an OK book

I enjoyed elements of this book - the idea of humans being overtaken by intelligent hybrids worked well. It moved at a decent pace, wasn't hard to follow, and a good ending which tied things up well and didn't leave the reader hanging. The story was filled with a few well placed unexpected twists, which always ups the interest level. There are some passages that were a bit too unbelievable and I felt the author lost his track and it got a bit tedious when the main character is fleeing from country to country to rally together resistance fighters. I agree that this is very light fluffy sci fi fiction for passing the time, but if you like this kind of thing then it's quite a good book. Definitively aimed at the late teen market.

good but not overwhelming

An honest sci fi thriller. Maybe too sentimental. sci fi might not please to pure thriller lovers. Good, but not outstanding performance of Matt Bomer, excellent in the series "White collar" but not at his best here.
I didn't like mixing music and words at the beginning of each part. Makes understanding words more difficult.
Chapters seemed to be gathered into sections without any clear plan.

Toys - James Patterson

Fantastic fast paced thriller, I devoured it like a hungry dog! Narrator is very easy to listen to, only drawback over 100 chapters. Patterson at his best.

Bond plus Superman

This is a teenagers book, if you are an adult move on. Very American with some background lift music. Definitely Sci-Fi light.
