Hello and welcome you all to my stop on the Gemini Experiment blog tour. Arranged by the wonderful Random things tours (Anne)
I’m going to start this off by saying what a read this book is. From start to finish it had me on tender hooks. It had me constantly second guessing but I could never figure this book out. That should be enough for a review right? well that’s me done goodnight haha. I’m only joking I will get on with the review of this amazing book. (i’m a big sci-fi nut)
This book is a Flame tree press ARC just reading the blurb I knew id like this book. Lets talk about one of the main characters. Mr Nolan who has a chronic disease which is killing him slowly. Hes been offered a second chance at life with his family and kids. Tom has been offered a kind of replacement body that is exactly a perfect copy of his own body. Except its robotic with Toms memory’s installed into it.
They have managed to digitized the human brain that they could put it on a hard drive and install it into his new body. Tom would be perfect again. Know life threatening disease and spend the rest of his life with his family.
Obviously something has to happen or it would be boring if it was just plain sailing. So before they put Toms brain into his new body they need to test it. So they find a prisoner who has a life sentence for horrific crimes and cancer which is killing him in a painful way (shame right?) he agrees to this and now becomes the first person to have his brain digitized and put in Toms body as a beta testing. Only thing is this is a bad man with bad intentions. He manages to escape and go on a spree degrading Toms name and making him one of the most wanted men in America.
So poor Tom is left the the lurch and a mad man is murdering and robbing on his trail of destruction. Now this where it gets interesting. The Russians have been hiding in the background and want this technology for themselves so they can build armies. Also a president of the United states plays a cameo role in this book.
If you’re into your science fiction reads then you wont be disappointed. Even if this isn’t your typical genre give it ago anyway. I will guarantee you will really enjoy this book.
Brian Pinkerton has done really well in writing this book. From the highs to the lows to keeping you on your toes. You wont be able to put this book down. I will look forward to reading more books by Brian Pinkerton hopefully on a future blog tour. There is some information at the bottom please give it a read and thank you if you’ve made it this far.
