This was a difficult book to put down. Rosen is a likable, yet flawed character whose single-minded tenacity had me rooting for him even when I was most annoyed with him.
In addition to Rosen, Samson has created a supporting cast of characters who range from diabolical dictators, pedantic professors, and eccentric billionaires caught in the web of men who value immortality over all else.
Samson challenged me with his science-driven plot that frequently ventures into philosophy, while charming me with local references to the Boston area setting of the novel. But what kept me up late reading The Rosen Singularity was Samson's clever plotting - I never knew what would happen next and I was eager to read just one more page to find out.
While the novel will resonate with Jewish readers or those, like me, who are admirers of and deep participants in Jewish culture though not themselves Jewish, I think readers of any faith or none at all will find it very worthwhile. L'chaim and mazeltov, Mr. Samson. Very well done.
Dr. Rosen David is slightly on the edge of autism, but he works at finding avenues to human relationships. his mathematical research into obscure medical findings is his first love. He looks for patterns in the numbers; evidence he can prove.
His work is consuming as he discovers a major break through in the field of placenta research, but he is blocked at every turn to publish.
When it becomes evident that someone is out to make sure his work doesn't not become public his life is endangered. As his life falls apart and his marriage fails he discovers a new love. A real love where he can connect with as a human being.
Non stop exploration into the annals of medical research plus facinating characters. An excellent read.
Nash Black, author of PRELUDE OF DEATH.
There was nothing wrong with this book or the author's writing, IF the reader understands what's going on and there was so much scientific explanation that I had to force myself to wade through it in order to find out what happened in the end.
