The Professor And The Suicide Girl

We rated this book:


In theory, the Cain Virus would be powerful enough to wipe out humanity. It would be engineered by a masterful Professor of Virology and be an exercise to prove “free will.” This became the Professor’s newfound passion after his life got thrown askew when his colleague stole his research and the subsequent lawsuit drained him financially.

With the assistance and support of an unlikely trio of friends, all equally obsessed with their own ideologies, he embarks on a challenge to create the most deadly virus. Along the way, he meets Diaphany, or The Suicide Girl, who becomes an unexpected wildcard.

Though it has an intriguing premise, interesting supporting characters, and a fascinating tie to mythology, the novel gets lost in the middle. Steering away from the virology hook, it instead constructs a romance between Dia and the Professor rather than keeping The Suicide Girl shrouded in mysterious appeal. The Professor and The Suicide Girl, amid its great prose, centers on rather complicated philosophies, resulting in a difficult story. Once the novel finds it center again, the intrigue picks up to ultimately answer: can the Professor create such a virus? And if he does, will he move to release it?
