After reading the summary, I was absolutely intrigued. The concept of surgically separating the right and left halves of the brain, and how that affects communication within the brain, AND a murder mystery? Sounded fascinating.
It wasn't. Obviously I'm minority in this thought, but it was very underdeveloped.
The author obviously did her homework when it came to the surgical procedure and psychological aftermath. She definitely knows her stuff. Unfortunately, I do not feel like the author has any experience with general police investigations, much less, suspicious death investigations. Or perhaps she neglected to consult with any members of law enforcement, or personnel related to a medical examiners office, to learn more about the protocol and procedures involved. The primary detective is an idiot by any agency's standards, and extremely unlikable, as were most of the characters. I had trouble connecting with any of them, and was literally writhing through areas of the book. Some moments would have been bettered by any character utilizing basic common sense.
The good? I give two stars for the incredibly smart concept and basic story. Really enjoyed the antagonist, and how s/he is introduced and developed, but there was far to little of him/her in the story. Too bad, because It really is an interesting character. If the author did a re-write. Same concept, same story line, more likable and sharper characters. Get together with professionals to get a base understanding of how other fields may actually apply their knowledge and experiences to such an event? Wow, she could have a real stunner. The foundation is set and sturdy, but the frame work needs major renovation.
The books was exciting, fun and well research. Anna was a lovable character and you can feel sympathy for her condition but in spite the troubles Anna remains a strong character which everybody can admire. I can't imagine how a 15 year old girl can undergo such trauma and trouble not just with the murder but living her life after the surgery. While reading this novel, I keep on imagining an episode in House (House series, Hugh Laurie?). The supporting characters were also okay but I think needs a little development, same with Mischa. Another observation I have is the couple of errors in the eBook itself, a little editing would solve that. Asides these issues, the book is a great read.
Anybody who enjoys reading about mysteries, medical drama and mystery, family issues and health issues should read this book. It was a short but great read. It is a great book to read for passing time or when you are on travel.
I enjoyed this book very much, and could not put it down at points. The main characters are, for the most part, believable. However, I felt that Mischa could have been a little more fully developed, as well as the detective. The story moved along at a nice pace, and the complex medical concepts were explained in a lay-person's terms.
I wish Amazon allowed for a half-star rating. It's better than average, good pacing, good plot.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it, however, $2.99 for a Kindle book with a nicely-developed plot, great concept, and interesting characters is a great value, and had I not received the complimentary copy, I would have purchased the book to read it.
