possibly one of my favourite books EVER! I love the Japanese location, the feudal fighting and the storyline itself. The whole series is great but the main 3 are the best.
Its a true warrior story starting with a young boy and how he trains himself to be an impossibly strong opponent, set in the backdrop to a wonderfully described ancient Japanese life.
Book 1 of 15 in total, the first in a long series it has a lot to live up to and a lot to accomplish, however it did just that. Daggerspell is probablBook 1 of 15 in total, the first in a long series it has a lot to live up to and a lot to accomplish, however it did just that. Daggerspell is probably one of my favourite books in this series as well as a favourite in general. Set in a sort of celtic time the world Katherine Kerr has created is both detailed and thoroughly real, you can immerse yourself in the culture seamlessly and the way she describes things such as the magic and peoples past lives is wonderfully detailed but still understandable. The plot surrounds the main characters of Nevyn, Jill, Cullyn and Rhodry. The premiss being that the characters fate (wryd) is linked together throughout all their lives, and when they die, they are destined to be reborn in new lives but their souls will still find each other. Its a great concept and one you cant help but get absorbed in as the souls jump from one life to the next, making the same mistakes and improving others. Jill as the main female character is wonderful and everything a strong lead should be, she's smart and strong and she makes the perfect character for all people who prefer female leads. Nevyn as the main male lead is a wonderful character that you cant help but feel sorry for and hope he achieves his dream. Would recommend to any fantasy lover....more
