In all a fun book that only took a few days to read. I won't touch the controversy regarding Global Warming as Crichton states his views clearly, and tries to take the side preserving scientific integrity.

For Crichton fans I think the book reflects his general style and I personally enjoyed it.

Had a great time reading this book. Crichton was true to form and delved into detail as is his habit but I felt that it all played well even if it did take some leaps of faith to stay with him at certain points.

The story is predictable and quite boring. The protagonist acts like a stupid. I am a big fan of Crichton. But this books is terrible. I read the book half way and gave up.
