Overview

Hybrids by Whitley Strieber, David Colacci

They look like us, but they are faster, stronger, and fear nothing. They are also hell-bent on destroying us….

In Whitley Strieber's latest spellbinding thriller, Dr. Thomas Turner must navigate an unsettling alliance between extraterrestrial scientists and the United States government to create an alien-human hybrid with alien brilliance, superhuman strength…and an alien's cold, cold heart. After the government orders him to destroy his demonic handiwork, Dr. Turner discovers that the hybrids are smarter than all of us and that they intend to destroy mankind.

The only one capable of defeating these fierce reptilian creatures is Dr. Turner's first hybrid creation, respected U.S. soldier Mark Bryan. But Bryan must confront agonizing truths about the woman he loves and his own disputed loyalties before he can defend humanity's right to exist.

This book to me is OK. Story was good, kinda got weird, and I had to re-read a couple of times cause it would jump to something else and kinda loose ya.

I have enjoyed so many of Whitley's books in the past. He is couragous and intelligent - so i was very excited about reading Hybrid. For me, the blood, gore and graphic descriptions made it impossible to continue reading. Admittedly my tolerance for graphic horror is low, it just shuts down my connection to a most likely intreguing story. Sorry Whitley, i really wanted to 'get' what you were saying.

I loved the book for the action. The utter chaos and graphic depictions in the book are rather hard to swallow at times so it might not be for the feint of heart. It’s a typical story plot where you have elements of aliens and the government going hand in hand. So, don’t expect anything new or different. I’d have to say there’s two memorable moments that got to me in this book: San Francisco gone absolute amok, and the part with the hybrids and that village. The latter creeped me out. I’d have to give the author major props for writing descriptive settings that make the hair on the back of your neck rise. Besides the action, well, writing wise it doesn’t do much, and sometimes when you think you’re on a roll to something in the plot, it stops abruptly and the rhythm of the book is all gone. It may not make a difference to some, but it makes the reading haphazard and uneven. Characters in the story aren’t that much to be fully attached to, and really they’re just there for the plot. The little romance going on between the two main characters was a bit leaning towards the cheesy side, the book could have done without that. Don’t expect too much from this book. To me, it was just a decent quick read (sort of like the Hollywood movies you watch just for the special effects, not for the storyline) the creepy factor makes it a good read otherwise, you could give it a pass if it’s not your thing.

In an underground top secret laboratory in New Mexico, years of research by Dr. Thomas Turner and aliens from space proved futile; the visitors finally left. Turner with other human scientists continued the effort until a breakthrough occurred. The team using alien developed gene-splicing technology and theory has created biomechanical hybrids. However, Turner and the researchers make a major error as this new species as a machine has no human rights. However, their human side demands these inalienable rights, which are denied them. Thus the new species plans to sit atop the food chain. The scientists fail to prevent the takeover of the lab and soon Homo sapiens are in peril. When the. President learns what has happens, he fumes at his helplessness. Only Mark and Gina, who were the Adam and Eve of the lab, but unaware of their origins, can prevent a pandemic disaster, but those who must reveal the truth to the pair wonder whose side they will be on. Hybrids is a cautionary tale that feels somewhat flat because the key players including the title characters never come across as more than caricatures from a B movie. The story line is exciting from start to finish with the loyalty of Adam and Eve uncertain for much of the plot. However, the cast, especially the lab rats, Turner and the government officials never seem fully developed. Harriet Klausner
