Publisher's Summary

Just a few hundred genes separate humans from chimpanzees. Imagine someone altering the chimp genome, splicing in human genes to increase the size of the cranium, reduce the amount of body hair, enable speech. What sort of creature would result? 

Sims takes place in the very near future, when the science of genetics is fulfilling its vaunted potential. It’s a world where genetically transmitted diseases are being eliminated. A world where dangerous or boring manual labor is gradually being transferred to “sims”, genetically altered chimps who occupy a gray zone between simian and human. The chief innovator in this world is SimGen, which owns the patent on the sim genome and has begun leasing the creatures worldwide. 

But SimGen is not quite what it seems. It has secrets, secrets beyond patents and proprietary processes - secrets it will go to any lengths to protect. Sims explores this brave new world as it is turned upside down and torn apart when lawyer Patrick Sullivan decides to try to unionize the sims. 

Right now, as you read these words, some company somewhere in the world is toying with the chimp genome. That is not fiction, it is fact. Sims is a science thriller that will come true, one way or another.

Fantastic Story

I read this book years ago and was excited to revisit now that the audiobook has been released. The story was even better than I remembered and the narration was excellent.

Amazing

Simply put, an amazing read! I really hope the author keeps this going. I can’t say too much without giving away the story, but we need a part 2

Eh

The narrator is good, but the book could have been a lot better. I really like F Paul Wilson’s work but it didn’t seem like he really knew what direction he wanted to go in the story. The character and plot development are great, but then the book just flopped. I would not recommend it.
