The Gardner by S. A. Bodeen

Book Description:

Published: May 25, 2010

Mason has never known his father, but longs to. All he has of him is a DVD of a man whose face is never seen, reading a children’s book. One day, on a whim, he plays the DVD for a group of comatose teens at the nursing home where his mother works. One of them, a beautiful girl, responds. Mason learns she is part of a horrible experiment intended to render teenagers into autotrophs—genetically engineered, self-sustaining life-forms who don’t need food or water to survive. And before he knows it, Mason is on the run with the girl, and wanted, dead or alive, by the mysterious mastermind of this gruesome plan, who is simply called the Gardener.

Will Mason be forced to destroy the thing he’s longed for most?

I have really picked some doozies lately, and not in a good way. First there was the Camera Killer and now this one.

This book wasn’t totally awful, but I found it boring and a bit too sci-fi for me. While some things were pretty far out there some things were very predictable-like The Gardner being Mason’s father. I could see it coming a mile away and the ending was just too perfect.

I did not enjoy this book.
