This is a true "heavy reading" book not only because of the subject matter but also because at over 700 pages its heavy. The premise is good and reminded me of a cross between Stephen King's "The Stand" and any government experiment gone wrong senario book. I was only able to get to page 447 before I had to stop. The story began to bog down and as I skimmed the remainder was disappointed to realize it is a continuation book and I will have to read the next book "The Twelve" to have it concluded. I like serials that can be read as a stand alone.
