Same Story told, startin' to get old...
am 2. Februar 2005
Matt Reilly comes at us again with another book featuring Über-Super-Hero Shane Schofield a.k.a. as The Scarecrow.
As with his other books, the pace is breathtaking and the Action spectacular.
If you've read Reillys other books (as I did), you know prior to the first page that you might as well switch your brain to cruise control and enjoy the ride. You don't expect great Character building or well researched scenarios, or realism (at all).
The problem is that Mr. Reilly is seriously starting to repeat himself. Of course the setting is different and the villain is a different one and Schofield hasen't run out of tricks.
But Reilly has. At some point, seeing the Scarecrow escape even the most impossible of situations against ridiculous odds again and again and again, becomes routine. And when the routine begins, the thrill stops. The Brain slips out of Cruise Control and starts to demand just a little logic, a tiny, little speck of realism,or something remotly resembling a Story.
And, as you knew prior to page one, this demand will not be satisfied.
If this is your first Reilly Book and you're into pure Action: Go for it. If you've read the others: There are worse ways of spending ones time, but this book is definitly not a must-have.
