Sasha-sin про Vector: Последний бой (Боевая фантастика)

1 страница даёт представление о том, что автор не имеет представление о чем пишет. Просто представьте , у него начальник говорит подчинённым зачем собрал, а не сразу начинает о теме и подчиненные ( военные) начинают спрошивать а почему МЫ должны это выполнять... ? ПИИСЕЦ....

Shcola про Сухинин: Закон долга (Боевая фантастика)

Хорошая серия. Смешная.

Рейтинг: +1 ( 1 за, 0 против).
Sasha-sin про Мухин: Капкан попаданца (Альтернативная история)

Очередной герой как и автор с IQ побольше чем мало и как следствие постный слог и т.д и т.п.
Отмечу хороший баланс между диалогами и описанием, а так же наличии своего сюжета

Рейтинг: 0 ( 0 за, 0 против).
Александерр про Nooby: Чемпион. Часть вторая. (Альтернативная история)

В принципе не плохо, но вовторой половине книги второй части как-то много не нужного описания.

Рейтинг: 0 ( 0 за, 0 против).

Prologue

Colorblind

Close your eyes and you can imagine what it was like. Hot, sticky, crowded. Smoke, flashing screens, and lighters flickering. Fans screaming, laughing, clapping, and crying. Bodies pushing, shoving, trying to catch a glimpse. Everyone wanting to see the stage—the lights, the equipment, the musician himself.

He was running back and forth singing, headbanging, and playing his guitar. The lyrics were jumbled. His movements out of sync. The sound of the bass thumped through the crowd so loud my body vibrated with every wrong note played. I just wanted it to end.

Nick Wilde had opened for the Counting Crows at the Hollywood Bowl. It was his second chance—and he blew it. The crowd was exhilarated at the start of his first song and he owned the stage but it didn’t last long. By the third song he was improvising, pulling notes, and forgetting words. He was lost in his own trance, soaked in alcohol, and no one could help him . . . not Xander, not my mother, and definitely not me. “Mr. Jones” started playing before he even finished his fourth song . . . and he never played onstage again.

Music was his soul. Music was in all of our souls. When we were younger he taught us everything he could . . . how to play, to sing, the right way to command a stage. We knew every song by every artist. We traveled to concert after concert. Music was his life and it became ours.

But he wasn’t happy just playing. He had a dream—he wanted to be famous. And somewhere along the way his dream became an obsession. I’ll give it to him, he got further than most do. By the age of nineteen he had been signed by a label and cut his first album. But after a disappointing run they released him. He spent the next fifteen years working the circuit—clubs, churches, weddings, birthday parties, as he waited for another big break. And then, just like that, he blew his golden opportunity.

Everything in our life changed after that. The drinking got worse, Grandpa came around more to check on us, and Mom went back to work. Every day left another kink in his chain as he lived in his own world. I was sixteen when his plan A became my plan B and, just like him, at a young age, I cut my first album. But unlike him I had Xander. He wasn’t going to let me fail. The band’s album had a slow start but after a year of touring, it started to gain popularity.

I remember the first time the Wilde Ones graced a real stage. We were restless. We had been sitting around for hours waiting. When we were finally up we strutted confidently across the stage like we had in rehearsal, but, really, we were nervous as hell. The lights were much brighter and the audience so much bigger than we were used to. When the guys started to play, soft, barely audible words flew out of my mouth so fast I forgot to breathe. The band was drowning me out and I knew it. Looking around, I adjusted the microphone height and took in the crowd. They were cheering me on with such enthusiasm that my voice finally soared over them. It was the same voice I’d grown up with, the
