The Genetics Secret
That's what this should be called: Genetics Secret, not Genesis Secret. First of all, its scope is just too ambitious for a first work of fiction. It always amazes me when a person or character who purports to be agnostic/atheist (as does the main character Rob Luttrell) ends up spouting an alternate explanation to religions that have been honed over centuries. And in this case it tries to offer an alternate explanation for history, with the "north men" being the genetic bogies. As an alternative to other tried (whether true or not) explanations, it doesn't stand up very well, in my opinion. It got as "preachy" as an areligious explanation can get toward the end and is more akin to science fiction in its "genetic explanations" for history and life on all continents. Eyeroll is all I can say in response. Yes, I listened alllllllll the way through the gruesome tortures that end up being attributed to the genetics of the usual social suspects. The only reason I kept listening was the melodic voice of the narrator. Hopefully, I can find some better material narrated by him ... this one I definitely canNOT recommend.
