This is a very interesting concept. The characters are very well developed and will keep you interested in the story. Although I ended up detesting the parents, I think The Secondary would make a good movie or TV program.

This novel pulls the reader right in questioning whether the idea of a Secondary could really happen ... medical ethics with a twist of suspense and in-depth character development... quite an impressive novel ... a compelling read to the very end ...Bravo !

The Secondary has a unique, refreshing concept, It contains a rich dialogue that kept me moving from chapter to chapter wondering what would happen next. It was tied together nicely at the end.

I found the novel, The Secondary, by Farrell Kane was very entertaining with an unusual twist  to the story. I liked the characterization. We're hoping for a sequel. George Reinhart

What makes a book really great is a unique and interesting plot, interesting characters, and a well-written story. If the book has a few surprises thrown in makes it even better. This book has all these qualities and maybe more. It was hard to put down and I did not want it to end. I recommend this book very highly.

The Secondary is engrossing and well told---hard to put down. It could easily be seen as foretelling the future, given the improvements made each year in scientific research The story would be a wonderful TV series.

Highly original and clever story - a "page turner" with interesting twists and turns. I couldn't wait to turn the next page or start a new chapter.
