BUCK ROGERS #2

Review by: Animalvader1


Size: pages
Price: 3.50

Every good science fiction book needs to have solid science to help back it up, and Buck Rodgers delivers! I’ve been reading up on physics since I got the History channel’s “The Universe” box set, and the basic laws of Gravity outlined by writer Scott Beatty are spot on. He vaguely explains the situation to the reader in an obvious attempt to sew the seeds for a more detailed explanation later while still keeping the reader guessing how Buck wound up in the future, but those seeds are firmly rooted in modern science and Beatty has clearly done his homework here.

If that’s not enough to wet your whistle, you must also consider that it’s got a health dose of unpredictability about it, some fun and witty dialogue, and genetically altered animals! Giant, laser toting, talking bears who hunt humans for sport/bounties anyone? No? Then how about alien slave traders who really think soylent green is good?!?!

It’s good, buy it!

Story: 5 - Excellent
