Halo: Evolutions

    "Very disappointed"

    I got this book after getting and enjoying The Fall of Reach and needless to say, this was no where near the same quality. The stories are only a few chapters long and most have a twist at the end but usually just made me pissed off. I would definitely pass on this if I had the chance.

    Great collection of stories from the Halo Universe! I have read and listened to the stories multiple times and still love hearing them again.

    "Booooring unless you are a hardcore HALO fan"

    Some of the stories are great. Most are not. Couldn't wait for it to be over so I could listen to something else. The gems, though, I wish they would develop and give their wn book deals to. Please, no more bundling of good with garbage!

    Story
    "Yes, Halo sells, and I feel abused."
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who collect Halo memorabilia, and collectors of noir genre material.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something less depressing.


    What didn???t you like about the narrators???s performance?

    The narrators were not bad. The stories were too damned depressing!


    What character would you cut from Halo?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    Look. I like Halo. I have all the books, games and so on. But this sucked. Every story I read AND I will ADMIT it I couldn't finish it, everybody dies! It's a never-ending barrage of stories of people who died. No hope. No glory. Just death. That is not worth the time reading. It would have been nice if they could have interjected some positive stories but they didn't. I understand that it is what makes John 117 so great, that so many people failed and he did not but if that's the case why bother telling these stories? He did have support somewhere didn't he? Overall, stay away if you can. I pre-ordered this too! It's too bad.

    "The Good and the Bad"

    There are a few really great stories here, Altho the rest were lacking, they still stayed true to the Halo universe. In war theres alot of death, and those stories, showed the darker side of that. Over all, it was entertaining, but we'll always have our favorite.
