The Mother Code was a challenging read for me Stivers is a Silicon Valley biochemist and, I have to say, this book feels like it was written by a Silicon Valley biochemist Which I know will be a huge plus for many readers But, unfortunately, some of the jargon went straight over my head and a couple of times I did pause and wonder if I should continu

    Chalk it up to bad timing I was so excited to read this book since I first heard about it Then came Covid 19 I d put this book off long enough and knew I had to try But honestly it was a struggle to read about a biological agent that can spread and kill No matter how dissimilar the book was to our reality, at that point my anxiety was spiking and I knew it was impossible to find any enjoyment going forward.I m an RN seeing this virus close u

    Wow, The Mother Code was a bit frightening to read right now both because it includes a pandemic and because it felt so real I m not a regular reader of science fiction, so some of the technology and terminology was a little beyond me, but that didn t keep me from being engaged in the story In the future, the children are engineered and have robots for mothers It s thought provoking and well paced Overall, I m grateful I gave sci fi a try with thi

    This book was not what I was expecting It was a bittechnical than I expected and I wasn t really able to follow along very well I think people who areinto science fiction would be a better audience than myself I wasn t sure on some terms and felt that I couldn t follow along enough to finish the book.
