I have read many of Robin Cook's books. I love the stories involving Jack & Laurie who work as doctors at the Coroner's office. I find it hard to believe this book is by the same author. As if the story is not bad enough on its own, the narrator does an extremely poor job. This book is so far fetched and poorly read, do not waste your time.

And for me it is none too soon. This bodywas somewhat of a lemon from the beginning. I've had to replace many of the organs and the knees twice. Every day it seems that there is another problem. been an endless struggle. And I've just heard this morning that the downtime has dropped to only four years due to lack of current demand. For some reason, no one is dying these days. That's wonderful! I was wondering why you decided so abruptly.

This is probably my favorite book by Robin Cook. I love the way he explored the possibilities of another world under the ocean. I found the beginning to be incredibly suspenseful, not knowing what was going to happen to them in their mini sub 20,000 feet under the surface. Each point they passed taking them further into this new world was more intriguing than the previous. The way he describes these other worldly beings really makes you think about the possibilities out there. I thought the ending was quite fitting, and I've thought on more than one occasion that I wish I had a follow up book to know what happens to everyone after the book ends. I've read this book several times it's one of my favorite books overall and definitely a favorite by Robin Cook.

As usual Robin Cook finds an intriguing scientific concept and finds a way to wrap an engaging story around it. I enjoyed seeing non -medical from him. However one of Robin Cook's problems is that he understands people's bodies far better than the hearts of people. His characters become so stereotyped in this book they're ridiculous and the intriguing idea comes off as being more half baked than usual. The dialog in this story is quite bad. But the idea that there could be a quite ancient and highly evolved civilization in the Moho is really interesting and his thoughts about what it might be like is amazing. It's not totally thought out but it certainly outlined far enough to make hours of pleasant speculation possible. That is very rare in popular fiction these days. Well, Robin Cook can certainly afford to produce a clinker once in a while. I just wish this one failure would have taught him a bit more and that he would venture back into this world beneath the surface again -- this time leaving some of his stereotypes behind with the microbes the visitors decontaminated them from.

Surprise ending cuts it short! There must be another book to reveal what happens to the castaways!!! Wonderful science fiction book. A break from the medical thrillers that he usually writes!!! I'm not sure what I like better. What a different perspective from him. It is a must read!! Very different.

I've read this book twice and thoroughly enjoyed the concept. My only negative reaction stems from two of the characters who are unnecessarily portrayed overly declasse to make a point regarding the male attitude to women and the gay community.

I've always enjoyed the works of Robin Cook and this was a departure from his familiar territory. Good attempt here though the story does drag a bit as Cook applies too much of the diagnostic thinking used in his medical thrillers to a fantasy story that should have been a little less detailed.
Still In Mind
First off, let me say, the abduction in the title is not by aliens from outer space. In fact, just the opposite, but that's all I'll say so as not to spoil the imaginative and suspenseful plot of this sci-fi thriller. Robin Cook is one of the few writers whose books I will read automatically, without even glancing at the cover synopsis, he's that good. He's never failed to entertain, and this latest book is no exception. Once again, he varies from his usual medical thriller format (see Invasion) and pulls it off nicely. The story moves right along, always prompting you to read further to see what happens next or to explore the fascinating details of the advanced alternate culture within. The characters are varied and interesting, and his writing style is, as usual, excellent. I'm not sure what those who gave it a low rating were looking for, but if you're looking for an enjoyable, fascinating book to read, especially if you're a sci-fi fan, don't miss this one!
