Publisher's Summary

After a tumultuous year in which her mentor is murdered and her estranged father comes back into her life, Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City. Intrigued by the promise of the burgeoning field of medical technology and the chance to clear her head, Pia takes a job at Nano, LLC, a lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology insititute in the picturesque foothills of the Rockies. Nano, LLC is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nano-robots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria.

But the corporate campus is a place of secrets. She's warned by her boss not to investigate the other work being done at the gigantic facility, nor to ask questions about the source of the seemingly endless capital that funds the institute's research. And when Pia encounters a fellow employee on a corporate jogging path, suffering the effects of a seizure, she soon realizes she may have literally stumbled upon Nano LLC's human guinea pigs. Is the tech giant on the cusp of one of the biggest medical discoveries of the 21st century - a treatment option for millions - or have they already sold out to the highest bidder?

    "12 plus hours of listening for what?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure.


    Has Nano turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I was enjoying the plot of this book, but obviously Robin Cook couldn't think of a good ending so he just stopped the story.

    "What's up with this new formula?"
    Would you try another book from Robin Cook and/or George Guidall?

    I've read all of Robin Cook's novels and was dissappointed with this product.


    Any additional comments?

    Robin Cook should remain true to his brand and formula. This books departure left me wanting and dissapointed at the end.

    "Don't waste your money. Bad for a Robin Cook book"
    What would have made Nano better?

    Not wasting time giving constant time. date, place updates. implausible story line.Book has no ending. It just stops and goes to short epilog.


    What could Robin Cook have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Finished it.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by George Guidall?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Would have given it a "0" if it was a choice.

    "A true rip-off"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't think anyone wants a book without an ending!


    If you’ve listened to books by Robin Cook before, how does this one compare?

    The worst!


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I always enjoy him.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    A good story, a bit slow in places, but good concept.


    Any additional comments?

    I should have paid attention to the reviews. I have never been so let down by a book. I even cued back to see if I missed the ending somehow, but no, there simply is no ending. If you want to avoid frustration, DO NOT order this book.

    "sorry I bought it"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is the first book by Robin Cook I thought was boring and not worth the money. They characters are flat no emotions and you just are trying to find someone to care about. The book just ends. Terrible listening you were glad when it was over.

    "Wat da?"

    The ending was terrible. It was like the author tired of the story and didnt finish it leaving George and Pia's father just hanging. It is like the author was just transitiioning to a sequel.

    "The Ending... Wasn't!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book would have been for me had it had an ending. Another five or ten minutes could have wrapped things up, but instead it just quit! I couldn't believe my ears!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot was good as were the characters. I must admit though, I really feel cheated by the ending.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George Guidall is the Master of Masters! He could read a telephone book and make it a great read.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nano?

    I wouldn't have cut any, but I sure would have added at least one more to the ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointing. Robin Cook and his editors blew it!!!

    "It was just ok"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I tried and tried to really get into this book and found myself forcing myself to read hoping it would get better and it did not. I LOVE Robin Cook's books but this one just did not do it for me. Sorry


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robin Cook? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think he's a great author!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It moved very slow.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd look at his other books, this one did not impress me at all.

    "Can't believe I wasted my time"

    I normally enjoy Robin Cook's medical thrillers, but this one was a bummer. I was into the plot until it became so ridiculous. I am not into science fiction. I replayed the last 3 minutes thinking that my iPod had malfunction or that my download was corrupted. No such luck. That was the end of the story. After listing for hours with the most minute details given, the end just happened! No explanation, details, etc. Wasted time.
