It took me a long while to finish this book which didn't unfold as excitingly or overwhelmingly as Michael Crichton’s earlier novels. And it doesn’t seem as finished. It’s full of fragmented storylines and too many characters in flat personalities which you can't even neither recognize them from one another nor remember what they’ve done in previous chapters.
However, I still very much enjoyed Michael Crichton's preaching as usual. And it's fun and thrilling to read all those episodes about the possibilities of where the genetic engineering will eventually lead us to.
It would be quite lonely being in this unethical real world without the company of Mr. Crichton. And I’m starting to miss him now.
Usually a Crichton book is worth 5 stars to me. Not this one but still a good read.
A brillian tale on genetics and ethics. Fast-paced and horrific, it gives some interesting insights regarding gene-patenting, gene-business and gene-profit.
A very different type of novel by Michael Crichton. It enters into a realm that can be quite scary considering the unknown possibilities or consequences. It is clear that whatever rules and regulations are introduced into society there will always be some who will want to experiment either for money,curiosity, or prestige. We have, however, entered a world of research never entered before and no amount of legislation will prevent some from trying the weird and extreme experiments. A good read....Continua
