This unusual structure keeps appearing throughout the book . Chats, e-mails, and then a surprising turn, usually written as a short story. Odd at first, I got used to it very fast and after a while I was very into it. A very immersing experience.
This unique structure keeps the plot going in many ways. It is basically the story of a computer genius (no spoilers here), trying to crack the human genome in an underground military lab.
Although it has a very fast pace, this book is actually very philosophical, and very into religion. It has very tough questions about God, offers an original theory about the story of the Garden of Eden, and raises very good questions about our destiny as a species.
On the other hand, it's a story of a very lonely young man, who lost his father to cancer, and fighting it himself. Among other things. He also falls in love with his college - and if I'll reveal more it WILL be a spoiler.
Overall - this book made a deep impression. It forced me to be on my toes due to the rapidly changing writing styles, as well as the twists and turns in the plot. Unlike most books, this one leaves gaps in the plot - but not in a bad way. It doesn't explain everything. It leaves questions unanswered. As I said - it made me think. Not many boos do.
In a good way!
The writing style I have never seen before. Most of the dialogue was in the form of internet chats, or messages where they write with pee......seriously.
The plot kept you on your toes, wondering what was going to happen next. You follow a young man as he finds out that he is going to develop cancer. Then, even more disturbingly, a plot that could end the human race as we know it.
The ending kept you wondering.....almost like the end of a horror movie.
However the actual writing of this great idea is much less. Much of the problem, I think, is a mediocre translation from Hebrew to English. Another problem is using Instant Messaging and email as the main writing style, and almost randomly changing pseudonyms like some Russian novel, and switching back and forth between that and normal prose, and the unexplained trips to NYC. It all detracts tremendously from what should have been a great sci-fi novel, and is a slog to read through.
