Customer Review

on 26 September 2003
In order to make the perfect soldier against the Nazis, in the early 1940s a scientific innovation is set up, nicknamed Genesis, to recreate humans to such a speedy rate that they can become adults in just a few short months.
This seems like a nice idea, until the creator of the project is suspiciously killed by a car bomb.
This work is then again taken up several decades later by Dr Curtis, who keeps the project a secret and instead offers to infertile couples the chance to have a child again.
Meanwhile, following the horrific murder of their five year old daughter, Sue and John Hacket's already weak marriage collapses and they are forced to start a new life right in Curtis' practitioning area. Already we can see the effects of his work. He had created for Sue's sister and adorable young child, as well as creating children for several other families in the area.
The only problem is that the treatment has a deep, and horrifying side effect.
An exciting idea by Hutson, although this novel doesn't stand out as one of his best works. The ending is almost predictable and extremely unsatisfying as the last fifty pages or so become almost pathetically ridiculous.
If this is your first Shaun Huton book, perhaps Compulsion or Slugs may be a better start
