L The Host which I didn t actually enjoyTo save the world a group of six who ave not been infected will need to figure out exactly what the alien virus is and Crush (Awkward, how to stop itSounds like a bad TV movie right The beginning was fine but as the novel wore on it was difficult to get through it The characters are never fully developed they are like caricatures It was difficult to relate to any of them They weren t very likableThe book contains scientific geek speak that is mostly meant either to make the author look smart or to make the reader think there is something terrible important going on that a layman can t comprehend I don t expect science fiction to be completely feasible but I do expect a clever plot dynamic characters and a compelling plot For a bargain book I guess I liked it butad I paid full price umm not so much Disappointing Robin Cook I expected They are microscopic and turn umans into smiling easy going save the planet ecologists less worried about greed and wealth than ealth and survival So may I ask what is wrong with this Why try to exterminate them I wondered this all the way through the bookGotta be the first time I rooted for the invadersRobin er MR COOK since we are no longer on such good terms writes in the preface The Dragon in the Clock Box he wrote this on spec for a television miniseries I am glad I read that This allowed me to expect less than usualI used to likeis novels They were fun airplanebeach reads Then My Amazing Dinosaur (Tib Tumtum, he became a factory like Clive Cussler and so many others cranking them out two or three a year probably written by child workers in UzbekistanI picked this book up at my regular flea market guy The book offered me exactly what I put into it 50 worthI missed the miniseries if it was ever made If so it was probably awful or it wouldave been shoved off onto the SyFy channel which is the burying ground for cheesy television moviesIn fairness I completed the book because I wanted to see if my The Nazi Revolution hero aliens would finally win and conuer this dirty planet Just once I didn t want a singular loneuman working in a cabin in the woods to buck all odds and save the planet while everyone else gets seduced into the alien lifestyle Did I mention the alienhumans sort of mutate into lizards Don t worry I didn t give anything away and I am uite down with this Mutate away baby Not too believable but readable I will give it 2 star 2020 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge A medical thrillerI was not looking forward to this prompt for what I think are obvious reasons those reading in the future check the date those reading 40 years from now ask your parents But I really liked this book I aven t read a thriller in a while so I was uite on the edge of my seat Kind of like "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers Meets I " of the Body Snatchers meets I Legend Although Robin Cook as written many books this is the first I ave ever readThe cover says it was made into a TV movie and somehow I missed the movie as well but after reading the book I would like to see the movieA meteor falls to the earth landing in a plume of dust and debris This smooth black disk like meteor suddenly extends an arm and collects samples of the earth to verify that it as indeed landed on the right planet Once this is confirmed the plan is put into actionAs an unsuspecting Beau spots an unusual small round black disk and picks it up to further inspect it Wylde Bears (Wylde Bears, he suddenly drops it and proclaims it stungim Within ours a virus is turned loose one the inhabitants of eartha virus that is destined to change earth life as we know itI liked this book although there were enough medicaltechnical terms to irratate me but also convince me that Robin Cook know medicine enough to make the story plausible Storyline aside I can t stand the
way Robin Cook writes His sentence structure is painfully clunky e Robin Cook writes His sentence structure is painfully clunky Arise he to omit contractions in dialog in the weirdest places ande actually uses exclamation points in narrative I also felt that the storytelling was immature not what I expected from such a prolific author And onestlythe end wrapped up a little too uickly and neatly for me Not a fan. Astrar por todo o universoMas fica um frupo de resistentes alguns dos uais são cientistas ue não tocaram na pedra e por isso estão imunes aos seus efeitos ue num laboratório clandestino conseguem inventar o antídoto para os efeitos desta alteração de personalidade voltando assim tudo à normalida. Wow so much stupidity in this book "I Haven T Read Any Other Robin " haven t read any other Robin books and I think this is going to be the first and the last unless someone can somehow convince me that one of The Book Thief his other books is much much better So much ridiculousness Such as a senior in college preparing to go to med school whoas worked at a Talk to Me hospital for 3 years on being told to look for an infectious disease asks What do you mean infectious Let that uestion sink in A college student premed whoas worked for YEARS IN A HOSPITAL HAS TO ASK WHAT INFECTIOUS in a Silver Mortal (The Gracen Chronicles, hospitalas to ask what infectious The answer is Capable of being spread from person to personAnd when you put this conversation in context of what is Educating for the New World Order happening in the book at the Iave not read anything by Robin Cook before and I can Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock honestly say that I will likely never read anything byim in the future There is so much I would love to say about this book over a glass of whiskey if we The Character Of An Upright Man had the time but alas we do not Instead I ll try to be succinct and not revel in the utter misuse of my time spent in reading this bookFirst I found this book on the staff room table at work I picked it up because the ideas it purports to explore environmentalism extraterrestrial viruses the nature of personality theuman condition the very nature of reality are right up my alley This is a book I could get into I thought I thought wrong these ideas are given such short treatment that they end up being window dressing only Nothing ever develops there are no deep discussions about any of this There is no to uote Sporkful s Dan Pashman Tooth sinkabiltySecond the list of best sellers and previously published works was impressive enough that I thought this might be a worthy read The book spine was even stamped with 1 New York Times Best Selling Author I Mr. Malcolms List hazard a guess that it wasn t for this book Again I thought wrong Withoutaving known something of the author that GURPS Conspiracy X he is a doctor thate Just One Golden Kiss has published numerous works I wouldave assumed this was just yet another self published unedited wanna be author out for an ego joyride The technical flaws in The Tyranny of Guilt his writing be it word choice sentence structure plot and character development are too numerous to begin to discuss Finally and perhaps a bit pedantically I was continually incensed that every time a character developed a fever they were offered an aspirin or discussion of aspirin occurred At one point I felt I ought to count up the number of aspirin comments just toave it on Phantom Encounters hand for the review Look the book deals with a virus one of which symptoms of infection is fever Just imagineow many times fever and aspirin appeared in the book Every time someone mentioned fever aspirin was mentioned shortly thereafter This book was 1997 when this book was published I ve been a trauma nurse since 2006 The author is a doctor
Much in medicine changed between 1997 and 2006 I m sure but I m also damn in medicine changed between 1997 and 2006 I m sure but I m also damn that no one was giving aspirin for fevers as a rule in 1997 In all my years as a nurse I Eat Your Way Through the USA have not once read never given aspirin for a fever We give acetaminophen Aspirin is saved for cardiac emergencies or chronic blood thinning uses The author is a doctor and should know thisThat said if inis world My Dirty Janitor Book 4 he wants to use aspirin for fever great But you don tave to tell me every single time someone Stories from Spain / Historias de España has a fever that someone else is reaching for the aspirin Every single time There is so much that could be said about this book the wooden characters the awkward interactions theamfisted attempt to make Cassy a love interest desirable etc Just so much bad with this bookHe jumped around in various peoples Spanish-American Short Stories / Cuentos hispanoamericanos heads which would be fine if anyone ANYONEad a thought deeper than a puddle but we get only the most superficial treatment of these characters There is nothing thereThe author does geek out a little on virology and that s fine if tiresome because of the generally poor writing but we never get into the meat of the what and why Even the ending is terribleRemember the ending of Revenge of the Sith when Anakin puts on Vader s suit and embarrasses Broken Bear himself and ruins everything about bei.

THERE IS A DARN INTERESTING UESTION AND THERE AREis a darn interesting uestion And there are uestions along that line this book promised to address and did nothing I ve rarely read something from a professional that abused a reader soI guess I ended up failing in my attempt to be succinct and not reveling in the absurdity of this book Apologies A weak offering by Cook who never bothers to really develop characters anyway this implausible tale moves pretty fast and is incredibly predictable Moreover the ending which I will not reveal is perhaps MORE stupid than the amusingcomedic defeat of the aliens in Evolution the movie with Duchovny and that guy from the 7 up commercials whassisname Orlando Jones where they use Selsun Blue to knock out the blubbery alien mass At least in Evolution the ending is plausible I won t spoil the victory strategy in Invasion for any potential readers but I can guarantee one reads it and thinks not only is this stupid it isn t even logically consistentOn an editor s note the freuent typos made me want to get out a red pen and fix things including the changed spelling of some characters names and inconsistent use of uotation marks That I can t blame on Cook Well it s been a long time since I ve read Robin Cook s books I used to devour these types of books many years ago but now the appeal seems to Paint the Wind have gone This is not to say that this is a bad book it s not it is actually a uick read and entertaining It just lacks something for me What I did like about this book was the originality of the aliens These guys were microscopic which is a new one for me I also liked the group of people who combined their efforts to thwart the alien invasion This is where the book picks up a little bit too much medical jargon but again that s OK The book did read like a made for television book The chaptersad that episodic feel to them But that s not a bad thing it makes this book a perfect summer read for the beach pool or cabin It s easy to put down and pick up again I picked up this book because it was a bargain and Robin Cook Wayne has a reputation as a successful writer This is not a typical Robin Cook medical thriller though This is Cook s foray into science fiction There is still a bit of medical thriller in it but the invasion of course is alien lifeThe book begins in a college town with a power surge that wipes out TVs radios and VCR s Remember this was written in 1997 This literally made me think of The Twilight Zone cliche I couldear the theme music playing in my The Perfect Resume headThen an abundance of black discs start showing up The black discs don t seem like actual rocks or even man made items because they were sentere to infect The Centurion Code humans with an alien virus Beau Stark one of the main characters claims to be stung by the object Later that daye becomes deathly ill with a violent flu like virus The doctors can t cure Antropologia da Criança him yet they cannot pinpoint anything wrong either Hours latere is not only cured but full of energy and a different personalityIn fairly short order the entire earth is being dominated by an alien life form who of all things care about the environment People can communicate without speaking due to a collective consciousness they smile all the time and the life forms Air Terisak Membelah Batu have typical alien characteristics such as glowing eyes mind control superuman strength and eventually blue lizard like skin They are also building a space station preparing for the rest of the aliens to arrive While I was reading I couldn t elp but think of Stephanie Meyer s nove.
