I read this book because of my addiction to the video game Call of Duty 4, it's a great military action adventure. What I liked was the use of real events and real threats, it made the story a little more realistic. I only have one complaint and it's about the ending. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't go into it. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Good read!
Very interesting twist on the whole zombie idea. This book is similar and different than movies like Dawn of the Dead or Night of the Living Dead. The zombies aren't just mindless killing machines, it makes for a good read. There is a lot of gore in it as well, if that's your thing:)
At times it seems like this book is trying to be a Conan book, only not as good. It has it's moments when it is a fun read, but sometimes it drags on. One issue is that you don't get a map or detailed summary of the area in which everything is happening. It doesn't really take away from the story, but it would be nice. There are also parts in the book that don't advance the story or add up to anything at all. Aside from those low points, it's a decent read. 3 stars.
This wasn't the best Batman book I ever read but it was good. It should be called Batman and Martian Manhunter because he's in it just as much as batman, not that it's a bad thing. All in all, a good book with lots of action.
This is a good book, but not great. I was expecting a little more excitement and suspense but it just didn't deliver. I've never read a book by Preston before so I can't say if it is better or worse than any others. Overall, it was enjoyable though.
Very bleak look at the corporate world. Globalization has it's ups and downs, as do most things, but Korten really makes you feel as if the world is dire straits. Interesting book, too bad most of the world doesn't care about changing because some Kortens ideas are reasonable and could really help people all over the world....
White Shark is an EXCELLENT book! I like to read shark attack books, but this is different. There is much more to this book then just a shark eating people. Great, fast paced story and characters that you really care about. This monster is CRAZY, I've never read about anything like it!
This book would have been better if I hadn't watch GoodFellas on an (almost) daily basis for 3 years. It's exactly like the movie. I suggest this book for those who love Goodfellas and those who just love true crime and mafia books.
