I went back and reread part of Crisis thinking I missed something. Feel better I wasn't just ignorant. Does anyone else find his dialogue stilted? Do any real people really use such formal vocabulary and talk so unnaturallty to each other? Have read others, but this is my last. Waste of time to read a book and be left with an ending I can't understand.

Can anyone name the order in which Jack Stapleton appears in Cook's books? I'd love to be able to read them all in order. Thanks so much!

Intervention - I gave up reading after he started to trash altenative medicine and in particular chiropractors. The Medical Examiner thinks real healing arts are "voodoo", and DR. Cook spares no effort to help brainwash his readers into thinking the same. Just more medical establishment propaganda from a criminal industry that is the leading cause of death and bankruptcy and pain, is not allowed to cure anybody, is somehow arrogant beyond belief in spite of this, and spares no effort to suppress real healers. Then, he trashes the gnostics, the largest religion before Christ, who realized the evil that had invaded organized religion, which is why they have been erased from history methodically, except they couldn't suppress the Nag Hammadi, so now they have Dr. Cook out to trash them as "heretics" and who knows what else in the rest of the propaganda piece called Intervention. I couldn't keep reading, there was no point. Garbage.
Now I know to avoid this guy's other books, he's a real tool of evil.

I am glad to hear that others did not understand the ending of "Crisis". I have enjoyed all of Cook's other books, but I am lost on this one. I do not understand the ending at all! I listened to the book on disk, and thought I had missed something. I hope Mr Cook reads this and explains. It is like several chapters were missing!

I just finished reading Intervention. First I must say I liked the recurring characters of Laurie and Jack Stapleton. However the first part of the book was rather dry. I kept reading because I thought it would get better...it did'nt. I couldn't imagine how the two story lines connected and at the end of the book I found out how but it was somewhat of a let down as it was very predictable. Robin Cook has written some wonderful books. This wasn't one of them.

Naomi, I don't think anyone can explain the ending to you because it made NO sense. I doubt even Cook could explain it. Even if he plans a sequel to explain it, I won't be buying it. I don't waste my money on bad writing.

I did not understand the ending in Crisis.
Could someone explain the motive behind what was uncovered at the end of the book?
I have never had to have someone have to explain the ending of a book to me before.

i'v jst finished 'MINDBEND'. all that i want to say that it's plot is great...& all the characters quite do justice to their roll given..but actually what i want to say that the ending is pretty much guessable to the readers...that's what when you'v jst ended the book;you might say that oow! this was obvious..& another thing..is it possible that arolen is unaware of the fact that dr. smith is in hospital though adam took the disguise of dr. smith & went straight to the cruise...the main thing i want to ask is how can a person hide his own voice & imitate someone for a long time when it was really a challenge to him to remember even the person's name?? i'd like to have an opinion from the reader's viewpoint...as well as from the author.
