Yesterday, I'm on about page 50 of this book and debating whether to abandon it as being both juvenile and derivative. I come to Goodreads and see I'm not alone in that opinion of this book. However, since there are many good reviews of the book, I decide to continue to read the book. Bad mistake. This book compares itself to 2001several times and it would have been a better use of my time to reread that book or re watch Terminator 2. This book, if anything,gets more and more unbelievable as it goes on. You can see the twist at the end a mile off. I love the Preston/Child books but this one is just a stinker.
