Primeval: Extinction Event, By Dan Abnett

"Anomalies are starting to appear, doorways in time to worlds we can barely imagine. The anomalies are conclusive proof that the past exists in a fourth dimension as real and solid as those we already know. Our job is to predict and contain them."

Title: Primeval- Extinction Event

Author: Dan Abnett

Pages: 272

G: Scifi

Rating: 4/5

Story: 3/5

Characters: 3/5

Cover: 2/5

I really like the show so why shouldn't i like the book series? I really got into this book. The main characters i really liked and the ones in the background where OK. The first three pages were slower for me, but i completely loved it when Chapter one started. The imaginative illustration was very good and the characters that would have to be realistic since it is a show really related to them. The action was good and was very head first. Surprisingly with this book i didn't want to put it down.

Plot: An anomaly pops up and lets out an Enteldon that hungrily and fearsly goes on a rampages on Oxford Street. Not long after Cutter and his team head out to try and save lives when they find out that they have lost when a few lives are lost. And getting worse their is something definitely different with the anomalies, that are making them go crazy and weak. But what is it?
Cutter wants to make improvements in their area of containing anomalies when suddenly a Russian Scientist and a Dangerous Russian Soldier appear and puts him, Connor, and Abby in a situation that become more of life and death as they go on.

I am a bit sad that the season has ended and won't be back until next year for the last and final season. And for Lost they did not stop leaving you on a Cliff hanger, i think this is one of the biggest Cliff hanger yet. And you won't hear the out come the next week.
Can't wait for the last Season~

Star Trek!!!!

I just saw this movie yesterday night and it was sooo good. If you have not seen it you must. It was just so good with the characters. I have not see the old star trek original but this movie really makes it that you don't have to, to enjoy the good story line and action. I know a lot of people who don't like this sort of movie that liked it and thought it was really good. My sister for one of them. It is one of the best movies this year!

What Book is It?? #2

I wonder if you can guess this quote; beginning or ending paragraph from a book.
Suggest the book and author.
It is the beginning paragraph,
He is a famous English Writer,
and This should be HARD...
'NOW, what i want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which i bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which i bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!'
Any Suggestions??

Bloody Jack, L.A Meyer

Title: Bloody Jack
Author: L.A Meyer
What genre: Young Adult
Pages: 320

Rating: 5/5
Characters: 4/5
Story: 5/5
Cover: 4/5

I must say that i really loved this book. The beginning really went well and we really got into our character before most of the action started off. Second i love how L.A Meyer wrote it, it was not a girl telling her story or another person telling it but Jacky telling it as most of the things were happening right then. I loved that! I don't think i have read a book that has done that. It was a great idea. And Third i never once got board of Miss Jacky Faber, which is a real pleasure for me because i need something fresh in a book and sometimes i don't get fed up with the book but with the characters because they all sound the same, So the characters were very good.

Plot: When Mary Faber has no where to turn, after the death of former gang leader and like brother, she decides to make a new start. And that start is on his Majesty's ship the HSM Dolphin, but their is a twist she Mary Faber pretends to be a he and starts by cutting her hair and changing her name to Jack "Jacky" Faber. It is the life she has always wanted and the friends she makes go a long way. All she has to do is keep pretending and the "Deception" will do its job. But as she struggles with changes and on going action on board and off can she keep this huge secret and not be put off the ship?

Next in the series
~Curse of the Blue Tattoo~

It is seriously a very good book.

Primeval !

Season 2 Coming Soon! On May 29 Friday 2009, Scifi.

Season 1, episode 6.........Primeval


Wow! I mean Wow. It is a very detailed and confusingly brilliant ending to season 1. It is not although confusing to some like me and other regulars. I was surprised by the affair of Helen and Steven, and i knew it was gonna happen but the change for Claudia was weirdly interesting. So far the future monster was the best, and it ended all cliff hanger-y. I can't wait for Season 2.

I found a very cool Web Site that has about 70 books and a few 100 short story's online. They don't have every thing and you have to read it online unless you can print it off but it is nice if you need a book that they have.

The Web Site Name is:

Check it out if you like.

Female writer- Born in England, 1849- and it is a story about a little orphaned girl-

"When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It was true, too.

Although Katniss may be skilled with a bow and arrow and adept at analyzing her opponents next moves, she has much to learn about personal sentiments, especially her own.

Doctor Who: The Last Dodo. By Jacqueline Rayner

Rating: 4/5

Characters: 3/5

Story: 5/5

Cover: 3/5

Title: Doctor who; The Last Dodo

Author: Jacqueline Rayner

Pages: 247

I was thinking how they were gonna bring in the Dodo and keep it always part of the main story line and the author did just that. It was brilliantly constructed. And i can't believe i am saying this, for a science fiction novel it had some good facts, Mixed of course with humor. As always i got punked, i had a totally different subject for the villain but i was so horribly wrong. The characters were very good. The Doctor and Martha were very real and the Museums curator was very detailed in her side. Some of the other characters were not so much in the book so i can't name every other characters right off hand but the main people and animals i can. The plot is based mostly on extinction and as you read you really feel bad for animals. Ones that are endangered, extinct, and the ones in cadges.
I really liked this book and it is one of my favorite Doctor Who Books that i have read yet.

The Doctor wants to take Martha some where special, but she can't figure out where. What would you do if the whole universe was open up to you? That is exactly the situation she is in. After some thought she suggests a visit to see the Dodo, not in a Museum, not in captivity, but before humans invaded and they were happily off and in their own lush territory. But that is not exactly were they end off, they do see a Dodo but in the Museum Of The Last Ones. The only job of the museum is to capture and preserve in suspended animation the last of every species. And that is were Eve, the museum's curator come into play. She makes it her special interest to find out and preserve one out of every species.
But she has a problem.... some one or something is stealing the Earth sections exhibits. So the Doctor and Martha Hop on the case, but how long can the Doctor keep his secret that he is the last of his kind?

X-Men Origins Wolverine

I saw it today.
( Lain I know you can't watch it but i wanted to post about it)
I really really liked it, it was one of the best movies i have seen in the theaters this year. I have all of the three movies and so i know the story line and every thing and it was very nice to find out more about the before of X-Men. There was action, romance (not soo soo much), and suspense to fill the movie. I really liked the ending because it closed the mystery for most of everything. It was sad and happy. This movie for scifi fans and super hero/mutant X-Men fans. But i suggest any one that wants to see it to see the first made movies first. But you don't have to, it just helps you to understand things more.
Sincerely BOSTan~
