Editorial Reviews

Review

From The Daily Journal
By Phil Angelo, Senior Editor
In Medieval times, miracles were an accepted fact. But what would happen if indisputable evidence emerged of God's existence in the modern world?  That's the theme of "The God Gene," by Jaymie Simmon. . . Nothing, well, almost nothing, is held back.
 
Rosalind Evans is a dedicated cancer researcher working in Chicago. Her work involves gene therapy aimed at curing leukemia. A computer run of letters representing parts of the gene seems to spell out . . . The Ten Commandments. What happens next is reminiscent of the 1977 film "Oh, God". . . The humor here runs the gamut from laugh-out-loud to dark. The book is not very kind to the establishment. . . Television reporters come across as individually unscrupulous and collectively annoying. Politicians lie. Both groups are willing to pervert or twist the truth for their own ends. A love story runs throughout, which helps hold out hope for a happy ending.  
 
Simmon's book contains great detail. . . She has a lot of interesting characters walk through the pages -- a computer tech on the make, a scheming Catholic Cardinal, a small state governor with big political ambitions. . . The book also has a dynamite ending. Just when you think you have reached the conclusion, there is another twist. . . 
Dialogue is good and description is first rate. The book reflects what I'm sure many people believe -- that the political, intellectual and religious leadership has failed. That those not in power are more decent than those in power. In truth, they are usually no worse, nor no better, than the rest of us. But having God shake them up wouldn't do any harm.  And it might be worth a laugh.
