The Darwin Variant Reviews
Unique story telling.
This book was written entirely in an interview manner. Each character tells his or her experience to a documentarian. Very unique. Sometimes slow moving, but overall worth the read.
Publishing Date: June 2018

Review: Honestly I did not give this novel ...more
There were times when I wondered where this was going. What starts out as a comet heading to Earth turns into a race to find a cure for a infection brought by the comet. The story line is very complex. The list of characters is very diverse and the story often changes points of view using all in the plot line. The world building and backstory are very well done. This is a tension filled story with danger at every corner. The solution and the person who finds it are both a surprise. More a thrill ...more
Good read. Has some unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed it. Didn’t know this guy produced the six million dollar man.
I received a copy of The Darwin Variant through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The Darwin Variant is described as a ‘day-after-tomorrow thriller’ full of catastrophe and danger. I found it to be reminiscent of a lot of science fiction already out there, which can be considered good or bad depending on your opinion on the matter. The earlier parts reminded me of half a dozen space collision stories out there, while the latter half reminded me very much of Annihilation.
I liked the narrative framework - using supposed emails, texts, etc. to tell the story. The ending was a little too idealistic for me.
Thanks to Netgalley, who provided an advance copy of this novel, in exchange for an honest book review.
As a lover of Science Fiction I at first found the concept interesting but it really didn't settle well for me, but then it was different, i love to read so I worked my way through it.
Of some interest, others may like the style and substance but a little slow for me.
