I’m still having a hangover for the second book of this series, The Genetic  Gene, so I apologize in advance if I happen to compare the two books.

Unlike its predecessor, this book didn’t start with action-pack scenes, as a matter of fact, it covers a very intriguing scene for me. Having read its first chapter, my brain cell is starting to get the work done so I have some pretty much assumptions in this book. But so far, it didn’t happen, haha. I really didn’t have an investigator mind at all.

It wasn’t bad but I’m still looking for something in this book. Oh well, I guess I need to blame this to my long overdue hangover eh? But what I liked about this book is that it wasn’t boring. Because admit it guys, some lesson-induced stories can be a bit boring if it’s just plainly about the lesson. All talk and no action. So I really appreciated the author for making this book lesson-filled while at the same time jammed-packed with action and adventure. Though I admit I have some least favorites scenes from the book.

And I also think that out of the other two books from this series, this book is the most religious of them all. I mean, in this book, I really appreciated it more. Though I agree that the first book was also more a bit on the moral tone but I think I’m still adjusting reading this kind of genre so I haven’t felt it at that time.

It was also good to know that at as early as 1980’s the technology was already that advance eh? Hehe. And also, Sophia and Anne. Dang! I really thought I’ve already know what’s coming, but deym, this book is so unpredictable. I also love that this book comprises many relatable lines which mind you, I can’t help but highlight them all. I even think this book is the most colorful book I’ve ever had because of all my uncontrollable highlights. You can read some of my favorite lines from this story here.

And I just love love love the action-packed ending. Let’s just say that I haven’t anticipated that one too. I thought the Sophia in the previous book was the Sophia (the real Sophia) in this story. Well, who could have known eh? This book could be perfect just like the second book from this series, but I guess I just love the latter more so I can’t give all the 5-stars in this story?

Read the story guys and get ready to be mesmerized. If you happen to read this book already, please feel  free to drop by some comments below.
