Deepsix

Entertaining science fiction and a fun ride. As usual, McDevitt shows a real talent for pacing and an engaging story. If you are looking for the depth and elegance of Tolkien or Herbert, this isn't your book. If you are looking for a fun book to immerse yourself in for a while, McDevitt is your man. I agree with the previous reviewer, the typos are annoying and really inexcusable. E-publishing doesn't mean the end of editors and whoever checked this book should have his/her pay cut.

The Academy book II ,

Deepsix

This e-book had extensive errors throughout. While the book was well written all the spelling errors (scanning issues that were not caught?)
definitely detracted from the enjoyment of the read.

Life-one ,

Awesome

Although I think ancient shores is Jack's best work, but Deepsix is almost just as good. A total page turner.
