Publisher's Summary

Aliens have landed in New York.

A deadly cloud of spores has already infected and killed the inhabitants of two worlds. Now the plague is heading for Earth, threatening humans and aliens alike. Can either species be trusted to find the cure?

Geneticist Marianne Jenner is immersed in the desperate race to save humanity, yet her family is tearing itself apart. Siblings Elizabeth and Ryan are strident isolationists who agree only that an alien conspiracy is in play. Marianne's youngest, Noah, is a loner addicted to a drug that constantly changes his identity. But between the four Jenners, the course of human history will be forever altered.

Earth's most elite scientists have 10 months to prevent human extinction - but not everyone is willing to wait.

More pseudo- than sci-fiction

I appreciated the premise but the writing was little more than simple google-like references to the technological context of the story. Making the actual story, a bit of a slog. In addition, it just keeps getting more and more abrupt, key characters get development and then culled. Fiction used as factual story components is then demystified as 'fiction'. ultimately, there are several promising storylines that could have been really well developed, but somehow they get so poorly treated that even if they were to be developed, the level of annoyance at their progression prohibits wanting to bother.

Total waste if time and money

At one point I was hoping that it was Arrival awkwardly turning into Darwin's Radio, but it never really did . And the final act was such an insult my intelligence I thought it was written for my six year old.
Do not bother with this low quality writing. If not for the completely unnecessary "sex scenes", I would have thought it was little kids book.
What a disgrace for the author of Beggars in Spain.

Meandering

And 80 % longer than it should have been. WOULD have been better as a novella.

Not Really Sure What I just Listened To...

I have to say that I've just finished listening to this book and, I'm afraid to say, completely baffled about what it was all supposed to be about...

It started off with a reasonable chance of going somewhere interesting; however, around half way, it became a children's book. The language changed, and the story just stopped moving in any specific direction.

Very disappointed.
