It's been awhile since I've read a novelization of a movie. Haven't seen the movie first so won't spend space here comparing to that, however, I have read a few novelizations that I enjoyed like Alien. Panic Button doesn't have the depth or detail of that novelization and reads more like a screenplay. There is very little in the way of unique point of views (more like a camera point of view with little internal dialogue) and, deaths aside, not a significant amount of detail. Would have been nice ...more

Next time you enter a competition - think twice!

I read the Kindle edition of this book but it doesn't seem to be listed with Goodreads....

Excellent!

I really enjoyed this novel and wondered just how it would all come to a conclusion.

It certainly makes you think about such social sharing and community networks as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter etc which is exactly what I'm assuming it was supposed to do....

Scary stuff!

I don't want to give too much away but if you think about everything you've ever wri

Question

Question, why have I taken this title ,? Think about how much you use Facebook,Twitter, etc to tell not only your family, friends, but also virtual strangers so much of your life , who else has this knowledge ! This book is certainly true of the way we are so eager to share ,and accept anyone into our lives, without really knowing what happens to all this knowledge that we impart ,for some on a daily basis , maybe we should Question!! If you enjoy a glimpse , maybe only in fiction , but

I'm reading this book at the moment and have to say that it's pretty damn good! It's a slightly strange experience as I actually saw the film before starting the book. My enjoyment of the book hasn't been dampened in the least.

It's a really short (174 page) read and I'm getting through it in no time. The reason I'm posting this before I finish the novel is because it's being given away for free this weekend! Head over to amazon and grab a kindle version from 24/2/12 to 27/2/12 and you can grab i

Somewhat entertaining with a lot of gore. Easy to read but very predictable. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick gory book to read.

Entertaining, easy to read and all you want in a time consuming horror. Read it in one sitting and liked the story however it is not really special. Perfect book if you have an afternoon off.

A not very credible story populated with flat and unsympathetic characters: How did this ever make it to print?

Frazier Lee, you sick puppy!

An enjoyable gore-fest debut from a writer/director destined for great things.

'Panic Button' shows how dangerous our online social interactions and our need to share information about ourselves can be as 4 'players' battle for their lives on board a plane...

'Panic Button' harbours an interesting concept, and really had my suspense and curiosity held in the first half of the book, however as the story went on it just seemed to get more and more far fetched right until the ending which really disappointed me and was unbelievable.

I did enjoy the fact that the writing was so

I found this short book (178 pages) on the Kindle Store for free and so i thought I would give it a try as the storyline sounded good. This book shows the fear of identity theft, online privacy and cyber bullying. It is a fairly quick book to read and one that is good if you are on a long journey to some place, it will make the time pass by. It is quite well written apart from the Kindle version having a few spelling mistakes

Revenge Is Sweet Quite well done, but I came away with the feeling that the main characters got nothing more than they deserved.
