It's a good book but every time you start to get involved with it, it jumps to a new location. I found it a very frustrating read.

Chromosome 6 is a fascinating romp through the ethics of genetic engineering. Apes genetically altered to suit human organ transplants develop fascinating side-effects... a mind-bending concept and an eye-opener to the ethics of genetic engineering. Cook uses the science fiction aspect as a stage for a mystery-style plot involving underground business and the New York mafia. Those readers looking for more science than story may be disappointed... the genetic mutation of the apes is developed somewhat less than the mafia interest and the search for the underground genetics company. Otherwise, a captivating and thought-provoking novel.

While once again writing on the cutting edge of technology, Cook misses the mark this time. The novel evokes memories of Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta, but Cornwell shows much better execution. It seemed as though Cook had material left over from other novels and just wanted the pay-check. A shame, considering previous novels.

This was a fast paced book and extremely enjoyable. The plot and characters were terrific. The only bad part was the ending. Left way too many lose ends. Never found out what happened to the main characters.

Along with the characters the reader is able to live through the many challenges involved with a morgue enviroment. It's very well paced and it gives you a good thrill as it builds and develops, I enjoyed it very much.

In this fast-paced medical thriller, Cook develops two parallel and intersecting plots about scientists in Equatorial Guinea who are frantically exploring the ethics of genetic engineering, and medical examiners in New York who are stubbornly (and against all odds) determining the cause of death of a mysterious mobster-corpse. I found Cook¿s characters well-developed, his plot original, and his narrative both humorous and suspenseful. Although I am generally not a fan of authors who reuse characters (how often can once-in-a-lifetime adventures happen to one medical examiner?), I loved this book and recommend it to any fan of medical suspense. So far, this is my favorite Robin Cook book.

Alirght.....so, you feel more comfortable identifying as a guy, cool. You like guys still, cool. You call this being h<_>omosexual? If you originally began as a girl......and like guys.....that's normal, so why is it g<_>ay if you like dudes? You still have feminine qualities in your story so.....makes sense you would identify as a guy, but still be straight because of the feminine body and qualities you still have. Oh well, l hate trying to logic this out.
