What would you do if you were offered a chance to cure humanity of the flu? That’s the question facing Dr. Guy Carson. On one hand, he sees a chance to save people from a serious problem, on the other hand, his former mentor is leading a crusade against the changing of the human genome. Carson agrees to work with curing the flu, unfortunately it appears to be more virulent, and fatal than the original source.
The book was a great story. It would have been closer to perfection if it wasn’t for Susana Cabeza de Vaca. This woman had a serious problem with her place in life. She wanted to like Guy so much that she had to find some ethnicity other than Anglo in his background.
The other problem cam in the form of Brent Scopes. He had a problem with anyone questioning his ideas.
My favorite part of the story was the company picnic. That and Mime’s dialogue.
