The beginning of this book starts out kind of slow in my opinion because they mainly talked about everyone's jobs at SG-C, but it quickly changes as you read on with lots of action throughout the book. I was used to this pattern because the same thing happens on the T.V show which I watch often. I think the middle of the book is my least favorite part because they use crude language and mainly dealt with preparations for the mission and it did not have much action. The end of the book is my favorite because it is where all the action is, like when the team fights giant moths and tubenecks (a praying mantis type of creature). The action was very intense, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I would not put the book down.
The book is also humorous because O'Neill is always making jokes. It is also a bit confusing sometimes like when someone named Major Dave Morley was telling a story about when his team was attacked and did not mentioned any details about the event.Read more ›
beginning, the success of the Stargate project has demanded absolute secrecy. But it won't be secret for long.... A hotshot reporter has been brought into the most restricted area of the StarGate base. He's witnessed the Stargate in action, and wants answers. But he'll get more than a headline when Col. Jack O'Neill and his team decide to show him exactly how dangerous the universe can be...."
I did like the first half. The author had obviously done some research; the first chapter of the book is from Hammond's POV has he goes through his morning routine, and I found it mildly interesting. There's also - as the title suggests - a political element that felt like it could have been inspired by 'Secrets'. However, there seemed to be an overabundance of original characters -- too much of them and not enough of SG-1 in a book that's only 198 pages. And - and I'm not exactly sure how else to describe this - it didn't FEEL like Stargate.
There just wasn't that sense of familiarity. The resolution was cliched. And there was also the seemingly inevitable mistakes with Sam's rank <g> This one wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either.
