Premise OK, dialogue and characters awful
Admittedly I only read a 23 page Nook sample. The characters were cliched and one dimensional, with dialogue better suited to pulp romance fiction. I feel that if you can't produce believable characters and dialogue, the plot is irrelevent. The premise of genetic modification to remove the need for sleep is ok, but I would have preferred if the author used the premise to address concerns of overworked medical specialists, infantry troops and public safety officials, or even the genetic disorder Fatal Familial Insomnia. Instead she chose designer genetic modification which just added to the B movie quality of the book for me.
