You wont see the review here. 🙂
But you will see it over at Liz & Mark’s blog, My Favourite Books. 🙂 Liz asked me to do a guest review on her blog -in fact, the review happened as a repayment of many favours Liz has done for me- and then something else happened that made the review even better, but more on that at the end of this post. 🙂
Suffice it to say that Twisted Metal is an excellent SF book, a worthy addition to the already-great lore of Robots, and a surprisingly original take on robots themselves. 🙂 If you’ve been overloaded with robots of all kinds in the past while (what with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen & Terminator Salvation), don’t worry, Twisted Metal doesn’t emulate them in any way. Trust me when I say that you’ve never quite met robots like those that populate the world Tony has created in Twisted Metal.
Do head on over to Liz and Mark’s excellent blog and read my review. 🙂
Next up, I’m also announcing the new giveaway here – it’s already been announced by Liz. 🙂 Here’s the info, and how to enter. 🙂
There are TWO copies of Twisted Metal up for grabs: 1 paperback and 1 hardback.
We are throwing the competition open ONLY to British peeps AND South African peeps. The UK peeps get the chance to win the paperback and the South African peeps get to win the hardback – this is of course due to postage costs.
