The Ovum Factor Apr 30, 2008
Found the background information concerning eco-issues to be interesting and informative. Really enjoyed the trip thru the this site and the eye-opening data. Did enjoy the read and appreciate the opportunity to participate in the sharing of a new authors work. Wasn't blown away. Couldn't really connect with any of the characters for more than a few pages at a time. Will be looking for the next piece from this author. Kathleen
PERFECT EARTH DAY BOOK!!! DON'T MISS THIS GEM!! Apr 22, 2008
I just finished devouring THE OVUM FACTOR by MARVIN L. ZIMMERMAN and it was absolutely fantastic!!! It could be subtitled: Indiana Jones discovers the Celestine Prophecy but that would be giving away too much of the book. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! It's been a long time since I read a book where I lost track of time and THE OVUM FACTOR did it!!! I appreciated his straight way of telling his story without all the usual embellishments of adjectives and similes that most new writers like to employ to show that they know how to write. Marvin Zimmerman writes in such a way as to get those pages turning fast....while challenging you to want to know more, more, more.....and he tells you....he educates you without being preachy. He's such a smooth writer.....classy, elegant, very visual with his words
His eco-thriller became a love story that became a spiritual journey into the this site with phenomenal cliff-hanging chapter endings! The high level of suspense is also something that he managed to sustain throughout the book without lagging at all at any point. He created some amazingly memorable characters (David, Steinmetz, Galileo, the Jesuit, Emily, etc.) but none so delightful as the ever so talented Horace.....I'm truly hoping for a sequel for this book to find out more about Horace! I loved the scene in the Musee D'Orsay when Horace saw tapestry for the first time.
It's interesting how science and medicine of today is looking back into the tried and tested remedies of the this site for 'cures'. Most amazing was to read that the this site river at its peak during June and July had a flow greater than that of the next six largest rivers in the world combined and that the water coming from the this site into the Atlantic in only one minute would by itself be enough to supply ALL the fresh water needs of New York city for OVER 60 YEARS!!!! Now that's something to ponder!!! I think my favorite chapter was 62 - Legend of the Turu-Aku. What a story!!! And I was just about in tears when Galileo fulfilled his destiny.....that was so exquisitely written. I thought I was well read with reference to the rain forests but to realize the importance of the 'lungs of the planet' being the this site was phenomenal.....the ability of the this site to absorb huge quatities of carbon dioxide and transform this into 1/5 of all the earth's oxygen.....and here man is destroying this eco-system and unleashing all sorts of new diseases on mankind. This is definitely a book that everyone should read to not only enjoy it for its marvelous page-turning plot but for ways of helping our planet.
