E–pub READ [Genome The Extinction Files #2] · A.G. Riddle
A long drawn out science story the screws up AT THE END SND GOES STUPID FORGETTING WHAT A the end snd goes stupid forgetting what a actually is He spent a ling time writing all this then it looks like he couldn t figure out how to end it so chose something stupid An APP I REALLY ENJOYED THE SCIENCE FICTION VERY IMAGINATIVE THIS really enjoyed the science fiction very imaginative This much better than the first book in the series I really enjoyed it This book is full of intrigue mystery and deep philosophical theories religious beliefs merged with scienceLots 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 euipment subs and stuff The overall story was Interesting and I kept reading to get to the end the mysterious code explained and revealed At the completion of this book I m confused and don t understand the ending Physical reality looking glass is the next leap for humans alternative reality but aware of the physical one Mysterious guide recommends naming the highest mountain peak different from the physical realm so that when in the looking glass reality our aware that it s the newly discovered reality plane Only it s named the same Physical reality Mount Rush looking glass reality it s named Mount Rush I m so confused and don t understand the ending at all This started off well but then it kind of went downhill It s uite 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 cryptically that they re actually saying anything at all I didn t particularly care for any of the characters except maybe AveryAnd then we have the Looking Glass view spoilerOk so it s virtual reality I think I was expecting something 2001 A Space Odyssey than The Matrix but that point I was just glad to actually have a proper answer Except I don t get it At the end they choose to name the mountain in the virtual world Mount Everest which I think is supposed to mean that our real world is in fact vi. A code hidden in the human genome will reveal the ultimate secret of human existenceAnd could hold humanity's only hope of survival Genome concludes The Extinction Files the two book series that began with Pandemic It's a race against time and an exploration into the deepest mysteries of human existence with a twist at the end ou'll never see comingBuy now and continue the series or read it for free in Kindle UnlimitedSelected Praise for AG Riddle“reads like a superior collaboration between Dan Brown and Michael Crichton” The Guardian on Pandemic“I finished the book fast because I just couldn't wait” WIRED GeekDad on Departure“Riddle keeps the focus on his characters rather than the technological marvels” Publisher's Weekly on DepartureAn Extended Look Rtual reality That s a cool
inception style twist but it pretty much renders everything pointless since in this world we still style twist but it pretty much renders everything pointless since in this world we still t escaped our physical bodies or ended war or disease So apparently our big inevitable escaped our physical bodies or ended war or disease So apparently our big inevitable is just to live in the matrix for no apparent reason As I said I don t get it hide spoiler I ve read all of Riddle s novels thus far and loved them Polished each of them off in a dayThis 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 It was all over the place Back and forth between 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 jammed together to get it finished on a deadline with no clear ideaVery disappointed in the story line The last book was clear concise and on a mission From my college microbiology class the basics of a genome is the genetic material of an organism The end of the story didn t tie it up with the genome It was a computer based program that turned into an app from people s minds People have been researching the evolution of man for this This part of the story severely needed time I understand what he was trying to convey but it wasn t there for me Not at all Wasted a week Won t be reading any future work unless someone gives it to me I m a little conflicted about this book I enjoyed Pandemic a lot and was anxious to read the seuel 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 revolves around 7 key characters and their real loyalties and motivations and trustworthinessFor me the weakest part of the story is the central plot line The concept of universe expansion cycles and evolutionary jumps is not. T GenomeIn 2003 the first human genome was seuenced It was a breakthrough of historic proportions but only one scientist knows the full truth of what lies buried in our DNA That secret will change everything we thought we knew about our past And our futureDr Paul Kraus has spent his career searching for what he calls humanity's lost tribes human ancestors who have gone extinct When Kraus compares the DNA samples of the lost tribes with our own he discovers a pattern of changes A code He believes he knows what the code is but the technology doesn't exist to fully decode it To protect the secret Kraus hides his work and disappears For ears the secret remains buried When Kraus dies mysteriously his work is lost foreverNow the technology exists to finally unravel the code. Well explained at all Somehow we are inevitably destined for a Matrix type alternate How do we know there have been past cycles and will be future cycles I was disturbed that there was no substantial discussion of the obvious risks of a society controlled by the Citium The book seemed to show that the only problem is if the Citium was ruled by bad guys No mention of any problem with an elitist intellectual group who knows best controlling governments by bad guys No mention of any problem with an elitist intellectual group who knows best controlling governments people As with an elitist intellectual group who knows best controlling governments people As elite mention of any problem with an elitist intellectual group who knows best controlling governments and people As if elite are immune from the corruption of power History teaches us otherwise This should have been mentioned and discussed somewhere Definitely ualifes as a page turner but I am a little disappointed how this series ended I felt the epilogue was rushed and gave it 4 out of 5 stars because of this But still I think it s a very satisfying read it s also smart and makes Tiger Tiger you think like it kept me thinking about how prepared we are for the next epidemic and how much technology is humanizing or dehumanizing our society Enjoy Decent conclusion to the series but after 1 and 34 build up about the Looking Glass the reveal as to what it actually was capable of was uite disappointing The entire ending also seemed abrupt and penned by an author who realized that the book was ending There were so many big ideas wrapped in this sci fi adventure I honestly couldn t keep up This was a buddy read and I kept going back to my buddy saying I surely missed something here or what did Riddle mean with this because it was complex in unexpected ways It s not often a book talks up to me rather than spelling out every little detail and hint but I was glad for the mental challenge A really good read but the ending felt like the author just woke up one morning and realized Oh my God today s my deadline Okay just write an ending uickly and send the book to the editor It didn t come naturally Anyway other than that it was an interesting read it definitely makesou think about stuff about our world and our society The pacing is uick the science interesting and not difficult to understand and it s also packed with action I wish that ending had been different though. Buried in the human genome The race to find Kraus's research has begun and one group will do anything to find itDr Peyton Shaw and her mother have obtained part of Kraus's research and a cryptic message that could lead to the remaining pieces They soon learn that finding those pieces may be dangerous than anyone imagined But there's no choice His work is the key to stopping a global conspiracy and an event that will change humanity foreverThe ultimate secret buried in the human genome will change our very understanding of what it means to be human For Peyton finding it may come at an incredible price She must weigh the lives of strangers against those she loves Desmond Hughes and her mother With time running out Peyton makes a fateful choice one that can never be undone.
