Singularity by Steven James is an interesting book, but not a favorite of mine. I did enjoy the suspense of Singularity and the story line was O.K. Singularity was a book that just didn’t hold my interest.
I think Steven James has a great mind for action and the torturous parts. That was the part of the book that kept me reading. My favorite chapter and it was very riveting was called Venom.
I guess the things I didn’t like in this book were the very technical descriptions and also the descriptions of Las Vegas. I think Steven James just went on to much with these two things.
Some people will enjoy this book, but it’s not for the faint of heart. Some parts are pretty gruesome. I have read some other books by Steven James and this isn’t one of my favorites.
