Book Review

The War Against the Chtorr 1: A Matter For Men The War Against the Chtorr 1: A Matter For Men by David Gerrold



My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is volume One in a series 20+ years in the making! The future of an Earth recovering from the ravages of war is further imperiled by an alien invasion! Giant worm like creatures named the Ctorr (ktor) have invaded earth. This invasion not only includes attacks on the human population, but also a bizarre form of terrraforming.



Every day Officers in the Special forces fight to protect the human race on a planet that is becoming more alien every day. Biology Student James Edward Mccarthy is commandeered from his classroom to the front lines of the Chtorr invasion.



David Gerrold has created a wonderful SCi-Fi epic in this series. James McCarthy is our eyes in ears in this ever changing world. The Chtorr are monstorous and alien, but there is an element to them that is fascinating. As the humans learn the invasion may not be solved with guns alone they begin to investigate the living patters of the Aliens with shocking results.



The great writing and character devolpement in this book make it a timeless read. Twenty plus years later this book still has the power to move and etertain me.
