About the Author: Robin Cook

Librarian Note Not to be confused with British novelist Robin Cook a pseudonym of Robert William Arthur CookDr Robin Cook born May , in New York City, New York is an American doctor novelist who writes about medicine, biotechnology, and topics affecting public healthHe is best known for being the author who created the medical thriller genre by combining medical writing with the thriller genre of writing His books have been bestsellers on the New York Times Bestseller List with several at A number of his books have also been featured in Reader s Digest Many were also featured in the Literary Guild Many have been made into motion picturesCook is a graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia University School of Medicine He finished his postgraduate medical training at Harvard that included general surgery and ophthalmology He divides his time between homes in Florida, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts where he lives with his wife Jean He is currently on leave from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary He has successfully combined medical fact with fiction to produce a succession of bestselling books Cook s medical thrillers are designed, in part, to make the public aware of both the technological possibilities of modern medicine and the ensuing ethical conundrumsCook got a taste of the larger world when the Cousteau Society recruited him to run its blood gas lab in the South of France while he was in medical school Intrigued by diving, he later called on a connection he made through Jacques Cousteau to become an aquanaut with the US Navy Sealab when he was drafted in the s During his navy career he served on a nuclear submarine for a seventy five day stay underwater where he wrote his first book Cook was a private member of the Woodrow Wilson Center s Board of Trustees, appointed to a six year term by the President George W Bush edit Doctor NovelistDr Cook s profession as a doctor has provided him with ideas and background for many of his novels In each of his novels, he strives to write about the issues at the forefront of current medical practiceTo date, he has explored issues such as organ donation, genetic engineering,fertility treatment, medical research funding, managed care, medical malpractice, drug research, drug pricing, specialty hospitals, stem cells, and organ transplantation Dr Cook has been remarked to have an uncanny ability to anticipate national controversy In an interview with DrCook, Stephen McDonald talked to him about his novel Shock Cook admits the timing of Shock was fortuitous I suppose that you could say that it s the most like Coma in that it deals with an issue that everybody seems to be concerned about, he says, I wrote this book to address the stem cell issue, which the public really doesn t know much about Besides entertaining readers, my main goal is to get people interested in some of these issues, because it s the public that ultimately really should decide which way we ought to go in something as that has enormous potential for treating disease and disability but touches up against the ethically problematic abortion issue Keeping his lab coat handy helps him turn our fear of doctors into bestsellers I joke that if my books stop selling, I can always fall back on brain surgery, he says But I am still very interested in being a doctor If I had to do it over again, I would still study medicine I think of myselfas a doctor who writes, rather than a writer who happens to be a doctor After books,he has come up with a diagnosis to explain why his medical thrillers remain so popular The main reason is, we all realize we are at risk We re all going to be patients sometime, he says You can write about great white sharks or haunted houses, and you can say I m not going into the ocean or I m not going in haunted houses, but you can t say you re n.

    Interesting topic, exciting storyline Not my favorite by Cook though It was okay.

    This book is the third medical thriller series of Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery The author Robin Cook is a physician and writer For those who believe that science and technology can radically change the world for good, this is sort of an eye opener The story line starts a bit slow, then becomes quite intriguing in the middle and then leads up to a rather unsatisfactory finish.Cook develops two parallel and intersecting plots about scientists in Equatorial Guinea who are frantically exp This book is the third medical thriller series of Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery The author Robin Cook is a physician and writer For those who believe that science and technology can radically change the world for good, this is sort of an eye opener The story line starts a bit slow, then becomes quite intriguing in the middle and then leads up to a rather unsatisfactory finish.Cook develops two parallel and intersecting plots about scientists in Equatorial Guinea who are frantically exploring the ethics of genetic engineering and medical examiners in New York who are stubbornly working on to determine the cause of death of a mysterious mobster corpse I found Cook s characters are well developed, his plot is original, and his narrative both humorous and suspenseful I particularly liked Kevin Marshall, the molecular biologist His character development was great Meanwhile there are some cons too All the given statements in the story are scientifically very sound except for the part where a medical examiner from New York would make a trip across the world to Africa sounds absurd to me Who even paid for his friends to travel with him all the way sounds ridiculous too PFinally, as the story jumps from New York and Africa, an adventure and mystery unfolds and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end However, as mentioned earlier the ending was quite unreal because the prologue ended abruptly

    Read this in a day, slowish start but picked up I didn t connect to the characters though, except for Warren I love his friendship with Jack.The ending was incredibly unsatisfactory though Maybe the numerous unanswered questions are answered in a later Robin Cook novel SPOILER ALERT AHEAD You never learn what happened with GenSys, or Kevin, Melanie or Candace Like cool, they don t die But what DO they do Did Kevin end up hooking up with one of them Both What happens when Tayl Read this in a day, slowish start but picked up I didn t connect to the characters though, except for Warren I love his friendship with Jack.The ending was incredibly unsatisfactory though Maybe the numerous unanswered questions are answered in a later Robin Cook novel SPOILER ALERT AHEAD You never learn what happened with GenSys, or Kevin, Melanie or Candace Like cool, they don t die But what DO they do Did Kevin end up hooking up with one of them Both What happens when Taylor Cabot learns the truth, as he surely had by the time the book ended hell, the epilogue takes place a week later , What happened to Siegfried Beltram the others left behind, do they start over or face prosecution somewhere AAAHHH, SO MUCH IS LEFT UNANSWERED

    The book starts off with a promising premise of a doctor worrying about his ethically horrifying invention in a darker, deserted part of Africa Parallel to it, the two famous pathologists Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery work on an intriguing, but almost clueless murder of a mobster These two parallel story lines unfold neatly, intertwining the characters in the process.Though the investigation of the two pathologists was awesome, it also faltered the pace of the story Cook stuffed an The book starts off with a promising premise of a doctor worrying about his ethically horrifying invention in a darker, deserted part of Africa Parallel to it, the two famous pathologists Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery work on an intriguing, but almost clueless murder of a mobster These two parallel story lines unfold neatly, intertwining the characters in the process.Though the investigation of the two pathologists was awesome, it also faltered the pace of the story Cook stuffed an excruciating amount of failed attempts at finding clues to further the investigation.Kevin had the best character development So did Jack, Laurie and Lou.On the other hand, some characters seemed forced in the story I tried really hard, but couldn t find a reason for Candace to exist, except to constantly agree with Melanie and act as a wonder object for the bonobos.Also, why the hell would Warren and Natalie land themselves in the whole mess without any motivation However, the most infuriating character development was of Melanie If I were Kevin, I would have shot her at some point Her teenage ish, stubborn bravery landed her and her buddies on hot waters several times But when the need arose, she cried out like a baby.The most disappointing part, however, is the climax It seemed like the author lost interest in the novel by the time he reached the end, and wrapped it up hastily The protagonists seemed to breezed through Cogo, where I had expected a lot of action to happen, given the presence of the bonobos Also, fates of a lot of characters went unexplained to the extent where I had a feeling that the novel was missing several pages in the end And it was an e book.Robin Cook s novels are always double edged swords for me Whenever I begin one, I am sure I will come across several gripping plot elements Accompanying that excitement, however, is a fear that the storyline will falter somewhere for no reason at all.I had better hopes for this novel, but it was only slightly better than my previously read disaster Mutation

    This had my on the edge the whole time with a story of murder, mafia, DNA manipulation, jungle adventure, etc HOWEVER, what the hell happened to the ending It was like riding a roller coaster and then the damn thing broke down near the end I still like this author and will read , but this ending, or lack thereof was like he realized it was getting a bit long and decided to end the story as economically as possible Thus, my 3 stars vs 4.

    Summary Chromosome 6 takes place in two totally different main settings There is a medical office in New York City, but there is also a medical research center, Gensys, in the town of Cogo, Equatorial Guinea, Africa In this research facility, the scientist are expierimenting with the extraction of the short arm of chromosome six After extracting the short arm of chromosome six, they would insert it into a bonobo, a ape like creature that is like humans DNA wise This process is used for org Summary Chromosome 6 takes place in two totally different main settings There is a medical office in New York City, but there is also a medical research center, Gensys, in the town of Cogo, Equatorial Guinea, Africa In this research facility, the scientist are expierimenting with the extraction of the short arm of chromosome six After extracting the short arm of chromosome six, they would insert it into a bonobo, a ape like creature that is like humans DNA wise This process is used for organ transplants the bonobos were isolated on a island The body will not reject the organs if there is a part of the original owner in it, in theory This idea ends up working, but there is a huge ethnic and religion problem with this topic so it is kept in Africa and kept quiet Although in Africa, there is still clients in America One of these clients was Carlo Franconi Franconi later dies, but there is a problem The researchers realize that if the autopsy shows that there was a transplant of the liver in this patient but the test show up the same, then they may catch on to something While this is going on, there is also another problem in Africa On the isolated island, the bonobos were making and using fire Kevin, one of the researchers, realizes this problem and investigates it Little did he know that he was getting himself into a lot of trouble Kevin believed that the short arm of chromosome 6 had human developmental traits This would really jeopardize the company of Gensys.Like Dislike I thought that this book was good because I am really starting to like the books with biology and chemistry Robin Cook does a good job on this book because realistically this kind of things could happen in the future with the advancement in technology recently I would recommend this book to almost anyone who is interested in future science or science in general I would not recommend this to people who do not like biology or science because if they don t like biology they probably won t be able to follow this book.Quote In the middle of the book the Kevin realizes that the bonobos must have been hiding a cave All at once the number 37 appeared but no blinking red light After a few moments, a prompt flashed onto the screen It said Animal not locatedthe program had indicated that seven of the bonobo doubles were unaccounted for. This is were he realizes that the bonobos were using the cave like a shelter I thought that this was significant because I think that this is when Kevin started to believe that the short arm of chromosome 6 really did have human developmental traits

    I had always enjoyed Robin Cook s books, but then I gave up on him His books just got so repetitive and predictable So it s been a long time, but I decided to give Chromosome 6 a try This book seemed a bit harder edged than the other Cook books I d read, with a very serious theme, and a respectful look at the relevant issues.There are two related stories going on One takes place in New York, where a mobster s death takes a strange turn during the autopsy The investigators stumble onto a rea I had always enjoyed Robin Cook s books, but then I gave up on him His books just got so repetitive and predictable So it s been a long time, but I decided to give Chromosome 6 a try This book seemed a bit harder edged than the other Cook books I d read, with a very serious theme, and a respectful look at the relevant issues.There are two related stories going on One takes place in New York, where a mobster s death takes a strange turn during the autopsy The investigators stumble onto a real mystery the victim had been the recipient of a liver transplant, yet there was no record of such an operation having been performed Further there is no evidence of anti rejection medication in the man s system Thus Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery returning characters from other Cook novels are drawn into something that ends up being much bigger than they could possibly imagine.The second story takes place in Africa Researchers there have developed a chromosome transfer process whereby chimp like animals called bonobos could have their genetic makeup altered Extremely wealthy people can pay to have a bonobo altered in such a way so that the animal s organs would be perfect clones of their own organs Thus they are perfect for transplants But, something else is going on It seems that altering the genetic code of the animals has changed them in ways most unexpected Researcher Kevin Marshall is starting to figure out what s happened to the animals, and he s terrified The two stories develop independently for most of the book The reader is usually let in on all of the secrets, even though everyone else is in the dark Towards the end, the stories collide as the New York team heads to Africa to get to the bottom of their autopsy mystery For the most part, the book was very exciting The stories develop quickly, and you never really know which way they re going to turn There are minimal subplots, very little distraction from the two main stories For my part, I really enjoyed the New York story Watching Jack and Laurie work together to solve the clues was so much fun The Africa story was a bit harder to follow, and a bitmundane, for the most part.I did not like how Cook handled the characters With very little development, I didn t feel like I got to know them at all And some of them were extremely annoying Especially the two women working with Kevin in Africa A nurse, and a genetic technician, you might expect two smart, strong women Nope I kept imaging two pre teens, giggling while passing notes in school That s basically the way these two air heads acted With barely one brain cell between them, and Kevin following them around like a puppy dog, it s a wonder the three them were able to accomplish anything.But the biggest disappointment in this book is the ending Or, lack thereof It s as if Cook suddenly realized his time was up, so he d better throw an ending together There was an epilogue, but it was the most incomplete one I d ever seen You d think that if you re going to bother writing an epilogue, you d tie up all of the stories and characters But Cook doesn t We re left with using our imagination to decide what ultimately happened to all of the characters.Overall, this was an exciting story that took a serious look at consequences Consequences of research gone too far And consequences of greed Read it, simply because the story is a good one But don t look for greatness it s not here.My Rating 2.5 5

    This was my first Robin Cook Book I had heard about it from my father who has read many of his books One of my friends, being a Robin Cook fan, suggested me to start with this one I loved the book, the story was fast paced and I felt like I was on an adventure ride filled with fun and excitement The book has two medical examiner s Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery I loved how the women were such badasses in this one There were points in this book where my heart stopped beating, thinking This was my first Robin Cook Book I had heard about it from my father who has read many of his books One of my friends, being a Robin Cook fan, suggested me to start with this one I loved the book, the story was fast paced and I felt like I was on an adventure ride filled with fun and excitement The book has two medical examiner s Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery I loved how the women were such badasses in this one There were points in this book where my heart stopped beating, thinking what would happen if they get caught The story was like an action packed movie I was imagining in my head I was skeptical at first because I thought the story would be too much medical sciency stuff and I wouldn t want to read about it, but I m glad to say I was pleased by the perfect blend of medical and thriller aspect Cook has cooked The characters are well written and I loved how some of them made the plot humorous at times The only issues I had was the plot felt a bit too unreal I don t think medical examiners from any part of the world must be having the time to travel like this and taking their friends alongwith them This made the plot a lil bit juvenile and resembled the friends from Famous Five going on an adventure Also, a facility which is illegally cloning and backed by gangsters would have the best possible security and it is not the case in this book which is also hard to believe His writing style was the saving grace, and I could ignore these points easily The one thing I couldn t ignore was the ending felt a bit abrupt Like I wanted to know what happens ahead After diving into the plot and generating interest, you can t keep me guessing I would ve preferredpages and a good ending Do pick this one up if you want to read a good thriller and are interested in applications of medical science not as boring as it sounds suspense

    This was actually a re read for me Kevin Marshall is a molecular biologist working in Equatorial Guinea He is able to manipulate Chromosome 6 of bonobos ape like creatures and replace with human DNA This allows for humans to create their own organ donors bonobos and then the organs are harvested when needed GenSys is funding this project and they don t really appear to be evilbut their on site managers are greedy and will do anything to keep the lucrative project going When Kevin see This was actually a re read for me Kevin Marshall is a molecular biologist working in Equatorial Guinea He is able to manipulate Chromosome 6 of bonobos ape like creatures and replace with human DNA This allows for humans to create their own organ donors bonobos and then the organs are harvested when needed GenSys is funding this project and they don t really appear to be evilbut their on site managers are greedy and will do anything to keep the lucrative project going When Kevin sees smoke on the isolated island where the bonobos are confined, he begins to wonder if the bonobos are developing human skills When he goes to the forbidden island with 2 female co workers, they find that the bonobos have language skills, fire making capabilities and opposable thumbs But will the trio live to tell
