I read this straight after reading The List
and both books are pretty similar. That's not a bad thing though.
Origin has a great story and engaging characters. It's very visual in that you can imagine a film of it working very well. Think of Origin as the book equivilant of an Arnie film. Loud, brash, utterly ridiculous but great fun.
Time to read something else on the ever growing Kindle pile but I'll certainly be back to see what else Mr Konrath has to offer.
As is the case with all Konrath books the Kindle formatting is excellent. The author was even kind enough to reply to an email correcting what I thought was a formatting error (devout Jews write 'God' as 'G-d' which looks like an error on the page but isn't).
