Although I would term this story a thriller more than a science fiction I have to say it was good and very suspenseful. The story was short but I felt the author was successful in building up the small events to eventually reveal the final bigger one. The story is about Dr. Peters who makes a big discovery while researching genetically modified food and how that discovery affects the industry and people.
I would say this would make a fun short read for anybody who wants something suspenseful but short at the same time.
I picked this up for free in the Amazon Kindle store and, as I type this review, the price is 99 cents - I think you will get a little more than 99 cents worth of entertainment from this one.
I think my favorite part of this story though (it totally made me laugh) was how the Vegetarians were having to try and figure out what they could actually eat that wouldn't make them look like hypocrites.
Great story, I will be reading more by this author.
With the interest and concerns currently surrounding genetically modified foods,
combined with the state of politics in our country today, this sci-fi type story
doesn't seem that far fetched. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it and it was
just supposed to be fun? In which case, it succeeded.
