A riveting read that I couldn't put down. Strongly drawn, unique and yet familiar characters. It doesn't go overboard in their depiction. It's not overwritten and it's not written like the author has been watching television or the latest hollywood crapbuster, like so many other blockbuster authors. I'm both excited and wary by what Hollywood is going to do with this book. Tommy Lee Jones has a bad tendency to overact if he doesn't have a strong director and the actor picked for Auton Sugar, well I just don't know.
I wouldn't consider this one of Dean's better efforts. Very cliched as far as the modern horror novel is concerned. I can tell Dean goes to a lot of Hollywood's PG-13 horror fair that's in vogue right now. Try something else before considering this one
There's nothing more disheartening than the American people being lectured from on high again by one of the most incompetent and dreadful Presidents to ever hold office. Please Mr. President shut up and go back to doing the good things that helped redeem your image in the first place after being soundly kicked out of office by the American people in 1980.
Highly enjoyable, yet predictable read until you get to the author's recommendations at the end and in particular his predictions of the greatest threats to the USA. This was released in 1998! It reads like the 9/11 Commission Report. Chilling!
Clarkes agenda is so transparent. He expected Bush to solve all the problems left untouched by the Clinton administration's eight years in office in just eight months. Talk about sour grapes. I guess Clarke's next employer will think twice about not promoting him! Look what it got Bush.
