Flynn Taggart is a Marine, threatened with court martial until the Gates on Mars suddenly start working. Aliens that resemble our very human ideas of demons, plus a few zombies thrown in for good measure, take over the base, leaving Flynn on his own.
Following marks that he hopes are left by his mate, Arlene, he travels down the levels of the base, the monsters getting worse and harder to kill, the scenery changing at each doorway, and challenges to solve before he can move on.

This was an interesting read in that the author has tried really hard to reproduce the experience of playing the game. However, that means it loses a bit of coherence, as there isn't really much of a story line Because it is written in 1st person narrative, you also know that Flynn is going to survive, which makes the danger seem less urgent.
Not that the other characters are safe! Overall, a good read that doesn't need brain in gear to enjoy or think about Sep 25, Dustin rated it liked it Shelves: Two and a half stars, but I'm feeling generous so I'll round up in this case. I'll admit I'm surprised. Going in I expected this to be absolutely terrible. It's a novel based on an early 90's first person shooter that I found in the dollar bin of a local book store. Turns out it wasn't bad. Now, it's exactly what you'd expect in terms of story.
It's all first person a nice meta-joke by the author and the author did a decent job with the material, though it's a bit obvious that he was required to keep the book PG instead of R. At around page or so I was starting to get action fatigue, but by that point I pushed on to the cliffhanger ending. If you liked the games or books light on plot and heavy on action then pick this up.
View 1 comment. Well, this was certainly a fun and easy read. If you love the game Doom you will probably like to read this one, as the whole book is basically about the main character making his way through Phobos and Deimos killing every demonic creature he finds. You get to encounter various monsters and, at times, it does feel like a Doom game with the hidden levers, secret areas, mazes and surprise attacks. It was especially fun to see how the characters started to name all the creatures.
Feb 21, Dave P rated it it was ok. As a massive fan of Doom in my childhood, I spotted this in the library and had to give it a go! I highly recommend this to fans of the game- its hilarious faithfulness to the subject matter makes for very perhaps unintentionally amusing reading. It's all in here; finding the weapons and monsters in the correct order, explosive barrels, glowing radioactive goo, primary coloured key cards, discovering the dangers of rocket launcher splash damage I particularly enjoyed the conversation where t As a massive fan of Doom in my childhood, I spotted this in the library and had to give it a go!
I particularly enjoyed the conversation where the heroes name all of the monsters, logically deciding on the ones from the Doom manual. It's pretty terrible as an actual novel, of course! Aug 25, Ian rated it did not like it. So, you got a game about demons invading a Mars outpost, and a lone marine fighting back the hellish tides. Not much to work with, but it can be done, right? Well, the authors decide that the best way to adapt the game is to make it as literal as possible.
At one point, the hero touches a glowing blue orb and then feels better afterwards. Yup, it even keeps the power-ups! It wouldn't be so bad if the action was written well, but as it, it's pretty much "I turned the corner, shot a demon, turned So, you got a game about demons invading a Mars outpost, and a lone marine fighting back the hellish tides. It wouldn't be so bad if the action was written well, but as it, it's pretty much "I turned the corner, shot a demon, turned a corner, shot another" on and on.
The atmosphere reminded me of blocky corridors with little definition, just like the game. Fan fic at its worst. Feb 21, Summer rated it did not like it Shelves: I got to the mention of the 'blue orb' and I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Why the fuck would you mention the power-up?
Couldn't take the book seriously anymore. The book is poorly written, littered with pop culture references, and the only real 'substance' of the book is the protagonist fawning over the female Marine he's trying to save. This may be fun for teens who grew up playing the game or fanatics of the game, but for those of us who played Doom, found it I got to the mention of the 'blue orb' and I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. This may be fun for teens who grew up playing the game or fanatics of the game, but for those of us who played Doom, found it mildly entertaining, and then moved on, there's nothing to see.
Jun 20, Jeffery rated it did not like it. Trudging through this book was like trying to jump rope through quicksand. The descriptions were sorely lacking, and the characters were one-dimensional cardboard cut outs. The story in general couldn't seem to find out if it was a story about fighting or a story about some guy who was having reservations about going out with his female marine companion.
It was so hard to picture anything that was going on because the details were so scanty that we're only given the very bare minimum of what we' Trudging through this book was like trying to jump rope through quicksand.

May 18, Charles rated it it was ok. Starts off strong, but after a while reading this book becomes like watching someone else over their shoulder play Doom with god mode and no sound.
E Flynn li uccide tutti. Davvero, ci ho messo anche troppo. John Carmack - il creatore di Doom. Molto interessante, e decisamente IL punto a favore dell'opera, il modo in cui sono riusciti a rendere vario, molteplice, multiforme, interessante e contorto l'incedere di un'azione che si potrebbe sintetizzare in un ciclo infinito di "entra nella stanza, uccidi tutti i mostri, avanza nel corridoio fino alla prossima stanza, trova la chiave, apri la porta".

I'm conflicted on this one. On the one hand, being such a huge DOOM fan, I did like how they tried to adapt the games' satanic imagery, fast-paced action and tongue in cheek humour, especially from the first two games. On the other hand, with it being and us already having DOOM with its way of having a simple yet in-depth story with fast paced action and horror, it's difficult not to feel a little disappointed. Mind you, it is a product of its time and I can't fault it for trying to I'm conflicted on this one.
Mind you, it is a product of its time and I can't fault it for trying to emulate what the DOOM franchise was at the time. Putting aside the awkward prose at times, cheesy dialogue and being overly long at times, there are moments where the attempts at horror are creepy and imaginative, the humour hits sometimes and the focus on the protagonist solely in the first half is intriguing.
If it had more of these elements, this would have been fantastic. Overall, it has its flaws and it definitely is inferior compared to the games, but it's a decent read for horror and action fans. Dec 26, Christopher Dodds rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed reading this book, it was full of action and character development as well as moments of gore and humour. I'm not really a fan of the game series having only played the original Doom game a couple of times and didn't know much about the lore of the game.
So it was great that it expanded on more of the universe while keeping some of the popular aspects of the game like the demon types and the multi coloured keys.
Feb 25, Wayne rated it it was ok. Back then, I would of gave it 4, maybe 5 stars on a good day. Now though it just eeks out 2 stars. Pick up gun, shoot demons and repeat till our hero finds a friend, then both find guns and shoot demons till the end. From what I remember of book two, it was more of the same.
I do have 2 and 3, but I don't think I will revisit them anytime soon. Read Sebastian Sajda review of this book on this site. Quick and to the point. Now that gets 5 stars. Where to start with this one?
It was much better than I was expecting it to be and, perhaps, much better than it has a right to be. Capable Military Sci-Fi with a touch of horror and a bunch of fun callbacks to locations and set pieces from all three episodes of the original DOOM. It loses momentum in the last few dozen pages and doesn't quite stick the landing, but I definitely enjoyed myself with it. Aug 05, Danillo rated it it was amazing.
The best way to summarize this book is: Relentless, non-stop action from the first page to the last, just as the game. I hope the other three books are the same, for this one is hellishly good!
It's okay The repetition of details, fight sequences and the actions the characters partake in made this book almost a chore to read past the first few chapters. Otherwise the story does have some very incredible moments but wouldn't recommend unless you are a fan of doom already.
Spoiler Alert ; Spiderhead is a mouse;the mouse dies.. I really wished fly kissed the lady PFC though.. Wonderful sci-fi.. Fun read If you are a fan of Doom, this is a fun read. Otherwise, you won't find much here. It's slightly above fan fiction. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers Also Enjoyed.
