Unlike a couple of other Greg bear books I've read, this book just didn't keep my attention. It seemed too slow moving and after reading the first 122 pages I still wasn't quite sure where the plot was going. I decided to stop reading this book and look for another.

I love Greg Bear's books. I've read each one, at least twice. Darwins Radio made me sit and think for a long time, then I had to read it again. I am extraordinarily disappointed in Vitals though. It was all I could do to get through the book. The book is darker than any of his other books (Blood Music included) with a muddled protagonist and almost one dimensional characters. The idea of the book is intriguing, but the execution is poor and the end just happens. It seems like the end of the book is an afterthought, almost as if he had written enough and had to wrap it up in 5 pages. Too bad since it could have been great. One book won't make me give up on his writing, since the rest has been so good, but I do hope his next book will be back to his usual.
Nothing personal
How can such a good writer as Bear produce such a loser? I envision it happened like this. Bear had the germ of the idea for Vitals and had perhaps even begun writing it when his agent or editor said "Hey, Greg. Darwin's Radio has become a mainstream best seller! See if you can repeat with this one, and you can make the BIG breakthrough! Action is where it's at, baby. Conspiracy! Keep it moving. Be sure to include some gruesome violence or torture, the more perverted the better." Perhaps against his better judgment (at least, I hope his judgmentis better than that), Bear tried to comply, but he writes SF, not thrillers, and he is clearly out of his element. Instead of another Darwin's Radio we got Michael Crichton meets John LeCarre on a bad day. This scenario explains a lot. Like why the first part of the book was pretty good and engaged our interest quickly. And why the second part fell down so badly; the plot became increasingly gimmicky and farfetched, and even the writing deteriorated. And finally it explains why the plot became so convoluted that even the author didn't know how to explain the puzzle and simply failed to do so.
This book will certainly NOT be a bestseller, so Bear may be expected to return to writing the good SF that readers like me have enjoyed for many years. However, the next time I think I'll wait before I invest my money in the hardback!
Secret conspiracies, plot twists and evil scientists. What more could you ask for? A couple of days after reading it, I had to go back and re-read bits of it, just to make sure I understood what was going on. There are a lot of wait-a-minute moments, where everything you've assumed up to that point gets yanked out from under you. A word of warning, though: If you like stories with a nice, neat, happily-ever-after ending, you'll probably have a problem with this book.
Nice read. Will have to look for more of this author
Vitals sets itself up as a novel about a scientist researching how to extend life through the use of certain bacteria, which is an interesting enough premise. Unfortunately, the book turned out to be a complete and utter mess, disappointing in so many ways. Hal Cousins is a scientist who seeks the favor of the super wealthy to fund his projects but things go haywire after his twin brother is murdered and his life begins to crumble around him. Ultimately the story becomes about this ancient scientist who was around in pre World War 2 Soviet Union and discovered bacteria that can mysteriously brainwash people and put them under his control. At least that’s what I think it was about, since it was so all over the place that I’m not even sure.

This novel is so utterly convoluted and hard to follow. It was almost as if the author was intentionally trying to confuse the reader, and after a while it caused me to lose interest. There is absolutely not a shred of believability to the novel. The premise is neat but the mechanics of the plot is groan inducing. The characterization in the novel is weak. There were loose plot points that were never resolved. It was solid for about the first quarter of the book before it became dreadful to read. I kept holding out hope that this novel would right itself and get better but that never came to fruition, and toward the end I just wanted it to be over. This was the first and last book by Greg Bear that I will read.
