I found this book by accident doing a search on B&N, took a chance and ordered it and to my delight and suprise really enjoyed this King Kong yarn. The book loses some momentum 1/3 of the way in. It gets bogged down with how Kong was cloned. This part of the book is a bit slow. However, the second half of this story is fun, exciting, anyone who enjoys King Kong related movies or Jurrasic Park type themes is in for a real treat. Monster bugs, dinosaurs, King Kong, mercinaries, the second half of the book is action packed. A fun read.
Not sure why, but this is one book that was not processed properly when they converted it over to an electronic format. It was so garbled I could not read it. It came through with sentences shredded and paragraphs torn apart, and rendered it unreadable. They REALLY need to fix this book.
