Mighty Hammer Down Review
on February 28, 2012
Mighty Hammer down is a terrific book that follows war, philosophy, love and Mythology. I found this book very interesting and fun to read as the story line and plot was truly amazing. What I found most fascinating with this book was the ideas that the writer brought to the table. He would include a character talking about anything from the trials and challenges of war, as well as have the most interesting conversation about the Gods we call myths' as well as the world around us.
My favourite point was of how the moon stays in the sky because it is falling. Although that idea may not have been completely original, the way that the writer made the characters discuss and debate about it made it feel as though Mr. Guyton had had the discussion himself. What I also found most intriguing about the book and its story is how he had shaped his own Gods and religious views. The lore and information that was included with the Gods, as well as their creation and how they are sustained is truly amazing and it is quite possibly the most attention grabbing and detailed part of this book.
Of all the truly amazing characters presented in this book, I am forced to choose Rommus to be my favourite. His character is a truly amazing, intelligent person. Rommus is the main reason for the philosophy aspect of this book as it is his character that presents these well thought ideas. I also feel that I come to choose him as a favourite character because I became attached to his character through the compassion and care he shows to those who respect him, and also because of the truly horrific circumstances that we come to endure with him.
However a [small] downside was that there were some spelling errors, which could confuse the reader at times, and some of the dialogue would easily lose the reader as you would forget who was talking or you wouldn't know at all. But apart from those small errors, there is nothing else at all that is wrong with this book.
This book is a truly amazing read to quite literally anyone and everyone. However anyone that holds an interest in war, Mythology or even just likes to have their knowledge tested will enjoy this book so much more as it covers all of those things. I highly suggest for anyone and EVERYONE to get this book. It's inspiring, different, interesting and fun to read, and it will definitely keep you begging for more.
