Found this book very uninteresting. Surprised, usually like these authors. Would not really recommend.

Not what I expected and thought the story line disappointed especially at the end.

This is the perfect book about human hubris and above all, one man's inability to accept his human limitations. Well written, entertaining, and well-developed characters. I think the end was a bit over the top. Overall a very good read

Could anyone not see the outcome of this book? Nature vs. Human and technology. Dude, you know who is going to win!

Read this book as a digital audio book. Well read by narrator.

A good read with interesting characters.

Didn't find the ending was strong -- though the news clippings at the end, left you hanging.....
