    Great premise but pretty flat. Gratuitous sex scenes that reall

    Great premise but pretty flat. Gratuitous sex scenes that really have no bearing on the plot. Listened to the book as an audio book and really wished I could speed listen. Kept hoping it would get better but it didn't.

    Good beginning - disappointing ending

    Very imaginative. The novel starts out great but really doesn't come to any climax. The ending was very weak. Maybe this is just the set up for a sequel or watermind series. I 'd like to know what happens next.

    Fans will enjoy touring Louisiana with the WATERMIND host

    Although her future seemed bright, CJ Reilly dropped out of MIT graduate school. She heads south with hopes of cleansing her disturbed mind. In sweltering but polluted Devil¿s Pond, Louisiana she finds a strange phenomena that should not be there: ice. After testing a sample, CJ believes she has found a magical elixir to save the water supply the ice purifies water. ------------- However, the ice turns even more mysterious when she observes it react to music and display locomotion skills. When the ice kills scientist Roman Saxony, CJ reconsiders her belief she will be a world hero. Instead she needs to destroy the metamorphosing ice that has ¿waded¿ into the Mississippi before it destroys the world.------------- An engaging cautionary science fiction warning people to watch how they dispose of their discards (in this case electronic, but easily extrapolates to drugs in the water systems and nuclear energy byproduct waste, etc). In some ways the ice seems like the Blob however unlike both of the films that stars heroes, none of the humans especially CJ is heroic as everyone seems to have their own agenda. Fans will enjoy touring Louisiana with the WATERMIND host.----------- Harriet Klausner
