Review: The Goodness Gene

User Review  - Keily Rivero - Goodreads

I loved this book! The themes were impressive, heart wrenching and thought provoking. This futuristic society is haunting and it is a cautionary tale of the terrible road technology could lead us down. Read full review

Review: The Goodness Gene

User Review  - Gina Durst - Goodreads
