Oh, I generally love this author. I buy his books sight unseen and usually rave about them.
But this one - oh, this one...it failed for me rather spectacularly.
Our diverse characters were shamefully stereotypical. Whether it was the Indian guy with the Elvis haircut or the horny Asian girl who kept confusing her Ls and Rs, I was simply cringing.
Our main character was primarily concerned with girlfriends and never once felt like anyone with any authority or scientific knowledge.
I expected things to get weird, but I didn't expect to just be completely stunned into disbelief. What one character manages to do to themselves was...unfortunate and unbelievable.
Our basic plot was actually interesting. I was intrigued by what would happen with the experiment and was...disappointed by the end result.
So, a misstep for me, but I will read the author again. I still like his work. Just not this one.
