Phantoms – Too much young adult for my taste.

This book very much continues the story straight from where the first one left of. Unfortunately it is not only the story itself that continues but also the rubbish science and overly simplistic handling of pretty much everything from mutinies to technological advances to military action and diplomatic alliances. Continue reading Phantoms – Too much young adult for my taste.

From Far Beyond books 1 to 4 – Bad but amazingly enough somewhat fun read.

This was weird reading. I am almost ashamed to say that I found these books rather fun to read despite the fact that, in terms of science fiction these are really bad books. At the best books can be called science fantasy and young adult ones at that. Continue reading From Far Beyond books 1 to 4 – Bad but amazingly enough somewhat fun read.

Time for another backlog clean-up.

It is time for another backlog clean-up. I have been rather busy lately and have not really had time to sit down in front of a PC to write on my blog. That has not stopped me from reading of course which created a bit of a backlog and since I kind of promised myself that I would make an effort to keep up it is time for a backlog clean-up.

The book is well written and I really liked the main protagonist but… I really disliked the story. So I said to myself that there is a chance that book two will pick up in a direction that is more palatable to me so I held off on the judgement until I had read it. Well long story short, it did indeed do so. Continue reading The Last Hunter book 1 & 2 – Shaky start but improved in book 2.

Fight the Good Fight – Rather disappointing actually.

his book was a tad disappointing actually. The author has written several books in the Battlegroup Z series that I quite liked but in some books in that series he tended to go way to heavily towards political bullshit and machinations. Unfortunately this first book in the Echoes of War series also does just that. Continue reading Fight the Good Fight – Rather disappointing actually.
