Double Helix

It is tough to get involved with this book. The characters seem to be all caught up in some emotional wrongs, yet at the same time it is hard to feel sympathy towards them. Little attention was paid to details (tennis scoring anyone?), and the genetic basis seems somewhat plausible, but not very convincing. The characters also seem to come across as "what an adult would think teenagers would be if they could do what they want". Aside from all the plot and character issues, the book does move along well with some suspenseful pacing. If only the endgame of the suspense were something worth waiting for.
