I seldom give one or two stars because I try to avoid reading books of that kind.

I have unfortunately bought these three books which I only read diagonally because they are meant for young americans (or maybe British) who believe in fairy tales about Atlantis, puritanism, the very good against the very bad, the great and altruiste view of one country (theirs) and who do not pay to much attention to illogical facts.

I gave 2 stars because it is not as bad as books of SF around God and religion.

2.5 stars simply because the book badly needs an editor.

HASH(0x8bb35e10) étoiles sur 5 Horrible Book 5 décembre 2014
Par D. Justice - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is an example of a decent idea that's been poorly executed. Very, very bad editing with obscene grammatical errors that left me wondering if English is even the author's native language. Strange syntax, illogical ideas and poorly thought out sentences make reading difficult (I gave up at around 54%). Contains stale technology that is present in a myriad of much better books-nothing really original. All-in-all, this book is only really useful as an example of how NOT to write. By far, this is the worst book that I've ever purchased and I'd really like my money back.

HASH(0x8bb35dd4) étoiles sur 5 A Rough Draft Published by Mistake 3 septembre 2014
Par Low Country Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Beginning with the “Time Line”, I am convinced that the author is not well versed in geography, international affairs, alternative power initiatives, and the state of scientific advancement. I was constantly distracted by statements, that don’t ring true. I am sure that the book would make Neil deGrasse Tyson’s head spin. Getting the science right, IS important in science fiction.

The story drags with details that are unnecessary to move the plot forward. Orphan tangents had me searching back in the text to see if I missed something. It was very hard to not skim over long dialogs that comprises the bulk of the book.

The most glaring distraction throughout the book is the lack of editing that left too many incorrect words, punctuation errors and sentence fragments. A Composition 101 teacher would “make this text bleed.” A creative writing professor would advise the author to remove the unnecessary words and tangents that suck the life out of the story.

A nice rough draft, the story has potential but it has no business being offered for sale.

Giving up at 50% as the butchering of the English language is too much to bear. The potential is there in this story but the execution is dreadful.

I am reading, or tried to read this *new revised edition*. I could not get more than a quarter through it. I don't mind a few errors here and there--the wrong word or a missed plural or little things. But this book is bad to its core. The story is mediocre. The writing is all around terrible in terms of errors and structure. Every sentence. Sort of reads like this. Even the ones that don't. Do. For Some reason.
In fairness to sentences, some of the 'sentences' are just clauses, so I suppose its not every sentence. Also United States is not plural. 'United States are' is INCORRECT. The timeline at the beginning is just absolutely terrible and is just a warning of things to come.

Disregard most of the reviews. They are clearly bots or paid reviewers and regurgitate their reviews across many products.
This book was not written by someone with a grasp of English. I'm sure the story is great and would be better in their native language and that the dialogue would flow soooo much better. Was this book written in another language first and then translated to English by a computer program? Was this book written solely by a computer? Does the author have no access to English speakers who can proof it?

And paragraphs man, paragraphs. They help us all out.

To sum up: the author might be brilliant in other areas but the English written word is not his medium. This book should be re-categorized under Horror Stories for English Teachers. Or Non-fiction case study in the need for more English classes in schools.
