Next – Michael Crichton

I have to say that after spending hours slogging through this novel that clever research does not make up for a lack of plot!

It could have been an ingenius genesis for “the planet of the apes”, but it’s really about how American lawers and the judicial system works with new technologies, genetic engineering and  patenting genetic material.

 A missed opportunity.

Michael, stick to writing about dinosaurs!

    I love Michael Crichton, but was so disappointed with his State of Fear that I never picked this up. I was sorry to hear he passed away though 😦

    Mike Says:- I was completely unaware that he had passed away, on further research it appears he died in November 2008 from throat cancer.
