An exciting and interesting medical thriller dealing with xenotransplantation - transplanting pig organs into humans. Very good read!

A medical thriller and interesting read.

As someone who does not read many medical thriller type books I was not sure I would enjoy this one. But the story was interesting and held my attention through-out. There were a few times I was confused by the many characters and how they intertwines, but in the end everything made sense.

Overall an enjoyable read, but certainly not happy-go-lucky.

I found this to be very difficult to read. I'm guessing the author is (or was) a doctor as it is incredibly technical and most of the time, I didn't have a clue what they were talking about. There seems to be a huge conspiracy/coverup over clinical trials on this pig retrovirus thing (not exactly sure what the heck this is but seems to be the major stumbling block to using pig organs in humans.

If you can get past all the technical speak (I just started skimming it cause it just made no sense to me at all), the life and death fight between Scott, Emery and Stone is rather interesting. This is a 439 page story that could have been told in about 300 and been enjoyable. Not really an author I'd bore myself with twice. Once is most definitely enough.
