Book Review: The Darwin Variant by Kenneth Johnson

Publishing Date: June 2018


Genre: SciFi

Rating: DNF

Publisher’s Description: When the icy shards of a rogue comet fall to Earth, they bring an unknown virus that accelerates evolution to extremes. Suddenly, infected plants grow stronger, choking out those uninfected. Animals turn aggressive and deadly. The eyes of loved ones go cold, and infected neighbors begin exhibiting signs of brutal domination.

Review: Honestly I did not give this novel a chance because it didn’t give me a chance to like it. It opens with this jumbled narrative of interviews and perceptions of various people as they live through the outbreak. Not my cup of tea. Additionally the whole “alien virus from space” shtick has been over done. Perhaps I will complete it at a later date should reviews pan out.
