A few months when we told there are #NO RESOURCES ON A FROZEN EARTH AND EVERYBODY #resources left on a frozen earth and everybody starving to death for one Avoid I m aware I m odd woman outI don t want to be I want to be in the group of AG Riddle loversIt s not Riddle it s me and that s obvious by the author s hordes of fansMy first AG Riddle so I have no connection to Riddle no fond memories of previous books and am out of my lane As many sci fi movies that I watch one would think I d like sci fi
books but not so I ve read several sci fi novels this year that were all highly recommended award but not so I ve read several sci fi novels this year that were all highly recommended award but nothing notable I usually suffer through them with high hopes that deflate the closer I get to the ending of each contender Why I didn t care for this It didn t snag me it didn t spark anything and I thought the ho hum sexual tension was a routine attempt at probable conflict I m willing to sacrifice the literary vein as far as stellar writing goes npi but the exchange should be for an exciting captivating hold on to your butts plot with characters memorable beyond 10 seconds after you close the book I want my mainstream fiction to instantly hook me with the story being eually driven by inventive plot and promising characters I do think the plot will eventually show potential because it seems to hint at something that has been done very successfully before Unfortunately the characters I found to be little than sketchy introductions that didn t evolve enough out of their embryonic stage to be engaging It s the first in a series I know but you have to want to come back and check in with characters you like Dr James Sinclair s stint in prison for mysterious reasons didn t do enough to whet my appetite his female counterpart Dr Emma Matthews was ust simply 2D She s smart co dependent has deteriorating bone mass due to her long stay in space and has a gummy bear for a heart But maybe Einstein s time slowing effects of acceleration and gravity also make the heart fall for whatever or whoever shares various high flying spacecraft The story is told from both space travelers perspectives and though it adds some switch in the narration Riddle hasn t solved the age old problem of having different characters speak from one head especially characters that seem still in the developmental stages For an apocalyptic thriller this Hate just whimpers while the author seems to spend time writing about trivial personal events than the looming wipeout of planet Earth Unless the author has come up with something truly uniue or petrifying as the adversarypass my pillow But again I think there is a hint of potential Without giving away anything I had some 2001 A Space Odyssey deja vu moments Geometry does not behave in space as we know it to do on Earth Regarding Winter World 1 I wish these characters all the best with their space exploits as they endeavor to save the world I d probably like the movie version if this book 1 comprisedust the first 15 20 minutes of the film the special effects were mind blowing the characters were dimensional interesting and believable there was back story to add the desire to hang on through the series to come and if the plot moved with intensity and speed As it is Winter World 1 felt like a couple of chapters uickly written and stretched into a book Written like a screenplay all talking heads with no chemistry between the characters I m not going to believe that the two main characters are falling in love Investigating the Supernatural just because the author tells me they are The male MC is a total Mary Sue too He received his doctorate in biochem on the same day as he got one in medicine He can analyze people better than a psychiatrist His only flaw is that he thinks people are better than they areI suppose he leaps tall buildings and travels faster than a speeding bullet in his spare time I ll save my reading time for Elizabeth Moon who writes compelling characters in believable situation.

Kept Rolling My Eyes Whenrolling my eyes when male proved to be great at everything he touched Dual first person telling not showing5 stars for imagination1 star for styleReads like a high school kid wrote it There are two protagonists and the writing annoyingly shifts between their first person narrative Their voices are very similar The grammar is mostly okay but the style is atrocious There are many four word sentences and the dialogue lacks nuance and depth Perhaps Riddle s worst work In a startling about face it looks like I am the odd #one out for actually liking this book even though it rated uite highly #out for actually liking this book even though
rated uite highly our months fires heatwaves and years of drought I found this story set in the very near future about the earth facing a sudden ice age and thought it would make a nice change I really didn t know what to expect and found myself fully immersed in ta da science fiction This is not a genre I read widely and certainly not lately Which might explain why I enjoyed it My expectations were not high I m not a fan of sci fi so I don t have a lot to compare this toNotwithstanding the fact that the main characters seemed too good to be true and the science may or may not have been plausible I really don t know the actual premise was different The whole book was different to anything I have read In my view that is a huge plus after many very derivative and predictable thrillersThis was the first book in a trilogy The earth has been inexplicably getting colder and humanity is under threat as people move to warmer places places below sea level ie Death Valley Anywhere they can get to NASA has launched some probes via the International Space Station ISS to measure the sun s radiation They find that the whole area of space around the earth is receiving much less solar radiation than normal And the ice continues to advance One of the probes spots a strange artefact before it is destroyed This thing Sturm-Liouville Problems just shouldn t be there Then the ISS itself it pelted by debris and is effectively destroyed There is one survivor Commander Emma MatthewsMeanwhile federal agents spring Dr James Sinclair from a federal penitentiary He is some kind of genius a medical doctor who has never practised but is also ualified in biomechanical engineering and ended up being some kind of robotocist guru We don t know why he was in prison until much later He is rushed to NASA which is mounting a hasty space mission to study the artefact and to try and work out how and why the sun is being blocked from earth On the way they detour slightly to rescue Emma who is still drifting around in a damaged escape module from the ISS Yes I know it s all very unbelievable but it was a heck of a story at least for one not accustomed to the genre Most of the narration is first person from Emma and James and much of the action takes place in space I should probably stop there As for the detractors I m not sure why the criticism In sci fi as in horror pretty much anything goes While it may not have been plausible it certainly hung together and made sense within the narrative Anyway I really enjoyed theourney and I m now off to get book 2 Not an enjoyable read and uite poorly written I felt like I was forcing myself to finish the latter third of the book Make Me Yours (Make Me, just so I could move on to reading something else as uickly as possible I doubt any other book includes the word drone uite as many times as this one either The book is presented through two main characters a Male know it all with apparently no flaws and a female astronaut I agree with many of the other reviews on here the female lead turned from a strong interesting character into the whiny girlfriend in a short space of time I won t be rushing to read the seuel as the plot really wasn t entertaining enough Too many strange timeumps and inexplicable plot holes building 9 identical space ships in.
