Deathworld

by Harry Harrison

I read this book 30 years ago and still remember the page turning effect it had. It was fun to find it on the net now and it got downloaded and read in a single sitting!

I doubt it would win any litery prizes although the theme it covers is way ahead of it's time. It is however excellent "entertainment" of the written variety!

In some ways it is way ahead of it's time; using iPads! In others it missed the point, still using "computer tapes"

It would make a truly brilliant film, I'm suprised it hasn't already been done... Think along the lines of Jason played by;
Vin Diesel? :-)
Kerk? Stallone!
Meta; Carrie-Anne Moss

CGI could do amazing things with the training and battle sequences.

Another review describes it perfectly, A very good "romp",
well worth reading.
