Transplant

Rated 4.33/5 based on 6 reviews
Stupidity, greed, and isolationistic fundamentalism between the three main super powers had pushed mankind to the brink of destruction.
Just before the holocaust began, a group of wealthy and reasonably sane individuals decided save some small remnant of humankind. A small group of near genetically perfect people would be sent to another star system, and so Project Transplant began.

Review by: Michael Paul on May 07, 2013 :
Very good for a free sci-fi adventure book. While light and quick, the story also explores some deeper issues. Great twist in the middle from a topic well explored by some of science fiction's best authors to one a little more open.

Numerous common word usage mistakes are a little distracting, and some of the action gets a little ridiculous in the middle (reminding me of a common amusement park ride), but definitely worth reading. This book would benefit greatly from first class copy and story editing.

I will definitely be reading more from this author.

A good, classic Sci-fi adventure which kept me turning the pages!
Not sure if I agree with the final premise and the action telescoped a little too quickly at the end but overall I enjoyed it and would happily read more of Dr Moreton!

Good book! Interesting, unique and a well planned storyline. I have not come to expect much of some of the free books. They are usually written with passion, but many of the authors have difficulty with using appropriate descriptive words, and matching different dialog styles with individual characters. Mr. Moreton does not have any of these issues. His characters’ dialog is just like life. Each individual has their own voice, their own fears and hopes, and their own personality.

I particularly enjoyed the premise of the story, as well as the overall storyline. It kept my attention, and made me want to read more.

That said; there were numerous typos and formatting errors. I am not sure if part of the problem came in the format conversion to the Kindle format, or just a lack of thorough editing. Another issue I had was with the science of the story. Being a hard science fiction reader for 40 years makes me a bit of a critic of stories that have obvious scientific errors in it. This one had several, and while they were easy enough to ignore, the errors did detract from the story.

The only other small criticism I had was with the ending. While I appreciate that the author was attempting to bring closure, and give the reader some hope for the future, it felt a little abrupt, like the author just wanted to finish quickly. A better ending could have left the reader hanging, opening up a possible sequel, or adding more detail to the last bit of action.

None the less, a fine book, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a unique perspective on a growing issue!

Overall Feedback: Just as the many David Moreton books that I have read prior to this one, I was enthralled from the beginning. The reader will be entertained and overcome throughout the book. This science fiction adventure will have you at the edge of your seat and begging for more of Moreton.

Point of View: You ride through the story as a watcher. Third person that is. You hear and see the world throught the eyes of the main character via a narrater of sorts.

Voice: As usual in his writing, Moreton does a stellar job.

Character Development: As I have come to expect of Moreton's stories he did a phenomenal job with development of the characters. You, as the reader, get a real sense of kinship with Glyn.

Plot: Perfect plotline for a science fiction adventure.

Dialogue: It takes a chapter or too for Moreton to really nail down the dialogue but once he does it is flawless.

Pacing: Breakneak speed and a pageturning race to the finish.

Setting: Moreton once again proves that he can bring you to his planet and I must say, more than happy about the visit.

Continuity: The dialogue in the first couple of chapters will bring this into question but I promise if you make it past those you will not regret it.
