An excellent read Sep 9, 2005
What is it that makes you who you are? Genetics? Environment? Behavior? The image you have of yourself that you strive to live up to? In his thriller, I, Carlos, Casey Dorman combines breakneck action with the question - what would happen if your self-image was radically changed and you were not aware of the change? Dorman, a psychologist with extensive experience in neurology, has created a thinking person's thrill ride. The book can be enjoyed both for the adrenaline rush of the hunt for a would-be presidential assassin and for the fundamental questions it raises about what determines a person's identity. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout and gives you something to think about afterward.

There's a lot more to this book than meets the casual read. On the surface of it, it's an action-adventure thriller with some interesting sub-contexts, but the author is just playing with the cliches and does some interesting things with the expectations of the genre. It's an original take on a Sorceror's Apprentice riff with enough going off in original directions to keep it from formula -- fun stuff!
A fabulous thriller ! Mar 20, 2005
