Greg Bear has spent much of his recent career evoking awe in the deep reaches of space, but he made his name with Blood Music, a novel of nanotechnology that crackled with intelligence. His new book is a workout for the mind and a stunning read; human malignancy has its role in his thriller plot, but its real villain, as well as its last best hope, is the endless ingenious cruelty of the natural world and evolution. --Roz Kaveney, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The book is very easy to get into and I was interested in the story throughout the book.
There's actually a glossary of terms from molecular biology, as if this book was based on science rather than just using the jargon for window dressing.
It's like the story just gets lost and it ends abruptly, then Bear just started typing randomly with no ideas of where the story is going.
The plot concerns strange happenings to human DNA causing strange and frightening changes in human babies. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Albert
