Bookworm Sean
This novel tackles the issues of scientific advances and the moralities associated with them. This is done in the form of two characters: Jenny and Max. Max is a pastor’s son. Jenny is the daughter of a genetics lecturer/researcher. This leads to confrontation about the impacts of scientific advancement.


I would only recommend this book is you have a severe interest in scientific ethics.

I won this book, here, on goodreads.

I found Baby, Baby to be a thoroughly enjoyable read.

The reflections on the science and ethical issues are peppered with some very natural, earthy and realistic dialogue which made the topic a surprisingly easy read for me.

The author also shows a very good understanding of the scientific questions and issues, and the fluid style is punchy and entertaining.

A highly original and easy to read novel. I will definitely look out for more of Mari Howard's work.

I read the free taster but abandoned it. Overwritten and unrealistic dialogue mixed with sprinklings of gratuitously earthy prose and unconvincing intellectualism made it inedible. I'm sure there was an idea here trying to find a writer but they failed to connect.
