    (152)

    War seethed across the planet. Machines soared through the air, churned through the seas, crawled across the surface, pushing ever forward, carrying death. Earth was engaged in titanic struggle. Germany, Russia, France, China, Japan: the maps were changing day by day. The hostilities spread in ever-widening ripples of destruction: Britain, Italy, Africa...the fate of the world hung in the balance. Then the real enemy came.

    Story
    What did you like best about Worldwar: In the Balance? What did you like least?

    The author takes factual historical tidbits and tucks them into the story as guideposts so that his fiction never strays too far beyond the bounds of believability.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The alien invader's culture is interesting. The obligatory love story lines are distracting.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The German's use of a railway gun to fight a highly advanced opponent.


    Could you see Worldwar: In the Balance being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. In the end it is simply a story of a more advanced species attacking a less advanced one and getting a bloody nose for their hubris.


    Any additional comments?

    The author uses graphic sex scenes to indulge his own fantasies. They are unnecessary and repetitive. It seems that all of the main characters end up having sex at least several times each throughout the book. That is, except for the faithful scientist.
