Mehr über den Autor

Der Australier Matthew Reilly war gerade 19 Jahre alt, als er 1996 die ersten 1000 Exemplare seines Debütromans "Contest" - auf Deutsch "Showdown" - selbst verlegte. Zuvor war das Manuskript von allen wichtigen Verlagen in Sydney zurückgewiesen worden, für den Druck musste der junge Mann sich Geld von seiner Familie leihen. Heute ist diese allererste Auflage eine Rarität, die hoch gehandelt wird. Außerdem gelangte damals eines der Exemplare in die Hände von Cate Paterson, einer Lektorin bei Pan Macmillan, die den jungen Autor sofort unter Vertrag nahm. Inzwischen hat sich Matthew Reilly zu einem Bestsellerautor entwickelt. Dank Bänden wie "Der fünfte Krieger" hat er vor allem unter jüngeren Lesern eine riesige Fangemeinde.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Grenzwissenschaft, Verschwörung, Ballerspiele 1. Februar 2010
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Wer anspruchsvolle Thriller mit einer gehörigen Dosis Action lesen will, sollte bei James Rollins zugreifen. Oder bei Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child. Oder meinetwegen bei Dan Brown.
Wer hingegen beim Lesen den Adrenalinpegel einer Achterbahnfahrt erleben will, für den ist Matthew Reillys Roman genau das richtige! Selten hat mich ein Buch so gefesselt und gleichzeitig durch seine Absurditäten derart amüsiert. Jack West jr. ist ja auch der reinste Cartoon-Held, eine Mischung aus James Bond, Indiana Jones und John Rambo, den nichts, aber auch gar nichts umhauen kann. Wie Tarantinos Superheldin Kiddo aus Kill Bill Collection - Volume 1 & 2 boxt, bzw. sprengt er sich er sich aus einem Grab ins Leben hinaus, er schafft es, sogar an einem in den Abgrund stürzenden Zug hochzuklettern (man erinnere sich an eine ähnliche Szene aus Vergessene Welt: Jurassic Park) und wollführt mit seinem privaten (!) Stealth-Bomber ähnliche Kapriolen in der Luft wie Han Solo in "Star Wars". Und ähnlich wie John Rambo hat er selbst dann noch einen Trick auf Lager, wenn nichts mehr zu gehen scheint.
Die Hauptthematik des Buches scheint aus Luc Bessons Das fünfte Element - Remastered Deluxe Edition zu stammen: alle paar Millionen Jahre erscheint am Rande des Sonnensystems der "finstere Zwilling" der Sonne , ein Klumpen negativer Materie, der alles Leben auf der Erde bedroht.

4.0 von 5 Sternen STOP THE PRESSES! Armageddon is near! 5. Januar 2008
Von Greg
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was my first Matt Reilly book and I must say it is the most absurd, silly book I have ever read. He makes up ancient history as he goes along, forming it to whatever will fit his plot line (which is pretty thin!). All that being said, I could not put the dang thing down once I started. The Six Sacred Stones is a high octane thrill ride that never lets up. The key to enjoying this book is think comic book, if you are expecting a thriller based on the possible, and having some shred of actual fact behind it, do not look here. But if you like non-stop action and adventure with thrilling cliff hanging suspense you can't miss here! I now have to go back and try Reilly's other books: Temple, Ice Station, andScarecrow

If you enjoy archeological based thriller/mysteries I highly recommend the cult classic "A Tourist In The Yucatan."

I just HAD to give my comment on this book! I loved it! It was my first try with reilly and it was just that - a try. I read the book description in a newspaper advertising the book and thought: I always liked riddles and ancient mythology, so may it is fun reading. Was I surprised! I always thought action has to be watched to be real fun, but it turned out within the very first pages that that it is not so. Reilly does (for me) the unthinkable: action after action is happening, the hero and his team are getting away from one danger and find themselves in the next dilemma, it hardly give the reader some time to get back the breath one is holding. I have NEVER read action written so well and was reading almost no-stop, since I wanted so much to know what is happening next. Very, very entertaining and real fun to read. Perfect for hollidays. And - attention all fast reading book adicts like me - it has 570 pages of story! You have to love a writer who keeps you entertained like this. Refering to "the end in the middle of the story": that is, naturally, kind of disruptive, but 1) if you are still in the middle of the story and see the end pages approaching you already get a strong hint that the story simply cannot be finished in this book, 2) after witnessing 500 plus pages where Jack West is surviving the most impossible situations in the most impossible ways the "cliffhanger" does not give you worrying sleepless nights and 3)the interview at the end of the book gives the necessary answers that the next book will indeed answer all the remaining questions. However, it annoys a little that that book is still not finished and available to read. Patience rarely is a virtue of the action fan.
(The previous book -Seven deadly wonders- is also good entertainment, is adding some details, but to my surprise, the "6 Stones" are kind of faster and such top the "wonders". So I recommend to read it but not to expect as much as with the 6 stones.)

2.0 von 5 Sternen Part one of ??? 9. Dezember 2008
Von Gerhard
Format:Taschenbuch
A fast paced thriller, typical Reilly.

But : In the middle of the action : The End.

Absolutely no finish, the book just stops abruptly at the second stone.

I dont like waiting a year for a follow up, and I think Reilly should tell
the reader beforehand its just one part one of a not known number of books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another winner from the KING of ALL Action novelists 21. Januar 2008
Von Jeff Edwards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a little puzzled at why some people who have read Reilly's previous novels are having a problem with this one (and 7 Deadly Wonders for that matter). What were they expecting? I don't want this to sound the wrong way, but if you've read one Matthew Reilly novel, you've read them all. Certainly they are ALL different, but the action is on a scale that is head and shoulders above ALL authors I am currently familiar with. The storylines are all different, too--but the action sequences on one book are no more outlandish and unbelievable than they are in ANY other book by him.

I LOVED 7 Deadly Wonders. Think of it as the DaVinci Code on a MOUNTAIN of steroids going Warp 9.9. Great story and most importantly: FUN. One thing I really love about Reilly's novels is that he doesn't take himself, or his stories too serious that he sacrifices in order to make everything 100% believable. If you want that, go read a non-fiction book or something by Clancy. If you want absolute thrills that takes action/adventure storytelling to a whole new level? Read Reilly.

The 6 Sacred Stones is a direct sequel to 7 Deadly Wonders. At the end of that book, through the tireless efforts of Jack West and his rag-tag group of heroes, they did something extraordinary that secured Austrailia as the dominant country on the planet for the next 1,000 years. But what Jack and all the others did not know, is that there was a counter to the Tartarus Rotation which eliminates that herculean effort and in effect helps to usher in the end of the world. It's quite a complicated storyline, much more so than anything else Reilly has produced before, and while it's pure fantasy, who cares as long as we have a great time along the way?

6 Sacred Stones takes us literally all over the globe, from China to South America to Dubai and Africa and many points in between including Stonehenge. Creative is one word I could use to describe this book, but I'll use Exhausting instead because that's how it leaves you once you finish. Oh--and talk about a cliff-hanger...! It seems many people are more than a little upset that as the story ends we leave Jack West--who escapes death more than once in this one--literally falling into what could very well be a bottomless pitt without any possible means of survival or rescue. What I personally believe and through experience with previous Reilly novels has taught me is that NOTHING is set in stone necessarily. As I read Ice Station I cannot recall how many times a character was painted seemingly into a corner that was impossible to get out of--and yet that is exactly what happened. Just reading about the prisoner train rescue scene in 6 Sacred Stones ought to give most an idea of just how Reilly manages to snatch characters quite literally right out of the jaws of death...so, do we write off Jack West Jr? Absolutely NOT. He'll pull through...I don't know HOW he'll do it, but mark my words, in the 3rd and final volume of this trilogy, he'll do it.

In short, if you are a fan of Reilly's novels, I honestly cannot see why you wouldn't like this one as well. Be forewarned: the ending is amazingly abrupt and finding out what happens will test our patience in a BIG way...but if you liked 7 Deadly Wonders, you really ought to get a major kick out of additional exploits with Jack West and Co.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unbelievable but in a good way 24. Januar 2008
Von Lost In Kansas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is for those who have not read Matthew Reilly. This is your typical sifi-occult-dungeon and dragons-ancient history-techno-thriller. And I am not joking about that. Remember the old movie SPEED? It had three action scenes in it, enough for three movies. Well this is like that but more and bigger. Your jaw drops with each action scene. You wonder how he can top that one and quess what? He does. Reilly is Australian and that plays an important part in his writings. For you see, he has found the new enemy, the new bad guy, the new villian-us the US. As a matter of fact the Arabs are one of the good guys. YOu need to read 7 Deadly Wonders before you read this one because Reilly refers back to it often. I have read all of his books and they are all except for one deal with old world lengends. It is like sitting through a lecture by Indiana Jones. Clive Clusser use to be the leader in this type of lituratue, but he has grown old and soft. Reilly is the new leader is non stop action. I know it is over the top but boy is it fun to read. I don't think we will see a Reilly novel made into a movie anytime soon. The cost of the action scenes would be extremely high and to costly for studios. Give this a try, you won't be sorry.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great adventure 17. Januar 2008
Von Scotty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I just finished reading this book not ten minutes ago, and wanted to give my opinion of it. I enjoyed it immensely. I know there are a lot of critics of Matthew Reilly's writing style, and I've rendered my opinion on that matter in another review for his book The Seven Deadly Wonders, so I won't repeat myself here. I will say that this book was so much fun and very exciting from start to finish, and I did enjoy the cliffhanger ending, which makes me all the more excited to see how it turns out. I love a good adventure story, and as I tell everyone who inquires, Matthew Reilly is the best pure action writer out there. I have all of his books at home and have thoroughly enjoyed reading his style of escapist storytelling. I enjoy Mr. Reilly's books for what they are: pure adrenaline. And please keep it coming.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Reilley Back on Track 13. August 2008
Von Kara J. Jorges - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The commando team and very special little girl from The Seven Deadly Wonders are back to save the world from certain destruction yet again, and their enemies are just as bad as ever. Australian superman Jack West, Jr. leads the pack, this time to recover six sacred stones that need to be found in exotic locales around the world, cleansed by the Philosopher's Stone they also must find, and then put in their special places inside a tight timeframe to prevent the utter destruction of the world. Of course, not only are these six sacred stones hidden in booby-trapped, dangerous places, the other men who want them and the power they will gain by them are hot on the heels of Jack's team, and they aren't afraid to kill whoever gets in their way. Plus, they are led by Jack's arch enemy, his father.

As usual, Jack's team zips around the world in their 747, the Halicarnassus, getting shot at, captured, escaping, and committing dozens of other feats of derring-do while trying to save the world from certain destruction in the nick of time. His writing tends to be a bit juvenile and he scribbles outside the lines of realism quite a bit, but that's Reilly's way. Think of an excitable guy with an Australian accent who enacts embellished stories with lots of expansive arm gestures and a continually rising voice. It's not for everyone, but I must say that Reilly's books are a whole lot more entertaining than a great number of adventure thrillers on the shelves these days, and this book was an improvement over his last two. The action is still coming hot and fast, but this time out, Reilly chose to develop his characters a little bit, and the book really benefited from this effort.

Matt Reilly is not the author for anyone looking for a "realistic" historical thriller, but if you like lots of action coupled with impossible stunts, you like your characters slightly overblown and obsessed with nicknames, and you're a fan of last-minute rescues when everything seems lost, this book delivers. My biggest complaint is that I felt cheated at its abrupt ending, which was really no ending at all. I had a feeling that there would be a sequel when I was about 7/8 through the book and they hadn't even recovered the second stone yet, but I felt that readers should have been warned about this ahead of time. I was a bit disgusted when the book quite literally left us hanging, but not so much that I won't go out and buy the next one, even though I already know how it will end.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good entertainment. 3. März 2008
Von Rajesh Ramdhan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Certainly no literary masterpiece, however it is very entertaining and introduces the reader to alternate theories about past Civilizations, which I find very thought provoking (A la Graham Hancock). It's a good read if you like this stuff. It can be a little far fetched at times but you just have to enjoy the ride. This is a continuation of Seven Deadly Wonders, so be sure to read that book first. You also have to wait for the author to release the conclusion to this story, so if you don't like 'to be concluded' titles this is not for you.
