Reviews of Donovan's Brain (1942)

Review by cthulhu99 (2007-02-25)
This seems to be a forgotten classic. I stumbled across it and found that it was very entertaining. The first twenty pages or so were slow, becuase they were filled with medical jargon that made me take my time. After that portion of the book, it read very quickly and like any 1940s to 1950s era 'science gone wrong' stories, it had lessons against meddling with things that humankind should not meddle with.
