Романът на практика е една от първите книги от обширната поредица-космическа опера DeathStalker. Имаме налице една Империя, която постоянно се разраства и непрекъснато колонизира нови и нови светове. Немалка част от тези светове са, меко казано - враждебни. Такъв е и Улф IV, на който попадат героите в романа. Въпросните колонизатори без изключение не са читави хора - в повечето случаи са провалили се имперски офицери или прочее личности, които вървят по острието на бръснача и са били принудени д ...more

Честно, разочарован съм! Без напрежение , предвидим и често повтаряем екшън , нелогични действия. Единствените плюсове са персонажите ,но за жалост има прекалено малко бекграунд , отгоре-отгоре по няколко реда история и догадки кой от къде е. Интересното е свързващото звено с предишната част ,а по точно Изследовател Кристъл, дали тази част е предистория или не обаче не се знае. Когато си изчерпан и са ти свършени добрите идеи - правиш книги като тази. Честно , по добре да не ги правиш!

This one was slow going, as well as very repetitive. I got pretty tired of almost every page having "Oh no, we are getting attacked by thousands of mutant aliens!" Of the three books I have read in this series, Mistworld was by far the best, and this one it seemed the author just ran out of steam.

Exciting, brutal scifi horror novel by Simon R. Green. He creates Lovecraftian mystery and mercifully unfolds it, disturbing the reader, but never despairing him, thanks to his vivid and memorable characters.
Green's novels are like celebrations for me...

Such terrible, terrible prose. Such a predictable story, especially after having read other Green recently. Plot points which seemed to exist simply to use a good line, or reference a particular quote. And yet -- I finished it. Why?

A science Fiction book. The third of the 'Twilight of the Empire' trilogy which is a prelude to the 'Deathstalker' series.

This took me a while to get through because neither the story nor characters sucked me in. It was just 'ok'.

Another adventure set in the Ironstone Empire. Always a pleasure to read Green - he brings a sense of humour and pace to any story he writes. And Hellworld doesn't disappoint.

Simon Richard Green is a British science fiction and fantasy-author. He holds a degree in Modern English and American Literature from the University of Leicester. His first publication was in 1979.

His Deathstalker series is partly a parody of the usual space-opera of the 1950s, told with sovereign disregard of the rules of probability, while being at the same time extremely bloodthirsty.
