Matthew Reilly

 

Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves

 

A Bruce Willis/Vin Diesel/Swartzenneggar/etc. war/action movie as text.

 

Thatís it.

 

Done competently Ė and, hey, the guy has sold a gazillion books. Those characters. Those lines. Those scenes. Those guns. Those explosions. That villain (no, not any villain in particular, that composite villain). That countdown for your mandatory suspense. That stuff.

 

Painless, but I donít think Iím ever likely to read another Reilly.

 

Iíll still watch the odd movie thoughÖ
