Nov 22, 2010 rated it it was amazing
Seriously. This book (well, this series ) would make an amazing movie. Kind of weird Australian dude writes a book about the future and a Wisconsin teen wants it made into a movie.
Where to begin. Kyntax was amazing. So was Six. And Nai! AHHH. Talk about a cliff hanger.
Six of Hearts is a genetically altered super-teen. To get the full story, you'll want the first book in the series, The Lab
Unlike many stories, though, this sequel doesn't disapoint. Its actio

I highly recommend this book. Remote Control was filled with exhilarating fight scenes that seems so realistic. The plot was exciting and had an interesting twist at the end.
I love the character, Agent Six of Hearts, mostly because of his inner conflict and his brotherly relationship with Kyntak.
All in all, Remote Control was a book that I couldn't put down.

I liked this book very much. I thought it was a good book because it had action ad was unrealistic. There was adventure and skill. I like the fiction/adventure/action books. I think this book had a lot of fiction. It was unrealistic because it had things that would not happen in real life. It also had a lot of action because the main character is a spy so he went on missions.
The book is based on a teenage boy that created in a lab. The plot in this book begins where the main character is lookin

Remote Control is an action-packed book that will have any thrill lover hooked. This book is filled with action and adventure on every page. It is very entertaining and hard to put down once you start reading. Remote Control will keep you on the edge of your seat with all the suspense and thrill Agent Six takes you through. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action-packed literature as James Bond and Jason Bourne.

It’s official. Since Agent Six of Hearts’ last mission, everyone knows exactly who or what he is—superhuman. Somehow Six is able to tolerate this unwanted attention, maybe because he gets to work with his brother Kyntak. But when Kyntak is kidnapped while on a mission and everyone at the Deck, especially the Queen of Spades, starts to think Six is a double agent, Six realizes that he must go solo if he’s to have any chance of survival and rescuing Kyntak. With an unknown and the most cunning adv ...more

Every author who wants to write series needs to read this. Remote Control sets up so well for the next book that when I closed the covers, I was tingling all over, the ending with the villain was that good. This novel also stands alone so well that I was surprised to find out it's got a prequel, The Lab.

Also, I've decided: I will never deprive myself of thrillers ever again. It's not just the pow-pow-boom action -- it's the cunning minds on both sides, the subterfuge and secrets, the plans withi

"The first thing he saw was a soldier with a megaphone leaning through the second-floor window of one of the buildings; the second was the sixteen snipers aiming at him from the windows all around."

Events like the one above are fairly commonplace for Agent Six in REMOTE CONTROL, the sequel to Jack Heath's THE LAB. It is filled with heart-stopping images just like it.

not bad...extremely fast paced (which is awesome, i really dislike slow-paced books). superhuman dudes with personalities most guys probably dream of having and most girls probably dream of dating...not bad not bad

so why did i only give this book a 3 star rating? i'm not really sure why but in terms of how much this book really sucked me in and in terms of how addictive the series really kind of just suits a 3 star rating in that department.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Six once again in perilous danger and thrust into dark plans of intrigue and suspense. While I believe that there was very little character development outside of Six and maybe Kyntak, I found everyone quite enjoyable to read. The new villain is exactly what this series needed. The Moriarty to Six's Holmes and very much the ultimate urban spy enemy. I can't wait to read more.

Remote control book review
I thought the book remote control by jack heath was a very good written and action packed book. I had a hard time putting it down. Every page keep me guessing and on the edge of my seat. I thought the author did a great job describing the fight sense and also the stunts. One stunt that I especially liked was when six (six of hearts is the main character) ran up a very high wall. Jack heath described what was going on and also what six was thinking as he was doing this s

Jack Heath returns to the world he first created in The Lab to further the adventure of Agent Six of Hearts and The Deck. This time, it is a new power that has to be faced and defeated, with trust and confidence in short supply.

Upon reflection, what struck me was how fast paced the book is. One can really get a sense of the forward momentum of both the individual scenes/moments in the book and with the larger story. This is even so for times were things are racing along in a scene and one parti

I'm not much a fan of action stories especially when it doesn't have much romance entitled to it either but this book did make an exception. It kept me thinking of what might happen next. Six, sadly enough, was thought to be a double agent and is a traitor of the Deck. To make matter's worse his brother just got kidnapped. How he managed to get through that did give me that same feeling as everyone would write their "superhero stories". It didn't make me feel much special but however I did like ...more

It has been several months since I read The Lab, but I got caught up fairly quickly. The plot was high-paced, the fight/action scenes pretty good, the looming threat of powerful enemies suspenseful. What I really liked about this book were the characters. Agent Six had a really good line somewhere - "He was going to leave for selfish reasons, but he stayed for even more selfish reasons." Or something to that effect. Kyntak was cool. The ending is one that makes you go, "Oh, [four-letter-word-of- ...more

I think this book is awesome and it kept me interested of the book from start to finish. Being full of action and vivid imagery, this book is compelling and impossible to let go of. Using an abundance of figurative language to describe the animated fighting scenes of the characters, the author, Jack Heath, creates the image of the scenes inside the reader's head and lets us feel the scene being played out as if it is in real life. Also having a great storyline, I would recommend it to other peop ...more

The only complaint that I have is that there aren't many story breaks (I can't stop reading) and Six, who's supposed to be a genius, is not that smart. He makes a lot of mistakes when you think about it... I mean, careless much? ...more

Nice concepts, but characters fell short. There was far too much relentless action with no break for the reader, and as a result, characterisation suffered - so Heath crammed in some CHARACTER REALISATION CHUNKS~ into the last few chapters, instead of showing their development throughout.

The book is nonstop action. Seriously. No one ever gets a break for sleep or food or bodily necessities. So I think it will probably appeal to boys who want their books action-packed. Because you couldn't possibly cram any more action into these 300+ pages. ...more

Fantastic book, look out closely for the next two books for they are a bit hard to find. I suggest emailing or contacting the author in some way or form.
