I thoroughly loved this book Reading it was like watching one long episode of The X Files Mezrich got the characters spot on and as the pace quickened, I couldn t put the book down Very good and a definite must for any X Phile out there. I love the X Files but I know when I read a novel about Agents Mulder and Scully certain things will occur They will attain no real growth as characters by the end of the book They will have obtained no hard evidence to support whatever investigation they are involved in They will emerge unscathed from whatever peril they face All that is because this type of series is all about hitting the reset button so you can come back for another equally thrilling and eerily similar adventure later I love the X Files but I know when I read a novel about Agents Mulder and Scully certain things will occur They will attain no real growth as characters by the end of the book They will have obtained no hard evidence to support whatever investigation they are involved in They will emerge unscathed from whatever peril they face All that is because this type of series is all about hitting the reset button so you can come back for another equally thrilling and eerily similar adventure later What works in series television works in series fiction, right Skin is the last of six original X Files novels released during the early seasons of the program I honestly did not know it existed until I stumbled upon it for a quarter recently I am happy to say I got my money s worth the novel reads like a really good episode of the show without any of the budget constraints that sometimes limited it Skin follows the formula I laid out above but since I am such a big fan of the series I will note my gripes but tell you the truth I enjoyed the book nonetheless It really took me back, in a good way, plus author Ben Mezrich peppers things up not only with some good turns of phrase but also with some interesting plot twists I think if you remain an X Files fan, as I do, you ll like this little trip down memory lane I LOVE The X Files I LOVE books Imagine my glee when I found out that those really cheap kids books were not the only X Files novels out there, but there were in fact new stories featuring Mulder and Scully for adults too This was not disappointing in the slightest, and it really did feel like an episode of the TV series admittedly it would probably have been a film as a higher budget would have been needed to make this in to an episode. For the first two thirds of its 300 pages, SKIN is the best TV tie in novel I ve ever read Near the end, though, it stumbles a bit and ultimately has to settle for being ONE of the best IMHO The medical info throughout the story was so detailed and completely legit that I suspected author Ben Mezrich to have attended medical school at some point before launching his writing career Having just read his bio on Wikipedia, I see that I was mistaken Major props for faking it so convincingly W For the first two thirds of its 300 pages, SKIN is the best TV tie in novel I ve ever read Near the end, though, it stumbles a bit and ultimately has to settle for being ONE of the best IMHO The medical info throughout the story was so detailed and completely legit that I suspected author Ben Mezrich to have attended medical school at some point before launching his writing career Having just read his bio on Wikipedia, I see that I was mistaken Major props for faking it so convincingly What s evenimpressive is that Mezrich wrote this while still less than 30 years old I mean, heck, I m 31, and the best thing I ve ever written is probably this book review My only major beef with this book is one truly awful scene in which the bad guys apparently taking their cues from the villains on that old 1960 s BATMAN TV show hook Mulder up to a diabolical death machine and then confidently exit the building without even posting so much as a single guard to make sure that Mulder s death goes off without a hitch And if such laziness on Mezrich s part weren t bad enough, Mezrich compounds his authorial sin by resorting to a DUES EX MACHINA in order to allow for Mulder s escape Oh, and did I mention that the bad guys keep their secret files in that very same room stored in actual file cabinets Andguess what the cabinets aren t even locked Apart from this scene, though, Mezrich has crafted a novel that does total justice to the spirit and intelligence of the TV series my all time favorite, btw I ve now read all the X Files novels save for one, and SKIN is definitely the pick of the litter This is the first X Files book I ve ever read, and it was pretty decent I wish it had a creepier monster, and it was missing the banter between Mulder and Scully that I love so much But it was written well enough to keep my interest.
