The Eradication Dilemma by William Wilkerson

The author sent me this book about a year ago to read and I kept passing it up until recently when I decided I had to know what it was about. Honestly, I judge books by their cover and this one just didn’t grab me for whatever reason. I’m glad I did finally read it though! I ended up enjoying it, but there were a few issues.

First let me say that I loved the plot and storyline. The author really went to a lot of pains to get a story together that is both intriguing and believable. This really was a well drawn out story. He’s able to weave in information that would have, frankly, put me to sleep if he hadn’t been able to entertain me while doing it.

The problem is that it feels disjointed at times. There’s some cohesiveness that is just missing, like it was written in chunks and not as one complete unit. I really think a content editor could have cleaned it up nicely. The other issue was character development. I feel like we skimmed over much of the characters and I didn’t feel myself drawn into any one person’s world. I didn’t feel any connection to the characters themselves.

Having said that, it’s still a good book and worth a read if you’re interested in science-y stuff with a drug twist.

Description:
