Book 41-Disturb by J.A Konrath
Hello everyone! Today I am here to introduce you to a new drug called N-Som! This drug will allow you to stay up for days on end! It will increase your endurance in many ways, and allow you to rarely sleep, while still maintaining your normal life. Sounds like a dream come true doesn't it?!
So is the setting for Disturb, it's a story about Manny & David, two test subjects for the new drug N-Som. They feel great, look great and are doing better than ever on the tests...until people start dieing. Not just dieing, but being shot, butchered, hung from trees...and so on and so forth. The nice little "non drowsy" world the makers of N-Som are hoping to produce is slowly falling through the cracks.
Seriously, this book didn't really do much for me. It seemed kind of hollow...I guess is the best word...it was shiny and pretty on the outside, but really there was nothing deep down in the middle. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it, kind of like a person would enjoy a Robin Cook novel (which I am REALLY not a fan of). You have the medical aspect, with the scientific aspect, and throw in some blood and guts, a chivalrous man hero, and sort of fragile female, and of course the big bad guy.
I love Konraths work, but this one just seemed kind of "un-konrathlike". Maybe I'm just so used to reading his other persona, Jack Kilborn....who is all about the gore and blood...Yup...thats what I like!
So the next book is Serial by J.A. Konrath, Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch. I am about half way through this book and am LOVING it!! If anything please pick up this book ( in e book format only) for the foreword. I have never laughed so hard in my life!
Till next time!
