Reviews about Double Helix: A Novel (7):
As usual, Sigmund Brouwer has written an action packed book that is difficult to put down. The medical aspects of this are concerning and make you wonder about ethics. Somewhat thought provoking.
There were a lot of misspelled words and wrong pronunciation. Other than that I enjoyed the novel as much as when I read it as a teenager.
This is the first (and probably last) book I read from Sigmund Brouwer. It is just vile in so many places in graphic descriptions of torture, amputations, and other physical abuse. At many points I thought about just quiting, but I hoped it would have some redeeming value. I was wrong. I should have not continued reading. I found the story line poor, rather like a bad episode of a cheap sci-fi movie. The characters are unbelieveable and the ending is terrible. I found nothing uplifting or encouraging, or of value. It is just a disgusting book that should never have been published by Word. I was really disappointed. It would fit in much better into a horror genre with some secular publisher. The few references to God or spiritual matters seem tacked on and not appropriate. I wish I had not read this book.
Double Helix takes its title from the strand of DNA responsible for life. Seemingly taken right out of the headlines, this novel revolves around science experiments with DNA.
Slater Ellis is driving home one night when he almost runs into a naked boy. Page Stevens hears her husband commit suicide in the guest bathroom. When both start to investigate these events, they begin to uncover a big conspiracy neither would have dreamed that reaches from New Mexico to Florida to DC to New York. But will they find out the truth and stop the plan, or will they be killed trying?
Sigmund Brouwer is one of the best writers around. Here he spins a well crafted tale with believable characters. Almost no one is what they seem. An interesting devise is having each chapter represent a day. My only disappointment was the low spiritual level of the book. Having read many of his other works, I was expecting more of a spiritual aspect. This is not to say that he there wasn't a good moral. On the whole, however, I loved this book and would highly recommend it to anyone.
I was thoroughly enthralled with this book. It's written in an entertaining and intelligent way. This was my first experience with Sigmund Brouwer and I found him to be very creative. As I was reading I kept thinking to which of my friends I would first recommend it. I did not however, give this book five stars; as I finished the last page I was left with a sour taste in my mouth. Considering the topic of this novel I feel more morality & ethics needed to be included. The end had very little closure and unfortunately left me feeling disgraced to be part of the human race. I don't know anyone who would enjoy this feeling so I can only surmise that this was not Mr. Brouwer's intention. I gather from the other reviews that this "lack of ethics" aspect is not customary of this author so I'll be sure to give him another try. Afterall, he is a creative, fascinating storyteller.
Slater Ellis gets involved when a mysterious naked child with a number tattooed on his forehead assaults him in the desert. Paige Stephens gets involved after her husband's suicide when she begins unravelling cryptic suggestions that his company is involved with a sinister business of some kind. Their paths converge as they uncover the horrifying plans of Dr. Josef Van Klees, who operates the "Institute", a secret clinic for genetic experimentation and cloning that exploits fetal tissue from abortion clinics and refugees from third world countries. The story is fiction, but the evil behind the characters is very real, and the scientific possibilities Brouwer explores are closer to reality than speculation - making the story even more chilling.

One thing is clear: Sigmund Brouwer knows how to write a suspense thriller. While there are no obviously Christian themes evident anywhere in the book (Brouwer is a Christian), this is a very clean and riveting thriller story. It equals the very best of Robin Cook and other secular thriller writers, minus the moral garbage. If Brouwer can produce more books like this, I'll welcome seeing many more of his books on my shelves! Thumbs way up! -GODLY GADFLY
