those who are having trouble sleeping
Don't get me wrong, I really like Robin Cook, but I can't imagin how this got published (I know $$$). The theme was intended to be exciting, fast paced and all that, but it really fell flat. I feel that the actual story could have been told in about 30 minutes without all the fluff knitted in the mix. I will continue reading Cook, but I think before I waste any credits, I will wait for some reader reviews to come in.
The story starts out slow and boring, so I kept "reading", waiting for all the action and suspence to grab me and put me in the mix as only a fine author like Cook can do. Unfortunately, it just never happened.
Bottom line, unless you have a heart condition and can not take a lot of excitement, or maybe you have a hard time getting to sleep at nights, you could spend your hard earned credits on bigger and better reads.
This is my 5th reading of this excellent work, and not my last. Mr. Burke has a very great gift of placing the reader "in" the story. You can almost see, hear and taste everything he describes - and without the Stephen Kingish long winded details. And what a great narrator, Mark Hammer. I think he nails the box shut with his charactors. All around, you will love this book and I am sure it will quickly become one of your favorites.
