    Author Kenneth Johnson?s book begins as an apocalyptic sci-fi story which quickly morphs into a horror novel before concluding with a sci-fi thriller ending. This book is a fast and entertaining ride, though not without a few speed bumps. Mr. Johnson has chosen to tell his tale in...

    Amazing story. Could easily explain the current political/societal stupidity, minus the novel's happy ending. So compelling, I might have finished it in a day but for the kindle's need to recharge. ...

    I was given this book for free with Netgalley for a fair and honest review. This was the first "oral history" style book that I've read, so I should preface the review with the fact that I didn't really enjoy that perspective. The story was a little bit "Armageddon" coupled with a ...

    There?s an old Cherokee parable that says we all have two wolves inside us: one is evil (anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, ego) and the other is good (joy, love, hope, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion). Which wolf wins? The one we feed. Johnson ...

    Overall not a bad book- I very much enjoyed the first portion, and was okay with the third. The second part- (view spoiler)[I am just getting so bored with every broken society deteriorating into fascists. Oddly, even with their new "superpowers" they didn't do anything worse than othe...

    There were times when I wondered where this was going. What starts out as a comet heading to Earth turns into a race to find a cure for a infection brought by the comet. The story line is very complex. The list of characters is very diverse and the story often changes points of view us...

    A page turning roller coaster of emotiokns and plot twists It took me a little while to warm up to this book, but once I did I couldn't put it down. The story drew me in and I made an emotional connection to the story and characters. I was upset and worried when things seemed to be ...

    Earth-destroying meteor headed to earth. Earth tries to destroy meteor but succeeds only into blowing it into fragments. These fragments each contain the 'Darwin Variant'. Areas where each land find plants suddenly growing fruit and vegetables 10 times normal size. Each person partakin...

    A New World? A new type of dystopian novel. A comet headed for Earth is blasted before it strikes, but a path of meteorites leave changes to plants, animals, and humans. Can the aggression be stopped or are we headed for a new world? Scary book with a lot of science involved and sc...

    Great premise, needs better character development Pretty good premise for a book, but too many perspectives some of them only a paragraph long. It was hard to get too know the characters. Would have been a 5 star with better character development. The idea of a virus coming from spa...

    I won this through a book give away. It is an apocalyptic sci-fi story about a comet on a collision course with Earth and how ordinary people respond to extraordinary circumstances. Mr. Johnson makes the idea of the story very real and possible. But I found the ending a sappy for my t...

    Interesting story, distracting execution Applaud the author?s attempt to use multiple first person POV characters. Good story, but the ambitious effort to bring a unique approach created some pacing issues and a distracting and sometimes inconsistent transitions. Overall it was OK...

    Thanks to Netgalley, who provided an advance copy of this novel, in exchange for an honest book review. As a lover of Science Fiction I at first found the concept interesting but it really didn't settle well for me, but then it was different, i love to read so I worked my way throug...

    BRILLIANT! Kenneth Johnson delivers another mind-blowing story! I couldn't wait to read this after devouring his Man of Legends last year. Hope both stories are made into films ... please! ...

    Intriguing Storyline This was an interesting read, and wasn?t terribly predictable, like so many books. I wish (SMALL SPOILER) that the AB negative had not been infected, so a sequel could have been written. ...

    Finally. Something optimistic. Really enjoyed this one. Read a bunch. Listened a bunch. Very entertaining. Good characters. Great premise. Loved his book Man of Legends. Knew I wasn?t going to be disappointed. Great job. ...

    Unique story telling. This book was written entirely in an interview manner. Each character tells his or her experience to a documentarian. Very unique. Sometimes slow moving, but overall worth the read. ...

    Solid Good book. I liked how the story developed from each character's point of view. If Preston & Child and Dan Brown are your style, you are sure to like this book. ...

    Read for NetGalley ...

    Wow, what a book! I would like to give this book ten stars of I could. It is incredibly well written and action packed. ...

    Just lovely While the story may have wandered a bit, the path led the reader along a compelling trail. One of the best endings I've read in a long time . ...

    Good Good read. Has some unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed it. Didn?t know this guy produced the six million dollar man. ...

    Wow...i did not see that coming I absolutely love Man of Legend, so I was really pumped for this book. Johnson does not disappoint. This book weaves one hell of a tale ...

    Author Kenneth Johnson?s book begins as an apocalyptic sci-fi story which quickly morphs into a horror novel before concluding with a sci-fi thriller ending. This book is a fast and entertaining ride, though not without a few speed bumps. Mr. Johnson has chosen to tell his tale in...

    Amazing story. Could easily explain the current political/societal stupidity, minus the novel's happy ending. So compelling, I might have finished it in a day but for the kindle's need to recharge. ...

    I received a copy of The Darwin Variant through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. The Darwin Variant is described as a ?day-after-tomorrow thriller? full of catastrophe and danger. I found it to be reminiscent of a lot of science fiction already out there, w...

    I really loved this book. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I can really see this being turned into a series on tv. I would definitely be watching. ...

    I was given this book for free with Netgalley for a fair and honest review. This was the first "oral history" style book that I've read, so I should preface the review with the fact that I didn't really enjoy that perspective. The story was a little bit "Armageddon" coupled with a ...

    Overall not a bad book- I very much enjoyed the first portion, and was okay with the third. The second part- (view spoiler)[I am just getting so bored with every broken society deteriorating into fascists. Oddly, even with their new "superpowers" they didn't do anything worse than othe...

    A page turning roller coaster of emotiokns and plot twists It took me a little while to warm up to this book, but once I did I couldn't put it down. The story drew me in and I made an emotional connection to the story and characters. I was upset and worried when things seemed to be ...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. The Darwin Variant is a blend of sci fi, horror, and thriller that re imagines a world where the Earth has a close call with a comet and believes themselves to be in the clear only to be found that it is infected w...

    The first 90% of this book is a page turner. Light, good entertainment. The documentary style of telling the story ? through multiple characters and reports ? works well. I have only one big and one smaller issue with this part. The big one is a clichéd, unrealistic description...

    Overall not a bad book- I very much enjoyed the first portion, and was okay with the third. The second part- (view spoiler)[I am just getting so bored with every broken society deteriorating into fascists. Oddly, even with their new "superpowers" they didn't do anything worse than othe...

    A page turning roller coaster of emotiokns and plot twists It took me a little while to warm up to this book, but once I did I couldn't put it down. The story drew me in and I made an emotional connection to the story and characters. I was upset and worried when things seemed to be ...

    A New World? A new type of dystopian novel. A comet headed for Earth is blasted before it strikes, but a path of meteorites leave changes to plants, animals, and humans. Can the aggression be stopped or are we headed for a new world? Scary book with a lot of science involved and sc...

    Great premise, needs better character development Pretty good premise for a book, but too many perspectives some of them only a paragraph long. It was hard to get too know the characters. Would have been a 5 star with better character development. The idea of a virus coming from spa...

    I won this through a book give away. It is an apocalyptic sci-fi story about a comet on a collision course with Earth and how ordinary people respond to extraordinary circumstances. Mr. Johnson makes the idea of the story very real and possible. But I found the ending a sappy for my t...

    Interesting story, distracting execution Applaud the author?s attempt to use multiple first person POV characters. Good story, but the ambitious effort to bring a unique approach created some pacing issues and a distracting and sometimes inconsistent transitions. Overall it was OK...

    Thanks to Netgalley, who provided an advance copy of this novel, in exchange for an honest book review. As a lover of Science Fiction I at first found the concept interesting but it really didn't settle well for me, but then it was different, i love to read so I worked my way throug...

    BRILLIANT! Kenneth Johnson delivers another mind-blowing story! I couldn't wait to read this after devouring his Man of Legends last year. Hope both stories are made into films ... please! ...

    Intriguing Storyline This was an interesting read, and wasn?t terribly predictable, like so many books. I wish (SMALL SPOILER) that the AB negative had not been infected, so a sequel could have been written. ...

    Finally. Something optimistic. Really enjoyed this one. Read a bunch. Listened a bunch. Very entertaining. Good characters. Great premise. Loved his book Man of Legends. Knew I wasn?t going to be disappointed. Great job. ...

    Unique story telling. This book was written entirely in an interview manner. Each character tells his or her experience to a documentarian. Very unique. Sometimes slow moving, but overall worth the read. ...

    Solid Good book. I liked how the story developed from each character's point of view. If Preston & Child and Dan Brown are your style, you are sure to like this book. ...

    Read for NetGalley ...

    Wow, what a book! I would like to give this book ten stars of I could. It is incredibly well written and action packed. ...

    Just lovely While the story may have wandered a bit, the path led the reader along a compelling trail. One of the best endings I've read in a long time . ...

    Good Good read. Has some unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed it. Didn?t know this guy produced the six million dollar man. ...

    Wow...i did not see that coming I absolutely love Man of Legend, so I was really pumped for this book. Johnson does not disappoint. This book weaves one hell of a tale ...

    Fascinating Fast paced novel, which was truly novel( new). All of the characters were fleshed out and engaging. Best by this author imho ...

    Author Kenneth Johnson?s book begins as an apocalyptic sci-fi story which quickly morphs into a horror novel before concluding with a sci-fi thriller ending. This book is a fast and entertaining ride, though not without a few speed bumps. Mr. Johnson has chosen to tell his tale in...

    Amazing story. Could easily explain the current political/societal stupidity, minus the novel's happy ending. So compelling, I might have finished it in a day but for the kindle's need to recharge. ...

    I received a copy of The Darwin Variant through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. The Darwin Variant is described as a ?day-after-tomorrow thriller? full of catastrophe and danger. I found it to be reminiscent of a lot of science fiction already out there, w...

    https://koeur.wordpress.com/2018/02/2... Publishing Date: June 2018 ISBN:9781503954113 Genre: SciFi Rating: DNF Publisher?s Description: When the icy shards of a rogue comet fall to Earth, they bring an unknown virus that accelerates evolution to extremes. Suddenly, in...

    I really loved this book. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I can really see this being turned into a series on tv. I would definitely be watching. ...

    I was given this book for free with Netgalley for a fair and honest review. This was the first "oral history" style book that I've read, so I should preface the review with the fact that I didn't really enjoy that perspective. The story was a little bit "Armageddon" coupled with a ...

    There?s an old Cherokee parable that says we all have two wolves inside us: one is evil (anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, ego) and the other is good (joy, love, hope, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion). Which wolf wins? The one we feed. Johnson ...

    Thank you to 47North and NetGalley for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is written as a documentary of a past event. We begin this book with the discovery of a meteor in a direct collision course with Earth. Global cooperation is needed to fin...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. The Darwin Variant is a blend of sci fi, horror, and thriller that re imagines a world where the Earth has a close call with a comet and believes themselves to be in the clear only to be found that it is infected w...

    The first 90% of this book is a page turner. Light, good entertainment. The documentary style of telling the story ? through multiple characters and reports ? works well. I have only one big and one smaller issue with this part. The big one is a clichéd, unrealistic description...

    Overall not a bad book- I very much enjoyed the first portion, and was okay with the third. The second part- (view spoiler)[I am just getting so bored with every broken society deteriorating into fascists. Oddly, even with their new "superpowers" they didn't do anything worse than othe...

    There were times when I wondered where this was going. What starts out as a comet heading to Earth turns into a race to find a cure for a infection brought by the comet. The story line is very complex. The list of characters is very diverse and the story often changes points of view us...

    A page turning roller coaster of emotiokns and plot twists It took me a little while to warm up to this book, but once I did I couldn't put it down. The story drew me in and I made an emotional connection to the story and characters. I was upset and worried when things seemed to be ...

    Earth-destroying meteor headed to earth. Earth tries to destroy meteor but succeeds only into blowing it into fragments. These fragments each contain the 'Darwin Variant'. Areas where each land find plants suddenly growing fruit and vegetables 10 times normal size. Each person partakin...

    A New World? A new type of dystopian novel. A comet headed for Earth is blasted before it strikes, but a path of meteorites leave changes to plants, animals, and humans. Can the aggression be stopped or are we headed for a new world? Scary book with a lot of science involved and sc...

    Great premise, needs better character development Pretty good premise for a book, but too many perspectives some of them only a paragraph long. It was hard to get too know the characters. Would have been a 5 star with better character development. The idea of a virus coming from spa...

    I won this through a book give away. It is an apocalyptic sci-fi story about a comet on a collision course with Earth and how ordinary people respond to extraordinary circumstances. Mr. Johnson makes the idea of the story very real and possible. But I found the ending a sappy for my t...

    Interesting story, distracting execution Applaud the author?s attempt to use multiple first person POV characters. Good story, but the ambitious effort to bring a unique approach created some pacing issues and a distracting and sometimes inconsistent transitions. Overall it was OK...

    Thanks to Netgalley, who provided an advance copy of this novel, in exchange for an honest book review. As a lover of Science Fiction I at first found the concept interesting but it really didn't settle well for me, but then it was different, i love to read so I worked my way throug...

    BRILLIANT! Kenneth Johnson delivers another mind-blowing story! I couldn't wait to read this after devouring his Man of Legends last year. Hope both stories are made into films ... please! ...

    Intriguing Storyline This was an interesting read, and wasn?t terribly predictable, like so many books. I wish (SMALL SPOILER) that the AB negative had not been infected, so a sequel could have been written. ...

    Finally. Something optimistic. Really enjoyed this one. Read a bunch. Listened a bunch. Very entertaining. Good characters. Great premise. Loved his book Man of Legends. Knew I wasn?t going to be disappointed. Great job. ...

    Unique story telling. This book was written entirely in an interview manner. Each character tells his or her experience to a documentarian. Very unique. Sometimes slow moving, but overall worth the read. ...

    Solid Good book. I liked how the story developed from each character's point of view. If Preston & Child and Dan Brown are your style, you are sure to like this book. ...

    Read for NetGalley ...

    Wow, what a book! I would like to give this book ten stars of I could. It is incredibly well written and action packed. ...

    Just lovely While the story may have wandered a bit, the path led the reader along a compelling trail. One of the best endings I've read in a long time . ...

    Good Good read. Has some unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed it. Didn?t know this guy produced the six million dollar man. ...
