Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome and Chilling The book deals with the manipulation of genes, that leads to perfect transplant organ for any person, transplants that the body will not reject. The story is a statement on how far we have come in gene manipulation and just how little is actually applied due to the ethical issues. Makes you wonder if you really know about the all things that are being done in the world.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy book to read I’ve just discovered Robin Cook. The story of the book is good at the beginning but when the plot install itself, I lost interest. He exaggerate too much, it make the story so unbelievable. At first I said yes this thing could happen but it became to big to be plausible, I lost a complete interest in the book. I was lucky it happened only in the last 50 pages so I could still finish the book. It’s an easy to read book and it fit perfectly for the moment you don’t want to think too much while you’re reading, but even for those moments you can fine a much better book.
