I just couldn't get past the over the top narration lacking any flow or rhythm.
The Rook is a guilty pleasure for the Sci-Fi crowd. It's a little serious, a little silly, and steps way across the "it could happen" line. Once you accept that, stop thinking so much, and sit back and enjoy it for what it is - a very, very entertaining way to spend several hours. I get the feeling we're just scratching the surface of O'Malley's universe. It's a place that cozy's up against the Marvel universe but with a continental flair with a dash of MHI. All in all, a hell of a debut for the writer. I hope he tightens things up a bit going forward, but don't let that keep you from spending your credit on The Rook.
