Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book I really liked this book. There are many books by this author that go in directions that I expect but still enjoy. This is one of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fascinating but ultimately unsatisfying The subject of the review says it all. It was not until I was completely finished with the book, and had reflected on it, that I reached the conclusion "fascinating but unsatisfying." However, I am forced to give the book a 4/5 simply because it did make me reflect on it, something I rarely do with fiction. The characters were diverse, and I liked the fact they had personal lives outside the lab that were at least approaching realistic, and the science was interesting. Definitely a science fiction as opposed to a science fantasy story.
