A corporate investigator who doesn't trust his employer.
A mercenary gun-for-hire with a talent for violence and a willingness to shoot first.
And a white-hat hacker who doesn't know when to quit.

Three independent contractors brought together for one unusual job. Five years ago, master programmer Carlos Rodriguez retired. Now his old employer wants him back.

Quietly.

Shelves: abandoned
I tried, I really tried. The first couple of chapters really hooked me, but then we hit a slowdown of epic proportions, starting with the tablet repair. I thought it was just introductory and we will soon be on our way, but I am 28% in and we are still 'learning the ropes'. I cannot envision reading 700 more pages of mundane conversation even if there is a promise of good action somewhere down the line. I just cannot, no matter how intriguing the concept or how well written the action. I simply ...more

Good stuff

The initial description didn’t exactly draw me to reading Colony but I dove in anyway and was rewarded with an excellent SF story and characters. Max first introduces the main characters with enough to flesh out their talents, their personalities and why they are brought together. Then the fun begins. A waterworld where subs are the space craft and the depths hide mysteries. Good stuff and a great read.

Good read.

Good read for teen males. Lots of military action. A big twist is a surprise at the end. Would read the "Jungle" by the same author.

Great pace. Worth the read

A classic adventure sci fi. Great pace and strong characters. A truly original environment. Something of a feat in this day and age

So, I've finished Colony and let my thoughts settle down over the course of a few weeks (er, as well as getting sidetracked and just forgetting to give one out...). So, without further ado let's go!

The Good: I'm a sucker for long books. Colony sure fills out that requirement clocking in at 333,000 words. The characters are pretty neat. We've got Jake, the corporate investigator (my favorite of the bunch), Anna, the mercenary-for-hire, and Sweets as the hacker. All three of them are cool and pla

Max Florschutz was born and raised in the wilds of southeast Alaska, on a little island that boasted both a large, lumber-based economy and one of the highest rainfalls to ever not be desired by humanity.

Upon his return, he continued ...more
