    One thought on “Fragment

    1. Thomas Gaffney on said:

      Where to begin First of all, I m so glad I got this for free Second, I m now wondering if the publisher waited for Michael Crichton to die before calling this Jurassic Park like because that is just flat out blasphemy JP was a lightning in a bottle masterpiece you can tell because Crichton s attempt at recapturing that magic The Lost World failed miserably This is anything butOnto Fragment Warren Fahy, you did research for this book Good for you Most authors do There s no need to beat me over th [...]

      noah found a small isle in the vast sea, he thought that it might ve been soil which was the gift sent from god by his grace, so yon releaseth thine animals maybe just may it bethe creatures on this island were just freed from then on, the offspings of those animals released by noah, which were forgotten by anyone who shalt remember or witnessnow someones has found the isle again after noah all those years later

      This one requires a bit of explaining on my part Initially, I wanted to rate this as a 4 5 based on the human element the characters seem somewhat flat, based on overused archetypes, BUT that being said, they are the ONLY downside to this book Otherwise it depicts the most imaginative and innovative tale of man bucking against the unrelenting tide of nature since Jurassic Park I m currently reading Pandemonium, Fragment s sequel, and the characters seem better this time roughly halfway through t [...]

      DNF around 60% The characters were cardboard and the story seemed like a bad imitation of Michael Crichton 60% is pretty good considering how much I hated it.

    5. Stephen on said:

      4.5 stars I thought this book was a blast The descriptions of the various species were very interesting and the action was non stop from the moment they hit the island A highly entertaining read.

    6. Michael Fierce on said:

      Now, THIS was a great book Basically, a Reality TV series crew embarks on a voyage for their Scientific TV show, only to get a distress call coming from the direction of an unexplored island, falling right in line with the hopes of one of its scientist crew members who s been wanting to explore the island her whole life Then all hell breaks loose Very Jurassic Park influenced minus actual dinosaurs It starts out in an older time period like many modern cryptozoological tech thriller adventures, [...]

    7. Michael on said:

      A popcorn, thriller of a book in the vein of the work of Michael Crichton.The crew of a reality show discovers a long lost island that harbors a unique secret there are strains of life here that have followed a different path of development The initial landing party is killed by the various new creatures, but what we see early on is only a hint of what s lurking on the island Fragment is a hybrid story of Jurassic Park and The Ruins The story does well enough when talking about the new creatures [...]

    8. Ben Babcock on said:

      Often I go into novels with expectations If they re by an author I know and like, or if they came highly recommended from a trusted source, then I might have very high expectations If they re something I plucked from the library s New Books shelf, then I ll be less hesitant Sometimes, however, I go into a book with few or no expectations This is not because I am being open minded I am a huge literary snob and have the Umberto Eco reviews to prove it No, when I go into a book without expectations [...]

    9. Sandi on said:

      I glanced through a few reviews of Fragment and had to laugh at all the comparisons to Michael Crichton Honestly, I was thinking the same thing throughout the book To me, it was a cross between Michael Crichton and the original Star Trek series A ship carrying scientists participating in a reality show discovers an island that is so isolated that it s developed it s own ecosystem unlike anything else anywhere on Earth Naturally, the US military steps in quickly and takes over the whole research [...]

    10. Becca on said:

      The only reason I finished this book at all was because I am a cheap person and, as such, I felt that not finishing it would be like throwing 8 one dollar bills in an ash tray and setting them ablaze.Do you remember or maybe you were that kid in high school who felt like science papers were too dull and wanted to throw in random monsters dinosaurs zombies, etc to spice things up or to annoy the teacher Yeah, that is what this book felt like to me A science paper, well researched but forced and v [...]

    11. Tarl on said:

      Thankfully I DIDN T buy the hardcoverUnimaginable and cookie cutter antagonists, enough science to choke the reader to death under pages of description, and an unimaginative ending couple to make this book the worst book I read in the last year The premise is interesting, hell, it s unique, but half the book itself is scientific descriptions of the creatures on Hender s Island, and even at points where there is tense situations, the author spends a large amount of time explaining how the creatur [...]

    12. Susan Gallagher on said:

      So much wrong with this book, I don t even know where to begin But let s start with zero ZERO character development No, I take that back There s just enough to make these people annoying All we learn of the protagonist is that she has a baseball cap and a dead mother there is no conflict for her and no character arc.The suspension of disbelief was stretched far beyond what anyone with even the most basic understanding of ecology could handle One scene near the end between the protagonist and her [...]

    13. Pam ☼Because Someone Must Be a Thorn☼ Tee on said:

      This is a fun romp of a book if you are looking for an effortless beach read It s Crichton esque although the descriptive tech parts aren t quite as well done and reminiscent of Jurassic Park cum Mysterious Island, in that there s an isolated island where vicious critters have taken a different evolutionary path.Overall, the concept is clever and the critters, for which there are even drawings at the back of the book, are fascinating and described in a convincing fashion The pacing is exactly ri [...]

    14. Elise on said:

      A group of scientists from a reality TV show discover a remote island in the South Pacific New species have evolved there that may as well be aliens The inhabitants are very powerful and deadly, and the scientists have to decide what to do with their discovery of the island and the creatures This was a blast to read, based on real science not pseudo science, so it makes the plot plausible It s a perfect entertaining summer read.

    15. Jim on said:

      Great creatures I can t wait to see how they look on the big screen You can t read this book without picturing it as a movie in your mind The descriptions are awesome and they don t go on forever and ever like some authors , the characters are great, the story is immersiveJust go read this book.

    16. Twobusy on said:

      Remember back when Michael Crichton was cranking out blockbuster movie plots disguised as novels and every review was pretty much the same The details varied from plot to plot, but almost without exception you d read a review and learn that he d put together a book with a propulsive plot, a bunch of surprises and thrills, lots of technical and or scientific detail to show off all the research he did, and little doubt that the characters and dialogue were anything than paper thin Well, Crichton [...]

    17. Lori on said:

      Won this book in the Giveaway I was pleasantly surprised by this book The premise is what orignally caught my attention A reality show plans to shoot a scientific exploration of an unexplored island Unbeknownst to them, it contains an entire exosystem that is alien to ours Numerous scientists, camera production crew, and military characters with names like Zero, Ham Pound, Thatcher, Gyn, and Nell Check Dry, straightfoward scientific explanations dumbed down for the not so scientific reader Check [...]

    18. Terry on said:

      With sagging ratings, the ocean exploration reality show SeaLife desperately needs a boost before the network cuts their one year voyage short What could be better than answering a distress call on a mysterious island Surrounded by a 700 ft cliff wall, Henders Island is largely inaccessible and its distance from the shipping lanes means very few seafarers have even seen it But when a live broadcast of the landing shows the cast of the SeaLife eaten alive by the island s flora and fauna, the show [...]

    19. Wayne on said:

      I liked this book quite a bit Fahy has created a dangerous world every bit as dense and full as Cameron s Pandora, minus any happy tree environmental saving grace This is a world of creatures that would likely devour any other world, imaginary or real, were it to escape that small rock called Henders Island The creatures were surprisingly well conceived and illustrated, and the ecology was finely tuned and enthralling There were a few sections later in the novel that stretched even a forgiving s [...]

      NO SPOLIERS I liked it a really good story The island was a real treat the bad guys were really, really badwhich was goodjust when you thought they couldn t be nastierey got nastier The characters were fun and well developed especially the good guys boywere they fun The science behind the whole story seemed believable to me and Mr Fahy did a nice job of connecting all the dots I also liked his weaving of geo politics into the story and the military government component was well done BOTTOM LINE [...]

      Great storyline Full of scientific details vivid characters Loved the lectures by Geoffrey especially the one on lifespans of animals.

      Warren Fahy s Fragment follows a group of scientists filming a reality show aboard a boat in the Pacific Ocean A distress call leads the crew to unexplored Henders Island, where they encounter a host of terrifying new organisms.As a biologist well, biology grad student , I was intrigued by the description of this book, and requested a review copy through LibraryThing I was curious as to the advertised scientific aspects of the story many books and movies, while entertaining, fail when it comes t [...]

      Fragment is fast paced, full of scientific detail and highly entertaining If you like Michael Crichton books, then you will probably love Fragment.Although plot driven than character driven, there are some fun and interesting characters in this book Nell is the underrated lady botanist she reminded me a little bit of both Ellie from Jurassic Park and Jo from the movie Twister which I just found out was also written in part by Michael Crichton She s the one who first realizes just how dangerous [...]

      A remote, tiny island in the Pacific teems with unique, aggressive species But they aren t dinosaurs from The Land that Time Forgot they are distant relatives of mantis shrimp that evolved on a separate track from the rest of the earth in Fragment, a 2009 eco thriller that is plausible than a living dinosaur book The new species are first discovered by the crew of a reality show called SeaLife The U.S Navy takes over because of the risk that the dangerous species could leave the island and dest [...]

      A reality show is being filmed on a research ship One of the participating scientists applied because the ship was going to sail close to an island that she had been interested in for her entire life, an island that had been cut off from all contact with civilization, or even with any other forms of life, for centuries To her surprise, she was chosen The show s producer, intent on increasing viewers and ratings, is constantly trying to get the scientists to have sex with each other, but most of [...]

    27. Mandy Moody on said:

      When I started Fragment I viewed it as a fairly obvious copy cat of Michael Crichton s masterpiece, Jurassic Park Bk 1 I don t feel that way any.I ve been stuck in a sort of genre vortex for about 2 years 98% of the books I ve read in that time have been Historical Fiction While I love the genre, it was time for me to branch out again.I m doing that by easing into it with some light, fun books Fragment was recommended as a Readers Choice on my local library website, so I decided to check it out.

    28. Meagan on said:

      This book This was a fun book It was chock full of scientific discussion about evolution, environmentalism, biology, and ecosystems, but since I ve always had a hidden core of inept science nerd, that s okay by me What I didn t understand still sounded plausible, and appealed to the part of me that researched DNA sequencing in high school I understood enough to get the point, though, and as a result believed in the characters .Speaking of characters most of them are fodder for violent creature a [...]

      I was lucky enough to get this as and advance reading copy And I enjoyed every minute of it.Fragment is roller coaster ride that delves into the possibility of running across an alien species that is not from outer space but from our own planet Fahy goes beyond Jurassic Park to describe an eco system that has, in its isolation, evolved separately from the rest of the world.How would we react What possible threats might there be to our own environment What moral obligations do we have to a new sp [...]
