I refused to read any reviews, blurbs or other promotional material for this book as I didn't want to know what the title meant. So I won't tell you either! I found the plot a bit convoluted and not Hill's best though it has good touches and it's not bad, just not my favourite but still quite enjoyable.
Purchased on 10th March 2007.
This is a good kind of book for reading in those spaces of time where you don't really have time to read. I could do with more books like it. It's a compendium of a hundred of Steve Jones's newspaper science articles (from the Daily Telegraph I think) and makes for interesting and thought provoking interludes without needing to engage your brain too deeply.
I've had mixed feelings about this series in the past but I enjoyed this one after leaving the series alone for a couple of years. Well written, well plotted and entertaining story and the characters seemed true to life.
Intriguing in the beginning, it got slower and slower until I found myself skim reading the last fifty pages or so just to get rid of it. Not my thing though I did think it was quite promising. Just a bit too weird for me I think.
A copy of this book is available on BookMooch.
