Gravity, by Tess Gerritsen

Gravity by Tess Gerritsen

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I must have read a different book from most others… I’ve read an extraordinarily cheap science fiction thriller that feels very dated, e. g. when NASA officials threaten to fax a secret to the newspapers, when they present evidence on a cassette tape and that caters to admirers of body horror at best.

Yes, it’s a thrilling page turner but of the 90s variety; think of the old b-movies with body snatchers and smart scientists, a cowboy-infested US government and many more stereotypical characters and story elements. It’s mostly disgusting with cheap thrills and the intellectual depth of a puddle.

I finished it less than a day ago and, thankfully, the “story” is already fading into oblivion. I’ll stick to more modern works of Gerritsen.

One out of five stars.
