I really expected more of this book. I almost stopped reading it on a few occasions. I felt like it just dragged on. The main plot of them wanting her baby was very catchy, problem was it never really came to head till the very end. So many different sub-plots also became somewhat annoying but it wasn't to the point of hard to follow. I also had a problem with everyone randomly figuring out what was going on at the end with no other new information or incident. That was the worst part to me. I d ...more
This book started out slow but, all in all, I liked the book. My reading of it was very spordic because I was only able to read at lunchtime, and that constant disconnect from the story may have been part of the problem throughout the first half of the book, but there was an awful lot of background information and not knowing where the story was going throughout a large part of the this book. However, when it FINALLY started coming together, I was at the "I can't put it down" stage.

This was a book I picked up from the sale cart at Half Price Books several years ago for fifty cents. Just got around to reading it. Nothing great. Fairly predictable, but a good fluff book.
I have begun picking up books specifically to read at the gym- mostly with the excuse that I can read anything, since I'm being good! But mostly because it's one convenient way to place the large hardcover on the machine.

The premise of the book was interesting: the discovery of a gene whose protein could be used to help extend life into the hundreds. The story began with some interesting momentum, but eventually fell short to the very end.
A medical thriller set in a small town in New England. A research company is trying to find a way to prolong life with a miracle drug. A reporter trying to have a child finds herself investigating grave robbings. This book was suspenseful and well-written. I gave it a 4/5 rating.

It was wonderfully written. Maybe someone who doesnt do or get the Sciences (such as Biology for example) might get confused (Even I was confused at times!). Kinda twisted.. Very interesting. To me they got a bit lazy in the end but overall it was a great book.
Great concept- but not as thrilling or captivating as it could have been. This book could have been a 2-part episode of Kolchak: The Night Stalker!?! (...maybe it was??)
