Runner and mother of two from Hove, UK. Relies on good audiobooks to stop the kids from fighting in the car. Occasionally buys one for her.
In some series you do not have to read the books in order. That is not the case with HIVE. If you haven't read any of the other books, you need to start in order because there are LOTS of plot points revealed in this book which were brewing in the other two.
Otto's peculiar skills are explained and he continues to work on them. My boys (aged 8 and 10) were jealous of his computer-like talents (very hand for IT lessons at school ...). Romance blossoms (a bit) and there are lots of frantic action sequences.
My favorite characterization has to be Diabalous Darkdoom; famous super villain, highly intelligent, handsome ... but with a really silly voice which sounds rather like poor, timid Nigel. It made me crack up every time he came on.
Brilliant book and a great narrator. Thoroughly recommend this to tweens, teens and adults.
As an adult listening to this I can say I have very much enjoyed the ease of this story. That is not to say that there weren't a few surprises in the book. This series is defiantly worth getting.
Absolutely, this is the best one of the series. The author has really got into his stride.
We have also enjoyed the Artemis Fowl series and although not as witty, this is similarly great action.
Tricky one, Hive Mind is excellent and Jack's 'Wing' is much better than the next reader's.
Great movement all the way to the action climax
Not worth spending much time writing a detailed review or else I lose even more of my life. It was dire and so much so I could not get near the end. Tried hard but the trivial being presented as the spectacular was just to much
I would not listen to rest even if I was in solitary confinement for the rest of my life
