The Immortal Gene. Finished 8-14-18, rating 3.5/5, fiction, 319 pages, pub. 2018
From my earlier thoughts…
I’m scheduled to post about The Immortal Gene today for a TLC tour so here I am providing you with half review and half life update.
I’m over half way done with the book and really like it. The story is good, even if the bad guy really sickened me last night when I was reading before bed. It runs along two main storylines, Jake the detective and Jeffery the serial killer. There’s a mysterious shadowy group that has something to do with why Jake was in a coma for two years and why he now appears to be something more than a man. I like the writing and the story and look forward to finishing and telling you more, hopefully next week. (original post)
Okay, I liked this one, but the first half worked a little bit better for me. When I referenced Jake turning into more than a man, well, that went full scale reptile in the second half and it was both interesting and a bit too much for me. I do think it will appeal to many sci-fi readers, especially since the basis is rooting in reality. This is the beginning of a series and I may read the next one to see what happens since there was a lot left unsettled at the end.
