  1. Overstressed Overworked In need of a change in scenery Looking for relaxation and a well deserved rest Why not visit Antarctica, the last unconquered continent Its virgin, untouched landscapes and friendly, innocent wildlife make it the perfect holiday spot for those wanting to escape modern life and human drama Make one with beautiful nature, bask in the sunshine, and experience inner peace while exploring gloriously preserved, snow covered sceneries Encounter fascinating, affectionate fauna Me [...]

  2. Why read a book called Ice Station, are you having flashbacks to the days of Alistair MacLean and those commando ops that thrilled with the killing of lousy Krauts, except this one is by Matthew Reilly some wanking Aussie young un with Coke bottle specs, an older and reedy version of Mr Peabody s Sherman with a shoeblack pomade, it s a nice sleek white and promises cheap merc entertainment so why not, it s not like you have thousands of award winning, globally lauded, literature defining author [...]

  3. WOW WOW WOW THE PACE WAS FRANTIC EDGE OF THE SEAT STUFF A TOTALLY GRIPPING, ACTION PACKED THRILLER What the hell just happened I m a member of the GR groupA Good Thrillerand in October this year they started a concept called Book Pal The key purpose of Book Pal is to help members attack that overwhelming To Be Read TBR shelf by assigning a random partner each month to choose a book for you to read from that shelf This month I was teamed withJulianafrom the UK who had just started to read Ice Sta [...]

  4. Killer Whales Seriously Even in a society desensitized by the escapades of James Bond, this kind of thing seems rather excessive in an action thriller, although I must say the scenes in question were pretty scary in a Jaws kind of way Oh, and of course, giant seals Par for the course in this kind of fiction, eh The book s pacing is frenetic, which helps, since all the not so good bits flash by so fast that you almost don t realise they re even present Just how over the top is this book Ha Read i [...]

  5. The environment in Antarctica kicks the danger into overdrive This is one of those action packed books that barely gives the reader time to catch their breath between thrilling scenes.If the idea of a ufo hidden beneath the ice isn t enough, add to that secret government bad guys determined to lay claim to it A few different secret governments Lots of deaths in lots of creative ways.

  6. I started reading this book And thenI put it down And then I Picked It Back Up.Again.Just to see how it ended I couldn t actually finish the book Gave up on page 500 The beginning was great, but things rapidly dissolved into stupidity This calls for than suspension of disbelief Maybe a pre frontal lobotomy Or maybe a time machine I could travel back in time and give this book to my 14 year old self, who would probably enjoy it Though a pre frontal lobotomy might still be necessary.Give credit w [...]

  7. This is perhaps the single most ridiculously over the top book I ve ever read This is a story in which the author has modern special forces armed with magneto grappling hooks and crossbows Crossbows Seriously The cool thing about early Tom Clancy was that it was so plausible The earnest, macho tone of Clancy s stories fit the grim Cold War setting really well Now you have a generation of writers writing in that same earnest, macho tone about people having high speed hovercraft battles, shooting [...]

  8. Trigger warnings a metric shit ton of graphic violence Like, so much violence People get shot, stabbed, blown up, eaten by killer whales, and a bunch of other gory things There s also a graphic description of eyeball trauma, which FUCK NOOOO Miscarriage is also mentioned 22 7 2017This book is hella ridiculous Like, the most ridiculous of all the ridiculous And I kind of love it Everything I said last time stands 28 2 2014This book is approximately 75% contrivance Solutions to major problems appe [...]

  10. I couldn t believe the pace of this book it seemed like there was hardly a moment to breathe for the first 200 pages 1 3 of the book And how Matthew Reilly thinks of all these different sub plots and can weave them all together is beyond me And all I can say is, I know this scenario probably isn t typical US Marine Corp work based on something that was said at the end , but I guess their work is generally kind of similar situations, so I m glad I m a dietitian I know this sort of book shouldn t [...]

  11. This book was incredible It was literally like watching the most awesome action movie you ve ever seen Each chapter ends with a crazy cliffhanger But the glue that held this book together was its hero, Shane Schofield This guy is awesome He is so endearing to me, he could be a romance novel hero If you want a book with a thrill a minute, a great hero, and lots of blood and guts, read this book.

  12. This was without a doubt a crazy, insane, action packed, shout out loud, blood curdling, bullet ridden thrill ride Blood and guts galore and definitely not for someone unable or unwilling to suspend disbelief It really did feel like I was watching a summer action flick I knew this going in and I got everything I expected and The hero was awesome and indestructible and just when you think he s not going to make it besides the fact that there s a Shane Schofield 2 he comes up with something wild [...]

  13. Okay, where do I start There be Whales in there sir Actually, there are whales, but that s not important right now Shane Schofeild has worse luck than that guy who played James Bond in between Sean Conery and Roger More Her Majesty s Secret Service His best line of the movie was How come this doesn t happen to those other guys Shane Schofield, alias Scarecrow, has a tough job Go rescue some hot babe scientists in one of the remotest parts of the world He and his team of Marine special warfare fi [...]

  14. If you re going to read this, be prepared for a testosterone fuelled ride that won t let you take a breath until you read the very last line You d better be in the mood for guns and bullets and other techno military paraphernalia not to mention killer beasts lurking below the surface of the ice cold water Oh, and bring some imagination along for the trip some of what you re about to read will stretch believability to the limit and beyond But do this, with a six pack of your favourite beer and a [...]

  15. 4.5 StarsWow Matthew Reilly knows how to write a thriller that kept my heart pounding to the very end Yes, there are a couple improbable plot twists, but Reilly makes you believe all of them His characters are wonderful Scarecrow, Gant, Mother, Book, et al are remarkable and memorable Wendy was simply adorable An adorable character in a military thriller Yup, you just love this little fur ball She s as brave as the leathernecks who respond to an SOS call to the American Wilkes Ice Station in Ant [...]

  16. I think to enjoy this I would have needed to unhook my higher brain functions first Of course, that might have made reading impossible If you look at the reviews for the book, the word used the most, even in the positive reviews, is over the top It s as if Reilly took every single cliche to ever grace a Steven Segal film then shook it up and poured.This is primarily set in and around an American Ice Station in Antarctica One of the harshest, most fascinating settings on earth, and Reilly, except [...]

  17. Reread this last week and I upgraded my rating to a five star rating I kind of don t know why it was a four in the first place Maybe it was one of those GR querks that nobody can explain I know this review isn t very helpful, but I m too lazy to write a proper one Suffice it to say that when I die and I get cremated,I ll ask for this book to get cremated with me My family will then go to Antarctica to scatter my and the book s ashes My and the book s ashes isn t even grammatically correct.I shal [...]

  18. I would lyk to write a detailed review But u knw pFrankly, if u r a ura dhura action adventure fan then there is no reason u will not like it The main charecter is a likable one From beginning to ending there is a spring like tension working on the plot and boom boom action which follows it is kind of Super Humanly, but hey its Reily He is famous for this kind of things, right Gonna read the next books Wish i could find this kind of books in Bangladesh.

  19. One of my favourite books and heroes of all time.I picked this up at the airport when I was about 17, flying from Australia to New Mexico to see my godmother She had cancer and it was really progressing and my mum and I knew we were going over to say goodbye so it was a really sad time Sort of happy as well because we were getting the chance to say goodbye to someone, which most people don t get but, of course, sad too Sometimes in these moments, the right book can be the perfect medicine and Ic [...]

  20. WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN I ll start with what I said on my journal a couple days ago This is so ridiculous and balls to the walls insane, like a dumb Hollywood action movie but in book form The reviews panning it for being cheesy and over the top are totally missing the point it knows exactly what it is, and it s dumb and it s fun If you come into freaking ICE STATION expecting a literary tour de force then you have gone gravely wrong, my friend There are explosions and motherfucking homicidal kill [...]

  21. Okay, first things first SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS Not that there s much plot to give away.Well, I saw this book on the library shelf the other day and picked it up I d been feeling like some brainless action for a few days, and this seemed to fit the bill, so I happily sat down and started reading And, at first, it was great stuff Not in any cerebral sense, of course, but entertaining enough I mean, come on Antarctic research stations, mysterious metal things buried in 400 million year old ice [...]

  22. Lieutenant Shane Scarecrow Schofield, leading a crack team of U.S Marines is rushed to an ice station in Antartica to secure the station s discovery of what may be an extraterrestrial spaceship However, French special forces and then British SAS troops attack to secure this prize Meanwhile, there are traitors everywhere, also working against Schofield and his team s efforts This is truly pulp fiction, where belief has to be suspended Schofield and a small pup seal named Wendy are the highlights [...]

  23. Part 2 in a four book review of Matthew Reilly s novelsContest Ice Station Temple Seven Ancient Wonders Contest found an engaging read again I liked the story a simple mystery about an alien artefact found lodged thousands of feet underneath the Antarctic ice shelf There is an excellent turn half way through which I will not reveal that keeps the plot believable, and the novel tight as a thriller It is for a lesser part well written and Matthew keeps it fast paced and maintains suspense through [...]

  24. This book was the type where you can honest not put it down, i found my self on numerous occasions racing this book for hours on end Written by a former student of St Aloysius, this book was very exciting and always a had a sudden twist around the corner For the first 100 pages there was action, but as i continued into the later stages of the book it was non stop action, which for many people might be a bit overwhelming but personally i loved it The characters such as Scofield was excellent he w [...]

  25. Atenci n James Bonds, Ethan Hunts, Chuck Norrises, Rambos y MacGyvers ha llegado el nuevo h roe Shane Scarecrow Schofield sois todos unas abuelitas a su lado, ja Qu bien lo he pasado leyendo este libro, adrenalina a tope, acci n en cada p rrafo, apenas he tenido tiempo para respirar Que la acci n es rocambolesca, descabellada, incre ble, imposible y poco realista pues tal vez s , pero est tan bien contado y explicado que yo no he parado un segundo en pensar si los hechos se sosten an o no Por su [...]

  26. James Bond on speed If you want to travel to Antarctica, to be shot at with pistols, rocket launchers and crossbows and wrestle with killer whales and navy seals, this is the book Hilariously over the top A total page turner Action, action, action from the very first page and it never stops until the end I kept thinking, this can not be topped and then something else crazy happened I kept giving sound bites to my fellow travellers in the minibus in the morning and they just thought I was bonkers [...]

  27. Six stars out of five I think My favourite Matthew Reilly novel and my first I highly recommend it The pace just never stops People die in the sentence they re introduced There s killer whales, mutant radioactive seals and Reilly disses Australians Bloody good.

  28. People talking fondly about the writers of the golden era Science Fiction 1940 s 1950 s often state that their single biggest skill was to make people willfully suspend disbelief If you are looking for something in the similar vein, this is THE book for you It has everything alien artifact being discovered buried under the ice in Antarctica, mysterious shockingly violent death of the discoverers with very little to know about what is are killing them, an overt mission to retrieve the artifact an [...]

  29. Man, talk about junk Not only does it use ignorance to pretend to be Sci fi, it s HORRIBLY written In one memorable chapter beginning, he starts three of four consecutive paragraphs with the name Holmes , and the only reason it s not all four is because the second par of the four starts George Holmes.Garbage.
