I Was Whelmed By Biohack (Not Over or Under)
3 out of 5 stars
Biohack by JD Lasica was one of those books that I got excited when I saw the cover. Once I started to get into the book I wasn’t over or underwhelmed. I was just… whelmed, which I don’t think is a real word.
There was something about it that tickled my fancy but also some parts of it (and maybe a little bit caused by the narration) that weren’t perfect.
I can tell that Lasica did his research while prepping this book. The two main parts split between hacking and genetics. And I didn’t feel like any of it was too “far out” and some of it was like “oh yeah, that makes sense”. A cool concept for a near future book for sure.
Sometimes when there are a lot of characters in a book there can be too many. I think that Biohack flirted the line with this from time to time.
Overall, it was a book that I enjoyed but I didn’t love. I was “whelmed” by it and I would be potentially interested in diving into this world in the near future.

What would you give for a second chance?
Valerie Ramirez, a special ed teacher still haunted by her toddler’s drowning accident, faces a fateful decision when she’s admitted into an exclusive program run by a mysterious biotech company.
Kaden Baker, an elite hacker who dabbles in covert ops, finds her life turned upside down when she discovers her parents turn out to be imposters. Where does she come from? Who’s been financing her high-stakes secret missions?
The answers lead back to the same sinister biotech firm. As Kaden and Valerie become allies, they make one startling discovery after another about the company’s dark intentions. But each step closer to the truth puts their lives at greater risk.
The stakes couldn’t be higher - for Kaden’s freedom, for Valerie’s fate, and for the future direction of humanity itself.
Get it now! Biohack is a roller-coaster thrill ride that appeals to both the head and the heart - with a shocking twist you won't see coming.
Perfect for fans of the late, great Michael Crichton's science thrillers and fans of Lee Child, A.G. Riddle, and Tim Tigner.
