Production Quality/Cover Design:5        
Plot:4
Character development:4

Gravity is an edge-of-the-seat thriller that will keep readers riveted from the first page to the very end. The front cover graphic is powerful and will draw attention as readers peruse the crowded bookstore shelves. The back cover copy is powerful and will compel readers to open the book. There are no glaring grammar issues that need to be addressed. This book has some captivating scenes that will have readers holding their breath.

There are some compelling moments in this story. The high point is the action, which is visually exciting and inventive and would translate well to film. The epic battles between the aliens and humanity would certainly provide some strong imagery for the big screen

I picked this up during a free promo - I'm definitely something of a sci-fi nut. Unfortunately, although the general concept has potential, the writing was painful to read and rather overstretched itself. Grammar and punctuation errors are rife throughout the entire book, combined with stilted phrasing and glaring errors in terminology.
Lungs do NOT have "neuron structures" in them for example, and you don't need to describe each and every piece of technology as you go along - though this devolved into calling everything "gadgets" later in the book.

For passage examples, "He had a transparent screen pop up from the gadget that displayed the recorded video from Nazca. He then faced his audience." or ""Affirmative," said the robot and it deployed florescent spherical missiles aimed at the Russian landscape."

Passages jumped between locations, war rooms, and people's personal celebrations without notice most of the time, making portions harder to follow than they already were. By the end, the world is basically in ruins (if you keep track of the disasters that have have been happening throughout, REALLY so) but somehow it's been "saved" through something that probably should have destroyed the planet as well - and the "hospital sector" is seemingly untouched. The bit of foreshadowing at the end doesn't help.

On a technical level, the book was well formatted, though it could have used a table of contents for quick jumping. Unfortunately I would not recommend this book without a full rewrite and editing.

If you like to see everything go unexplainably and irretrievably wrong at an insanely increasing pace and an ending at exactly nowhere and at no time, then this is for you.

This was a fascinating albeit, a confusing read, a few too many characters to keep up with, (for me).
Would like to read a second book to find out what else happens with the aliens that remained, and Ryan and Sarah. I also could see this as a movie as it does move at a fast movie like pace.

The worst writing I've ever read in a book. It reads as if it wasn't written in English and was translated by a poor translation app. While the story idea was ok, the execution was terrible.
