Book Description HTML

A glorious summer day turns into a nightmare for 27 office employees in downtown Toronto, Canada. Mushroom-like creatures descend into their office building through a wormhole in space, capture and transport them to a life of slavery on a faraway planet. Living conditions are spartan, their captors oppressive, their future bleak. Led by Monty Dore, senior manager of the kidnapped employees, they learn to cope with their new lives, and, despite setbacks, continually plot to escape either back to earth or within the planet. The odds against them are great but can a rift between the two species that make up their oppressors be used to their advantage? That is Monty’s challenge.

Great book. At first it went a little strangely, but then I got caught up in the story. I really enjoyed it, and hope for a sequel. I've been reading sci-fi for 45 years.

This is a eminently well-written bad book. The plot is unbelievable, the characters two-dimensional, nobody explains why a culture with technology up to creating worm-holes between galaxies has to mine for gold the same way that Chaplin did in Gold Rush. A solution that invoves a conflict between two competing races is standard and boring. On the other hand, the dialogs flow, the action moves and the suspense is reasonably good. Would be very happy if this author used his considerable literary skills to try his hand at something more worthy and challenging.

i don't like stories that don't have happy endings. i found the aliens to be unbelievable (you have to be able to believe the image and i did not) and the story sad and depressing. and no happy ending. i had to force myself to keep reading (i was hoping for something worthwhile to happen, i was disappointed).

Planet Dawn caught my attention right from the beginning of the story..What l loved the most about this book was l could not guess what was going to happen next..A very good read..


Tina Yzelle

The story is to long, it gets bored after a wile

Boringly written, I gave up after about one third of the book when I realised it was becoming a chore to read it.


Vicki Miller

Great book, very mind catching from the first to the last page . I felt like i was there thru the whole story!! Loved it.


Peter

Good read, full of excitement. Started out a little rough, but got better as I read.


Luka Miokovi?

The plot seems very interesting and yet so simple. Just putting everyday people in bizzare environment and striping them down. Very enjoyable.


Steve Clawson

This was a fun easy read enjoy it yourself.

Mark

I found this book very interesting. I do not read too many sci-fi books but this one was worth the read. A cast of interesting characters, a good plot, and some things that make you think a little about why life is worth living even in tough times.

Very enjoyable read. The sci-fi aspect is kept believable, which I appreciate! And it's simply a darn good story.Recommend it to all.
