THE SWARM by Frank Schatzing (Review)
I’ve just finished reading (rereading, actually) THE SWARM by Frank Schatzing. A fascinating book, packed with scientific information, and “swarming” with possibilities that are sometimes shocking while other times fascinating and entirely understandable, from a certain point of view. Since the book is fiction and based on scientific facts, stretched almost to the breaking point at times, I’d have to call it science fiction. Sort of. It’s exceptionally long–more than 1000 pages–but worth every page. If you aren’t the type reader who relishes scientific fact mixed with fiction, you probably wouldn’t care for it. But if you love being pushed to the edge with “What if…” premises, you might just like this one. I recommend it.
