#Review - Zero G Green Space by William Shatner

Title: Zero G Green Space
By: William Shatner
Genre: Scifi
Release Date: September 19th, 2017
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Summary from Goodreads: In the second installment of William Shatner s Zero-G series, Director Samuel Lord must identify a mole sabotaging the top-secret NASA project aboard the US space station Empyrean, while also fighting a fast-replicating virus that threatens humanity. 
In the year 2050, the United States sends the FBI to govern its space station, The Empyrean. Under the command of suave, eighty-year-old director Samuel Lord, the Zero-G men are in charge of investigating terrorism, crime, corruption, and espionage, keeping an eye on the rival Chinese and Russian stations as well. 
Lord and his team are assisting NASA in conducting a top-secret project in the agricultural center of the Empyrean. Using microscopic robots called nanites, they plan to construct a vine that can survive in space. The vine will grow structural material for an elevator that will reach from the Empyrean to Earth. Unfortunately, a Russian spy inadvertently causes the growth to rage out of control, not only threatening the Empyrean, but the Russian space station Red Giant. 
Under the guidance of Director Samuel Lord, Zero-G must not only identify the spy, but help find a way to stop the fast-replicating vine and a form of space zombie birthed by the nanites. The surprising solution takes Lord and a Russian pilot on a dangerous mission to Venus where a shocking discovery awaits."



Review: Wow! This book is jam packed full of science jargon and situations. I was a little lost in the beginning and I think that had something to do with my lack of world knowledge. I should have probably read the first book. With that being said, the story was interesting and unique. The story line moved along at a quick pace and the characters were well written and had depth. This was a good scifi read and I think I'll go back and read the first book.

Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
