Phenomenal Read

Fantastic first book to this series. I was poring through the pages as fast as I could. It was a phenomenal book. I give it an A+ all the way around.

It's a page turner but glosses over any of the complex arguments over bio-technology turning the narrative into one long cartoonish and reductio absurdum argument against human intervention in the natural world. Many worthwhile questions about bio-tech could be addressed in an interesting way: Where do you draw the line between things like braces for teeth, repairs of cleft palates, or reconstructive surgery and other more advanced forms of human enhancement? Who will get to decide that? Why should we trust them to make those decisions for ordinary people? Why would we think the gatekeepers would have better, wiser, or more insightful knowledge than the rest of us? Should those decisions be made by the federal government, the states, or just by individuals themselves? Why? Who will appoint the gatekeepers? Would Bill Clinton or Newt Gingrich be in a better position to understand what your needs or interests are than you? Even if the U.S. were to stop all experiments in bio-tech wouldn't that just leave the world's illiberal states free to continue their own experiments? What's the difference between finding ways to foster one's child's intelligence in environmental ways and doing it through engineering? Again, who gets to decide these things and why them?

    Annex Lost

    Just realized right now that I put "Extus..." wow. Super tired. Anyway yeah, BloodClan has done like two raids in the past month and most are usually found talking except last night when I challenged mon ami &agrave a spar. That ended...oddly but at least people started doing something. But nothing since. Your choice but I just thought I'd bring that to your attention considering I often get to see them play with twolegs or eat candy or something along those lines. And now I'm off to bed before I do something stupid.

    Not the Koontz I knew

    Not up to his usual work. I was disappointed in this shallow and not too interesting work. Maybe it reads better to a younger crowd who like the unbelievable.

    don't believe he wrote it......

    Dean Koontz is one of those rare, fabulous, intelligent writers. This book is neither fabulous or intelligent. The writing is so poor I can't believe he actually wrote this book. Perhaps the original idea was his, but if you have read ANY of his other books you will see that the quality and style of the writing in this one is nowhere near his standard. I want my money back........
