I went back and looked at a couple of my previous Robin Cook reviews I could pretty much repeat what I said verbatim I suppose in the interest of keeping those following my reviews, I should spice it up a bit Nothing spicier than BULLET POINTS Cheesy, not the best writing, but very entertaining I usually find myself groaning at the cheesy silliness of a Cook novel But, I also find myself devouring it Maybe because I love cheese Mmmmmm, cheese one sec, gotta hit the fridge Very d I went back and looked at a couple of my previous Robin Cook reviews I could pretty much repeat what I said verbatim I suppose in the interest of keeping those following my reviews, I should spice it up a bit Nothing spicier than BULLET POINTS Cheesy, not the best writing, but very entertaining I usually find myself groaning at the cheesy silliness of a Cook novel But, I also find myself devouring it Maybe because I love cheese Mmmmmm, cheese one sec, gotta hit the fridge Very dated some books stand the test of time With Cook, you can always tell exactly when it was written Social attitudes, character descriptions, words, phraseology, etc Look at the publication year and you will know exactly what to expect Angry characters I always feel like Cook s characters are very high strung and involved in very intense discussions I find myself looking at the page and saying, DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG CHILL OUT, YO HIPAA I work in healthcare HIPAA is the law that basically is supposed to keep all medical information private and secure In Cook novels, medical info is shared willy nilly However, it was a different time Maybe Robin Cook s novels are responsible for the law Basically, if you like medical thrillers, want a few hours of entertainment, love some cheesiness, and don t mind books that are not the finest literature ever, Robin Cook is worth a try Mutation is the most creepy and frightful story I ve read by Cook I read it many years ago, and of course certain parts of it are outdated by now, but it s definitely one of my favorites. This book was a mess BYE This book was a mess BYE Somehow she would have to face this last demon child, and with Joe s help, end forever the nightmare that her husband had begun These were the words of Marsha Frank, thinking of the experiment that her husband, Frank, had done at his laboratory, that had caused her son, along with several other children to become geniuses Unfortunately, this also

child, and with Joe s help, end forever the nightmare that her husband had begun These were the words of Marsha Frank, thinking of the experiment that her husband, Frank, had done at his laboratory, that had caused her son, along with several other children to become geniuses Unfortunately, this also caused them to become so smart that the children were able to realize how much they could accomplish, and they would take out anybody who tried to get in their way Mutation is the story of what happens to the Franks when they bring home their new baby, whom they call VJ, after his father Victor Sr., and the events that happen during the next few years After the death of the Frank s first child, David, and their maid, the Frank s life seems to settle down for a time, until many seemingly unconnected events begin occurring Robin Cook s Mutation captivated me with its realism and also scared me as I thought about how, with all the advancements in technology, this story could actually happen.In Mutation, the characters are easily one of the best parts of the book Each character has their own unique personality, and the way they interact with each other is extremely believable VJ has all of the air of an evil genius around him, his father acts like the proud father that every father would act like if his son was a genius, and his mother is uncomfortable with certain aspects of VJ s behavior, just the way he acts and how he seems to have no emotion All of these aspects give the reader clues often times to the way the story may be going or what may happen next The way the author has the reader watching the parents as they find outabout VJ, and the different ways they react to what they discover, gives the book an air of mystery I found myself not liking VJ and being a little creeped out by him and his plans for science An author who can actually elicit emotional responses from the reader shows a good author, in my opinion.A theme from this book that I interpreted was that, even though we may have the ability to alter and modify the human body to how we think it should be, should we This issue has affected the lawmaking system many times and this book shows how doing this could affect the humanity of a person This book could very well come true, and unlike the sci fi stories people read and then go and report seeing aliens in their backyard, the situation in Mutation could very well happen It really makes the reader think, and some people may disagree with me but I think that some of the best books that I ve ever read have made me think other than the time that I ve been reading the book.In conclusion, if you like a well written book that will make you think or if you are a biology nerd like me who wants to read an entertaining book, Mutation is a good choice This book will keep the reader interested and entertained throughout the book As the saying goes, This will keep the midnight oil burning , or electricity or whatever you may use to make light to read by If Mutation is put on your to read list, I doubt that you will be disappointed by it.338 pages This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers

kind of brushed it off like it was a secondary problem to what was at hand at the moment It was never brought up again from Marsha s view point anyway I thought it to be an abnormal reaction from a
