it was amazing
Recommended for: Michael Crichton fans, anyone who appreciates smart sci-fi

This is exactly what I was looking for, and if you're a fan of Michael Crichton, you'll love this book, too. It's a well crafted sci-med/techno thriller set in a future so plausible it's downright scary. The consequences of humankind's stupidity are rapidly converging to cause the complete collapse of civilization: the planet's resources can no longer sustain billions of people, and climate change causes famine that will eventually spread to the entire world, just for starters. What to do, what to do? A brilliant character comes up with a secret solution to save the species. He wants his equally brilliant half brother to help him achieve it. The solution is something I've often wondered about and probably many of you have, too. So we get to share in the dilemma: if you were the half brother, what would you do?

The author sets a fast pace while giving us time to relish plenty of smart future-tech and hard science.

I can't wait to read the upcoming sequel!
