A great read!

Exciting read and you may learn from it. A lot of medical and scientific terminology but there is a glossery in the back of the book. Expand your mind, read Darwin's Radio!


You'd better be a geneticist.

The book starts out good but quickly looses it's appeal in a lot of DNA technical explaining. Confusing how the story jumps around. I put this one down after reading a quarter of it.


A Solid Science Novel

by SeldomSeen on Oct 25, 2007

A recent Hollywood movie called "Children of Men" contained a premise in which mankind had suddenly become sterile. No scientific explanation was ever mentioned. In Darwin's Radio, Greg Bear describes a similar scenario in chilling detail. In the tradition of Asimov, there's a great deal of hard science and sociology and plenty to mull over as you turn the pages. Darwin's Radio is about politics and science and the politics of science. The characters are convincing as they grapple with a deadly new virus and a mind-numbing, back-stabbing bureaucracy.As it happens, I read this novel on a backpack and was tearing pages off as I read to give a buddy. While not a traditional thriller with car chases and gun battles, there's plenty here to keep you turning pages and to discuss on a moonlit night: life, evolution, genetics and the human heart.
