Bit of a let down,
This review is from: Next (Hardcover)
I absolutely love every Michael Crichton book I've ever read, and was so excited when this came out. However I feel quite let down, it didn't have a really good story like Timeline, or Airframe, the characters jumped from one to the other too much, and you had to keep thinking, 'now who's he again'. The plot was disjointed and I felt like I was being preached to too much.
There were bits that were excellent, and it wasn't completely awful, just not as good as his other books.
Read Jurassic Park and you'll see how good he can be, whilst still warning us about the misuse of genetics.
