As expected the first novel in the trilogy went much further than the movie. Taking place on a global scale, instead of just one city, Logan is quick to reject the concept of sleep. Now, aiding a runner, Jessica, they set out on a sprint to Sanctuary. The story is fast paced and ruthless, they are barely able to stay one step ahead of their pursuers as they a tested to their limits. The author shows no remorse for making it difficult on his charas, pushing them into deadly situations after one another. I was impressed by the vision of the future that the author had perceived, modern realities fit nicely next to the fantasy of the possible future, an element of truth just under the surface that makes the dystopian setting believable.
The second book was an excellent fallow up. A well thought out continuation of the story that made sense. Again, the author placed such hardship on his chara, Logan. It was always impressive as he held himself together, and pushed forward. A proper way to make a sequel, and well handled.
The third book, was extremely bad, a complete waste of time. Almost like a joke, the author takes Logan and places him in an alternate reality, and makes him do it all over again, with slight changes in the rules. Although the story moved at the breakneck speed of the other two, it seemed like a fan fiction retelling of the movie, with plot changes to fit that person's taste. Yeah, it was that bad.
As a whole, I really enjoyed the first two books, they exceeded my expectations, and found them to be of the highest quality science fiction. The third should be ignored, and left out of the series.
