The president and his small inner circle(I.C.) create a plan to save all life on earth and to spend billions of dollars to do this.They base this plan on information given to them by an 8th grade science teacher who says the diverted comet will miss earth by 100 miles.What,the government has no real scientists that can be trusted?
Then the I.C. decides that someone needs to be murdered.So they find a hit man and he drives a truck into the victim's car,running him off the road.Then the hit man drives away,just assuming the victim is dead.
Also,from a quick look on the internet,it seems a nuclear bomb will not explode due to a conventional explosion.
And finally,they send one man to divert this comet(the most important task in the history of the world) and they send him alone?In this 4 1/2 year journey,he can have a heart attack or go insane from being basically in solitary confinement.
There was one major problem that seemed to exist throughout the series. It would appear that no one bothered to edit the books. I know how words can be added or missed while in the process of writing and, unfortunately computers don't handle such things very well. And spell checkers have no clue as long as you spell the wrong word correctly. I know there are "grammar checkers" out there, but I have never seen one that works well. Besides, when you are writing the way someone might talk in broken English, a grammar checker is really useless. As far as I am concerned this is one place where a human can't be replaced by a computer. An editor needs to have a human brain that can actually understand what is being read. I have yet to see an AI that can do this. There are so many possible ways to express an idea in English that it takes a human to properly edit it.
In spite of the editorial problems, my understanding and enjoyment of the story was not decreased in the least. Even with all these errors I gave it 5 stars because the story was so good that it made the errors easy to overlook. That is one of the great things about the human brain. It will automatically fill in or correct things as it reads. Unfortunately this can be seen as a weakness also for the same reason. These errors can be easily overlooked as the story is being written so they never get fixed unless an editor who tends to be a perfectionist reads the book before it goes to press. So, I should have downgraded the series a little but how do you represent a 4.99 out of 5?
Kevin, if you want an editor for your stories I am available and I work cheap. I am somewhat of a slow reader because I am one of those few people who reads every word. I never learned to skim over words and, when reading a story like this one, I wouldn't want to skim because I would miss too many small details, and I love details. On the other hand, I have been reading for nearly 60 years so my slowness isn't because I can't read.
Excellent series. Don't skip even one book and definitely read them in order.
