Book Review: Maximal Reserve
Review by Bonnie at Grandma Bonnie's Closet
The story is about Philip Channing, a brilliant geophysicist/computer science guy. Philip is hired by Axcess Energy Company to work on a top secrete project. The story takes Philip over the Atlantic in a helicopter hopping from oil rig to oil rig and finally landing on a research ship in the Atlantic ocean. This is where Philip will look deep into the oceans depths farther than most have ever seen. The story takes its reader on a wild ride of espionage and terrorism.
My View: Maximal Reserve has all the ingredients of a great fictional book conspiracy, drama, suspense, death, crooked politicians, and even a little romance. I like to see the character in a story portrayed with average human abilities. Now, what I mean by this is the character should be human like and not be able to leap over tall buildings, read minds or have x-ray vision. Although Philip is portrayed as having a brilliant mind his character was believable. He had to fight like any real person might have to under such circumstances.
I would recommend this book to my friends to read with a warning that the book has many technical details and explanations that might be a little distracting to some readers. Over all I give the Writer a 10 out of 10 for such a great story.
