I decided to start a book review linky…there are two great ones that I join up with (see buttons below).  I hope you’ll link up your posts about book reviews below.

Now onto what I have finished reading… 

Loved his other book, so had to read this one. The opening is already giving my anxiety and wondering who he can trust and when he will die.

Goodreads Summary: The FOOTPRINTS of God

In the heart of North Carolina’s Research Triangle stands a corporate laboratory much like the others nearby. But behind its walls, America’s top scientists work around the clock to attain the holy grail of the twenty-first century – a supercomputer that surpasses the power of the human mind. Appointed by the president as ethicist to Project Trinity, Dr. David Tennant finds himself in a pressure cooker of groundbreaking science and colossal ambition. When his friend and fellow scientist is murdered, David discovers that the genius who runs Project Trinity was responsible and that his own life is in danger. Unable to reach the president, and afraid to trust his colleagues, David turns to Rachel Weiss, the psychiatrist probing the nightmares that have plagued him during his work at Trinity. Rachel is skeptical of David’s fears, but when an assassin strikes, the two doctors must flee for their lives. Pursued across the globe by ruthless National Security Agency operatives, David and Rachel struggle to piece together the truth behind Project Trinity and the enormous power it could unleash upon the world. As constant danger deepens their intimacy, Rachel realizes the key to Trinity lies buried in David’s disturbed mind. But Trinity’s clock is ticking . . . Mankind is being held hostage by a machine that cannot be destroyed. Its only hope – a terrifying chess game between David and the Trinity computer, with the cities of the world as pawns. But what are the rules? How human is the machine? Can one man and woman change the course of history? Man’s future hangs in the balance, and the price of failure is extinction

MY REVIEW: 3 STARS

Makes me wonder what our government is really working on behind our backs. What technology and evil plans are they creating that we are just clueless too and will only find out when we are about to be destroyed. 

Greg Iles does not disappoint, from the moment I started I realized it was going to be wild ride. The beginning and end were fast paced and beyond nerve wracking. The middle was a bit slow and I almost shut it off. A great combination of theology and technology..with a bunch of ethics thrown right in.

Now if only they listened to David from the beginning, but you know how twisted and evil those big wigs in our government really are.

Would ONLY recommended if you are intrigued by theology and technology or the conflicts between them. Was hoping it would have been more action packed or more of a mind f&ck. 

 

 ~~~NOW I’M READING~~~

 

Of course I’ll read another Harlan Coben book…AND SO GLAD I AM.. He opens with this being written twenty years ago, but he’s is such a great writer, you’d never know. 

From the beginning you are on the edge of your seat…with disgust, horror, and dread…knowing you are in for one hell of sick and twisted ride. I still shiver thinking about what happened. 

So far, I wish the only one who will be murdered is the evil sister…the dirty, evil wh*re. 

I have an idea who is behind all the murders…at least I think I know. Really an amazing book, I’m captivated.

Goodreads Summary: The Miracle Cure

A stunning, controversial, nonstop thriller that careens through the inner halls of high-stakes medical research, the upper echelons of Washington politics, and the steamy streets of Bangkok, on the trail of a dangerous and deadly cure for AIDS.

  1. I admit with the weather getting nicer, getting the puppy and the girls finishing school this past week, I haven’t had time to read a book in about 3 weeks. I started one back then, but haven’t gotten a chance to get back to it. Hope to soon again though. Love reading what you are reading though and your take on it 🙂

  2. Oh, Karen, I envy you. As I type this, I literally have three books on my nightstand — and all of them have bookmarks at various points because, apparently, for me, reading a book is like eating Lays potato chips — you can’t have just one.

    But at the rate I’m going, I’m hoping to finish at least one by the time Scotty enters Kindergarten. :-/

    • I wouldn’t read as much if I didn’t listen to books on tape during my commute. I am sure I will find it hard to keep up with all the reading when I am home this summer. I totally agree with you, usually have one in my car and one book at home.

  3. I just started Rosie Perez’s book Handbook for an Unpredictable life, ummm I wish I had more time in the day to finish it!!!
    Her childhood…. was tough.
    I know there’s a bright side, therefore I think that’s why I can somewhat handle the sadness…
    XOXO

Would love to read your thoughts
