This review is from: Shift (Paperback)
I got so caught up in these that they were hard to put down. Part way through the first one I was already ordering the second. Mr. Howey has created a strong story and series in both the Shift and Silo series.

I don't always agree with Zack's musings and some have complained that this is just a compilation of his daily blogs but for those of us that like books such as myself it's great. Some really good practical information contained within.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well., Dec 23 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works well. My only complaint is that if you are trying to meter for a decent exposure you can't. The flashes all put out a "pre-flash" that can only be turned off in full manual which negates the advantage of having everything adjustable from the camera. For the price though you can't go wrong.

Fabric in the belt is a bit stiff and after about an hour of rowing it starts to cut in the arm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the third in the franchise., Dec 23 2014
It's just what it is. A bunch of older action stars getting together for a bit of a romp and filming it. Difference between you and I is they get to fly to Europe, blow stuff up, and still have money left over for dinner and a flight home. A little weak on plot but great on action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original, July 1 2014

The remake was not quite as campy as the original series. While the special effects were great I felt that I still would have liked to seen a little more character development.

3.0 out of 5 stars Copy stand use, July 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We needed a new set of lights for a copy stand for photographing medical samples. The lights themselves are good construction and should last a long time. The reason for three stars is the switches in on one of the units wouldn't work and had to be repaired. When it was taken apart I discovered that instead of screws holding stripped wire in place there were two very flimsy copper prongs designed to cut into the plastic shielding of the wire in order to create a circuit.

This review is from: The Martian: A Novel (Hardcover)
Mark Watney is now officially my hero.

Andy Weir has created a character that is extremely easy to identify with. Mark is marooned on Mars and has to learn to survive in a near vacuum. For most of us that would pretty well be the end of the story, fortunately in real life NASA sends some extremely well trained and intelligent individuals on missions and in this fictional piece Mark is similarly equipped and logically and plausibly overcomes these challenges with the occasional screw up.

The story is well crafted, difficult to put down once you start reading and not overly laden with the technical aspects of survival in a hostile environment.
