darwin's radio

life of pi coverdarwin's radio
by greg bear

from the back cover: "Ancient diseases encoded in the DNA of humans wait like sleeping dragons to wake and infect again-or so molecular biologist Kaye Lang believes. And now it looks as if her controversial theory is in fact chilling reality..." I was strolling through the local Barnes & Noble booksellers, wanting to find new reading material. The book I was looking for, Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, was not available. After about an hour and a half of perusing the fiction section to no avail, I wandered into the sci-fi section. There on the Sci-Fi bestsellers shelf was the novel Darwin's Children by Greg Bear. I opened grabbed it off the shelf, the word "Darwin" always piquing my interest - and found it to be the "sequel" of sorts to Bear's earlier novel, Darwin's Radio.

So of course I had to purchase both!
