The Gemini Effect Synopsis: A single raindrop opens a Pandora’s box when the spawn of perverse genetic research performed during World War II is unleashed on an unsuspecting modern world. By dawn, only a dead city remains, eerily quiet and still, except for mutant beasts that hide from the light, multiply, and await the shadows of night to continue their relentless advance.
Ordered to investigate the unfolding crisis, biowarfare specialist Carolyn Ridenour barely escapes the creatures’ nocturnal onslaught, saved in the nick of time by Colonel Garrett Hoffman, who lost hundreds of his troops to a swarm that neither bombs nor bullets can stop.
As Carolyn and Garrett race to stop the plague, a battered and broken government prepares to release the fury of America’s nuclear arsenal on its own soil and its own citizens. – Goodreads Synopsis
The Gemini Effect Review
I’d read the reviews that put down this book, and thought “Meh, they just had their expectations too high. Book snobs, and whatnot. It can’t be that bad.” Oh, yes, yes it can be – and IS – that bad.
Wow. I mean, you know, for the most part I’m pretty good at shoving aside my need for scientific fact, a basis in reality, etc. This book goes, straight out the gate, to the realm of “WTF were you smoking when you wrote this??” so quickly your head will spin.
I would not recommend this book to anyone, and am extremely glad I got it on Kindle Unlimited so I didn’t really waste my money on it. It’s so bad its…no. I can’t say so bad its good. Its just so bad. I mean, just look at that last line in the synopsis. It didn’t get completely edited until after it was published, apparently, and when it DID… “significant plot changes”. Mmmhmm. That tells you a lot right there, doesn’t it?
I know I didn’t actually tell you much about this book in this review. Its just, yeah, I don’t want to think about it enough to dissect it in depth.
