    Interesting plot - but that's about it

    The plot of this book is the only thing that made me read it to the end. I was curious to see what would happen next. This raised my rating to 2 starts. The dialog of the characters reminded me more of present day polite teenagers and not at all what I'd expect of someone cast in a world akin to the Roman Empire. What really downgraded my reading experience was that fact that much of the book is a thinly veiled manifesto on the authors political beliefs. While I appreciate other points of view and even agree with some of this authors positions, the principal "hammer" in this book repeatedly pounded on how immigration and social aid bring ruin to society.

    I think this author has potential. A lot less social commentary and a more realistic dialog could turn this plot into a page-turner.

    skip this one!

    Repeating diatribe on socialism vs capitalism, with a tiny bit of poor fantasy inserted. Poorly worded detail of fantasy elements leaves me wondering what one earth happened between chapters? Flat characters, too.

    880 pages on the Nook but if you took . . .

    . . . All of this political science, lectures on morals in which the author actually attempts to argue in favor of intolerance, and drawn out dialogue in which the characters speak about deeply personal topics to near total strangers out it would be 500 pages and a better fantasy story because of it. Would have given it 2.5 stars but there are no halfs.

    The idea of this book is a good one, but would be much more effectively written by a more experienced writer. This author can be classified as an amateur at best and I found myself often annoyed by awkward word choices and clunky sentence structure and unbelievable characters. The supposed "message" the author is trying to get across is shoved in the reader's face through long winded and unrealistic conversations between the main characters that just serves to slow the book down and take away from the action of the plot. The ending leaves an opening for a sequel which I will not be reading unless this author takes some courses in writing or takes his book to a writer's conference where more experienced authors can give him instruction on how to write narratives effectively. If this author ever wants to be able to market his writing as anything other than free, he needs a lot more training. It is a commendable first try, but I do not recommend Mighty Hammer Down to anyone who has any appreciation for a well written book. If all you care about is an interesting plot, give it a go and you may enjoy it more than I did.

    This is a free country where people have all kinds of different opinions, even the dumb ones. The author belongs to the latter bunch.

    I LOVED IT!

    I found myself unable to put this book down. I love the way the politics in this book parallel our own problems of today. Well done.

    Not worth it

    Don't waste your time. I think it had a promising premise, but the preaching and psedo philosophy / science gets old fast.

    Great!

    My dad actually recomended this to me. I put off reading it for a long time thinking it would be boring but I loved it i couldn't put it down. This is a really good book and it may not be for you but i thought it was great. There was a lot of politcal and logical resonong that took up a lot of dialogue but it was actually interesting. This book is worth the few bucks you will spend on it. Save it for a rainy day it might suprise you.

    BRAVO!!

    This novel is so much more than a great read. There are so many truths and insights into religion, society,, war... I could go on and on. This is brilliant. I will research this author and read everything he has in print. This should be required reading for all students. This is a book I will read again and again. There is just too much to gain and retain after one reading. This book needs to be studied and discussed.

    Fun Fantasy with a Message

    Mighty Hammer Down is a fun, engaging and easy read. But the best thing about this book is the discussion of both sides of major cultural issues that are currently being debated in most Western countries. So...it allows you to be entertained and learn something.

    Fantastic Read

    When I picked this book out, I didn't read a great deal about the author or plot, I like to be surprised; and surprised I was. The storyline was fantastic and characters enjoyable, but my high point was the philosophical, governmental, and scientific thought that was expertly placed into the story. A great read, and I have already recommended it to several of my friends.

    Great

    Definitely one of the better books that I have read recently, even though it was free, there were very few errors in the story. I really enjoyed many of tge messages and arguements that this book had to offer and was overjoyed to find that the second book in the series is already out. This is a really good book at 880 pages with the occasional skipped page number here and there. I highly recommend this to people of all ages with open minds and who can understand somewhat complex arguements on how the universe works from before it was common knowledge. If I could give this a rating of a hundred of a hundred, I would and I plan to purchase the next book of the seeies as soon as possible.

    I recommend this to anyone who loves a great book. If you like battles, magic, and gods even better. If you also like intrigue, romance, and fantasy, then this is the book for you! The Legend of Reason series is full of political turmoil, war, strife, love, and hate. It also has a little bit of metalsmithing and magic, and just a "teeny" bit of Mythology thrown is to spice things up. :P
