The Immortalists

It’s a question microbiologist Richard Draman thought he’d answered when he walked away from his career to focus on curing a genetic defect that is causing his daughter to age at a wildly accelerated rate. But now he and his wife Carly are being forced to come to terms with the fact that eight-year-old Susie’s time is running out.

Publisher's Summary

It’s a question microbiologist Richard Draman thought he’d answered when he walked away from his career to focus on curing a genetic defect that is causing his daughter to age at a wildly accelerated rate. But now he and his wife Carly are being forced to come to terms with the fact that eight-year-old Susie’s time is running out. Then they receive an unexpected gift: startling new research into the fundamental secrets of life that could be the miracle they’ve been looking for.

When Richard is arrested on a trumped-up charge of having stolen the data, he takes his family and runs, seeking out a retired special-forces operative and old friend to help dig up the truth behind the controversial experiments. Determined to either save Susie’s life or die trying, the Dramans plunge into a bloody conflict between two powerful factions vying for control of a discovery that could change the face of humanity.

    Story
    "Plain Old Thriller"

    This book had all the basic ingredients of a thriller. Being chased by the bad guys, a kindly old special-forces guy, and a super rich villain. I guess there's a reason these components work so often. This story struck me as nothing special or new, but none-the-less entertaining. I never had any big surprise moments, but I wasn't bored either.

    Story
    "As Advertised, Action and a Little Bit Futurist"

    I grabbed this because of the title, I didn't think it was going to be an action and intrigue book, though I should have.

    Richard and Carly: Husband and Wife trying to save their Daughter, stumble onto an international cover up that could change the entire human race...but at a cost.

    Solid characters who are going through tremendous suffering and rising up to find the truth.
    I really felt the author understood the pain of loss.

    Some surprises, some I guessed. It was a solid, long drive kind of book, action packed and taking you in different directions. Also glad that there was no attempt to completely explain how the catalyst is produced.

    Thank you Kyle Mills for finally answering a question I posed to Robert Sawyer about his book Rollback- "what are cellular consequences of immortality?" (FYI, he refused to answer me)

    Reader was ok. I liked all the voices EXCEPT the child, who sounded like a puppet character from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.

    Story
    "Kyle Mills has lost it....."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I barely got through this one. The last 3 or so, including this one, from Kyle have been mediocre at best. I would not recomend this one either. While the story is ok at best, it just dragged on. I miss the sarcasm of Beamon and all that he brought to the story. I think this will be the last one I take a chance on.
