Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars I hoped for more., March 3, 2012
This review is from: Abaddon (Paperback)
I really liked the sounds of this book when it was sent for review. I've just watch the Resident Evil films and so the hear this involved a flesh eating disease kinda made it get my attention. I was hoping it would receive 5 stars, but sadly I was a little disappointed.
Roy wants to live a quiet and simple life and is currently grieving the loss of his wife. He and his son Mark move and he becomes a teacher. What he doesn't know yet it that he will be needed to save the world from chaos and destruction. Hell on earth.
The Story swaps and changes with each chapter, from first person perspective to third. I found this very annoying and it broke my concentration. It also made it rather hard to keep up with everything that was going on. The writing and descriptions are good, I just wish the author would have made up his mind whether he was going to write the full story if first or third person.
The storyline is good, but I did find myself skimming some of the pages. There is a little too much detail in parts and things that are completely irrelevant to the story. This made the story drag out. I can't say there is anything unique about it either since I have read stories like this many times and seen many films like it.
That being said Larry Gaffney has the potential to be a great writer. He has a good imagination and I'm sure he will continue on and create some interesting stories.

Many thanks to the author for submitting this for an honest review.
