    In Frankenstein: Lost Souls, Dean Koontz puts a singular twist on this classic tale of ambition and science gone wrong, to forge a new legend uniquely suited to our times. It is a story of revenge, redemption, and the thin line that separates human from inhuman.

    Lane says: "Frankenstein Lost Souls"
    "Bummer"
    Overall

    Koontz is my guilty pleasure. Like Kettle Corn, if it's around, I want all of it. I feel like this book is part epilogue, part prologue, and ends just when things are getting started.

    If you are a fan of this series, then nothing I say will dissuade you. If I had it to do over again, I would wait until the next installment is released and then read them both back to back.

    Like Kettle Corn, I wish there was more but I'm ashamed for how much I love it.

    Thank goodness DK is prolific and knows his audience.

    Next book, next month? Fingers (and toes) crossed.

    Story
    (1142)

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Ione says: "Interesting book, very enjoyable narration"
    "Intelligent yet goofy"

    Would you try another book from Robert J. Sawyer and/or Jonathan Davis and Robert J. Sawyer ?

    Yes


    Would you recommend Calculating God to your friends? Why or why not?

    It's a good read and provokes thought in a direction I don't normally go


    What does Jonathan Davis and Robert J. Sawyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the variety of characters and dialects


    Do you think Calculating God needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure. It's a good topic to explore. But the whole end of the universe may be a challenge.
