  • I didn't have the same experience with "The Athena Project: A Thriller" as I did with Scot Harvath taking care of the dirty work. It was a bit hard to accept the torture scenes when Scot was in charge, but having women do it added another layer of discomfort for me. However, putting that aside, I always appreciate the mystical and scientific elements as well as the underlying story in Brad Thor's books. I've read quite a few of them.
  • These badass ladies in the military are no joke! They're all about getting the job done. Using either their first or last names, some of them have last names that can easily pass as first names. The author truly demonstrates how clueless men can be when it comes to writing about women!
  • I thought it was just alright, I mean, I was hoping it would delve more into the process of choosing and training the unit, but it didn't. The action took a bit of a sci-fi turn at some point. If you're a fan of Cussler, you'd probably have a good time with this one.
  • This appears to be written with the sole intention of hoping for someone to make it into a movie. It moves along at a silly pace, the characters jumping from one scene to the next with the flimsiest of premise moving them along. As soon as one character thinks of what might be the answer to a question, that must be the correct answer, suspend disbelief, and move on. The reader is supposed to believe that this team can solve the world's problems by simply showing up. It was a very interesting premise and set up, but the execution is weak and boring.
