This, I think, is one of Anderson's best X-Files novels.

Kevin J. Anderson is the author of the book that I read called "Antibodies." This book is about a diseased-ravaged body found in a federally funded lab called Dy Mar genetic research lab. Dr. David Kennessy is a cancer researcher at Dy Mar, and was experimenting on a dangerous microscopic bio-machine that could cure any disease, but the real reason for experimenting is to save his leukemia-stricken son. Agent Fox Mulder and agent Dana Scully from the F.B.I were brought to the case. Scully fights to save the life of an innocent boy while Mulder fights a diseased-stricken man with a slightest touch brings agonizing death. Anderson did a great job of describing the details of the book so you could easily follow what was going on. Anderson's book was great from the second chapter on, when the building was burnt down with the person with the virus still inside the building. Kevin J. Anderson shows a lot of characterization when Mulder and Scully were introduced in the third chapter. Anderson also injected Mulder's sarcasm into the dialogue more than the TV series. In the TV series Scully's fight with cancer is used as a motivating factor in the novel. Overall I think that this novel had an interesting plot, a wonderful storyline, and was well written. Even if you're not a fan of The X-Files like me, it still makes for an interesting read.

I can't even remember where I acquired this ABRIDGED auidobook but I just re-discovered it hidden way down in the bowels of the storage compartment in my vehicle while I was searching for a missing glove (which is, alas, still missing). It rates about a four for me for keeping me entertained while on my long drive to work. My drifty mind wandered only a few times.
The story reminds me very much of something Dean Koontz could've cooked up (I love the way the Koontz writes even when he gets over-the-top silly and meanders off into pages and pages of mind numbing description). This book is fast paced (this author apparently doesn't share Koontz's proclivity for longwindyness) and tells a story of a boy and his dog infected with a cancer, gun-shot wound, burnt to a crisp curing, form of nano-technology. Don't ask. My pea brain can't comprehend it. Anyway, one of the scientists who worked on this technology is also infected with these nano-critters. But he went and infected himself with the bad kind (duh!) and instead of fixing whatever ails him they make him break out with big tumorous lesions and whomever he touches dies of plague-like symptoms. Why? Ya got me. Plague-man is desperately searching for the boy and his dog because he believes their blood will cure him (boy, dog and their mom are hiding). Along the way he touches a few people and grossness occurs. Scully, Mulder and The Smoking Man make a few appearances but this story doesn't bring them to life in any exceptional way and it lacked Mulder's morbid sense of humor (the book would've rated much higher if these characters came alive a bit more). Overall it was interesting, a little icky and very sad at times reminding me of a classic X-Files episode without the Mulderisms.

This is what I expect when I want to read about the X-Files.

Mulder and Scully were their usual dry yet witty selves but never lost track of their investigation or what their overall goals were. Mulder had his usual minor paranoia and over active imagination, Scully had her logical and medical approach to everything that happened and together they mixed very well.

The story was entertaining, not too long and the supporting characters were well written. The disease they were fighting was interesting and the backstory was one we had heard before. A group of people researching a cure to cancer finds something that could be used for great good or great evil and we're all in danger if it gets unleashed upon the world.

It's worth your time and money to pick this one up if you're a fan of the X-Files.

Format: Hardcover
Let me start this off by making something clear: I am the world's biggest X-phile. You can imagine my excitement two and a half years ago when a hardcover novel was released for the X-files, titled "Ground Zero." I picked it up, I read it and I hated it. The same holds true with "Ruins." I could not believe Chris Carter would allow an author like Kevin J. Anderson to try to bring his wonderful characters to life in print. "Antibodies" was no exception. I had to add the book to my collection, but I knew I wouldn't like it. Fortunatley, I found a forum such as this one to spread the word about this travesty in print.The plot was poor, the characterization was way off-base and Anderson's concept of suspense and story is just way...for lack of a better term...hokey. The one positive thing about this book, however, is that Anderson did not have Mulder constantly wisecracking as he had him do in "Ruins." I was also glad that Anderson did not have Scully conveinently out of the picture when the big neat-o (In Anderson's feeble mind) "Paranormal Event of the Book" (which happens due to his poor formulaic writing) occurs. I can only hope that "Skin," due out this month by another author, is better than this book. Come on, Chris, put out some printed product that meets your high on-camera standards. And let's all hope that Kevin Anderson loses the use of his hands so he can't write any more.
