This book seemed to have great promise, but never really followed through. There was no character development and as a result, instead of being caught up by the story, I felt like I was on the outside looking in, always waiting for something to happen. It was confusing in parts and I struggled to finish.
Sounded like it would be such an interesting book but it was so disapointing. I found it insulting to the intelligence in places and very hard to finish. The characters were never developed and their actions within the story line were at most times completely ludicrous. After a supposed discovery of this magnitude, the author then wants us to believe that these scientists are more concerned with Bbq and hooking up, than in a parallel universe. The accents were atrocious - if you can't do a Jamaican or French Canadian accent, then don't try - very confusing.
Unfortunately, this rating system dosen't allow for minus stars because this book is definate candidate. If your looking for a great book, wonderfully written and read, skip this and try Day of the Triffids - superb.
