    This story was a real surprise. Although much of the humor was keyed off local (Boulder Colorado) idiosyncrasies, the author took care to make it accessible to readers not familiar with the area. There was enough suspense in this satire to keep me in my chair for the whole read. Though often playful, it was edgy and sometimes serious concerning the subject of our desire for impervious health. As a previous reviewer noted, there is much good sound medical advise woven throughout the story. In addition to the ambitious plot, the author also managed to make the characters interesting and engaging. Lots of fun!

    I’ve never been to Boulder, CO, where this book is set, but recognize a lot of the attitudes and personalities from my city, Berkeley. This is a funny portrayal of the health-obsessed and self-obsessed. At times it seems to switch too frequently from one character to another leaving the characters a bit shallow. The satire sometimes comes off as overdone and cartoonish, but for the most part it is well done. I enjoyed this more than other free books I have downloaded.
