Review: Honestly I did not give this novel ...more
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
The Darwin Variant is a blend of sci fi, horror, and thriller that re imagines a world where the Earth has a close call with a comet and believes themselves to be in the clear only to be found that it is infected with some kind of alien virus that turns the population encountering it into what amounts to a bunch of doped up, super intelligent, horny, power hungry humans. Disclaimer up front for anyone interested in this book - i ...more
Fast paced novel, which was truly novel( new). All of the characters were fleshed out and engaging. Best by this author imho
While the story may have wandered a bit, the path led the reader along a compelling trail. One of the best endings I've read in a long time .
Wow...i did not see that coming
I absolutely love Man of Legend, so I was really pumped for this book.
Johnson does not disappoint. This book weaves one hell of a tale
The core of the story is there: at some times brilliant, other times in need of some more serious editorial feedback and control. Some content after the situational setup will cause some, if not many, to put the book aside due to explicit and disturbing behaviors. Good tension for opening setup, then wandering between intense story-telling interspersed with sections that should have been removed with more prudent editing

Great premise, needs better character development
Pretty good premise for a book, but too many perspectives some of them only a paragraph long. It was hard to get too know the characters. Would have been a 5 star with better character development. The idea of a virus coming from space via a comet was interesting. Would have liked to know about the origin of the virus.
I really loved this book. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I can really see this being turned into a series on tv. I would definitely be watching.
