This book grabs you by the throat and refuses to let you go.

Remic has said that the one thing that readers should be whilst reading a book is bored. There is nothing boring in this book in terms of action and pacing. The plot gets underway straight from the outset and the relevant characters are introduced and the action starts and is unrelenting until the end.

There are a couple of negatives. The characters of Keenan, Pippa and Franco have little in the way of arc, only Franco could be conside

Andy Remic gets some bad reviews I feel unfairly. This book moves along with never a dull moment,some good one liners and banter,some good original ideas. Yes maybe the ending was a bit
dodgy but I enjoyed it.

I hate giving this book, or any book really, a one star review. But Andy Remic seems bound and determined to personally make sure I wind up in a loony bin, ranting and raving about terrible plot cliches and great ideas gone horribly, horribly wrong.

That's the crux of it - Biohell is a genuinely good idea for a novel, but it's so completely mishandled as to be darkly hilarious. The basics of the plot for the first three quarters of the novel are fine. A morally corrupt nanotechnology company has

Paid a buck for this book at a used book store (whee, Strand!), and I feel ripped off.

A sequel (possibly skipping a few books, he doesn't actually number them) to War Machine, which in itself was book 3 or 4 of the series. (I've reviewed that previously)

The back cover lays out the basic plot, and then proceeds to hail War Machine as an awesome book.
Which should tell you something.
This thing has some interesting points, but in general it's a massive failure at an attempt to shock by being disgust

An ok but not more follow up to War Machine. The action is there but the large scale epic setting is not. This could have been any near future mil sf thriller with some bells and whistles and I usually avoid such. Still kept my interest for the next book in the series, but I hope it will get to the large scale picture, exotic planets, spaceships, not urban combat against pseudo-zombies.

This book vacillates between hard sci-fi and some kind of space comedy. Page after page is filled with bad cliches and broken plot devices that are held loosely together with deus ex machina. The author has some kind of weird obsession with the word 'slam' which is used roughly once a page, if not more.

Just bad bad bad, couldn't even force myself to finish reading it. Won't be reading the rest of the series. There's a reason this one was hard to find and never went Mass Market.

It started out real strong then kind of died off, the ending was really not great. For being such a big ass book I think some more grandiose could have transpired.
