While doomsday and missile attacks aren’t a new plot, the genetically changed humans to shifters is. The way it was written was well done. I could see were it could happen. The book is really well written, with the pace being steady. We learn the back story of a lot of characters because there are scientist and students. There were just too many. It took away from the depth put into each character. I never truly felt that I got to know anyone other than Daniel, the scientific genius and compassionate leader. While I’m not a big fan of one person point of view, the characters would have had more success if the author had stuck to one or two main characters rather than the many we saw. I also found that the time-line didn’t always jive with the future.

Example: Randy has Chronic Dyslexia and it was never discovered by pediatricians and because of this he grew up not knowing how to read. As of the 90’s chronic dyslexia was diagnosed through tests at school. Teachers actually had to have special training to look for signs. By 1995 only ten percent slipped through the system. There were other mismatches such as this that I found in the book.

Despite this though, it’s a good story with a lot of interesting aspects.
