Nano

Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City.

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?

    Story
    "Bummer of a book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who enjoys a really depresssing ending with the "good guys" losing and the "bad guys" winning will find this a real charmer.


    What was most disappointing about Robin Cook’s story?

    It starts out as very interesting, but fairly quickly turns very dark, and ends up in complete blackness. It was no fun at all, just depressing.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by George Guidall?

    Sure, narrator was fine.


    What character would you cut from Nano?

    The characters were okay, the story was not.


    Any additional comments?

    Unless you enjoy being bummed out, read something else.

    "Not his best work"

    The story is not fully developed and the main characters are kind of annoying- especially Pia.

    Story
    "Not Cook's best, but worth the listen."

    The tech medical wording was a little hard to follow, but the premise was interesting. Some of it will probably come to pass in the future.
