Book Description HTML

We fear pandemics, but what if a pandemic made you immortal? When Dr Donna Rigden loses the most important person in her life, she resigns - big mistake. Donna is now on a hit list. While she works on a secret project she's murdered. In the year 7141, the Earth will be destroyed by an apocalyptic collision with a rogue planetoid. Sir Richard has a plan, though. A key element is to manipulate the mechanisms of life and greatly extend the human lifespan. If you were to become immortal would you feel more inclined to worry about an event so far in the future? 'Immortality Gene' is the first book in the 'A Vested Interest' series. It's based on advanced technology, currently under development. 'Immortality Gene' covers the development of a genetically engineered virus. Along the way the series deals with corporate jealousy at its highest levels, greed, spite, vengeance, nanotechnology, medicine, murder, mystery, love and betrayal, and, of course, the very essence of life itself.

Sadly, a good concept with poor execution - not to mention the 7 (so far) sequels. My lesson in buying a series based of a first book. Science fiction takes a distant fourth to soap opera, ridiculous changes in characters' behavoirs, sex and "fate" (which seems to keep changing). Supposedly up to 1.5 million words that should be at most a fifth of that.

I agree with Glenda, too much sex which doesn't add anything to the action. But also too much reliance on dialogue - this isn't a stage production. Unclear what motivates any of the characters. Utter boredom from a smashed leg is the only reason I got past chapter 20. Oversll, good idea poor execution.


Glenda Jaquez Dykstra

I think, personally, it would read better and faster if the focus wasn't on the sex so much. The description needs to be changed as I am in the upper 100's of the read and she still hasn't died. Drop a lot of the innuendo, sex scenes, and you would have a great read! The story line is intriguing and if I can get rid of the other stuff, get more information on the relationship with 'Jared' to start, it would be a great read!!!!!
