Format: Paperback
This was a novel ahead of its time examining an issue that is becoming more relevant with each passing year. The basic plot is a workplace dispute over the behaviour of a female manager towards her male subordinate. She claims he sexually assaulted her; he claims she made a sexual advance towards him.

At the time, Crichton raised an issue that touched his friends/family and made him re-examine what he had learnt about sexual power. The screen play that was written for the subsequent film is a slick and authentic articulation of the book.

At the same time, the characterisation is a bit clunky and simplistic. The plot might have been more compelling if you did not know in the advance that the woman was lying. The insights and debate might have been more thought provoking if the female lead is less of a pantomime villain. Crichton claims that 'sexual harassment is about power'. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In practice, it can also be about misunderstanding, rejection and punishment (See "Emotion, Seduction and Initimacy" or "The Myth of Male Power" for extensive scholarly debate on this issue). A more interesting angle - one amply explored through this story - is that false accusations are about power too.

If I had read this book when it was first out in 1994 I would probably have given it 5 stars. It does seem a bit dated six years on but is still a good read. It is fast-paced - the whole book only covers four (very hectic) days - easy to read but as usual I would recommend that you read the book before you watch the movie. Very enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
Crichton's plot set in the PC (politically correct in this case) world of corporate high tech America grabbed me from the start. The technical and social issues essential to the plot now feel somewhat dated. Never the less I enjoyed it.

Format: Paperback
The book is a wonderful expose of sexual harassment by examining it from an unconventional vantage point. This serious issue does at first look different when a man is the accuser against a female. But this refreshing portrayal produces a first rate look at the problem.

The rest of the story surrounds high tech corporate culture, market pressure, a fascinating look at virtual reality technology and the tried and true secretive corporate machinations that reveal themselves over the course of the book.

Format: Paperback
I'd seen the film - Michael Douglas and Demi Moore, and loved it.
The book was well represented but you get the intricate background and extra characters in the book.
It's a riveting read; Tom Saunders up against his new female boss, who just happens to be his past, and very sexy, girlfriend.
They both fight a sexual harrassment battle, one against the other, Tom fighting to save his future and his marriage.
Get the DVD and the book.

Couldn't put this one down

Well written, terrific plot, well researched

The film was a good screenplay from the bones of the story but the book has much more

Industrial espionage, glass ceiling, sexual harrassment, it's all here

Just like Mon-Fri in the city!
