Although this book is from 1997, which seems so long ago, it is current with the ideas of the world today.

It was a quick read and totally addicting. The ending was a total shock! On every page turned there was an unexpected turn of events or a suprising event that you'd never expect to happen.

If you like science fiction, than you'll love this book.

I highly recommend this book! You'll get lost in it!

This book was quite OK. This book is more science fiction, but with a medical bent to it. I felt it was a modern-day version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," and I couldn't get that thought out of my mind for the duration of the entire novel. The characters are great, and believeable, and the plot was fine, just not as great as his other books.

This was a weird one. Robin Cook makes a foray into science fiction territory with this story of how ordinary people are turned into human/alien hybrid zombies - obsessed, no less, with improving the environment. The story was pretty out there, but I have to say it was at least somewhat entertaining.

A change of pace for Cook who pulls out all the stops in this heart-racing account of people being taken over by mysterious beings without even realizing it. I couldn't stop reading!

This book kept my interest all the way through. It was a good science fiction read. Robin Cook hasn't written a book I didn't like.
