The Philosopher's Apprentice
Copyright James Morrow 2008
Morrow started out well enough, with a fantasy read that lead us down a path of DNA and genome make believe, where an individual is cloned rather than chosing a reproductive path in order to experience motherhood.
We ended up in sci-fi nightmare!
I could almost believe the beginning of the story, told convincingly and with at least a modicum of heart. However, I soon began to lose interest when the absurdly ridiculous became the apparent course of the novels journey!
It isn't often when I am unable to find it within myself to give an author a modicum of interest to the very end of the tome, but in The Philosopher's Apprentice I have struggled for 10 days to finish that which I have finally given up on.
I find the book totally unrealistic and without governing morals.
Since I found it in the 99-cents store, I suppose I should have known what to expect.
I rate this ...
...one star, simply because it did have a great, plausible beginning. But I have to give it....
...a thumbs down, and suggest you keep the kiddies away from it!
