Perhaps it could have been better if the author had had a readily available thesaurus, as the same adjectives seem to be used relentlessly in succession.
Nonetheless, I can't bring myself to I love the Resident Evil video game series with a passion I've shown for little else, and when I learned there were books of the franchise, I sought them out immediately. Nonetheless, I can't bring myself to dislike the series, as they've given me a chance to delve into games I may never get the chance to play. Despite the minor annoyances that may accompany the reading of these books, I without a doubt would refer them to any Resident Evil fan.

Coming into this as a fan of the video games, I was not surprised to find it thoroughly interesting. The characters were spot-on, and the little added details to the story kept things enjoyable without feeling like gaming deja vu. However, if you haven't touched a Resident Evil game before, I wouldn't suggest reading this as a standalone.
The antogonists may come off as clunky, and the memories of their past will leave you scratching your head.

Give the games, or previous books, a once-over before you pick up Code: Veronica. On a last note, kudos to the portrayal of the light romance. It made the male protagonist quite likable in the novel, which the game failed to do. Aug 15, Angelica Paulino rated it really liked it. This book is a bit of a horrific novel, but keeps you interested.
This book is part of a series that features seven books. The plot in this book is so wonderful because it really keeps you interested. For example, on page one hundred forty-two on the last paragraph, Steve a young adult who plays an important role in the book killed his father because he was infected with the virus that turned him into a mindless zombie. Once the deed was done, Steve became pretty scarred for life. This is only This book is a bit of a horrific novel, but keeps you interested. This is only one thing that will keep you wanting to keep reading this great book.
Jan 04, AndrewP rated it it was ok Shelves: horror. Final book of the original 6. After that it's a final showdown with the resurrected Albert Wesker from the first book. As this is the final book I was expecting some kind of conclusion, even though there are additional games after this point. Kind of disappointing that there wasn't and I suspect that the original intent was to write further novels based on the games.
As these were published Final book of the original 6. As these were published several years ago I guess that never happened. Oh well, I still have the prequel to read. Out of all of the novels based on the video game series not including the two original stories , this is my favorite. In my opinion it was one of the darkest games of the series and that holds true in the novelization.
The suspense is beautiful and the plot is thick with curious intrigue. The panic and disbelief that the characters exhibit in the game come to life as you can read about each and every single thought that crosses their minds. I read this novel quicker then the others because I wa Out of all of the novels based on the video game series not including the two original stories , this is my favorite.
I read this novel quicker then the others because I was so glued to it. Quite a wonderful little treat. I liked the novelization of Code Veronica All in all it was a great read and it was nice to see what Wesker was up to again. I'm sad that there are no more books in the series, having read Zero Hour first. I wish S. Well at least I can play the games. Dec 04, A. I really loved this book. I guess it was because I'm a huge Resident Evil fan and Claire Redfield is one of my favorite characters from the franchise. It's tough to make readers scared from written words, when they are coming from the video game experience, but SD Perry did an amazing job with setting the tone.
It was fun to read the inner monologues experienced by Claire rather than transferring my own emotions to her when playing the video game.

I have never been more unsure of how to feel about a book before; part of me wants to snuggle it and part of me wants to burn it.

I think I'm going to have to come back to this review after some more thought, because at the moment my feelings for this book can only be properly expressed through noises. Jul 11, LaDonna Richerson rated it liked it Shelves: horror. Overall It was good, I would like to read it again. The only problem that I have with it is that the ending felt a little rushed and if the author was trying to get the book over with.
Also, it makes me sad that this is the last novel and no new ones are being made currently. I really enjoy the novels and love the author's style. So I hope more novels are over the horizon. Sep 01, Chris Lemmerman rated it liked it Shelves: books-read.
A bit of an odd one. Alexia and Wesker were barely in it, and I think that made the book suffer as a result. Mesmerizing Code Veronica is a faithful adaptation of the game, capturing the disturbing madness of the antagonists from its game counterpart and instilling terror and dread in its reader.
A worthy buy. Feb 05, Kati rated it liked it Shelves: in-english , ebooks , work-translations , , sci-fi , straight. Not bad. I liked Claire and Steve's friendship and Claire and Chris' sibling bond, those were great. But the villains got defeated way too easily, in my opinion. Apr 16, Sarah rated it it was ok. Well, this has definitely been the weakest of the books by far. Pacing is a bit of a problem as the island section far outweighs the events taking place in Antarctica. So much so that both Chris and Wesker are kind of shoehorned in last minute almost as if in afterthought. Also was Wesker always uncomfortably aggressively rapey?
I don't recall that at all in the games. To me he always came across as detached-almost asexual in that he only seemed interested in someone for their use in furthering Well, this has definitely been the weakest of the books by far. To me he always came across as detached-almost asexual in that he only seemed interested in someone for their use in furthering his own agenda. I don't know if that is just my personal headcannon getting in the way, but this wasn't the only time he's portayed as such in S.
Perry's books- but I have to say that this is the most The kinda sorta budding romance between Steve Burnside and Claire was also a bit awful as Steve feels woefully underaged here despite being only slightly younger in addition to the pretty consistent reminders of how close Claire and Leon were getting prior to the story- just made it feel as if we were edging into cheating territory. On the flipside, I do have to applaud the authors ability to make Steve marginally less annoying than he was in the games. Claire is awesome and i really enjoy how the twins were written, even if Alfred's dual personality got kind of confusing in parts.
Was it multiple personalities, his delusional imagination, or Alexia using her telepathic abilities?

It's a bit unclear and by that I mean not really addressed at all. Something else that amused me was S. Perry's continual shade throwing at the games many puzzles. Oh there is a case able to move metal undetected? That's cool, too bad I already shot the metal detectors with my gun- Which you know, also works.
For the final book in the series this is a bit of a disappointment and the non-ending in particular feels more like a set up to a final battle, one we will never get to see. The author could do and has done better-this is one book I probably won't be re-reading anytime soon. Aug 17, Jeremy Blum rated it it was ok. Code Veronica probably has the nuttiest story of the classic Resident Evil games, complete with a cross-dressing bad guy, Wesker gaining Matrix powers, a Frankenstein-esque tortured father figure imprisoned beneath a base in Antarctica and weird themes of sibling incest scattered all over the place.
All of this stuff might make for an entertaining read, but it seems by this point that S. Perry has kinda run outta steam, since this book is just as flat as her novelization of Resident Evil 3 was Code Veronica probably has the nuttiest story of the classic Resident Evil games, complete with a cross-dressing bad guy, Wesker gaining Matrix powers, a Frankenstein-esque tortured father figure imprisoned beneath a base in Antarctica and weird themes of sibling incest scattered all over the place.
Perry has kinda run outta steam, since this book is just as flat as her novelization of Resident Evil 3 was. In fact it seems like she rushed this one - certain scenes are told with little or no description at all, and Wesker literally returns for like ten pages only to disappear into nothingness, never to be seen from in this series again. It's too bad that timeline-wise, this is also the final novel in Perry's series.
The one after this was a novelization of Resident Evil Zero, which means that all of the seeds that Perry has been planting in her little take on Resident Evil lore, like White Umbrella and mysterious benefactor Trent, were never fully realized. Kind of a shame, especially for anyone reading this series who hasn't played the games. Then again, if you're not a fan of the RE games, I doubt you've made it this far.
Ah well. These books started off with a nice spark that kinda died the longer things went on. A shame. Mar 30, Freezard rated it really liked it. The beginning, where Claire is imprisoned on Rockfort Island and Steve Burnside is introduced, immediately got me hooked.
The story kept me excited as the Ashford family is explored further, with some mind twisting events that are a little confusing but also adds to the mystery. More background about Umbrella and how they operate is also great. As always, Perry does an excellent job of coloring Claire's personality and making her feel much more alive than in the games, so much that I wish she wa The beginning, where Claire is imprisoned on Rockfort Island and Steve Burnside is introduced, immediately got me hooked.
As always, Perry does an excellent job of coloring Claire's personality and making her feel much more alive than in the games, so much that I wish she was working on the games as well. To make it worse, the plot was told in a muddled way in the game. Cue this book. For one, she streamlined the puzzle areas from the game and cut out or modified anything that would make the story loop and backtrack too much. Like that crap with the metal detector and brief case. She also weaved nice supporting back story in. She writes in Chris talking to Leon and Barry and preparing before he goes to Rockfort so it's not just a drop in out of nowhere.
She makes Alfred Ashford not just an annoying villain but writes about his messed up thought process so you can hate him even more, but for the right reasons! The part about the doctor's diary in the dungeon is a perfect example.
That's probably the single most important thing she did was add depth to the characters so you could understand them better. She sets a mini story for Rodrigo so you care about what happens to him. I actually like Steve better thanks to this book; that is a Herculean feat! You get to see what all the characters are thinking and how they are feeling and what motivates them; it just adds so much to the story that the game was missing.
Bottom line: if you played Code Veronica and hated it; delete your memories of that game by over-writing them with this book. If you are catching up on your retro-gaming; skip playing Code Veronica and read this book instead. April 11, - Published on Amazon. Ths is sadly the last book S. Perry has written on the series, and it is as good as its counterparts. With only one ally and a psychotic millionaire trying to kill her, Clair has lots to do before this story ends. The best part about this book is that it offers a lot of back story in doses.
Read at own risk, the ends could be a little loose. August 9, - Published on Amazon. September 3, - Published on Amazon.
