As Turturro spoke to different lawyers, he saw that they were dealing with life and death. He has potential, but he has so many problems to deal with. Venice Film Festival audiences consider him a huge star. Turturro is a family man, with two kids. I rocked on it. They saw the original movie, read the script, and understood perfectly. This movie is very irreverent. His movie was more edgy; this is a different time.
Audrey Tautou is more empowered. But it has the same spirit. Sign Up: Stay on top of the latest breaking film and TV news! Sign up for our Email Newsletters here.

The adult relations are kept brief but do contain some graphic material. I loved the flow of this book and how it was fast-paced with some intermissions in the action where the protagonist would take a step back.
The concept of this Fantastic science fiction! The concept of this book is very original and I like the twist that is being hinted at so far.
The dynamic characterization is great and really adds some depth to the book and sets it apart from science-fiction where space ships just explode the whole time. I'm definitely picking up the sequel for this one! Jan 30, Michelle Mellon rated it liked it. I read this as part of the Kindle version of 25 for One, the book bundle benefiting hurricane victims. It was the first book in the bundle and grabbed me from the first page. I was all-in with Adair's bleak view of alien invasion and human subjugation, and cheering for the rebels to prevail.
Unfortunately, the book's ending was too abrupt for me. I was just feeling like I really knew and liked the characters and was waiting for their next challenge when things ended with an "until next time I've read plenty of other series openers that left me feeling more satisfied at the conclusion.
That being said, the book was well written, and I might get over my disappointment enough to continue the series.

May 15, Carol rated it it was amazing. Always loved Booby Adair's zombie books.. The aliens invade earth Grays, LOL - a touch of the zombie there then other aliens attack them and, of course, the earthlings rebel and there the story starts to get interesting.
Love his characters, the good and the not-so-good.. Read a preview Freedom's Seige that is available as a freebie to people on his mailing list and there is a link to it at the end of this book.
Well worth the read! Straight away bought 1 and Book 2 and pre-ordered Book 3. May 17, Todd Gutschow rated it really liked it.
The business end of that panther was getting entirely too close to me for comfort. FX Sat. When the local sheriff refuses to search for her missing ex-husband, a woman hires a private investigator to help find him and solve the murder of two people. And they just do not care.

Well done sci-fi After starting three series and copping out on the first book in each one I was very eager to find something decent. This is right up my alley. Good story, good setting, great action, interesting characters, and the most important "underdog earthlings battle superior aliens" theme. If you like the type of military sci-fi that focuses on "getting back at those damn aliens" then this book will work for you.
Not overly techie or cerebral Can't wait t Well done sci-fi After starting three series and copping out on the first book in each one I was very eager to find something decent. Can't wait to start book number two.
Oct 17, Patrick Barnes rated it it was amazing. Tense action Most realistic near future infantry action that I've ever read. The backstory for this universe is logical, clear, and as dark as real life. I've been disappointed by other series when they start out interesting but I really doubt this series will let you down.
These may not be the heroes that you expected but they seem to be the ones humanity definite! Quoting shamelessly from "Nobility" and apologize I sort of got carried away.
You will like this book. Aug 01, Billy Mullins rated it it was amazing. From when Zed woke up in an Austin I remember well and recognize right through to the shitty ending of book 9 yeah, I know there couldn't have been a "happily ever after" but Zed endured SO much shit I wanted him to find a little bit of happiness it was a good read. Get "Freedom's Fire" and join the fun! Oct 03, Alex rated it it was ok. As a huge fan of Bobby Adair's 'Zombie' fiction I have to say I was disappointed by this generic and bland expansion into the sci-fi military genre.
As a 99p buy it's worth picking up though - and I'll be getting the sequels when they get to be that price, but not before. Hopefully the hackneyed story will have improved by then PS The 'science' is as execrable as t As a huge fan of Bobby Adair's 'Zombie' fiction I have to say I was disappointed by this generic and bland expansion into the sci-fi military genre. PS The 'science' is as execrable as the ludicrous tactics employed by the cannon-fodder marines who have no personality other than two-dimensional cliches that are quite frankly, insulting to the reader IMO.
Apr 06, BJ Cantrell rated it it was amazing. But seriously, I was really at work not the dentist.
Sometimes one is just as frightening as the other! Honestly though, this was a great story! A new spin on how humans and aliens. If you like fast action and page turning suspense then get this book now! Apr 30, Debra rated it it was amazing.
