Mathew Reilly


I have recently started readind mathew reilly's books. I am a great lover of action packed books and i think this writer is up there with the top, his imagination and detail is fantastic and his latest book contest is no exception. I suggest any one who likes action packed books to read this writer.

I have read the first three books of Mathew Reilly (Tempel, ultimatum and Ice-station translated to dutch) and i loved reading his books, they are very detailed, with a lot of tention(i hope it is the correct word for it) and the story keeps you reading.In our library we only have these three books and i am now looking for newer books he wrote.
The nice thing also is he uses characters from the first book in the next and so on, so you already "know" the chararter however the story is completely different.

I am only 12 but I enjoy his books a lot all of them action packed although it isnt really serious like tom clancys novels I think it is great

I was reading Ice Station on my holiday in Spain, when I walked trough the city with my girlfriend and my parents I was reading, when I was sitting in the car I was reading, reading everywhere I could. My girlfriend thought I was crazy that I couldn't put down the book so se wanted to know what was so interesting about the book. When I finished it she started reading it and could not put it down too. You see, there's allot of shooting and 'man action' but girls will love it too.
I'm going to get the other books too.

Mathew Reilly has been added to my list of must read authors. My first reading of his work was Area Seven, pure escapism and thoroughly enjoyed down to the last word.
Have now started reading Temple and looking forward already to purchasing a copy of Ice Station. Many, many thanks and well done.

I'v just read Tempel (dutch translation) and I think this is the worst book i've ever read. Jumping out a falling tank with a jetpack is so unrealistic as the rest of the book

i have read temple and contest and think they are both fantastic,sure they are o.t.t but they are pure escapism which is what i like.this writer delivers!

I made the mistake of reading Andy mcNab before reading MR's Area 7, and it seemed to show up MR's slight lack of attention to detail, or perhaps lack of experience in the field he writes about, though he didnt miss by much IMHO.

I do think MR's Area 7 was a good ride if reading him first before other more experienced Authors, and as he gets older, Im sure the small issues I found with Area 7 and its "abnormalities" in storyline, and detail will lift that 5-10% and make his books some of the "must read" action books in future.
