The Darwin Variant Reviews
There were times when I wondered where this was going. What starts out as a comet heading to Earth turns into a race to find a cure for a infection brought by the comet. The story line is very complex. The list of characters is very diverse and the story often changes points of view using all in the plot line. The world building and backstory are very well done.

I really loved this book. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I can really see this being turned into a series on tv. I would definitely be watching.
Amazing story. Could easily explain the current political/societal stupidity, minus the novel's happy ending. So compelling, I might have finished it in a day but for the kindle's need to recharge.

The small one is that the reports being used to tell parts of the story, did not survive very well the move to Kindle format: The des ...more
I couldn't finish this. The plot is a rehash of The Food of the Gods, and the writing is awful.
