Review by: Hannes Birnbacher on June 02, 2016 : (no rating)
I liked this one. Lots of action! Three stars for good SF.


Remark: In my system, five stars is reserved for the most important SF of world literature, e.g. "1984" from George Orwell, and four stars for those I consider all-time best, for example Michael Crichton or some novels from Larry Niven.
This leaves three stars for most of really good Indie SF, but as everybody else at Smashworts does rate a SF novel at five stars if he liked it, I was detoriating the average rating of Smashwords authors I like best! So I decided to change my previous reviews, one by one, and repost them without the smashwords rating. Watch out for my rating in the review text instead!

Review by: David Newall on Oct. 30, 2013 :
This is a first-class book, exhibiting little of the spelling, grammar & punctuation errors which distract & detract from so many contemporary novels. The narrative is fast-paced, engaging & surprisingly believable; even disturbingly so. It describes a USA that, distressingly, the world sees all too often: one in which most Usanites are the nicest people, but who collectively form a dangerous nation, one to be feared & shunned, whose citizens seem to delight in turning into packs of selfish, loutish, thieving, murderous animals that, when faced with widespread lack of petrol, justify their foulest of excesses as, 'doing what you have to do to survive.' The story ends with a wonderful & hope-inspiring discovery of a new, non-polluting fuel, as well as a treasure-trove of alien technologies (but, of course, controlled by the real world's leader of the present-day axis of evil, USA.) This book engages from beginning to end and is hard to put down. I look forward to many more stories from James Corkill.
