I loved this book. I am a big Michael Crichton fan, but I love how he explores the medical world, genetics etc. Of course he was a medic himself. The premise for this story is so far-fetched at the moment, but scarily who knows how far we really are away from what the novel describes. 100 years? I loved the way that in the face of adversity, some characters teamed up and clung together, life became precious. Some even willing to sacrifice themselves to save others. The suspense in the novel, plus the twists and turns are excellent. The bad guy was a real bad guy and I hated him - so - well written. The way the students used their knowledge of the natural world was my favourite part, particularly as I am not in the least bit scientific, but this was truly inspired.
A truly excellent novel
