Leap (Breakthrough #2) Reviews
I can't wait for the next one
Having just finished this thrilling book that combined military, scientific, and science fiction so seamlessly I now must wait a month to see the third book in this series. I can't wait! I'm definitely addicted to this author and so glad I found him. Go Michael!!!!
Popcorn-Unterhaltung & ein wenig Science to go!
Der Science Thriller In der Tiefe ist der zweite Band der Breakthrough-Trilogie von Michael Grumley. Im ersten Band gelang es einer Forschergruppe mit Hilfe des Interspecies-Kommunikationssystems „ISIS“ erstmals mit Delfinen zu kommunizieren, was die Aufmerksamkeit des Militär auf sich zog. Band 1: Breakthrough war ein hollywoodreifes Action-Spektakel mit wissenschaftlicher Note, das ihr vor dem Beginn von Band 2 lesen solltet.
Leap is the second installment in Michael C. Grumley's Breakthrough series, and it is just as action-packed and fun as book one, Breakthrough. There's nothing abstruse or complicated about these novels; rather they are straightforward and exciting, offering characters to love and situations to transport and engross. They are precisely the "summer read" type of escape I look for when I pick up an adventure scifi novel.
One word comes to mind: "Wow!"
My only regret in reading this book, is that I didn't re-read "Breakthrough" prior to reading this book. The author has shown, once again, that he has mastered his genre. The character development was very well done and the story was full of page-turning suspense. I did find a few typos, but they took nothing from the story. If you enjoy a combination of suspense, science, philosophy and science fiction, this is your book!
Although science fiction is not one of my preferred genres and I almost always stay away from it, this series is so well written that I can't help but devour each volume in it.
I had not read "Breakthrough" before reading "LEAP". There were a few references to the first book but those references did not interfere with my enjoyment of this book. The characters are well developed and consistent. This plays a major part in allowing the reader to stay involved with a plot line that takes one into a future we have not experienced yet plants the seeds of wonder that we could someday. The ending is satisfying as the characters chose to make choices for th ...more
Some new characters introduced so it got less easy to follow, but still very good.
A successful follow up to the first book and continues the strengths begun there. I liked the fact that this book 'opened up' a bit more than the first.
