A fun read, A Dreamcatcher Clone
This book was quite fun to read, but was a rehash of Dreamcatcher and Tommyknockers combined. Just a cheap version. If you want something to read while laying on the beach or by the pool that doesn't take much thought or effort then go ahead and pick this one up. Just don't expect the quality of Stephen King. And try not to let all the typos disctract you. Book suffers from poor editing. But all in all was quick and fun read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

strong SF thriller
The residents of Collier, Georgia always enjoy the annual Independence Day celebration especially the fireworks. However, this year the fireworks are different as a huge UFO crashes killing or severely injuring approximately twenty-five per cent of the locals. <P>Top secret elite military cadre ONYX arrives in town to secure the perimeter. No one will enter or leave quarantined Collier. To the surviving townsfolk, the operation looks more like an invasion force, which turns worse as the soldiers obey orders of strict security enforcement. Violence between both sides of Americans break out even while the UFO remains under the waters of the nearby lake. Unless cooler heads prevail, further tragedy seems like the only outcome. <P>FIREWORKS is not an Independence Day or War of the Worlds ET invasion tale though the alien craft crash serves as the catalyst to the theme of how will the Feds react to a UFO and how will locals react to the heavy handed Feds¿ response that ¿incarcerates¿ them? Instead the novel feels more like the Hoffman thriller Outbreak though the impetus varies. Though why the UFO was flying over earth is never revealed (sequel perhaps) the action is loaded, but James A. Moore forces his audience to ponder what seems like believable actions and reactions of real people, soldier and resident alike. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
