I liked it. Look, I have this problem when writing book reviews. I tend to see only the parts of the book I don’t like, I want to be better, etc etc yada yada and write my reviews on that. And I loved this book (as did my daughter). So if you’re reading this review to see whether this random person on the Internet, whom you don’t know from Adam, liked the book and recommends it, the answer is *Yes* and *Definitely* and you can stop reading now. Thanks.
For those of you who are still reading, and

What a fantastic book! It is kind of like the Duggars meet the Spy Kids, except that the dad is the spy and only the older kids really get involved in the spy stuff although the younger ones have their own little adventure too. Jon Gunderson is a doctor, a father of nine children who his wife homeschools, and a spy. His masters degree in microbiology makes him a good candidate to fight biological warfare and, with his unsuspecting large family in tow, he fights crime surreptuously on their ...more

“The Prodigy Project” by Doug Flanders, MD is a wonderful science fiction read! Lt. Col Gunderson has a secret that he keeps from his family - he is an American spy!

I can't say The Prodigy Project is another Clive Cussler, but it was an overall good read.
A spy novel for the family, written by a family, should be classified in a category with Spy Kids. This book was mediocre suspenseful and contained some good action. It does have some humorous parts to break up some of the suspense. Imagine taking a family of 9 children on a spy mission without them knowing. I am not sure if this is the author's debut novel, but if it is, I think he will be able to turn ou

I found the first couple of chapters of this book hard to read as it was to a slow a pace for me however I am glad I stuck with it as this turned out to be a great read.

The characters are brilliantly thought out and all of them have a purpose within the book. The plot is well thought out and is consistent throughout the novel.

This book has a unique plot which won't be found in any other books at the moment. I recommened this book to everyone it is a great read that I think everyone will enjoy.

I received an Advance Reader's Copy (ARC) from LibraryThing members and I will post a review after reading it.
I really liked this book because it grabbed me by the throat at the Prologue, and didn't release its grip until the Epilogue; it's THAT kind of a book.
The author uses the KISS method (it means Keep It Simple, Stupid) in his writing: the story is told simply and to the point.
I highly recommend this book to whomever loves a well written story.

As many others have mentioned, this book was very slow to start out. While I enjoyed the plot of this book, I found the execution of the story suffered a bit from too much "telling" and not enough "showing" of key plot points. I liked it enough to give a second try to this author when he writes his next book.

The book started out slowly but once you get a few chapter into the book the story picks up . I'd recommend this book .

Unfortunately this book moved to slowly for my liking although that may be due to the amount of scientific detail that was given throughout. Perhaps a bit too much info dumping.
