Ice Station Matthew Reilly read online review & book description:

A fast-paced thriller from bestselling author Matthew Reilly, Ice Station.

Antarctica is the last unconquered continent, a murderous expanse of howling winds, blinding whiteouts and deadly crevasses. On one edge of Antarctica is Wilkes Station. Beneath Wilkes Station is the gate to hell itself...

A team of U.S. divers, exploring three thousand feet beneath the ice shelf has vanished. Sending out an SOS, Wilkes draws a rapid deployment team of Marines-and someone else...

First comes a horrific firefight. Then comes a plunge into a drowning pool filled with killer whales. Next comes the hard part, as a handful of survivors begin an electrifying, red-hot, non-stop battle of survival across the continent and against wave after wave of elite military assassins-who've all come for one thing: a secret buried deep beneath the ice...

    I first read this book in 2000 when I stumbled onto it at my local library. After I returned it I would always tell people about this amazing book I had found. 14 years later and the passion to reread the book kept bugging me. I am so glad that the book is available through iBook! It is a must read & a book worth sharing.

    Wow, this was predictable! Just to unrealistic.

    The most implausible, ridiculous action adventure story of all time! I can't believe I choked this down. PLEASE don't make the same mistake that I did. Some think movies such as James Bond and Mission Impossible contain scenes that are so far from realistic the story negatively impacted. This has at least ten times more far fetched, impossible scenes as any book or movie I have ever experienced. Really bad.

    I read Scarecrow Returns and said "this is the best book ever." I read Scarecrow and said this is the best book ever. Now I read this book and I am totally glued to the Scarecrow series. This is the first book and like it just as much as the others! How does he do it? I don't know how anyone could rate this 4 stars.
  • Awesome action packed thriller!

    If this book isn't already a movie, it should be! I read this in just over one day (not non-stop, btw). The intrigue, betrayal, loyalty and perseverance of the characters is riveting. This is better than Jack Ryan.....sorry Harrison Ford. Every scene is written so that you completely visualize what is happening and yet keeps you guessing at the continuous obstacles / twists thrown at Scarecrow and his team. This is the first review I've written. I can't wait to read another Scarecrow book. Maybe Wendy will reprise her role? :-)

    Not sure how "real" all the action was, but you literally could not catch your breath in between all the firefight and combat this book has. One dire strait after another. Normally, I do not enjoy military books, but I found this one very interesting and loved all the action.

    I read this as a paperback on a plane and it was so bad I didn't even leave it in the seatback pocket. You get these tech thrillers for the details and the story. You expect the details to be accurate to sell the expectedly preposterous story. Apparently Reilly is either too lazy to do the research or thinks his readers are too stupid to notice. I also hope the ebook cleared up the astonishing number of typos and spell-check wrong word choices. Finally, even though the 'killer' killer whales are a plot device, anyone who's spent 10 minutes researching them knows that, in the wild, they are not a threat to humans.

    I am not a rabid reader, but I couldn't put this one down. It was awesome. Action every minute and definitely leaves you wondering what's going to happen next. I even felt actual emotion towards some of the characters. Loved it and I just downloaded another of his books.
