If you want reality and a plausible plot stick to non-fiction. I personally pick up a Reilly book when I want to "watch" explosions. I don't care if things are realistic, I don't know any better. I do know that no Matthew Reilly novel ever fails to make my heart race, and this one actually made me cry and throw my book across the room. The character development isn't great, but for me the characters are only there to fill the spaces between explosions, gun shots and crashes. Any book by Reilly is a fun read, just don't analyze it and go with the flow.

Really enjoy this author, but the publisher should recall this version and fix the page turn errors in the formatting. I am 100 pages in and have had to use the "go to page #" function at least 15 times. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. Nook books and ebooks have been around long enough that this sort of thing should not happen. It ruins the reader's enjoyment of the book. And for those who think that's not what a review should address, think again. Poor sales drive decisions and readers should not pay for substandard work. Would anyone buy a hard copy that has pages out of order or stuck together? Heck no. So don't buy this messed up electronic version.

This was an entertaining book that has almost too much action.

Shane Scofield is a marked man in this lighting-fast adventure. Reilly actually takes it up a notch, if you can believe it, and there's not a single 'catch my breath' moment in the story. The downside is, there's too many "...and just at that exact moment..." lines and escapes that stretch believability too far, even for this kind of book. I still loved the book, but I hate occasionally feeling like I'm reading a comic book.

I couldn't put this book down!!! It was THAT good and THAT exciting! There was action on every page!!! I love how Scarecrow's marines are completely loyal to him and would give up their lives without hesitation to protect him. The scene where Mother and the Scarecrow fight was amazing! I specifically loved the dialogue afterwards. I had to reread that part several times because it was so touching! Great book! I am now rereading Ice Station and have just purchased the prequel Area 7. Waiting for the next Scarecrow book!!!!

Reilly has let all his readers down with a plot so impossible that only comic book characters could accomplish the tasks. The actions are so implausible that the story becomes ridiculous. Don't waste time on this book.

Having read every book by this author, I will never read another one after suffering through this 'Dick and Jane' primer. This story has no reality and makes no sense what so ever. This book is simply a comic book in paperback form. Don't waste your time.

This tale should properly be called 'graphic fiction.' All that's missing are the illustrations and the 'Crash! Zap! Boom!' Far too contrived to merit the price of admission.

This book is so focused on action that it is missing the narrative portion that creates a world that envelops the reader and draws him/her in. I never felt that the characters were facing a particular crisis like Temple or Ice Station, just loosely strung together action sequences that include lots of exclamation points. If you skip this one you won't miss anything.

I love Reilly's books, and this was a fun read, but he goes too far with driving the pace of the action. The plot is paper thin, and the characters are cardboard cutouts, with the exception of Scarecrow and Mother. There's always a certain suspension of belief required when reading in this genre, but Reilly carries some of the escapes to Roadrunner/Coyote level. He also overdoes it with the italicized '...and at that VERY moment..' Buy it in hardcover if you're a Reilly fanatic, otherwise wait for paperback.

Great action. Fun story. Can't wait for more.

One star is as low as I can vote. Action packed for sure, but not even comic book lovers could buy into this "plot". The enemy can shoot half a million rounds and never hit him, he just throws his gun up and kills two with every shot. Totally unbelievable. Ex: (Mag hooks can't stick to aluminum airplane skins)

Matt is really good. All of his books are really entertaining and gripping. I would highly recommend 7 deadly wonders, 6 sacred stones and 5 greatest warriors. I love the character of jack west jr... excuse me, huntsman. Anyways i havent completly read this book but i have heard a lot about it and i know it would be well worth your time to read any matthew reilly books. The one and only thing i would change about his books is the language. To much swearing... but that is the only... wait nope. I changed my mind. Too much detail of the end of people's lives... eyeballs comimg out, peices of flesh on the end of a sword, blood covering everything... i have a very imaginative mond so as i read i picture these things in my head... and i have a photograpic memory so those images dont go away... its kinda nasty... but hey i cant change what he writes... im not hatin but no me gusta... swaggie. 1D
