This is the BEST techno-action novel I've ever put my hands on. The author has the technical knowledge of Robert Sawyer, and the action-suspense grasp of Clancy. He merges cutting edge military action with high-tech bad guys, tosses in some science, and the delivers it up in a masterpiece of literary fiction. I'll definitely read his next books.This guy just made it on to my favorite-authors list!
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Suarez did this to me before with "Daemon". It was the first in two part story. "Kill Decision" finishes but doesn't end this story - leaving too many threads unravelled. His quirky skepticism throughout the first half of "Kill Decision" is really intriguing. And Suarez is a master of futureTech. Once again though, he goes way to far over the top in his cinematic battles. Somehow I wish he'd ended this book in the center. Certainly I wish the finish had been the end. Sadly neither happened.
If this was a revue from me to myself before purchasing - I'd say, don't buy it Ted. The ending second half is weak and the finish disappointing. Oh yeah, Jeff Gurner reads it all goooood
Seeking the Truth
A critic writing in Audible.com indicated that Suarez was the heir apparent to Michael Crichton, which is why I brought this book. The critic was wrong. I did not have to listen very long to realize the Crichton and Suarez do not write about the same topics at all -- and Crichton would win out every time.
Gurner seems to do his best with paper thin characters, but I don't care for his accented character voices
Implausible plot turns, paper-thin characters, this is well short of his first two books.
Loved it. Very entertaining and easy to visualize the action site to a magnificent performance. I would girly recommend it
Daniel Suarez is a very visual writer. He paints vivid pictures and adds jus the right amount of color. His characters are distinct and well developed. I like the twists and turns, transitions to new subjects and locals and introduction of characters. This is my first Suarez book and I'm looking forward to more.
