Resurrect is an action, thriller with a bit of science fiction. I did enjoy this book and would highly recommend it, I would say though, I think this book is geared more to a male reader, and an adult at that. I was sad to say there was a bit adult content that precluded my oldest from reading it, nothing inappropriate for an adult, just not for an eleven year old.
I loved the military aspect of this story, as the main character was a former Navy fighter pilot and one who is involved in many Black Ops.
This story is about Josh, former Navy pilot who is in a “fatal” accident, but somehow is rebuilt into a new body, but same mind. He then is tasked to save the world from a comet set to hit the Earth in 2 years. While this is a fiction story, there is a tremendous amount of information about comets and meteors, and black operations – not all related. I learned tons of information about these topics and was thoroughly fascinated.
I really enjoyed the characters in this story, except for Josh’s temporary roommate (the reason my son cannot read the book, he is a player) and really was not sure why this very brief story line was included. Oh well, it did not stop me from enjoying the book at all, just kept me from passing it down. I really enjoyed the development of Elizabeth, Josh’s friend and love interest.
There were many things about the book I enjoyed, but honestly you will just have to take my word for it and read it, if you like action, thriller stories with a touch of science fiction. I do recommend this book, and if you are not a reader of such stories it would be a great book to pass along to the man in your life who may like it!
