LJ Book Bingo - Book 13

TITLE: The Immortalists
AUTHOR: Kyle Mills
DATE FINISHED: March 25
BLURB: Dr. Richard Draman is trying desperately to discover a cure for a disease that causes children to age at a wildly accelerated rate—a rare genetic condition that is killing his own daughter. When the husband of a colleague quietly gives him a copy of the classified work she was doing before her mysterious suicide, Draman finally sees a glimmer of hope. The conclusions are stunning, with the potential to not only turn the field of biology on its head, but reshape the world. Soon, though, he finds himself on the run, relentlessly pursued by a seemingly omnipotent group of men who will do whatever it takes to silence him.

REVIEW: I don't understand the good reviews this book got. The plot seemed like it had potential, but it very quickly got ridiculous with increasingly annoying characters. The prose is overly simplistic, and every so-called twist is contrived and silly. The only reason I bothered to finish it was because each chapter was only a couple pages long. It was an insanely fast read. And at least I know not to read anything else of his.

SQUARE: Mystery/Crime/Thriller/True Crime
