BE AWARE some spoilers
good bits first; this was fast paced and grabs you by the whatsits straight off.... imaginative story that just goes off the rails a bit...
bad bits; not consistent in its outline, very disjointed and could have easily been set out better or even made longer to explain the big holes in the time line or just missing huge chunks of how and why
awful bits; Bigfoot? seriously! I know Mr Brown has written other great (so Im told) books about a big foot war but this random creature popping up does not fit in this story! I actually felt sorry for it.
Characters are a bit off too, you only get a physical describtion once the big boobed, skinny blonde turns up that all the men start lusting after, she just happens to be a bit kick arse too....!! the little rescued girl that was being horribly abused one chapter suddenly gets all sexy and lustful herself in the next... not very believable (sorry).
too much general convenience too.... cars with keys in, the sexy blondes hubby not making it, drinking from a toilet - but then where did he wee/poop?
they all seemed good until they all just got wiped out at the end, rather randomly to fit the (seemed like) rushed ending....
ending was imaginative, did not see coming but could have been done SO much better.
I am looking forward to reading more by this author because the general hop along was great... just left feeling a little bamboozled at the end of it.

This is the first book I've read by Eric S. Brown and was an awesome read. With characters you can't help but like and become emotionally tied to. Just the right balance of terror and humor rolled into one great bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
