I don't want to give anything away but if you have read all of the event group books, you have to read this as it basically how the event group got its start. And it is a very VERY interesting start!
But wait, there's more: Another big problem I have with "The Mountain" was Golemon's choice of character names. The main protagonist is John Henry Thomas -- three "first" names right there, and the principal supporting actor is Jessop "Jessy" Taylor. Maybe it was me, but I had a difficult time separating "Thomas" from "Taylor" as the author switched from calling the characters by their given names to their family names. Golemon did, too, because I counted three incidents where the wrong family name was written in the story context; Taylor for when Thomas was clearly intended, or vice-versa. In addition, two minor characters, both lieutenants and officers of the USS Argo, had last names ending in "F". When outlining the book and working on early character development, how difficult is it to spend some time with a phone book and come up with markedly different and unique names for characters, so that readers don't have to have keep them separated in mind while reading, because the author is so unimaginative that names character names all begin with different letters, both given and family names. Golemon can certainly keep writing Event Group novels, he just needs a new editor.
I loved the first 3-4 Event thrillers so much. But these don't even make sense, and that's not counting the innumerable typos, factual/geographic errors, and continuity issues.
Did he lose his editor? Is he farming them out?
The difference seems so distinct, it makes me wonder what's going on. Its like different people writing under one name.
