When the ships started to blast each other in space. The way I see the MAC guns salvos destroying the Covenant ships are epic.
And when Chief and the other spartans was inside the Covenant ship trying to plant bombs to explode it, that was a great vision.
Then there is the part where they were on Onyx and the battles there with Spartan IIIs along with the remaining Spartan IIs against the Covenant in the jungle of Onyx. Then got stucked in the dyson sphere. Man, a cliffhanger of a book....I want more

Don't listen to that child. Reading is engrossing all on it's own. If you can read and comprehend what's going on in text competently then you don't need pictures.

I think that guy needs a new version of Hooked On Phonics.

You need to read more.


I think that both the books and games are great but what really help makes the novels great are the games. By playing all Halo games, it helps me visualize while reading the books, which makes it so much better.
