With such a fascinating premise, I'd hoped this would be a plot-driven novel. Instead, the author seemed too focused on his protagonist, Parker Haas, in particular--and I thought there was far too much dialogue, which perhaps was in the service of further fleshing out the inner conflicts of that main character. I get it, that Haas felt conflicted, but the disease, the political situation, and the societal impact, in my opinion, was so much more fascinating.
Probably "The Accident", by Chris Pavone.
There wasn't enough difference between their voices, in my opinion. But I didn't really have a problem with the narration or the production, it's just that the book was not to my taste.
Not sure any one character needed to be cut so much as there was too much dialogue and not enough plot progress--for my taste, though maybe this novel is more literary than what I personally wanted, in that I guess the author's goal was too explore character more than plot.
I actually hope this book will be made into a movie because I would love to see this premise explored in a plot-driven manner. I apologize to the author for writing a negative review--I know how hard it is to write novels, and I can tell from the prose that he worked hard on this and that he's a great writer, it just wasn't my type of read.
