Review: Earth Quarantined: Book 1 of Earth Quarantined series

Earth Quarantined: Book 1 of Earth Quarantined series Earth Quarantined: Book 1 of Earth Quarantined series by D.L. Richardson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a very well-written book with believable characters and some great twists to keep the pages turning. It wasn't edge-of-your-seat, but close. The way Richardson developed the alien characters was masterful and frightening. I'm really surprised, though that after being with humans for so long, not more of being human rubbed off on them.

Character development is a hot-button with me and these characters are a gaggle of very humanized, 3-D characters. They all have motives, and each is set to achieve the goal. When these goals clash, a lot of tension prevails.

Really nice touches with technology, scenery, and different settings really come alive.

I highly recommend it. because of all of the above and because the premise is very different from the norm. Good reading experience.

Review: The Driver

The Driver The Driver by David Nuckles
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I am not a fan of flashbacks at all. This storyline has all the qualities of flashbacks when the main character flips from one storyline to another--what actually happened and what the Driver might imagine is blurred. The premise is rather fantastical and hard to set aside disbelief.

The author tries to answer the question: "Can a person be in two places at once."

Actually, halfway through the book, the author had proven only that the Driver was on auto-pilot or had zoned out. Then the other half of the book the Driver is trying to dissect his movements to see if he actually saw what he saw or not. That was kinda interesting.

However, the whole thing was spoiled by the several pages of regurgitated research the author does that leads the reader to think this book is going to be about THIS and it is actually about THAT. And, to me, THAT was a bit disappointing.

Two of Five Stars.
