it was ok
Recommended for: Those interested in the ethics of gene therapies
Read in April, 2009 , read count: 1

First of all, this is clearly written by Aaron Johnston, based on a short story by Card, so keep that in mind when you get the book. Since my expectations were high, I was disappointed with the writing style. It is stilted, such that it interrupts the flow of the story. You remember you're reading a book, and not living the tale, so to speak.

The story line is interesting, and there are plot twists and turns that make it readable. The ideas brought forward about science and the changes that could be brought about through DNA replacement - that is thought-provoking.

There is a lot of violence, though, and people are dying right and left.

It's an OK read, but there are so many other REALLY good books to read, that if you have a choice, pick another one. If it's the only book on the shelf you haven't read, it's an OK read. :)
