Reviews of The Other Eight by Joseph R. Lallo

Charles Kravetz reviewed on April 27, 2014

This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.

Disclosure: I was given my copy of this book by the author as a review copy.

Misfits, the US Army, and a top-secret project. What could possibly go wrong with that?

A group of humans with advanced capabilities are recruited by the US Army for a top-secret project called The Guardian Project. When the project is accidentally leaked, it becomes a reality show in spite of all the secrecy.

This book is not laugh out loud funny, but there is plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor in it. As someone that spent 20 years in the US military, there is enough fact to keep my interest. Yet, there is enough satire to remind me it really is fiction. I love the way the supposed less worthy come through to win the battle and convince the commanding officer they are worth keeping. I thought Afterthought was the best character of all.

Joseph Lallo writes books today because there are people that read them. Stories such as this one lend a bit of fun to our reading pleasure. While not everyone will see the humor in this story, those that do will be glad they read it.

I am going to recommend this book to those who enjoy reading subtle humor and satire. Those who enjoy seeing fun poked at the military will also enjoy it. It will not please all readers, because not all readers will understand the humor buried in this book. For myself, I really like the way this author writes, and will continue to read his books.
