I picked read this book because it won the Arthur C Clarke award for fiction, expecting something totally different... A little more sci-fi and a little less medical mystery. It had its creepy moments, and that kept me turning the pages, but overall I found the plot a little flat. It's a connect the dots mystery, but the leaps from one discovery to the next seemed unbelievable and kind of pointless. I found myself thinking "yeah, so what?"
