Book Description

A genetic time bomb is ticking inside us. Only one man can disarm it.

A young computer genius, a former Jewish Haredi, is sent by his rabbi to infiltrate the most secret biological laboratory in Israel. When he discovers he is about to develop the same cancer that killed his father, he turns himself into a human lab rat, trying to find a genetic cure. Outwitting his superiors, betraying all he holds sacred, he unravels an even darker secret threatening to destroy all humanity.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Genosimulation is one of the most original books I've read in a long time.  It's fresh and original, with so many styles, cleverly revealing the story and intertwining them with the creation of the book.  You cover science, medical knowledge, philosophy, popular culture, politics, religion, modern terrorism, biological warfare, music, poetry, genocide...the list is endless.  There's real emotion,  revelations of terrible rawness, such interesting descriptions especially of the Enchanted Garden.  So many twists and turns and surprises.  I've been genuinely engrossed and involved.  You have amazing knowledge about all this stuff!  (And I do verify everything I can to ensure it's factually correct...not the Enchanted Garden, obviously. )
Julie Phelps, editor

From the Author

With a book like that, everything I can say might be used against me. Is it real? Is it not? Was there ever a person like that, like Zomy? Was I ever approached like that, during an internet chat? There ARE answers to these questions. Only I can't give them to you. But you can check the web. You can speculate. And even if this is all fiction, you can read Genesis once again, but this time read it from Zomy's point of view. And wake up.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unusual book. October 22, 2013
By gad
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a whole new experience for me. First of all, it's not written in the traditional way. It's actually written in an "internet" mode, combining chat transcripts (serving as dialogs in many cases), e-mails, even pee-mails (a very funny thing - I checked, it's an actual website). There are no text messages yet - although it's definitely sci-fi, it's plot takes place in the 90's.

This unusual structure keeps appearing throughout the book . Chats, e-mails, and then a surprising turn, usually written as a short story. Odd at first, I got used to it very fast and after a while I was very into it. A very immersing experience.

This unique structure keeps the plot going in many ways. It is basically the story of a computer genius (no spoilers here), trying to crack the human genome in an underground military lab.

Although it has a very fast pace, this book is actually very philosophical, and very into religion. It has very tough questions about God, offers an original theory about the story of the Garden of Eden, and raises very good questions about our destiny as a species.

On the other hand, it's a story of a very lonely young man, who lost his father to cancer, and fighting it himself. Among other things. He also falls in love with his college - and if I'll reveal more it WILL be a spoiler.

Overall - this book made a deep impression. It forced me to be on my toes due to the rapidly changing writing styles, as well as the twists and turns in the plot. Unlike most books, this one leaves gaps in the plot - but not in a bad way. It doesn't explain everything. It leaves questions unanswered. As I said - it made me think. Not many boos do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genosimulation November 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I am drawn to "unique" books, and I enjoy reading things that tend to be outside the normal box.......this one even pushed THAT limit.
In a good way!

The writing style I have never seen before. Most of the dialogue was in the form of internet chats, or messages where they write with pee......seriously.

The plot kept you on your toes, wondering what was going to happen next. You follow a young man as he finds out that he is going to develop cancer. Then, even more disturbingly, a plot that could end the human race as we know it.
The ending kept you wondering.....almost like the end of a horror movie.

Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your everyday thriller October 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The characters development is amazing. You can easily find yourself being drawn into their world. It is a unique techno thriller, one that stands out from the usual on the bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very intriguing plot November 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had read another of Liron Fine's books, and I was anxious to see if this one packed the same punch. It certainly delivered! The structure of the book is unusual in that most of the narrative is done through emails and chat messages. The author is approached electronically by Zomy, who wants him to write his story as a novel. Turns out that Zomy is trying to crack the human genome. As you read, you can't help but wonder if the events in the book could ever happen in real life. There are discussions involving politics, religion, and science - the book goes beyond just story-telling. The plot is an intriguing concept presented in an interesting format, and there are several twists and turns along the way that I won't spoil for anyone. Overall, this is a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice November 7, 2013
By Arf!
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was a bit esoteric and even tedious at times when read like a play with the he said she said arenas. Please try not to look on the left as you read. It is a translation and quite good. I loved it and understood it easily, so give it a try yourself?

3.0 out of 5 stars Scary October 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say I found the ending rather shocking. I shouldn't have. The time line was there. It was an interesting read albeit rather scary. My biggest criticism is for the editing as it was a little difficult to look past the typo's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique style good plot January 1, 2014
By Kenneth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an interesting read, mostly because of the unusual style. My last book was different too, but this one, written in first person using email transcripts, really broke the mold. That said, I was able to follow the plot and found it interesting.
