normally I don't write up books because literary tastes are so personal. and one does not expect very much from a mainstream bestseller - a good read on the train, mostly. but this book sucks so seriously that I have to warn you: don't buy it, don't read it - a waste of time and money. why? rampant scientific idiocy for one. time limited gene change - really? in a gell cap - what? then there is the moronic way this is built into the plot - the supposedly super clever female character "changes" herself multiple times (and then stops because she is afraid for her humanity) and does not see the final twist - the male character "changes" just once and sees it all down to the core - and plans ahead accordingly(the science fiction variety of the tired old deus ex machina). what does this mean: females are too sentimental for real intrigue? or men are just that much more wired to real insights? but most probalby it just means that the author has got lost in the thicket of his own silly story and handed himself a machete to cut his way out. and just don't get me started on the cheesy pop philosophy... seriously: hands off!
