  • 1 thought on “Genome”

    1. Decent conclusion to the series, but after 1 and 3/4 build up about the Looking Glass, the reveal as to what it actually was capable of was quite disappointing. The entire ending also seemed abrupt and penned by an author who realized that the book was ending.

    2. I’m a little conflicted about this book. I enjoyed Pandemic a lot, and was anxious to read the sequel. Overall, I liked the book, but something felt off. The author has stated that he originally planned a trilogy, but later changed to a two book series. Maybe there was not a natural break point to transition to a 3rd book. It seemed to me that there was too much material in Genome. A world-wide chase and battle story, a double time-line, a great reveal, a series wrap-up. Most of the story revo [...]

    3. This book is full of intrigue, mystery and deep philosophical theories, religious beliefs merged with science.Lots of secret society groups, spy, love triangle, adventure and honestly confusing dialogue. I enjoyed this at times, others I really had to force my self to read because of all the waiting , some of the action and fighting was confusing , but I admit I can't visualize technical descriptions of some of equipment, subs and stuff. The overall story was Interesting, and I kept reading to g [...]

    4. Mind-BlowingBeen Waiting For This Book For MonthsGreat, Out Of This World Ideas And Awesome PlotWant More Sequels But Their Won’t Be Another One ;( Really Loved It And Definitely Recommend All Books By A.G. Riddle Great Author

    5. I really enjoyed the science fiction, very imaginative! This was much better than the first book in the series. I really enjoyed it.

    6. This started off well but then it kind of went downhill. It's quite long, but most of it is just repetition with various people chasing each other around the globe, and explaining things to each other so cryptically that they're not actually saying anything at all. I didn't particularly care for any of the characters, except maybe Avery.And then we have the Looking Glass. (view spoiler)[Ok, so it's virtual reality. I was expecting something more 2001: A Space Odyssey than The Matrix but that poi [...]

    7. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.1 Corinthians 15:51‭-‬53 NIVbible/111/1co.15.51-53VNo, this is not a religious book and none intended, I think. It's just reading through this book reminding me of the p [...]

    8. PANDEMIC is really the first part of a single novel cut into two parts, and concluding with GENOME. Riddle apparently likes to do this, and used the same strategy with his first (and also hugely successful ATLANTIS GENE, ATLANTIS PLAGUE and ATLANTIS WORLDNDEMIC starts out as your basic plague that destroys the earth thriller, but with a much richer and more complex backstory. Initially there is an outbreak of a new type of hemorrhagic fever, like Ebola or Marburg but not, in a tiny hospital in K [...]

    9. A.G. Riddle is a typical thriller writer with very little original thought behind his stories. Many of the concepts and plot lines in this book have been used and/or discussed in other books. The way he compiles these into a story is original and interesting. What I couldn't stand was the constant reference to the interesting parts of the story "Rendition, Rapture, Rook, and Looking Glass" and every time someone was asked about it, the person either deflected, the story jumped away, or the expla [...]

    10. I've read all of Riddle's novels thus far and loved them. Polished each of them off in a day.This one though, it took a week. I couldn't get through it. I know these are self-published, but I felt he need some help on this one. It seemed like I was reading a first draft of a book. It was all over the place. Back and forth between past and future in the same chapter. A lot could have been edited out (easily 100 pages) and added to the last book to simply make one long novel. I felt the ending was [...]

    11. Desmond Hughes and Peyton Shaw saved the world in the previous book by helping world governments inoculate their infected populations. In "Genome," the followup to "Pandemic" in the Extinction Files, author A.G. Riddle continues the tale. Peyton has been reunited with her mother, who plays a role in the underground organization that nearly took over the world. And Peyton realizes they only delayed the inevitable. The Citium still controls the nanobots injected in the world's population to inocul [...]

    12. This book illustrates the most important fundamental principal of emerging technology WHO CONTROLS IT.The story concludes the events from the first book, in rather exciting style I might add. Without giving any spoilers, this tale continues with some of the most interesting concepts in modern science. The most important of which is how developments can be used for both good and evil, just as any tool; it only matters who is in control of that technology. With modern-day tech becoming more invasi [...]

    13. I really enjoyed Pandemic, which is the first book in this series. Sadly, I did not enjoy this one nearly as much and felt that for such a long book (nearly 500 pages) there was a lot of extraneous content that did not hold my attention well. On the positive side, there WAS enough to keep me going, and a few twists. I also liked how the perspectives changed thorough the book to keep it interesting.That said, the subject is interesting (simplifying by saying: conclave of powerful people throughou [...]

    14. So far I’ve enjoyed everything else I’ve read by AG Riddle. Genome was a fascinating ride, although I had trouble getting into it at the beginning. This book had a lot more military style action which I tend to skim over or it bogs me down. The climax was pretty satisfying, although I would have liked to learn more about what happens to Avery. She had such a pivotal role, and was way more of a bad ass than her male counterparts, and yet her backstory I found sparse and I felt just seeing her [...]

    15. I will tell you about the looking glass. Never.The following is my honest review of this book and may contain minor spoilers.The premise of this book (and the former) is really good and provides a fresh plot. I like Riddle's writing in general. HoweverIt felt like the writer was trying to over explain and over rationalize every detail. While I do appreciate the mostly accurate science, it felt at many spots the story was dragging too much.I also felt, given the size of each book that the ending [...]

    16. I really enjoyed “The Extinction Files” from what started out as a mysterious new disease turned out to be something so much more complex. “Genome”, which is the sequel to “Pandemic”, provided the satisfaction I was looking for after months of waiting for this book to be released. The book covers some interesting theories about technology, the universe, and places that the human brain can take us. From reading other comments, most people seem to think that the ending was kind of wrap [...]

    17. We need another book!!!Another excellent book from A.G. Riddle that moves the reader along the story at a breakneck pace. I have read two other of his series and have been pleased with all three. The Extinction Files combines a lot of scientific, history and potential possibilities of our existence all together for a great story. The writer wraps the book up in two instead of three volumes, but I could have used at least another chapter or two to go a little further into the ultimate ending of t [...]

    18. Mind blowing ending I had a lot of trouble reading this book -- maybe it was just me but I had a lot of trouble keeping the stories straight. There are multiple story lines going on with the same characters and I had trouble keeping the timelines in the correct order. I wish I had gone back and re-read the first book before starting this one--I think that would have helped keep things straight. And minor SPOILER ALERT: this book wraps up the extinction file series. The last chapter made me very [...]

    19. COPIED FROM : The truth was discovered thirty years ago, almost by accident. Dr. Paul Kraus had spent his entire career searching for what he called humanity’s lost tribes—human ancestors who had gone extinct. When Kraus compared the DNA samples of the lost tribes with our own, he found a pattern of changes: a code. At the time, the technology didn't exist to unravel what it meant. To protect the secret, Keller hid his work and disappeared. Now the technology exists to finally understand the [...]

    20. What will happen if Robert Langdon got the Jason Bourne threatment inside a Michael Crichton novel? Both Pandemic and Genome books. And I HATE those kind of comparision, because you start to read the book with a lot of expectations, but i really think it's an accurate description.Both Pandemic and genome books are both equal and different, the same fast-paced reading and sugar-like addiction; once you hit 30% you cannot let the books go.Genome is an awesome conclusion for Pandemic, I loved the c [...]

    21. I had preordered The Genome after reading Pandemic. It was fun to be familiar with the characters as I picked up this book sporadically over a month. I never felt like I had to relearn where I was in the story even after an extended hiatus from the book. This was incredibly intriguing and left some twists that I wasn't expecting. Riddle originally planned for a trilogy but cleanly finished up this particular story over two books. Full of thrills, near misses, family dynamics, technology and futu [...]

    22. A great followup to Pandemic. In reference to Pandemic I found the book harder to follow. If you haven't already done so, read Pandemic. Things will make a lot more sense. I found the very end to be rather strange and difficult to determine just what the author was trying to say. Also, the book, been written in both the present tense (in the now) and flashbacks to what happened or more importantly didn't happen in Pandemic, was at the same time "interesting" but at times, again, difficult to fol [...]

    23. The best thing that can be said is this is new sci-fi that doesn't still need copyediting.Even more distressing to read, though, than #1. The author jumps between time periods with no clue as to which is which. The big secret the characters are trying to resolve is teased incessantly ("we don't have time to talk about it") but without clues that would keep the reader engaged. We just know that a bunch of things with names starting with "R" are really important. It all gets explained in the last [...]

    24. Great story, choppy conclusionAG Riddle has become a favorite author and Genome did not disappoint. From the depth of the characters to his continued fascinating exploration of technology's impact on mankind I truly enjoyed this series and how it kept me thinking about so many different themes from how prepared we are for the next epidemic to how much is technology humanizing or dehumanizing our society. However I felt the plot tried to wrap up to many things at once at the end and the ending, w [...]

    25. A bit disorientingAfter reading the first novel, I anticipated Riddle's subsequent adventure. I enjoyed the tale but found the telling of it but confusing. Unless I am terribly mistaken, there was no time indicated as you began a chapter. I realize that this has a great deal to do with the lead character, Desmond's, self being revealed, but without a lead in to how the events unfolded in the real world as opposed to his consciousness, the telling is a bit disorienting . If my notes are confusing [...]

    26. Mind blowing read!!!!!Just finished book 2 and let me tell you these 2 books blow my mind. The thought and time put in to this story is completely impressive. I loved this series, I'm not much of a techie but it didn't matter because everything is explained so well. I have never read anything so amazing, this is definitely my favorite series ever. Thank you so much, Sincerely, Debora J Seifert

    27. A really good overall story and I like most of the characters, with their flaws and strengths. But at times I felt like I was reading a soap opera. There were no cut and dry characters - their lives all intertwined in some dramatic way. That detracted a bit from the story, which was otherwise quite interesting. Oh, and *SPOILER* the idea of the energy of the universe bouncing back and forth = amazing.

    28. Indiana Jones with a scientific secret society on a modem day scavenger hunt. Genetics, AI, quantum entanglement and quantum computing all aimed at taking humanity to a transcendent next level are woven into this high stakes adventure. The Indiana Jones aspect of the story made it a little less believable than the first book in the series. Still I enjoyed it and didn’t want to put it down. Some characters were a bit extreme but isn’t that what story telling is all about?

    29. Kept my interest but disappointed in the ending. I mean, a) we’re all gonna transfer our brains inside a computer and live forever- how many times has that been done? And b) ooh- we’re all already in a computer and the new world is this world? And, btw, that doesn’t even make sense, following through from the first book and 99% of this book. Still, it was interesting. I just wish he’d held it together through the end.

    30. Like others I found the ending somewhat abrupt. The author states this was supposed to have been a trilogy but he felt he had wrapped it up with just the two, I disagree with this statement. It needed more after the investment of reading the first & second bookse ending was extremely rushed and ended like reading a cover sheet.cally this is it and nothing moredisappointing considering I love the authors other books for this one to end so blah.
