    A Good ScFi Book

    In the Novel The X-Files Skin By Ben Mezrich Mulder and Scully are trying to find the person behind the disease thats on the skin and that gets people with superhuman strength and then dies later on. In the beginning of the book these two med. students are getting skin of a donor that is already dead for a professer that burned his skin in a water heater accendent that a bunch of steam went on his thigh. so after the opperation the doctor said he's find and everything went wrong from there. Agent Fox Mulder and Dana Scully got on the scene and ask workers and police what happened to the body of the professer where did it go and so on then they see a bloodbath in the Hosptial room where Perry Stanton was at and not no more only to find a nurse on the ground dead. As the Agents are investigating this strange case the Bureau is keeping everytthing hidden from Mulder and Scully. soon on Mulder and Scully are in Thailand searching for an abandoned MASH unit were nalpalm victims were treated for there injuryies even if some of the victims were nursed back to health and may not see there famlies. Scully goes on a hunt to find a experimental medical technology while Mulder stakes are even more higher than scully's while they try to find the Thai Monster known has the Skinn Eater. Ben Mezrich did a real good job in creating this novel because it even says on the back of the novel he's a X-Files Fan for many years and that he used to draw cartoons for a living but in the book he did good explaining every detail that Mulder and Scully went through, how everything that happened from begining to end. I my self really liked this novel its one of the best Science Fiction novels I read and i like the X-Files on tv because im really into top secert stuff like when Mulder searches for aliens and he thinks theres life out there so I think who ever likes the X-Files or Science Fiction Novels you should read this book

    Good book, but a weak ending.

    The book itself draws you in to the myth of the dark plan of one corporation and the mysterious 'Skin Eater', a true X-files subject. The beginning and middle part were superb. However, the plot fell apart in the end. Not enough was explained for the story, which left me confused. Still a good book, I will recommand it to anyone who is a fan of X-Files.
