Recommends it for: Everyone who likes sci-fi
This is like going to see a b-movie, which sole aim is to entertain you. And that is just what you want once in a while.
It ticks all the right boxes:
Alien invasion, genetic engineering, space and a small force against overwhelming odds.

There are some really interesting ideas in Angry Ghosts, not the least of which is the dramatic contrast between the two cultures presented in the novel and the huge gap in understanding between them, even when both sides truly want to work together. This is a huge theme in the book, and one dealt with gracefully. Both sides are presented sympathetically, so there's no "our way is obviously superior to yours and therefore you should all just drop your culture and merge with us" that is so often ...more

I have got this book as a part of a bundle and its description was one of the reasons I bought it. It seemed the story would be told from the perspective of aliens who, ages ago, destroyed the humanity. I was looking forward to reading some interesting non-humans.

I was wrong, twice.

First, the aliens have blue skin and tails, but also chairs, media and drinking problems - nothing new here. Second, the book is not about them.

These two basically cancel each other out. Apart from this confusion, I m

I got this as part of the humble book bundle, really cheap so can't go wrong. Well that was the plan anyway. This was just awful. The writing is terrible, clunky and clichéd. Someone needs to tell the author that not every noun needs a qualifying adjective, that sometimes it's okay just to use "said" (or on this case" say" as it's all in the present tense). This is a quote: "The huge man hefts his massive weapon in both hands and jogs down the corridor, his hefty footfalls reverberating solidly. ...more

I have to admit, at first, I was a little put off by the writing style. A lot written in present tense, but ... I read on and was so pleased with the book, I went immediately to Amazon and bought the second one and so far this rate will also buy the third one.
The story flows as we learn about a secret society hidden away on an asteroid. This colony has existed, harshly, away from earth for over a thousand years. The characters are interesting and easy to like and identify with. The stor

Takes a while to get going, but once it does it's very enjoyable. I can't say that it had any great impact on me, but it was decent sci-fi and I'll probably read the sequel. Solid setting, interesting characters. My major criticism would be that the antagonists are barely even in the book (although they may play a larger role in the next one). Their absence wasn't really a problem, the story certainly works fine without them, I just thought they were interesting and would have liked to hear a bi ...more

An interesting look at what human society might turn into when the survival of the whole species ends up on the shoulders and genes of a few.

The story was not bad, but what always threw me off was the use of present tense. I found myself subconsciously converting all of the story into the usual past tense even though the letters in front of my eyes were clearly present tense... Veeeeery unusual experience, let me tell you :-)

I'm going against the stream of the other reviewers. I thought it was a fast fun easy read. More sci-fi on technology and culture than on aliens. The ending wasn't an ending, but it was a transition point. ...more
