Summary:

MIRACLE MAN by William R. Leibowitz has been unanimously heralded by reviewers and readers. With numerous 5 Star ratings in the United States and overseas, and WINNER OF A NATIONAL "BEST THRILLER" AWARD, the enthusiasm for this unique novel has been overwhelming.

MIRACLE MAN is a medical/conspiracy/psychological thriller that explores extraordinary genius, Big Pharma corruption, CIA machinations, metaphysical forces, and one man's tireless quest at terrible cost to validate his life.

---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 and why do so many want to destroy him? 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. Robert James Austin is REVERED by many and REVILED by some. But none can doubt that he is REMARKABLE.

Characters:

For me it was a bit difficult in keeping up with the characters' and their roles, especially when it came to specialty doctors. Austin is the main character who comes from a tragic background and gets fostered and adopted by a loving family. He is a genius far surpassing the greatest geniuses so to speak. He is very compassionate and tends to be hard on himself, expecting more from himself than others. In beginning there are his foster parents who are loving and made their life dedication to give children love. There are also numerous doctors and teachers who were with Austin through every step of the way, as well as the bad guys who come from pharmacy and care more for making money rather than safety of people. Towards the end there is also Bobby's personal assistant and best of friends, Susan and her partner as well as Christina who is capable of helping Bobby when others cannot.

Theme:

Everyone is a treasure

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from what seems to be everyone's point of view, and its chronological rather than something that jumps back and forth between two separate time periods, and yes the story is richly detailed. The plot is more about Bobby Austin's beginnings life and its a big setup for the second novel. Aside from getting to know Bobby Austin and just going with him through his life from childhood to late adult stage and witnessing his character development, there is almost really nothing that could constitute the story as a thriller.

Opinion:

So I'm almost done with the second novel in the Miracle Man Series, therefore my rating is highly influenced by the AUSTIN PARADOX, which I'm enjoying a great deal. To be honest this particular book is more like 3.5 rather than 4 stars, but I tend to round up, so it's four stars. I really enjoyed the concept of the story and towards the ending I feel that the story really improved, especially the bomb that the author presents, which leaves you quite hungry for the next sequel. Aside from that, I'm not sure that thriller would be the right descriptor for it because I felt that in this book Robert "Bobby" Austin was establishing his roots,  and the issues that were brought up with him weren't really delved like I thought they would be. (For example, little to nothing is revealed about his biological family.) But still, its a necessary read to continue down the excellent sequel. In an odd way the theme of this book is quite similar to my favorite Christopher Pike book, The Whisper of Death.
