Interesting idea for a story

This is a debut novel of Ted Galdi. It is a thriller that follows a teenage genius as he does battle against certain officials within the United States government and a shady pharmaceutical company.

Life for Sean Malone is unusual. He is supposed to have an IQ of 250. He gained fame as an eleven year old by winning over a million dollars on Jeopardy. It was the mention of Jeopardy that caught my attention and made me decide to read the book. After I got the book I discovered it is classified as a YA Sci-Fi/Techno Thriller.

Elixir is well written with an interesting premise but I needed to completely suspend my scientific knowledge to follow the story. The action is fast pace and believable. The characterization within the story is somewhat lacking, only Sean seemed real. Although I could see when the story was attempting to hook the reader, it didn’t hook me. I was unable to forget everything I know about science to enjoy the story. I like to read an author’s debut book and often I find another author to follow. Roberto Scarlato narrated the book.

Good story. Ho hum reader.

Reader was monotone on narration. Most characters were believable. Story was good, but drug in the middle. Mr. Galdi got carried away on the epilogue -- long enough for another book. I won't call it YA but might appeal more to the late teens / early twenties set -- esp. of the female persuasion.
