Grandísimo retelling de Frankenstein. Lo mejor sin duda los personajes, Victor, un científico loco que lleva la ciencia al extremo sin pensar en las consecuencias hasta que es demasiado tarde, VJ, un niño prodigio manipulado genéticamente, capaz de mentir, asesinar, traficar con drogas, e incluso secuestrar a su propia madre entre otras cosas con tal de llevar a cabo sus propósitos, por su frialdad e inteligencia, se ha convertido en uno de mis villanos favoritos de todos los tiempos, y por último está Marsha, la única que intenta poner un poco de cordura en todo esto.
En cuanto al desarrollo de la historia es bastante bueno ver como poco a poco se va descubriendo todo, lo único es que tiene un ritmo un tanto pausado, pero en ningún momento se pierde el interés por la historia, porque todo sucede de una forma muy interesante y creíble, a pesar de ser un libro de ciencia ficción.
El estilo del autor es correcto, directo, sin florituras, sin monólogos filosóficos y existenciales ni grandes descripciones, nada que me desagrade, pero sin arriesgar absolutamente nada, nada que haga que esté como loco por leer más libros de este autor, con lo cual no quiero decir que sea malo.
A pesar de eso que es algo muy personal, recomiendo este libro a todos los fans de frankenstein y de la ciencia ficción, o si os interesa la medicina, o la biología molecular porque toca todos eso temas de una forma muy interesante, planteando cosas que tal vez hoy en día no sea tan descabellado que lleguen a suceder.
Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: Not to be confused with British novelist Robin Cook a pseudonym of Robert William Arthur Cook.
Dr. Robin Cook (born May 4, 1940 in New York City, New York) is an American doctor / novelist who writes about medicine and topics affecting public health.
He is best known for being the author who combined medical writing with the thriller genre of writing. Several of his books have been bestsellers on the "New York Times" Bestseller List. Several of his books have also been featured in Reader's Digest.
Cook is a graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia University School of Medicine. He finished his postgraduate medical training at Harvard. He divides his time between homes in Boston and Florida where he lives with his wife Barbara. He is currently on leave from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. He has successfully combined medical fact with fantasy to produce a succession of bestselling books. Cook's medical thrillers are designed, in part, to keep the public aware of both the technological possibilities of modern medicine and the ensuing ethical problems.
Cook got a taste of the larger world when the Cousteau Society recruited him to run its blood - gas lab in the South of France. Intrigued by diving, he later called on a connection he made through Jacques Cousteau to become an aquanaut with the US Navy Sealab when he was drafted in 1969.
Cook is a private member of the Woodrow Wilson Center's Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees, led by Chairman Joseph B. Gildenhorn, are appointed to six-year terms by the President of the United States.
 Doctor / Novelist
Dr. Cook's profession as a doctor has provided him with ideas for many of his novels. In each of his novels, he strives to write about the issues at the forefront of current medical practice.
To date, he has explored issues such as organ donation, genetic engineering,fertility treatment, in - vitro fertilization, research funding, managed care, drug research, and organ transplantation.
Dr. Cook has been remarked to have an uncanny ability to anticipate national controversy. In an interview with Dr.Cook, Stephen McDonald talked to him about his novel Shock; Cook admits the timing of Shock was fortuitous. "I suppose that you could say that it's the most like Coma in that it deals with an issue that everybody seems to be concerned about," he says, "I wrote this book to address the stem cell issue, which the public really doesn't know anything about. Besides entertaining readers, my main goal is to get people interested in some of these issues, because it's the public that ultimately really should decide which way we ought to go in something as ethically questioning as stem cell research."
Keeping his lab coat handy helps him turn our fear of doctors into bestsellers. "I joke that if my books stop selling, I can always fall back on brain surgery," he says. "But I am still very interested in it. If I had to do it over again, I would still study medicine. I think of myself more as a doctor who writes, rather than a writer who happens to be a doctor." After 23 books,he has come up with a diagnosis to explain why his medical thrillers remain so popular. "The main reason is, we all realize we are at risk. We're all going to be patients sometime," he says. "You can write about great white sharks or haunted houses, and you can say I'm not going into the ocean or I'm not going in haunted houses, but you can't say you're not going to go into a hospital."
