Overview

Nano by Robin Cook

A lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology institute in the foothills of the Rockies, Nano is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nanorobots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria.

But when Pia Grazdani takes a job there, she’s shocked by the secretive corporate culture. She’s warned by her boss not to investigate the other work being done at the gigantic facility, nor to ask questions about the source of the seemingly endless capital that funds the institute’s research. And when Pia encounters a fellow employee on a corporate jogging path suffering the effects of a seizure, she soon realizes she may have literally stumbled upon Nano’s human guinea pigs. Is the tech giant on the cusp of one of the biggest medical discoveries of the twenty-first century—a treatment option for millions—or have they already sold out to the highest bidder?

Robin Cook fans will enjoy the read and the education into the what's new and potentially troublesome in medicine field. However, I think the book should have been labeled "Part 1" because unless there's a sequel on the way, the ending left most of the main characters in limbo. Or at the very least in an unsatisfying position.

I am a die hard Robin Cook fan and have read every Robin Cook book published. I enjoyed reading "NANO " until the end..There is no ending it leaves you hanging.. I assume there will be follow up book letting the readers know what really happen to Pia . I am very disappointed in the ending

This book kept me reading and Robin Cook is a great author, the only thing I wish I knew when I bought the book and got to the last Chapter the author keeps you hanging to find out what happened to the star of the book. Now I have to wait till the next book is published to see how it ends.

The plot was slow, information repeated chaprter after chapter. The ending was kindergartenish.

This is a great book. The technology is very interesting and thought provocing. I don't know why many reviewers whined about the ending, it was perfect about Pia. Anything else would have been same old, same old. Who knows, we may see her again. If not, its much more realistic than a last minute rescue.

The book was interesting but far too technical to following everything. Basically about robots that could be placed into blood streams and they would eat the virus, bacteria, infection, etc. I found myself skipping many paragraphs of technical terms. You can skip this one.

If you are a RC fan you will enjoy most of this book.  The ending , or lack of ending, was very disappointing. I just started reading "Cell" and the main character from "Nano" is mentioned but not much else.  I can only  hope I will learn a little more as I read on......

I liked the twists and turns even up to the end. It really picked-up speed and you want to stay with it to the end. SPOILER ALEART I'm disappointed with what happened to the main character Pia. Are we to assume her black fate and that she's lost forever in the Pipeline? Granted she got herself into a really big mess but I was hoping for the Good Guy/Gad Guy calvary to finally ride in and rescue her. And that maybe this experience would finally soften her, finally gain confidence with George, and perhaps heal old wounds with her father. But on the flip side Robin Cook may be reminding us that sometimes the heroine is not rescued and ultimately (sadly) becomes her own victim.

I had heard this book was not very good but I thought is was just fine so I have given it a good rating. I'll be looking forward to his next book.

Once readers get to chapter 13 the storyline takes off. First you must read through the ego tripping description of Zachary Berman's thoughts that he is so great, plus all the males "drooling" over Pia Grazdani (such a time consuming waste, in my opinion). Here's a great quote by Pia Grazdani about Zachary Berman: "... he was a dangerous snake in the grass." LOL! You will learn many important facts from this storyline and the central characters. If you enjoy reading about paranoid people with outlandish-sounding conspiracy theories plus the sinister, this novel is sure to intrigue you.

Absurd ending. If you like to know what happens to the main character in a story,save your time and money. Second book I have suffered through with the totally unlikable Pia to have a non ending.

How many times can Cook jump the shark and expect his readers to still be there? Start with a heroine thats unlovable but beautiful (remind of this every other page), throw in some shallow stereotypes, bury us with techno-jargon, and then tease us with off-stage sexual tension... very unsatisfying, to say the least. Predictable and a chore to read; I wouldn't have finished it if it wasn't a gift. Speaking of finishes, if the rest of the book was like the last 2 chapters, at least it would have moved along with some drive to it. The worst of it, however, was saved for the last page; I thought I was reading a serial installment. I kept thinking, "This can't be all there is!". An obvious ploy to read the next(?) book, but why?

Terrible ending. Would like to know what happened to the main characters. Hope Cook doesn't die before he writes a sequel.

Very unsatisfying read. No closure at end. Heroine left in limbo. Do not recommend.

Interesting read up until the non-ending. What happened to the main character? Perhaps we'll see her again, but I won't know because this is the last Cook novel I'm buying.
