I was fascinated with the genetic research details in this medical mystery. Also the complex computer environment was compelling. The description was great and most of the characters seemed to have some depth. Very clever plot twists. It has some action and 1 very unneeded sex scene that came out of nowhere.

Preston and Child never cease to amaze me. I think the book had a wonderful plot line to follow all the way through it. Never a dull momement. It also made you think if this could really be possible. I don't miss a book by these authors!

I fell in love with these authors by reading the Pendergast novels. After exhausting those, I started with their other titles. For some reason, this book just didn't jump out and grab me until recently. It was AWESOME! After reading so many "far-fetched" plot-lines regarding creatures and such, this one was much more real and made you think about the possibility of it really happening. I highly recommend this book and all the others. Excellent!

I have read a number of books by these tag-team writers and have enjoyed all of them. This is another that I can recommend to anyone who is a fan of the medical thriller. The plot is straightforward: discover a cure for influenza which involves altering our DNA. Of course, you have your ego-maniac who wants to profit from the discovery and your hero who wants to help humanity. All-in-all,a great read for a rainy day.

Solid, entertaining story. I thought it could have continued in a certain direction more than it did. I think the result could have been quite good, bordering on a classic. Nevertheless, it was what I've come to expect from Preston and Child - Smart, entertaining stories with good characters. My only issue continues to be the borderline omniscience that some of the characters have. I understand things need to be explained, but I don't think the characters need to necessarily understand everything. If they do, then I think more characters are needed to plausibly know all that is known by even a single character.

This action-packed novel takes readers on a ride not to be forgotten anytime soon. A SINGLE virus could wipe out the entire human race and that's a fact most of us would rather not contemplate. MOUNT DRAGON is a "Genie Bottle", full of thrills, suspense and a dose of reality. Once you open the cover and read the first chapter, you're hooked. There is no "putting the Genie back in this bottle." IMHO Definitely Recommend!

I was expecting a high-tech story about genetics, and it certainly began that way. However, slightly under two-thirds of the way in to the story, it built up and climaxed. Then rather than roll over and go to sleep it (the story) just morphed into what seemed like a random western cowboy tale. Of course at that point, you're already interested and want to finish. But when you do, you feel let down... like you were led on... then just USED.

Last half of the book was a big disappointment. Weak as P&C books go.

Mount dragon is one of the most intriuging books Ive ever read (like most of their books Ive read). Unlike some of his other books this one is filled with scientific realism yet is a fictional book. It will most likely keep you up all night if you like things such as computer hacking, sientific tampering with deadly diseases, or if you just like a good read.

Seems like I've read a dozen virus books lately and yet Mount Dragon was still fresh. Good characters that you really care about. Preston and Child are must-reads with my wife and me.

An amazing display of imagination yet still within the realities of today's possibilities. A book that makes you look for every opportunity to continue reading it.
