Highly recommend for someone looking for fun, escapist reading.?
My only problem is waiting for my check so I can buy the next two. I hope to read much more from Mr. Meyer.
Maybe I've watched too much "Star Trek" to find the highly advanced, space-faring humans colonizing an already inhabited planet acceptable. It surprises me that such an advanced ship would not have a backup plan if one planet didn't work out.
The editing was truly poor. Paragraphs had sentences in both present tense and past tense, hyphens were improperly used, and the punctuation was almost enough to make me stop.
It was an okay book. Not terrible, not great, but passable. I gave it two stars on Goodreads, but there it counts as "It's okay", and on Amazon it's "I don't like it". It was enjoyable enough to kill an evening with.
This book is exciting and terrific adventure that would appeal to teens and adults. As everyone adjusts to where they are and what's happened they finally colonize on Avalon and learn to coexist with the neat tribals the Avalonians. But during this time there is trouble by Rikters, dinosaurs coming to destroy and kill them while security chief AL Clark finds out something exciting and yet alarming about himself. Turns out it may be the key to helping the colony from these Rikters.
I love this book great beginning to a series and have no problem with purchasing the second one.
It's an enjoyable read. I didn't find it to be groundbreaking but I had no problem maintaining my interest throughout the whole thing. I did have a couple of complaints however.
-The plot arc is unconventional. There was no real climax to the story, it just sorta ended. Possibly the author is planning a series of books? That's fine, but I would have liked a more gratifying ending on this book.
-There were no tyrannosaurus rexs as depicted on the book cover. Just a type of 10 foot tall dinosaur called a riktor. Which were cool, but if I was the author I would have put in an exciting t-rex fight at the story's climax.
-The story did have several typos and errors and needs a proofreader. I was able to look past them, but readers sensitive to that kind of thing may find themselves annoyed.
The storyline is full of little twist and turns which kept me glued to its pages. The author has done a great job of developing a tale that is full of surprises and the unexpected. I found this story easy to follow and get deeply into.
The characters developed by Jonathan G. Meyer are very believable and real. They could easily be people you know and are friends with. This made the story come alive.
I really enjoyed reading Al Clark by Jonathan G. Meyer and I highly recommend this book to all readers.
