Many of the words especially from the healing center in the beginning are duplicated exactly from "Melted for the Lion". Only the names have been changed. Even the main character's name is rhyming with the other book's main character--Hannah in this book was Savannah in the other. I know that this author can and has written good storylines--in fact "Melted for the Lion" with it's secondary character Veronica is much more complex and therefore interesting. I am disappointed.
What disappointed you about The LION Gene?
That I actually paid for this book. It is nearly an exact copy of another book she wrote but she changed the names and occupation and titles of things. Like watching a James Bond move and they change the characters and names of place but it is the same movie.
Has The LION Gene put you off other books in this genre?
No but has put me off the author. It is cheating to do what she did.
What didn’t you like about Charlie Boswell’s performance?
His voice is great and was much better than the female who was performing her books
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The LION Gene?
I would have told the author to go back to the drawing board and actually right a new book
Any additional comments?
I would like a credit for this book. I can't actually believe that audible did not know this was a copy of another book the author wrote. The Wolf Gene is an exact copy of another book of hers as well with slight details changed. I would like a credit on that book as well.
