To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read this as someone who had never read any of the other Halo Books, although I have played the first Halo game. Whilst it may be a bit slow and technical at the start, this is a good scene setting book, and once the technical stuff is out of the way, turns into a really good story that I found difficult to put down. I am now looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
Provides good background to the story, spearheaded by the awesomeness that is Sergeant Avery Johnson Junior, but essentially tells you nothing knew - the war began on Harvest and Johnson was there. Seems fairly redundent to have a book on that particular encounter - nonetheless, the book is an enjoyable read.
from start to finish, this book delivers a consistently impactful and sincere tone, doing each canon character from the games justice in their presentation and interactions with one another. well recommended.
This is an interesting novel from the point of view of explaining why the Covenant actually attack humanity. It isn't the most challenging of reads, but will be enjoyed by Halo fans looking for more depth into the expanded universe outside the games.
I love the Halo books and this is the 5th so far. I enjoyed the first four books because they had more to do with the games and they had spartans in, but this book is set when the spartans are still very young so they arent in it. I am half way through and the story still hasnt gripped me yet. :(
