By Bryan on March 7 2005
Format: Audio CD
Halo: The Flood is the second Halo book, and its events take place during the time of the game itself. While this gives an interesting opportunity for the reader to read about the adventures of the Terran Marines on Halo that were not seen at all during a large stretch of the game, and a subplot about a Covenent Elite's quest for honor and vengeance against our dear friend Master Chief, the book suffers somewhat compared to the other 2 in the series simply because of the timeframe it's set in.
Most people who read this book have already played through the single-player portion of Halo on the Xbox or PC, and having to read through a section that they've already experienced was slightly tedious for me. Sections such as The Library, which was considered by many to be one of the more monotonous areas of the game, became almost a chore to read through; I slogged through it once, I don't want to slog through it again in print!
Still, the battle scenes are well written and showed a familiarity with the Halo universe; all the major characters such as the Master Chief, Cortana, and Captain Keyes are consistent with what we've come to expect from the game and Nylund's novels in the series, and I was hard-pressed to find any technical discrepancies with the established canon. The Terran Marine contingent's fight for survival with the Covenent is also quite riveting, filling in some of the blanks that were left in the game. Halo: The Flood is a wonderful way for people who may not be into gaming to continue with the sci-fi story that Bungie wrote for the game, and is a solid read for those who finished it.
So, as a book on its own, Halo: The Flood gets 4 stars in my opinion. If you've already completed the game, then I'll downgrade my rating to 3.5 stars. While the other two books in the Halo series are better, this is still a solid sci-fi read!

Read the first book. Play halo 1. Then read the third. Enough said. Skip this if you played halo 1. As for a book It was a good read. And there was content and chapters that were not in halo 1 that were interesting. Worth your time as a book stand alone if you don't play the games. If u play the games. Put it down.

The first Book is better then the second book becuse the second book is slower and William C. Dietz could of don better on it. I think this Book would of ben the best if Eric Nelond Did it.
