I like science fiction, and YA, but was concerned that this was going to be too plot-driven, too much about the mystery and the suspense. Well, that was there, and I would recommend this to fans of adventure and related genres. But it was also a provocative exploration of science and ethics and human nature. Everybody was flawed, and made questionable choices, but nobody was truly evil - and the key characters grew wiser and more compassionate.

In so far as the revelation at the end, well, sure there were clues. But it wasn't exactly foreshadowing, because there could have been several different actual 'answers.'

I recommend reading this with a friend and then conversing about the ethical choices. These ideas should be explored. A quote is relevant: Exclusivity amounts to secrecy, and I think that's a mistake."" ( )

Boring boring boring "omg biotech!" YA book, ostensibly about a genetically engineered boy. I say ostensibly because although the main character has angst about how much better he is at everything than everyone else, the story was mostly about his love life. Also, the Huge! Ethical! Dilemna! that the book examines (whether we should do genetics work) is a pretty played-out question. A much better book dealing with these issues is Nancy Kress's Beggars In Spain. ( )

Eli takes a job in a genetics laboratoy even though his father vehemently dislike sthe owner of the corporation. Eli thinks this is connected to how he has felt different his whole life. Eli's mother is dying from Huntington's disease.

This is a young adult book. I found some of its views on science and genetics to be interesting but thought parts of the resolution of the story were very unrealistic. ( )

this is the second book I've read by Nancy Werlin, and she has an strange problem that I don't think I've run across before.

Her books are interesting, but not enjoyable. She has great ideas, but maybe she writes teenagers too well, because hers are all self-centered and annoying.

At least the books are short, so you don't have to suffer through much time with the protagonists.

I'm writing this so that I remember how little fun they are next time I'm thinking about what a neat job she does with the mystery. ( )

The novel, Double Helix by Nancy Werlin encompasses the relationship an eighteen year old boy name Eli Samuel that graduated from high school and trying to get the job at Wyatt Transgenic, so he can work as a legendary molecular biologist . In the beginning, Eli the main character of the struggles with his relationship between Dr. Wyatt and his parents with the job Eli is taking. Throughout the middle he perserves through uncovering disconcerting information about himself, working as an apprentice to Dr Wyatt. By the end he has learned that solving mysteries and clues about scientific experiments can change your action on mastering to become a molecular biologist. My Final Thought about this book is that it explains the complicated ethics of genetic engineering.
