This is book one in a trilogy that was recommended to me by my Kindle. I figured, having read Origin by Dan Brown, it could be similar. This book is set in the future where you can decide what color eyes and hair your baby will have, and what their IQ will be. And gene therapy can permanently change your own hair and eye color. I’ve only read 20% of the book and already I’ve been introduced to many of the different characters involved in the book. Already I’m hooked.
One week later: Well, I’m going to have to say that I do not recommend this book to people who believe in science. I came to a scenario in the book where an archeological dig had unearthed a fossil of a man inside the stomach of a dinosaur – in three chunks. There are people of certain faiths who believe that men and dinosaurs roamed the earth at the same time, but I do not. The story goes on to ruin this archeologist’s reputation because scientific convention cannot reconcile a man’s fossilized remains inside any dinosaur. And so the rest of the book tries to prove that the archeologist really did find what he said he found. I cannot suspend my belief for this book. I must respectfully disagree with people of faith who may actually enjoy this book. I am not a scientist, but I have my belief system based on science. I don’t want to offend anyone who believes otherwise. This is a work of fiction, and so it is. But if you enjoyed the Left Behind series, like I did, even so, you would like this Trilogy. And the price is very reasonable for three books.
