I enjoyed, how slowly, but surely, the plot was able to all come together. I really wanted wanted the bad guy ( leaving out name to not spoil it for other readers ) to get his... and he did. I'm also glad that we are able to see a policy change throughout the entire Silo.
Obviously my favorite character, was Juliette, cause she was our hero.
I liked how she purposely lead you astray. There were times i really though the book was going in one direction... and it went to another. I really enjoy to be fooled, cause i'm so used to jumping the gun and figuring plots out ahead of time.
Houlston finding the body of his wife... and then dying. I really thought that... well he was going to live, and that everything wasn't as bad as it seemed outside. He'd somehow would get reunited with his wife. But lets face it, if it was for his wife's early finding... the bread crumbs would of never been started.
Fascinating, Riveting, Compelling
Conan tricking Nafertari. Who does she think she was, trying to get him to do all this stuff for him, after he completes even more missions. He never said a word, took that ring and was out!!!
The strangling of Baal-pteor... i can't help it. I read this scene about 2 years ago, and was happy to know that this book had Shadows in Zamboula.
I'm a different sort of Conan fan. I started off, as a young child reading my brothers Savage Sword of Conan mags, then getting into myself, reading hundreds of regular Conan and King Conan books of Marvel. Saw the Conan movies, got treated to 2 different Cartoon Conan series, then took it upon myself to star reading the non-Robert Howard created books like Conan The Wanderer etc. Now i find myself, being fully versed in Howard's work, as with the work of others as sort of an authoritarian of sorts. I can't tell you how many times i've read / listened to Red Nails.
It ranks up there amoungst the best i've ever read. It pulls you into the story immediately... and never lets you go. At each scene, you are on the edge of your seat, waiting in anticipation about what's going to happen next. And the weird part it, you almst feel sorry for "Rob"... according to him, his plans were just.
The opening salvo in the beggining. Story's like this, have to have a great start, or else it won't be as compelling, if not at all. We learn how Rob comes to be, how he takes over, and from there... chaos ensues.
No really extreme reactions, sorta of pity for the characters, especially around Zero Hour. Let's face it, these poor people didn't see it coming, and they were helpless to stop it. I do admit, the little girl's whose car drove into the river and she drowned, that was sad.
