My work is fantasy, but it is an allegory for the modern political struggles in the United States.

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.

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.

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.

. . . 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.

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

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

This novel's title does not do it justice. Gods, men, mages and creatures battle for dominance while a single man becomes a God through no act of his own. Philosophically speaking, this novel is heads above the average medival era style novels i have read. The author makes clear the beliefs of each character and has well planned plot. Enjoyable to read

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.
