I wouldn't say this is the best video game book in existence, nor would I deem it the worst. I would put it somewhere on the better half. After reading many other reviews, I do agree in others' complaints in character development. The only development was the characters' arsenal. The reporter's story was interesting; it gave a story to the civilian life in the Command & Conquer world and to what happened to those exposed to Tiberium other than they scream and fall over. The quickness to drop beloved character kept you guessing, and hoping the main character would still be alive by the end of the chapter knowing that DeCandido is not afraid to off important characters.

My biggest put-off is the cliches. Like in many other sci-fi war books (See: The Helmsmen series; Bill Baldwin) the main military hero, Ricardo Vega, is the son of a war hero and advances to the higher ranks that would normally take year in a matter of hours. He always has the luck of finding the right guy, or the hairbrained idea of doing something stupid getting himself more credit.

And my favorite thing about the book was its ease of reading. While the action was cool, and the reporter's story was informative, it was the ease of reading mixed with the escapism. Little things like the change in slang removing you from this world and into the world of "Noddies" versus the "Giddy-up" or GDIUP. And at the end of it all, the speech given at the end left me with a great feeling hoping for another book.

Although it veered off from the story of CNC 3, and the characters were a little stale, it was a great read for a couple casual days. A good weekend read with little much to do.

for starters this is a great book i did find it a bit hard to understand visualy what things looked like due to the lack of discription(cuz people are supposed to know what differens units are) but other than that i would say its a great gook and a great buy with an ending that will leave u guessing right up untill the last page...,

It seems,'although I havn't read the book yet' that this would make a great series
