I finally decided now, in the early years of the 21st Century, so figure out if the book was really that bad, or if my relative youth during that first reading was to blame. After some Googling on the recalled subject matter, I decided that the book must be Genesis by Harbinson. I got a copy for my Kindle and dove in.
Within the first few pages, I realized that my general dislike of the book back then was not due to my youth. It is quite simply a poorly written piece of literature. However, the central conceit remains strong and engaging. It is just too bad that the man who did the 'research' and put the story together does not happen to have the skill or talent one expects from a good author.
My major issues with Harbinson's writing 'style' are listed below:
- Boring structure, word use and syntax. In an opening passage about an encounter of a US Army bomber over WWII Germany, it seems like all statements issued by crew members are followed with the descriptive, "he bawled". For example (and with paraphrasing on my part); "We're all gonna die", bawled the captain. "They're coming at us again", bawled the waist gunner. "Aaiiieee", bawled the nose gunner. It really does read like that. While descriptive the first time it is used, it grows noticeable and tiresome after the first couple repetitions. Skilled authors know how to avoid this kind of thing.Read more ›
All of these errors are very distracting and break the flow of the story when you have to try to figure out what word is missing, or what the word should really be.
Did I mention I am only on chapter 4?
I am very disappointed in the quality of this book.
Well written, hard to put down, amazingly original given the subject matter and it wrapped up in a very satisfactory manner.
Of all the price 'O crap books that get turned in to screenplays, you finish this and wonder why no studio picked it up.
Harbinson writes a great UFO story based on his extensive archival research, and the whole premise of the novel will thrill the conspiracy theorist in you. If words like "UFO" and "conspiracy" get your mind working, grab this one . . . and wonder, "what if"

I don't have anything good to say about this book. I was looking for a book called Genesis when I found this one but this is not the one I was looking for. I will keep looking.Published on August 9, 2013 by Delores
