Editorial Reviews

Christopher Lehmann-Haupt
What the devil is going on here?....What's going on here is the very cleverly plotted new medical thriller by Robin Cook....Unfortunately, toward the end, when Dr. Cook takes the action of his thriller outside of the hospital, he loses control of the story completely. On top of that, the solution to what's going on in ''Brain'' turns out to be a lesson on the threat of certain medical researchers with insufficient respect for humanity. And insult added to injury: we have to endure a postscript lecture arguing that the threat is real. Still, none of this is so bad that it wipes out the fun of the first two-thirds of the story. Maybe the thing to do with ''Brain'' is to read the first 200 pages, then make up your own ending. -- New York Times
