An interesting concept. I read this back before I had really begun to develop my distrust of agri-corporations and chemical/biological tinkering with life in general, so it's hard for me to give a straight review. It does make one think about today's "medical" industry, though.

This is an awesome fast-pasted story. It is narrated very well and is 6 hours long, 5 CD set. I listened it in the evening two nights in a row just to find out what happened next. Easy to visualize the story, characters, and keeps your interest very well.
