It’s very hard to put down, and so sad that you can’t keep going once you hit the end. Can’t wait for book5

This book appears to be the exact plot of the Prometheus movie. That’s fine but I think it should be made clear in the description. Personally I have no interest in repeating the same story in different media.

US centric view of the world - predictable

Sorry to say I didn't enjoy it. I think the worst thing about it is the nationalistic tone. It sounds a bit like propaganda written by US security forces as a recruitment tool. I dont imagine it is, just that it's thin on story and just, well pushy about how big my gun is etc etc.

Boring, propaganda. Sounds like the shit a Trump dribbles. Definitely the worst Criton I've ever read.

The plot was predictable, but unlike other Dan Brown books it advances achingly, labouring over small details again and again despite their obviousness. As usual with most fiction works the IT references are hilariously inaccurate. This seems to be a book with no effort or research put into it.

Beautifully crafted

A quaffable rich and authentic taste of life as an expat in Europe. I felt transported back, and now I'm 'homesick' all over again.

This is not a just reading but a full production complete with sound effects and actors. The pace is action movie fast and the script a perfect fit for the alien series.
Brilliant!

Why so many good reviews?

It's well written, but it isn't enough to keep my interest. I read it thru to the end hoping for improvement or just closure. Even that was allusive.
The main reason I give it only 1 star, is that the timeline constantly chops back and forth. It's terribly frustrating and intolerable on an audio book. Perhaps others don't mind that in the same way my partner can do multiple things at once. But for me it just jarring and destroys he enjoyment of being immersed in a story.

Bloody hell

I hate bloody Beck. Every time I get a book like this I'm kept on the edge of my seat like some non-stop action movie and can't put the thing down. Kills my productivity. 😄

More of the monster but with yet another clever twist. I note many preferred relic and indeed you should read it first. But I found this to be just as worthy. Unlikely sequels it manages to explore plenty of new (under) ground.
