Leap (Breakthrough #2) Reviews
Popcorn-Unterhaltung & ein wenig Science to go!
Der Science Thriller In der Tiefe ist der zweite Band der Breakthrough-Trilogie von Michael Grumley. Im ersten Band gelang es einer Forschergruppe mit Hilfe des Interspecies-Kommunikationssystems „ISIS“ erstmals mit Delfinen zu kommunizieren, was die Aufmerksamkeit des Militär auf sich zog. Band 1: Breakthrough war ein hollywoodreifes Action-Spektakel mit wissenschaftlicher Note, das ihr vor dem Beginn von Band 2 lesen solltet.
"Beware Of The Leap"
In this book, something very strange is happening off the coast of South America. There is a Russian submarine of a class which had long been dismantled, and has risen with a live crew. The U.S. Navy is sending officers John Clay and Steve Caesare to investigate. Author Grumley has a unique way of presenting more than one adventure in each of his books. And they all come together in the end which leaves you gasping! His stories are eye-openers, amazing, and keep you intrigued ...more
I have to tell you - read this book. But read the first one in the series first - "Breakthrough." Now I've read some comments about "move over Michael Crichton and Dean Koontz," but that's not fair. This author, one Michael C. Grumley is SO much better it isn't even funny. I don't normally care for books in this "genre." (I don't like the word genre as it creates so many misunderstandings, but call it action/adventure/scifi/suspense... whatever... that has never been my thing. In fact I had to f ...more
Michael C Grumley does it again.
This is the sequel to Breakthrough. To that end I don't want to give too much away in case you haven't read Breakthrough. All I can say is you seriously need to! These are thrillers at their very best.
In "Leap" we once again meet naval investigators John and Steve. This time they are investigating the sighting of a strange submarine off the coast of Brazil. And why is there a Chinese war ship in Guyana with the crew making strange visits to a remote mountain durin ...more
Leider weit schwächer als der erste Band. War mir viel zu langatmig und konnte mich nur stellenweise wirklich überzeugen. Das letzte Viertel macht aber dennoch neugierig auf den finalen Teil.
This is turning into a really fun series. You can't help liking the cast of characters and their animal companions. Its all a bit 'boys own adventure' but its hugely entertaining and a lot of fun. Despite there being nothing terribly dark in these stories, the characters must face many dangerous challenges and solve numerous puzzles. Their values are also frequently tested.
I like a serial killer thriller as much as the next person but, for a break from all that, this breakthrough series is just ...more
One word comes to mind: "Wow!"
My only regret in reading this book, is that I didn't re-read "Breakthrough" prior to reading this book. The author has shown, once again, that he has mastered his genre. The character development was very well done and the story was full of page-turning suspense. I did find a few typos, but they took nothing from the story. If you enjoy a combination of suspense, science, philosophy and science fiction, this is your book!
Clay, John Clay
Move over, James Bond, there's a new hero in town! I have just finished reading Breakthrough and Leap by Michael C. Grumble. These books are fascinating. The characters are real, emotional, caring, truly bringing life to the pages. Once I started reading book one, I could not stop. The energy just flowed from the pages, the action was very fast paced. I would enjoy reading more books about these same characters.
