Publisher's Summary

Dan Wells' Extreme Makeover is a satirical new suspense novel about a health and beauty company that accidentally develops a hand lotion that can overwrite your DNA.

Lyle Fontanelle is the chief scientist for NewYew, a health and beauty company experimenting with a new antiaging hand lotion. As more and more anomalies crop up in testing, Lyle realizes that the lotion's formula has somehow gone horribly wrong. It is actively overwriting the DNA of anyone who uses it, turning them into physical clones of someone else. Lyle wants to destroy the formula, but NewYew thinks it might be the greatest beauty product ever designed - and the world's governments think it's the greatest weapon.

New York Times best-selling author Dan Wells brings us a gripping corporate satire about a health and beauty company that could destroy the world in Extreme Makeover.

    Story
    "fascinating book"

    asks questions about society, self, and ways that we may destroy ourselves.

    Once you get past the meeting at the beginning, it moves fast.

    Story
    "Apocalypse Edition indeed"

    I have enjoyed every Dan Wells book I've read to varying degrees of success, and his first adult protagonist with adult concerns and ethics gripped me almost immediately. Between scientific forays into the cosmetics industry and the greed behind everything that drives the narrative, you feel almost as helpless as the characters, although I felt the urge on multiple occasions to slap a few of them upside the head. The feel of the novel echoes Stephen King in places; sinister evil lurking within the characters themselves, that they will either overcome or they will let it seal their doom.

    "It's the little thing that will kill."

    I loved the cynical look at the way the world reacts to beauty products. Awesome!

    Story
    "Good storyline - weak main character"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this story as the storyline is pretty interesting. However, the main character is not my favourite. He isn't the type to go getter and fix the problem and face things. He tends to run and hide and try only as hard as he needs to.


    Any additional comments?

    The principle of the story is great. It's worth a read.
