READ BOOK ☾ Seizure ♡

Normally I love Robin Cook novels but I just couldn t get into it this time Weirdly, the thing that annoyed me most was the fact that the dialogue was written like a narrative and sounded nothing like what an average conversation would sound like And the ending seemed underwhelming and rushed, the opposite of how a good novel should end. Typical Robin Cook book combining medical technology, human greed, and ego Lots of unbelievable connections between politics, organized crime, the Catholic church and cutting edge and stem cell research A good distraction during commute into town.

DNF at 73% General Overview This book is about two doctors who have developed a way of curing cell and genetic diseases by cell differentiation and therapeutic cloning But there are political hurdles in the way and this book is an attempt to overcome those hurdles and save their company I am not gonna lie This book started out fine thus the two stars but the and the plot thickens never really was there for me. I didn t feel like the story was worth a 400 pager. I mean the plot wasn t something captivating or thrilling I have only read one other book by Robin Cook, that is Critical, this book had me on the edge of my seat and had my attention throughout So I went into Seizure with high expectations The writing was a bunch of big words thrown together in a fancy way. You enjoy reading this book in the beginning, drawn in by the medical theories and big words that Cook uses But then about a quarter of a way through you realize the words are just a beautiful disguise for a completely mehhh plot I had major issues with the characters and how they were written. I hated Daniel, not going to hide that fact I hated Stephanie too, for sticking with this troll I mean what kind of a naive person was she Couldn t she see that Daniel was a self centered bastard Something else that was totally unnecessary were their fights I got so tired by their fights that I wanted to to shout at them to stop bickering and get on with the story Okay, I admit I did that a couple of times I try not to rate DNF ed books, because I want to go back into them with a fresh and open mind another time But no, nobody is convincing me to finish this Even though I have less than 30% to finish I AM DONE unabridged audiobook read by George Guidall Dr Daniel Lowell has discovered a new stem cell procedure to cure many currently terminal diseases Senator Ashley Butler publicly opposes all such research but secretly offers to become Lowell s guinea pig to cure his Parkinson s Disease before his illness is discovered by the public The rest of the book is a tangle of intrigue involving the mafia, the Catholic Church, the Shroud of Turin, organ harvesting, and US politics It s a great set up, read by a truly talented voice actor, but about halfway through I realized that horrible truth there s no way it could end satisfyingly And it doesn t Most of the issues raised are never resolved, and the so called climax is very, well, anti climatic I could deal with it if it was just the social, ethical, and political questions that were left open ended, but even much of the plot just sort of fizzles out I ve enjoyed the other books I ve read by Robin Cook, but this one felt like it bit off than it could chew. Zero stars Don t waste your time What do these three things have in common shroud of Turin, stem cell research, and the mob Answer NOTHING Overly difficult technical writing that only doctors would understand unlikable characters unrealistic storyline detailed descriptions of events that have no relevance whatsoever to the storyline horrible book Come on, Mr Cook Do we really need to read two pages about a character s justification in choice of shampoo while in a hotel shower where the water is too cold Cook wanted to make a Da Vinci Code style novel, and failed miserably.It s definitely a page turner you want to keep turning the pages in hopes that the book will get better, but it never does Check out his earlier books if you want GOOD medical thrillers. I think this is the worst Robin Cook book I ve read so far I have always enjoyed his thrillers but Seizure is definitely one from an off day The story was all to predictable and character development was minimal The ending was very anticlimactic and the story ends with one of the characters actually defining what the story is about You ll know what I mean if you make it to the end of this book It s definitely not one in the worst books ever written category, but not a thrilling thriller either. 4 estrellitas.Primer Libro de este autor que he le do y me ha encantado Qu trama y cu ntas cosas que nosotros desconocemos de los secretos de la manipulaci n que existe en la medicina obvio, al final del libro, el autor aclara qu cosas de la trama son ficticias y cuales no Est muy bien narrado para los que desconocemos las Ciencias M dicas, es entretenido y muy f cil de leer Los cap tulos no son tan extensos y Robin Cook nos lleva a conocer distintos ambientes mezclando la Ciencia la tica actual del experimento humano y, si el tipo de investigaci n descrita en la historia debe ser prohibida o no con la pol tica un senador que hace abuso de su poder con tal de vencer el Parkinson y la religi n, en ste caso, el Sudario de Turin Las discusiones sobre la S bana Santa, que se demostr hace muchos a os como un fraude el autor hasta nos sugiere un libro para leer sobre ste asunto , me dejaron llena de intriga El final me dejo con la boca abierta porque no me lo esperaba Recomiendo la lectura de ste libro cargado de acci n.
