As always Terrific, can't wait for "next" one!

by merrill66 on Dec 13, 2007

Mr. Crichton provides us with another "state of the art" and a tremendous insight into what we call "science." You will notice he has evolved into not only our window on time, but, also, our sage of wisdom for "what to do next." His last two novels have provided us with insightful opportunities to seriously re-evaluate our social consciousness and provided a "road-map" for those who are desperately seeking advice on which "path" to follow. If there is one person who has the depth, understanding and wisdom to provide us a truer understanding of where were going, I don't know who it is.

I am a fan of Michael Crichton, but this was not my favorite. The plot was fascinating and the characters were very interesting. That said, I think he could have gone a little deeper. The book is made up of several intersecting story lines which all could have made a wonderful novel on their own. When combined not enough attention is paid to any one plot line. I believe that it would have made several great novels or one exceptional epic novel, but as one novel of average length it was just so-so.


Interesting subject matter

by ryan on Jun 28, 2007

I think the subject and story are very interesting, but certain aspects were just too far fetched. I had no trouble with Jurassic Park and cloning dinosaurs, but one of the story lines in this book wasn't believable. I don't want to give anything away, so if you don't want to know, don't read the next paragraph. *SPOILER* The whole talking monkey boy story line was just too much. The monkey didn't need to talk to make it compelling. Monkeys don't have the right organs to speak for one thing, and it was just too much of a reach to suggest that the first and only time this guy tries his experiment he ends up with a talking monkey. Just the fact that scientist would use his own genetic material in primate experimentation would have been enough to shock readers. I think a more intelligent, hairless monkey would have been a better idea. Otherwise I enjoyed the book.
