Greg Bear's fiction ingeniously combines cutting-edge science and unforgettable characters. It has won multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards and choruses of critical acclaim. Now, with Darwin's Radio, Bear creates a nonstop thriller swirling with provocative ideas about the next step of human evolution. In a cave high in the Alps, a renegade anthropologist discovers a frozen Neanderthal couple-with a Homo sapiens baby. Meanwhile, in southern Russia, the U.N. investigation of a mysterious mass grave is cut short. One of the investigators, molecular biologist Kaye Lang, returns home to the U.S. to learn that her theory on human retroviruses has been verified with the discovery of SHEVA, a virus that has slept in our DNA for millions of years and is now waking up. How are these seemingly disparate events connected? Kaye Lang and her colleagues must race against a genetic time bomb to find out. Darwin's Radio pulses with intelligent speculation, international adventure, and political intrigue as it explores timeless human themes. George Guidall's masterful performance heightens the excitement and keeps you enthralled until the final fascinating word.

Professional reviews

"Is evolution a gradual process or a specific, identifiable event? Scientists Kaye Lang and Mitch Raefelson suspect the latter, and they prove their theories by giving birth to one of the new humans, and find their own genetics changed through the process. George Guidall both races and lingers over the complex and suspenseful tale of genetic research as if he had a doctorate in molecular biology. His obvious enthusiasm for the text manifests itself in a riveting performance encompassing scientific theory and the requisite romance. His characters, while subtle, are clearly distinguishable from one another. Pacing and diction are flawless. Despite the disappointing end of the story itself, the performance shines. R.P.L.
