We grabed this thinking it wold be fun typical Terry Pratchett, nope its for children.
It was well read and im sure there is some sort of fun and learning about poo for kids but its not for adults
This was a poor ending to a great 'series' Feist keeps writing the same book over and over juts changing the characters names.
His explantion of 'stuff' and extra dimensions et. al. and the uber enemy in this book is purile, tedious rubbish.I groaned every time he went on to have his characters try to explain physic 101 in terms of 'stuff' silly silly silly....
A real shame as i would place the 1st there books in the magaican series in my top 10 favourite books
I could not listen to this recoding as it was blaring and poor quality.
This book was like reading a phone book and a menu. Dull new characters introduced rather than progress the storyline of any of the interesting ones.
Im a big fan of easy reading zombie fiction. This book is not bad and as others have pointed out its rather a mix of 28days meets platoon. Lots of action and tight story telling. One minor but nagging issue i have is the authors insistence on making the book sounds like a boys own war story. He writes like he has read too many of those war comics i used to read a a child. His constant references to military tactics and equipment left me some what annoyed rather than adding to the imagery of the story. Unfortunately many of his references are blatantly incorrect and his use to military terms and descriptions is equipment are often wrong. Again a small point but as the military units progress through the city is the main focus of the book he perhaps should have paid more attention to this aspect.
This is a very interesting book, but nothing to do with preparing go to mars at all, it is all about space travel in general. I was hoping for some specific challenges associated with a mars mission.
Also the author spends too much time on the absolute miniature of some of the more dull aspects of specetravel. We'll yes thats the point of the book but some snappier editing would have been appreciated
