What is the mystery behind the rate of SIDS in infants and the disappearance of male children in the small town of Eastbury, Massachussetts? THE GOD PROJECT, which made its debut in 1982, is a futuristic look at medical technology gone awry. Its characterizations appear straight from contemporary news headlines. This is one of Mr. Saul's most chilling works, if not the most, and I highly reccommend it for anyone who likes technological thrillers or science fiction.

The ending was by far the best of any book I haave ever read, but as the other guy/girl said it had an insane amoint of errors gramitically.

This book goes where even science fiction doesn't dare. SIDS and playing God go hand and hand in this classic John Saul novel... it's one man's belief that he can control/create children who are in essence 'perfect'. But as it always does, there's a catch 22. Just because you create it, doesn't mean you can control it as the story soon proves through it's young main characters. Saul's endings always allow room for the reader's speculation, but this one will leave you wondering about the boy mowing the yard next door or the little girl playing with her dolls down the street.

I read this book for the first time when I was eight, back in 1983. My mother owned a copy and (of course) said I wasn't allowed to read it... We follow two boys, Randy and Jason, through many (could that really happen?) terrifying situations. As with most of Saul's books, it eirily chilling and will have you second guessing your paradigms of real life. If you're looking for a 'can't put it down', 'gave me nightmares for a week', 'read it in a day' thriller....then this story is for you. Buy it! You'll love it!

this book was wonderful. I couldn't put it down. the story started out thrilling and kept me on the edge of my seat up until the last page which almost made me pee my pants it was frightening.

This book was very good. It really makes you think. The things described in this book could really be going on. I believe it's kind of futurific. If you enjoy books that read good from beginning to end, you'll love this book.

Readers note this is from 1982 when computers were fairly new, as was recombinate DNA tech. The scenario has since been beaten to death on all media so the shock experienced by our sleuths may not be as surprising to you as it was to earlier readers. The e publication is riddled with bizarre auto correct eroors (how I miss human proof readers!) such as turning 'back' into 'bade'. Distracting but all too common. An ejoyable, quick read in 'science run amuck'. Not too much science since it is told from the perspective of our sleuths and not of the experimenters.

This book.....well....i dont think i liked it. It's hard to decide. You think this book is going to have this big thing at the end....but almost everybody gets killed (well, all my faves), i couldnt tell what the 'dangerous project' is, and the sweetest lil boys are turned into monster....saul, the beggining was fantastic, but the end needs work

As an average teenager, I'm expected not to enjoy or understand stimulating books such as this one, but I tell you this is the best book I've ever read, and I recommend that you go and pick this book up immediately! NOTE:DON'T READ THE EPILOGUE FIRST! IT RUINS THE WHOLE BOOK!!!!

The story line is very interesting and kept me turning pages, but....there are many, many typo errors in the ebook version. It makes me feel that the book was never proof read for typo errors. In one chapter I found at least 5 major typo errors. It distracts from the books content. I've read at least 6 of John Saul's books and all the ebooks have at least one typo per chapter. I've read the ebookk "War and Peace" and found no typo errors. Without typos I would have given this book 4 stars.
