This book is a definite must! As someone who is in the "cancer business" I was fascinated and intrigued by this book. It was very interesting and explained clearly how tricky this insidious disease can be, and why we will probably never really conquer it. The writing was insightful and enjoyable and the stories were heartwarming. This was balanced quite evenly with the stories of the failures and frustrations of the author as he confronted his nemesis. This was all told in an interesting and easy to follow manner. I am recommending it as a top five for the year!
Very nice overview of the "bad plant" world. Interesting anecdotes used to illustrate the plants' vices.
Yes. Well written and a very nice overview.
Steady, straightforward and smooth
Not really the type of book that would be easily transferred into film
Definitely in the top of the heap
Characters were well-written and it kept your interest
This was a very good story, as one would expect from Mr. Patterson. It should not, however, have been labelled as an "Alex Cross" story as there is only the thinnest of connections to that character. But the characters were well rounded and very interesting and I really enjoyed listening to their tale. Mr. Baker did a fine job of reading--I felt like I myself was in the deep south!
What a great overview of Frank's work! Although I confess that it brought tears to my eyes that he is no longer with us. Truly the best reader I have come across
