I couldn't get into this book. The premise was interesting and some of the characters were appealing but I felt like the story jumped around too much--and without enough transition from place to place or time to time. This gave the story a disjointed feeling for me.
I kept listening to this one, because I was curious about the outcome, but it was something I had to make myself do. Usually I look forward to walking or going for a drive because of the story I'm 'reading' but this one didn't grab me and I had to force myself to keep going.
I don't know how much of a difference it would have made to have read the other Darwin book (didn't realize there WAS a previous storyline) but if you haven't read it I don't really recommend this one.
The second part of Darwin's Radio, the book is very timely in the exploration of US Government Agency's response to new dangers real and imagined. With a hopeful message of hope that a people caught up in fear of the unknown regain their footing and return to the values of our founding fathers.
This book has an interesting premise. It follows a long line of other titles that have a "Me against the World" theme. It is definitely a good listen since it is well read. I found the book a bit uneven in parts, but that is why they call them unabridged versions.
I got into this book with the synopsis sounding interesting. I, however, found this to be a thinly diguised effort to criticise the current government with the story line somewhere between responses to AIDS and the war against Islamic Terrorists. If you liked " An Inconvenient Truth", you will probaly fall for this one too.
