    This omnibus edition contains two stories by Robin Cook. I liked both ones in terms of subject and plot but it's terribly annoying how both don't have a conclusive ending. I remember reading Abduction by him, for instance, and absolutely loving the perfectly ironic end the author used for that story. By comparison, these two (Toxin and Chromosome 6) leave too many things unsolved, too much in the air which I know could have been avoided and I don't think more closure would have detracted anything This omnibus edition contains two stories by Robin Cook.

By comparison, these two (Toxin and Chromosome 6) leave too many things unsolved, too much in the air which I know could have been avoided and I don't think more closure would have detracted anything from the point the author clearly wanted to make. In fact, it would have made the thriller part of the plot much more rewarding.

    Ok, the Toxin was just complete waste of time. By the back cover text we already knew that the daughter of Kim Reggis will die and that had to be waited for the first 200 pages. The whole story was so slow and predictable that I still wonder how I managed to read it till the end. I guess the whole thing was supposed to be a lesson for us about the dangers of industrialized food handling but it just failed - big time. Boring. Chromosome 6 then... That was far more interesting and it had a nice ide Ok, the Toxin was just complete waste of time.

I guess the whole thing was supposed to be a lesson for us about the dangers of industrialized food handling but it just failed - big time. Boring. Chromosome 6 then... That was far more interesting and it had a nice idea of "what if...?". I just wish it would've been taken further with more thinking and trimming the facts and details to make it more believable. Now the writer went where it was easiest to go. So, the plot itself was not too intelligent or clever and all the recombinant DNA techniques presented were just so very basics. This is always the problem of very technical books - they get old. (This has probably been far more "scary" and thought provoking at the time of the first publishing.) Also the ethical problems we've seen so often in several and several movies that it was nothing new either. But still... despite all the flaws of the plot and impossibilities when it comes to evolution, I kind a liked this. This was pure entertainment after I got myself stop picking on the DNA stuff and reading it only as a fun story. (Areas of recombinant DNA technology and biotechnology are my special knowledge so it is not always easy for me to read these types of books.)

    Awsome story. The ending was missing. They left two many open issues with the bonobos, Kevin and his group, the crime families, etc.

    book starts with promising thrilling incidents but too many characters makes it louse the plot.
