One stormy night, a lonely college junior sat in his starkly lit college dorm room, deciding how best to procrastinate on all things "school."

Escapist literature gets a lot of leeway with me. I mean, it’s there for the sole purpose of passing someone’s downtime. Characters are usually walking clichés, and the plot revolves around something along the lines of: “we only have X amount of time to do something or Y is going to happen.” I’m oka Leggi tutto

Este libro me ha resultado fascinante! Pocas veces he leido algo que me tuviera constantemente en tensión, mordiéndome las unes para saber que iba a pasar a continuación. Era como estar viendo una película de Misión Imposible. No era lo que esperaba encontrarme al leer la sinopsis pero el cambio no Leggi tutto
It has taken me a long time to pick up this book in the series, partly because my local library didn't have it, partly because I can only handle so much 'action' in a book. What I mean by that is - the details in Matthew Reilly's books coupled with the magnitude of technical information seems to los Leggi tutto
