Any additional comments?

Too much dialogue, not enough action. Narrator sounded like he had a horrible cold when portraying female characters. I gave it a good try but couldn't finish the book. Not money well spent.

A convicted felon is given a choice following his sentencing: serve a 25-year conventional prison sentence...or spend 365 days in a new, experimental corrections program. He opts for the experimental program, only to realize he has made a horrible mistake. A dark tale of science spun dangerously out of control, Exoskeleton will leave even the most jaded of listeners quaking in their boots.

What did you love best about Exoskeleton: A Novel?

I go through 3 - 4 books a month and I have never written a review until I finished reading Exoskeleton. It gripped me from the very start and I was hooked until the end. Note to author: Please hurry up and write more books!
