had me cracking up I answer phones and you have no idea how many times I have wanted to do this to people.This was a great story and one that I recommend everyone check out The story covers several different genera s and was one that I couldn t wait to see what was going to happen next I received Deep Quarry for free from Roger Charlie in exchange for an honest review Reviewed by LoriBook

I would like I shouldn t have worried these books were easy to read, entertaining, and kept me on the edge of my seat.Mr Stith is a lover of science fiction and his work has won numerous awards After reading his books, I can see why He captures the reader within the first few paragraphs of his book and he won t let them go until the end.I loved the humor that he puts into his books, its dry and sarcastic and just plain funny.My first review is for Deep Quarry and my initial thoughts when I was reading this was that the planet Dallad where the story took place reminded me of Luke Skywalker s home planet from Star Wars Dallad was hot and desert like and so was Luke s planet as well I wouldn t want to live there, I have fair skin.I really enjoyed the protagonist Ben, he was a good guy, he s smart, and perceptive I wasn t sure if I was going to like him, it seems that in fiction, private detectives are usually portrayed as not nice people Luckily for me, Ben was a good guy.I also liked Kate She was smart, and funny, and was the perfect counterpoint for Ben.Any romantic endeavors within this book are glossed over as the main focus is on the sci fi element This isn t a complaint, as I really liked the story, I m just reiterating the fact that this is not romance.I loved the fact that even in a ski fi book on a planet that s not earth there are still archaeologists that are studying non human people I think that s so cool What s even cooler is that someday, this might actually happen.I know that this is a romance blog, and I know that this is not romance, but I have to say that any readers out there that liked Star Wars, or Star Trek, would like this book Give it a chance, the reader may like it I have never read any book by the author but since Deep Quarry is a mixture of sci fi and mystery both of which I love I figured why not take the opportunity and start with this one Honestly this was an okay read for me I liked the writing but there really wasn t anything about the book that stood out I love the sci fi aspect to it because come on, who wouldn t It was also different from what I expected There was so much humor and I definitely didn t expect that from a book such as this one I have never read any book by the author but since Deep Quarry is a mixture of sci fi and mystery both of which I love I figured why not take the opportunity and start with this one

different from what I expected There was so much humor and I definitely didn t expect that from a book such as this one I have to say that s probably one of the things I really liked about the book.John Stith has written A LOT of other books so rest assured I d check those out too.I received an e copy of the book to read and review I loved every moment of this fast moving investigative sci fi book Also, it was the first book I read from front to back and got me hooked on science fiction genre. Wouldn t call this a really successful blend of science fiction and mystery I like both, And there are others who do it better Asimov This is okay. I read this book years ago and thought it was great, but decided to re read it.How I thought this was so great I don t know John Stith is a great writer, I can only assume this was his first attempt at writing or I have a odd copy or something The whole book uses the same words over and over and over and over., the words are like the same words, the story was very spherical, like a sphere, the sphere of the story, was like walking in a sphere, you know how a sphere is very spherical, this s I read this book years ago and thought it was great, but decided to re read it.How I thought this was so great I don t know John Stith is a great writer, I can only assume this was his first attempt at writing or I have a odd copy or something The whole book uses the same words over and over and over and over., the words are like the same words, the story was very spherical, like a sphere, the sphere of the story, was like walking in a sphere, you know how a sphere is very spherical, this story was like a spherical sphere Going around and around, not getting anywhere and saying the same thing that it just said and not even in a different way, it says the same thing, the same way, using the same words, in the same order, like the same, do you know what I mean I am curious to re read Manhattan Transfer now to see if he wrote the same words over and over in that book too As for the story itself, well it s a bit of a slow starter, the idea is there, but it starts off on a hunt for a thief and ends up in a maze, searching for a way out trying to keep that vague in case this review actually makes you want to read the book The problem is that the second half of the book isintriguing than the first half, but he should have picked one half and made the whole story about that, not switch half way through.Read it and you ll see some great ideas, a great imagination and a writer with a true talent for Sci Fi So if you have a boring journey and need a bit of fodder to pass the time Deep Quarry will pass the time and time will pass, time is a journey and the journey through time is just a journey, time will pass and soon the journey will be over, unless the passages of this book that continue to loop around and around This is listed as a Sci Fi book, but it s really a mystery thats set on another planet. This is one of my least favorite Stith books Whatever interest the story might have is drained by the tedium of the writing and plotting. Ben Takent is a private eye on a hot, dusty world at the edge of the civilized galaxy When he s asked to find out who is stealing artifacts from a , year old archaeological dig in the desert, he reluctantly takes the case Then, when it becomes clear that the artifacts are pointing to an ancient alien spacecraft, the stakes in the case go up way up Seemed like a standard sci fi adventure with a touch of mystery But there was nothing about it that really grabbed me.
