What Robin Cook is reading

”One thing I’m reading again is Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I write similar types of books, except instead of involving the concept of good and evil in an almost religious way, I come at it from an ethical point of view. I’m also rereading Huxley’s Brave New World, which despite having been published in 1932 seems to have more significance today in terms of all the technology we have. For nonfiction, I’m reading A Hundred Billion Stars, an astronomy book by Mario Rigutti that is written for someone who has some scientific knowledge-I have a surgery background. I’m also reading Murder in the Senate by Sen. William Cohen and Thomas Allen. It’s written by insiders who know the dark side of things.”
