Mutation: Robin Cook

I had written this review for another website. Republishing it here to keep all my reviews at one place.

It’s a typical Robin Cook book with lot of biotechnology jargon. Its’ about this scientist who mutates the zygote of his own kid for some experiment. What he ends up with is a child with a abnormally high IQ and absolutely zero emotions. His child turns out into a lonely, unemotional kid, totally detached from this world. This book is about this exceptional, abnormal child and his effect on the people around him.

The story is gripping, though predictable. It’s a page turner – one can finish the book in a day. The writing is nothing remarkable. The only factor than can keep the reader interested in the book is the story. The characters are pretty well developed, though there a few loopholes.

If you are looking for a quick, science thriller, then pick up this book. If you have had enough of science jargons, then move on to the next shelf.
