Frank Herbert – The Eyes of Heisenberg | Review

Title: The Eyes of Heisenberg

Author: Frank Herbert

Category: Fiction

Page Count: 160

Rating: 3/5

There’s good and bad to this book, but for the most part it was just a little bit of a letdown. I think the problem is that when reading sci-fi, I tend to enjoy myself if the technology is fascinating, the ideas are profound or the characters are relatable. Here, I didn’t get any of that.

Still, Herbert is a decent enough writer, and I did at least find that the writing was pretty approachable. And I guess the actual ideas were cool, even if they weren’t explored as thoroughly as I was hoping.

It’s all about gene editing and is set in a world in which all babies can be specifically grown to avoid problems such as thyroid illnesses. There’s also a section of society that’s immortal, and Herbert looks at the baggage that comes with that.
