really liked it
Recommended for: lovers of action adventure, people who like Greig Beck, Clive Cussler, Rick Chesler

It's entertainment, people. and ain't that what we read for. There's nonfiction for those who want to learn, but i do lots of study and thinking in my day job. I read to relax and have a bit of fun. yes, it's over the top. yes, the hero is almost superman and gets as many second chances as any superhero, but it's thought out well, enough plotpoints are hidden nicely through the book to explode when needed and by the FSM it's fun. anyone who doesn't like Matt Reilly is a twit, way too serious in their life. relax, have fun. It's a rollicking read, good ol' fashioned shooting shit up and blowing shit up, witha few nasty surprises as well. Action adventure for the man in you.(take that how you will.)

Along with Greig Beck (personally, I think the better writer)Matthew shows that Australians can write itelligent action adventure to challenge the Americans at what they do so well themselves.

Good, blokey fun.
