About the Book

The victim of an unspeakable crime, an infant rises to become a new type of superhero. Unlike any that have come before him, he is not a fanciful creation of animators, he is real.

So begins the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history. But where did his extraordinary intelligence come from?

As agents of corporate greed vie with rabid anti-Western radicals to destroy him, an obsessive government leader launches a bizarre covert mission to exploit his intellect. Yet Austin’s greatest fear is not of this world.

Aided by two exceptional women, one of whom will become his unlikely lover, Austin struggles against abandonment and betrayal. But the forces that oppose him are more powerful than even he can understand.

My Review

Miracle Man was not the science/medical thriller I expected.  I think I was expecting a heavy, medical / science fiction thriller when I picked up this series.  Instead, the author takes readers on a journey with twists and turns through the life of a brilliant man facing internal and external dilemmas.  A large part of the book is devoted to establishing Robert's character as a genius.  This development really allows readers to watch this character grow, change and respond to the world around him.  This novel does have a focus on medical science and the medical genius creating miracles--but, it is more of a lighter read than a science or medical textbook.  The author does a wonderful job of creating a story centered on an exceptional genius that average readers will understand and enjoy.

Miracle Man offers twists and surprises--and a life journey.  As readers follow the main character from his early childhood through adulthood, they follow his journey.  As Robert learns, experiences, grows, and changes as a man--the author incorporates real world greed, manipulation and dramatic ups and downs along the way to tell his story.  Much of the story is predictable, but, there are some developments along the way to surprise readers--and entice readers to move on to the next book in the series.

Would I recommend Miracle Man by William R. Leibowitz?  I truly enjoyed this novel--and plan to read the second novel in the series this week!.  I felt for the main character as he fought to use his genius for a noble purpose--and I look forward to following him onto his next, perhaps not so noble, journey.  Readers who enjoy reading about the gifted and finding life's purpose and talents--and who understand the greed and desire in the world to control gifted minds--will be intrigued by this novel. It is not a fast, action-packed thriller--but, was impossible to put down.  Miracle Man is a novel that flows from stage to stage of the character's life with ease and leaves the reader more than willing to follow the author's words to another book of the series.
