Strange story how i picked up this book. I have a Goodreads account and awhile back after i smashed through like 5 Matthew Reily books and updated my list on there, i received an email from from a random person telling me he sees i like Matthew Reily novels and tells me he is an author and an Aussie as-well and writes books very similar to Matthew and would i like a free copy of an ebook of his. I’m not a fan of ebooks i prefer the tactile sensations of holding a book and turning pages not to mention the smell and lets not forget how good does a full bookshelf look in a home let alone 4 full ones. So i managed to score myself a signed paperback instead
This is the first time that has happened to me. I wonder if this is a strategy used by some authors to get their work out there.
Either way i’m not one to refuse a personal recommendation so i jumped straight into it. I was optimistic as not only does he say he loves reading Matthew Reily books (my new favorite Aussie author) but he works are very similar. Plus he is an Aussie as well so my patriotic pride compelled me him a go
Sadly i was disappointed, i just found the premise a bit hard to swallow. A secret group that runs all the world governments, creates terrorist groups to focus us our attention elsewhere and genetically enhanced soldiers in our day and age
It read more like a CONSPIRACY nuts fantasy than a book, The whole genetically enhanced super soldiers in our day and age was what made it difficult to swallow. especially considering some of their super powers.
I will be a bit more wary next time someine offers me a free book on goodreads
