Ive been a big fan of Michael Crichton for years, since Andromeda Strain. I did not enjoy this book. Its as if he tried to explore every single possible ramification of genetic engineering. There are a dozen plots, none of them really well-developed, and only a few of them intersecting at the end to explain anything. The chapters are extremely short as he jumps from one subplot to another (is this a novel or a movie script hes writing?). The characters are underdeveloped, and there was not one character I cared about. Well, maybe I cared about Gerard. Crichton could have done so much with the subject, very disappointing.
