12. Darwin's Radio - Greg Bear

Look! An actual paper book got finished! My reading time is very limited right now, but I'm still making a little progress.

This book puts forward the idea the evolution can sometimes make sudden jumps forward (via a retrovirus create/released from our own DNA). Heavy on the science (in a good way - though complete with a glossary), and set in basically modern times. Greg Bear does a good job exploring the various reactions from individuals, corporations, and governments as the virus appears and changes.
