    Jamie Metzl s novel is a thrilling look into the near future He examines what technologies will be at our disposal in our everyday lives, how our relationship with China will be framed due to our crippling debt, the future of the freedoms we now take for granted like freedom of the press, and the politics that surround the human genetic revolution I was struck by his ability to master storytelling I quickly fell into the pages and barely looked up because of the wild ride that ensued The Jamie Metzl s novel is a thrilling look into the near future He examines what technologies will be at our disposal in our everyday lives, how our relationship with China will be framed due to our crippling debt, the future of the freedoms we now take for granted like freedom of the press, and the politics that surround the human genetic revolution I was struck by his ability to master storytelling I quickly fell into the pages and barely looked up because of the wild ride that ensued The Genesis Code is a smart thriller based on pseudoscience that could easily become an ethics battle based on real science in the real world I highly recommend this intelligent mystery Not only could I not put it down, but I can t get it out of my head Put this book at the top of your reading list

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through the Goodreads First Reads giveaways This book was pretty goodit seemed like it wascrime oriented rather than the science fiction that it promised, so I had a difficult time getting into it and following it in a few places, but all in all it was a pretty interesting read.

    OkHard to get into Interesting concept The Kansas City references fun but may be lost on no residents It s not like we live in an iconic city.

    I won Eternal Sonata by the same author and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to read this book written prior to that book Again, I m not necessarily a big fan of science fiction but when it blends reality with imagination and is set in the near future with a moral I really enjoy it These books are political in nature and it isn t much of a leap to actually believe that if certain abuses are left unchecked that the future could very well be as the one imagined in the novelmuch like Orwell s I won Eternal Sonata by the same author and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to read this book written prior to that book Again, I m not necessarily a big fan of science fiction but when it blends reality with imagination and is set in the near future with a moral I really enjoy it These books are political in nature and it isn t much of a leap to actually believe that if certain abuses are left unchecked that the future could very well be as the one imagined in the novelmuch like Orwell s 1984 this book really hits home with a caution regarding humans playing G0d left unchecked and what havoc can be wreaked in the name of progress regarding the practic of genetic manipulation Definitely recommend

    I enjoyed this book being a bit of a science nerd I found the story original albeit the characters somewhat predictable The whole concept of genetic mutations and race I found fascinating.

    I really liked the writing, but there were too many plot holes for me to truly enjoy it.

    See the rest of the review here.I loved the start of this novel a whole lot, enough that half way through I had already decided to give it a high rating The first half is very strong But the last act is a tad of a let down Rich Azadian is a reporter with commitment issues and a tragic past In fact, his past is part of the reason he obsesses with the dead girl, wanting to find out what happened to her His sister was killed years before, and he hasn t really dealt the senselessness of it all See the rest of the review here.I loved the start of this novel a whole lot, enough that half way through I had already decided to give it a high rating The first half is very strong But the last act is a tad of a let down Rich Azadian is a reporter with commitment issues and a tragic past In fact, his past is part of the reason he obsesses with the dead girl, wanting to find out what happened to her His sister was killed years before, and he hasn t really dealt the senselessness of it all.When MaryLee Stock dies, he goes through great lengths to find out if it was murder I was on board with him and Joseph, his Indian assistant, as they, little by little, piece together who and what was involved His suspicion lead him to politicians, the government, radicals, and religious leaders It was all very intriguing.The writing itself was a charm The author did not waste any words The story goes from one scene to another, one great plot point to another, one day to another No dull moments The MC questioned the same things I did, and he got the questions or figured it out around the same time I did The writer takes you on a fun journey while at the same time not letting you get restless or anxious about where the plot is going.The main character was interesting in that he not only questioned his job, the loss of his sister, and MaryLee, he also questioned life He wantedout of it I could understand why he didn t want to commit to anyone He didn t understand himself enough to want to pretend he understood someone else, and so when his ex walks back into his life he needs her to solve the puzzle his hesitation made perfect sense to me Even the conclusion at the end of the story made sense because by that time a lot had happened to him and all the characters involved I did not have a problem with Rich But I did have major issues with everyone else in his life.All the secondary characters were too eager to please Rich They all sacrificed a lot and risked evento help him figure out a puzzle that at first didn t make much sense I could understand why his girlfriend, who still had feelings for him, would go along with it all, but the other helpers, including his editor and the detective on the job, who were supposed to have strong personalities, were all quickly swayed by Rich They at times seemed like plot devices The tough but helpful editor at his newspaper, the tough butthan willing to hear him out detective, the tech guy, the scientisteveryone had a profession and a role that the story ultimately needed for all of it to come together at the end There isto this, but I don t want to reveal too much No spoilers here.Now, the dreaded last act My problem with it was that I started figuring out the main plot a lot faster than Rich, and everything worked out perfectly and exactly how Rich needed it to No casualties No consequences They all lived happily ever after The good guy won I don t have a problem with this thought process, but in this story it all worked out too well Every one believed Rich and took his advice on almost everything Everyone ended up yielding The high stakes didn t seem so high once it was all nicely wrapped up in a fantastical bow.However, the one part that I did like about the ending was how this near future exposes the world to how genetic engineering can be used for terrible things that lead to devastating results How science and religion can be both helpful and destructive How trying to get ahead could lead everyone back I loved the world of Genesis Code It was a very realistic place, not too different from the near future we might all have The science is compelling The ideas inventive The plot was fun And so I still recommend it because of all the good

    I received this book from first reads on goodreads This is an honest review.I have to admit this wasn t really what I was expecting after reading the blurb, but that didn t turn out to be a bad thing It is part science fiction and part journalist mystery It starts off right away with some action to get you hooked and stays with that momentum until the end I think it could make a pretty good film as well I liked the main character You get to know different sides to his personality and under I received this book from first reads on goodreads This is an honest review.I have to admit this wasn t really what I was expecting after reading the blurb, but that didn t turn out to be a bad thing It is part science fiction and part journalist mystery It starts off right away with some action to get you hooked and stays with that momentum until the end I think it could make a pretty good film as well I liked the main character You get to know different sides to his personality and understand the reasons why he reacts to situations the way he does Though I enjoyed the dimensionality of Dikran, I wish at least a few of the supporting characters were half as well defined They were a little flat and I didn t care as much about their ultimate fates I found the love interest to be a little on the condescending side as well.Overall, it was a pleasant reading experience I would recommend it to fans of mystery, crime or stories that take place in the near future
