Is there anything you would change about this book?
I normally love Peter James books but this was just too Science Fiction for me. I thought it would deal with the social side of this subject but instead it because way out there.
Has Perfect People turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, because it wasn't quite the genre I presumed it to be when considering other titles by this author.
Do you think Perfect People needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No, the finish left it with nowhere to go with a follow-up

Was way to long and the parts about the cults could be cut out and not missed. At first the story pulled me in but by the ending I was more than ready for the really bad ending. I really disliked how the reader tried to sound like a male. Would not recommend.
I am a big Peter James fan so bought this and was interested as it looked diffrent from his Roy Grace books. Like the previous review I too found the narrator slighly irritating but because I was gripped and intruiged by the story I stuck with it! I am so glad I did as I thorougly enjoyed it and was hooked to the end. A really great story with a gentle warning about science messing with nature, there is always a price to pay!

I enjoyed this book but not as much as I though I would judging by most of the book reviews I read. The premise of the book was interesting and the story was reasonably well thought out. The narrator's natural voice was strong and clear but I wasn't too keen on her "male" voice.
My main criticisms of the book are as follows.
- I was left with too many unanswered questions by the end.
- Supporting characters appeared suddenly and disappeared just as quickly
- The conclusion of some plotlines fizzled out instead of reaching an explosive climax
- In some situations, the behaviour of John and Naomi seemed a bit out of character.
Despite this, the book kept me listening avidly until the end and I found the conclusion satisfying. This was the first book of Peter James that I listened to but unfortunately, it would not prompt me to rush into downloading some of his other work anytime soon.
