Just finished reading Barren, the story line was well thought out, a pleasant change from the gung-ho all action hero characters that are usually in similar novels and it kept my interest through out. Looking forward to the follow on

I read 35% before stopping. The writing is very good, action scenes play out well and are engaging. The problem I have all the action scenes are preceded by someone doing something stupid. In the last scene I read, a group is being attacked. Everyone backups up the stairs, firing their weapons at the attackers, into the safe place, except the last guy. He turns his back to the enemy, and gets badly injured, had he backed up the stairs like the others he would have shot his unarmed attacker.

Darwin is at work here, and from what I read, just about everyone needs to die.
