Topic: Greg Iles' "The Footprints of God"

I just finished reading the subject book and suggest adding it to your reading. It explores consciousness in a manner I haven't seen in my reading experience, and brought to mind some possibilities in the evolution you begin to explore in Darwin's Radio. Footprints offers, as have you, a successor species to Homo Sapiens.

I must say that the current conclusion of Darwin's Radio leaves me hanging. What happens to the society with the new species? Where does the new species take human consciousness once they've integrated the changes? Do leaders emerge or does the new species not need leaders? I for one would welcome one if not two more books in the series.

Very best regards,

Thanks, Jake! I'll add FOOTPRINTS to my reading list. By current conclusion, I assume you mean DARWIN'S CHILDREN--which does address some of those questions, at least as a beginning. There's certainly room for more developments and elaborations.
