The concept of this story is really clever, but the story itself fell a little short. There literally was not a single likable character in the entire book and I found myself not caring about any of them...that's always a bit of a death toll for a book. Beyond that, the medical scenes were so far-fetched and futuristic, it almost seemed a bit "Twilight Zone"-esque. Suspending belief in stories isn't such an unusual thing, but this one was pretty far out there. It didn't work for me.

I began reading Saul' s books some years ago but not some of the older stories.
Alex was in a horrific accident, on the brink of death. Defying all the odds, a brilliant neurosurgeon operates and saves his life.
But strange and frightening things began to occur, people began to die.
Brain Child is a phenomenal story, playing havoc with one's
emotions and not until almost the end of the story does one have any clue about why these things are happening.
Saul has a unique talent for creating believable and plausible out of the impossible.
Love, love love his style of writing.

I'm not a fan of stories where people feel justified to wrong others of a certain class because their ancestors were wronged by this class of people way back when. With that said, this story almost plunges into that...but surfaces out of it in a very interesting way. It's a "monster" story in a fresh new sense.

Lots of build up and back story, but it didn't really drag on, and it felt necessary. Also I was pleased with the ending, to know my guess at an underlying cause was right :) no spoilers.

I'm a John Saul fan, and he didn't disappoint in this novel! It was intricate, scary, and all-around riveting. I thought it had good plots and twists to keep you turning the pages! I look forward to a new novel by John Saul sometime in the near future, perhaps?!
