I read the book. There is a good scientific part of it, and I have to say that it is well-written from biology-genetic point of view. A minor scientific mistake though is present, and that the expressed gene do code for proteins rather than enzymes (which they are by definition proteins). Having said that, obviously SOME genes, when they are expressed shall code enzymes.
Over all, nice reading.

Hollywood should be all over this as a thriller. What an incredibly interesting idea. Jurassic Park for the religious. When I first read this book, I was riveted from beginning to end and then spent the next month thinking about it.
That has been years ago and I still tell people how good this story is - get it and see for yourself.

Better written and more provocative than Brown's Da Vinci Code

I recently read several of Case's books (it's a pen name. who else does this person write as?) and find them all to be entertaining page-turners. Even figuring out the end of this book early didn't slow me down. I enjoyed "The Eighth Day" more though. Yes, the chapter divisions and writing feels a bit formulaic, but it's fun. The characterization is much better than what I've read in Dan Brown. But, if you really want to be sucked in and impressed, pick up any Michael Crichton book at the library.

I read this book about 5-6 years ago and still remember it well. It came out just in time to dovetail nicely into events of our time - cloning, genetics, in vitro fertilization for 40-50 year old women, etc. While I figured out the twist in the book by about page 70, the plot was good enough to keep me engaged. While I've read others criticize the intelligence of the lead detective, I disagree. The reader has an easier time figuring out the case primarily due to the fact that Case flips back and forth to events in Rome for an omniscient point-of-view. It's a good, topical read and made me a John Case fan.

I liked the idea and theme of the book. unfortunatly the lead charater, a brilliant investigator, was probably the world's worst detective. The reader can guesse every detail chapters before the hero can put two and two together.
The suspense was lost when you kept thinking what a moron the lead was. From forgetting that he had the one Key piece of evidence, a letter that conviently explained it all, in his pocket for half the book. Tjat, and the fact that the investigator's sneaky aproach to finding out iformation was to spill out the whole story to anyone he meets, and he's shocked when the bad guys are on his tail.
as for the writing, it's so-so. i found the him repeating phrases all the time and using the same themes.

I have recommended this book to a LOT of people. Every time I get into a discussion about good books, I bring this one up. It is an interesting story, with a great twist, and plenty of action.
The concept of this book was very interesting to me. At the time I was majoring in Biology, and now I am a med student, going into OB/GYN. However, this book is appealing to me for entertainment as well as scientific reasons. You certainly don't have to be a scientist to understand it or enjoy it.
I have been recommending it more often recently, now that I have read Dan Brown's books (Angels and Demons, Da Vinci Code)- I think that someone who likes one would like the other author's work.

I was reluctant to start reading this book as I thought it would be a boring, medical-type mystery. Was I ever wrong! Case combines religion with science and comes up with a barn-burner. My only complaint is that things come to a conclusion too quicly at the end and there are too many loose ends left dangling. The epilogue is also a little hokey. Otherwise, I was very impressed with my first Case novel.
