Change Agent by Daniel Suarez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
May be 4 stars is too much, and as I pre-ordered it and bought it for rather high price (Eur 13,99 which is today Us$ 15.99), I think it was not worth it, I must control my self better not buy ebooks too expensive (or pre-order them for a high price).
The theme is very well written and researched (manipulating human genes for profit), but it was not very suspenseful and had nearly no real twists, I guessed the outcome early on.
Chapter 36 / page 327 (as per Kindle): Journey way too long, boring.
But the book has a section Further Reading in the back, and that is one of the things I sorely miss in most near future SF books (and even some thrillers, crime and mysteries).
So, recommended if you want a realistic view at a future that could have been thought up by German Nazis, the Übermensch not selected but genetically engineered.
And, with that, 4 stars it is.
