Books I've Read (Winter/Spring 2006): Vitals

Greg Bear, Vitals. Sci-Fi with the by-now customary Greg Bear Daring and Disturbing Twist. This one's a mystery/thriller/conspiracy novel about biologically-mediated mind control. It's...daring and disturbing. Unfortunately it suffers from Heinlein Disease, that syndrome where a tightly plotted and brilliantly innovative story crashes into a brick wall twenty pages from the end of the book, flops feebly around in its own fluids for nineteen of them, then oozes quietly off the last. Worth a read, if not a full-price purchase.
