    1. This book was OK. It had a lot of scientific info in it for a fiction piece. A lot of technical terms, which were explained, but still quite a bit to take in. And then the ending was TERRIBLE. My Kindle tells me how far I am percentage-wise through the book. When the plot did not seem anywhere near and ending and the Kindle said 96% I got concerned. I thought, 'is this going to be one of those books that the author did not know how to end it so just boom, it ends?' The plot line itself I found b [...]


    2. Review: ICE AGE by Brian FreemantleThe author specifically advises that this novel is not intended as a polemic against global warming; yet the story speaks for itself, and the situation is too near-future to qualify as science fiction. Rather, the premise is unfortunately a very possible "could happen." The protagonist, climatologist Jack Stoddart, is a long-time environmentalist who has for years cautioned about destruction of the planet. Seems he's now being proved accurate, as conditions of [...]


    3. I've just read an article on the upcoming breaching of Lake Vostok in the Antarctic. This freshwater lake, below 2.5 miles of ice, has been sealed from the rest of the world for 14 million years. Other, similar, lakes are facing core drilling. The relevance to Freemantle's Ice Age is the possibility that one or more of these lakes contains some bacteria, virus, or other life form (term used loosely, obviously) to which the rest of the world has not been exposed. The deeper importance, though not [...]


    4. Wow, I'm glad that I'm finally finished with this book! I can usually read a book in 2 or 3 days but this book was so horrible that it took me almost 3 weeks to finish. Where do I start? First, the plot was not what I thought it was going to be. I like science fiction and this book had very little in it. I am a scientist, myself, and I found that many science principles were completely wrong or fallible. Second, I do not like political books and this one was full of politics. The actual grammar [...]


    5. This was not worth the dollar I paid for it, nor was it worth the afternoon I wasted trudging through it. The fundamentals of grammar, sentence structure and even spelling were so jumbled and were ultimately the reason I abandoned the effort. On such an uncertain foundation, the plot was precarious, and the characters were mere caricatures.


    6. It's not often I stop reading a book halfway through, but I couldn't keep going on this one. Brian Freemantle's "Ice Age" has a promising idea: An ancient virus trapped in the polar ice is set free by global warming. The virus causes its victims to age rapidly and die within days. Knowing the lethality of the virus, first-world nations rush to get in on the research and, ergo, the potential glory of finding a cure.It's not that far-fetched. Too bad it's not well-written. I kept going past the am [...]


    7. I bought this book before checking out the reviews. I find strange diseases and the ideas of pandemics interesting, so I thought I'd give this book a try. It was a bad decision.This book is, frankly, awful. The writing is sloppy and hard to follow. The sentences are ridiculously long and sometimes fill an entire paragraph. Many characters are hard to believe and the author clearly has a problem with Russians, as the main Russian characters are cartoonish.And, above all, the science is flawed. I [...]


    8. I didn't actually finish this book, so a review almost seems unfair. I just got too bored. It was not very well written to begin with and there was entirely too much politics - but not even interesting politics. And some kind of weird double-speak where the people say things but then we are told in italics what they really mean. I just didn't know where it was all leading.It started out well. I liked first few chapters, but then it bogged down and I just couldn't bother wasting any more time wit [...]


    9. The action parts of this book and the basic plot was great. The whole rambling aspect into the inner political workings were just down right boring. Maybe if you are into that sort of inner workings, you will find it better, but I wish the author had spent more time on the main plot points of the book.


    10. Couldn't finish this one. I liked the idea but the storytelling was just off. Scenes were not well-described so it felt like I was watching everything through a foggy window. I found it hard to distinguish between the characters, to the point where I would get lost within conversations. And the editing was really bad. Typos all over the place.


    11. I did finish it to find out what happened to the characters, however I didn't enjoy the book very much. It was poorly written and I found myself skimming a lot of it, especially when it went on and on about the political scene. The author tried to fit so many stories into this book, it just ended up being confusing.


    12. Two stars is precisely what I feel I should award. The book is mostly clumsily written and split into two POVs, the political and the scientific. Unfortunately, the political is not Jeffrey Archer and the scientific is not Michael Crichton. The characters are mostly flat, and the science trails behind as a prop to the panicky appeals about global warming. So-so.


    13. Much more about the political inter-workings of science and government than the actual pandemic described. Kept my attention but I kept waiting for something to happen other than meetings Bizarre ending.


    14. I never give up reading a book. Well this turd starts a new era for me. The premise had promise, but the delivery is so boring and horribly written the promise is never kept. My lurid teenage fiction reads better than this drivel. Avoid!



    15. This will be short. This book lacks interesting characters, a logical progression of ideas, a proper amount of editing, and a satisfying ending. The only thing I liked somewhat was the premise.


    16. From the beginning this book failed to grab me. Very disappointing especially since the premise is very interesting. It has been done before and better. Not worth it & could use some editing.


    17. This was a cheap kindle book that I had to force myself to finish. I ended up skimming a lot because the politics was so boring. Not my favorite book.


    18. Too much political intrigue for me.A lot of politics, a lot of science, a lot of new age propaganda.There is a little bit of a good story.Way too long.


    19. Ice age is part techno thriller, part political thriller, with medical and environmental themes. After having read the preface, I was very intrigued and interested to see where the author took the basis for his idea. After reading the book it became evident that the basis for the idea was not only the motivating factor for the novel, but the extent of it. If you read the preface, you have basically read the book. I would have liked if the author had built upon this idea within the novel, as oppo [...]


    20. I'm not usually one to write a review, but reading so many bad reviews below, I feel like I have to throw in my "two cents" - I actually liked this book and found it interesting to read. It had me a bit on the edge of my seat to see where it ended (is there a sequel?).Bad writing, poor character development? Not so much. Lots of time spent on the inner political workings on the various national governments - yeah, but that's kind of Freemantle's thing (and I came to this book having read many of [...]


    21. I bought this book quite a while back as an offering on amazon's Daily Deal. Like many others have noted, I found the concept intriguing. But, the multiple negative reviews and the very low average rating made me put it on the back burner. In all honesty I would like to be able to rate this at 3.5 to properly reflect how I feel about the book. I rounded up, rather than down, as a counterbalance to the low rating. Another observation is that this reads more like a political thriller than SciFi.Po [...]


    22. I have started a book and not finished it less than five times in my life but this was one. I am not even sure how I got this book but I was scrolling through my Kindle for something to read and saw this and gave it a shot. The story has kind of two parts, one a sort of medical thriller about a disease that threatens to destroy humanity while the other half is a political novel all about covering your ass, fighting for position and betraying people, with no redeeming characters. I gave up about [...]


    23. Sept.6, 2013 this was interesting though at times, it did drag. It was is not the type of book I prefer to read and finally my husband confessed he had added it to the Kindle quite some time ago. If you like LaCarre books, you will no doubt enjoy this genre.While I am not finished, this book has more meaning since seals, dolphin, and other sea creatures are being washed ashore enmass or have disappeared entirely. The polar ice caps ARE melting and land animals frozen thousands of years ago are a [...]


    24. Very misleading, very disappointing. The way things were written in the what would be the back of the book made it seem like it would consistently be a science/medical related fiction novel However the book was heavily diluted by politics and political antics which made the book practically intolerable. I was impressed in the extensive knowledge and proper use or medial terms etc, that aspect was wonderful. I think if they just cut out all the political roundabouts it wouldve been a much more en [...]


    25. First paragraph, "Patricia said: ‘Oh dear God! What is it?’ No one else spoke: was initially able to speak. They instinctively, protectively, pressed back against the insulating door of the out-station, repelled because they were scientists who worked by and to formulae – so far understood rules and so far unarguable equations – and there was no formula, no rational explanation, for what they were looking at."Freemantle, Brian (2011-09-13). Ice Age (Kindle Locations 50-53). Open Road Med [...]


    26. I thought this was a very poor book. I thought it was going to be great, like a Michael Crichton type of book. Instead of that, it was dragged out, full of long, meandering sentances and a stereotypical baddie. I felt it couldn't decide if it was a thriller or a political book. The language used was anything but plain English and I counted a sentance of 90 words which is just ridiculous. The book started with a lot of detail about one set of characters then promptly moved on to a different set & [...]


    27. The premise behind this book was so good that I really wanted to see things change. The idea that global warming could release a disease that would speed up the aging process and other microbes the the waters of the world is a very real possibility. Character developmentpoor. Writingpoor. Story line.h to follow who was who. It did pick up when they arrived in Russia but still had a tough time keeping my interest. I wanted to see if the book redeemed itself but it didn't.


    28. I am very close to stopping halfway kinda boring. I started because of the science and bored because of the politics. He also tends to transition between story arcs suddenly with no warning, sometimes I have to go back and re-read something since there were absolutely no indication of the switch.


    29. This is a book of fictionr now. But it points out problems that could arise from global warming which made it a bit of a horror/suspense story. Throw in politics, romance, science and it's quite the read. Only reason I didn't give it a 4 star rating was because some parts were confusing.o many characters at times.
