This is the first Robin Cook novel I have ever read. But because of his popularity and success, I expected more.The idea of the novel is pretty good. Black rocks fall from the sky. People pick them up and get sick. But instead of having the flu, they have been infected by an alien virus that is planning to take over the planet.But despite the good idea, the book isn't very good. The writing was not what I expected from such a successful author. I had to make myself finish reading this book, just because I hate to quit reading a book in the middle. I hoped it would get better but in the end I was disappointed.
