What's coming Next? Get a hint of what Michael Crichton sees on the horizon in this short video clip: high bandwidth or low bandwidth
We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps, a time when it's possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars and to test our spouses for genetic maladies.
We live in a time when one fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else, and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes...

Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and the bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.

I have not read this book yet, but I am required to read it for my biology class. It does seem very interesting from the little bit I have read.Published 3 months ago by Michaela Pinafel
Michael Crichton knew few equals in his prime. For me this was not one of his ten best novels, but it reads fast and energetically. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Andy Force
This was my first Michael Crichton book and, I have to say, I'm totally underwhelmed by his writing. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Hillary
I read this book in a very well-used paperback and enjoyed it enough to order the hard cover for my grandson. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Eunice Blazek
Good book, but has a lot of similarities to Jurassic Park, basically using the same concepts.
The reason I didn't give it five stars is because I read Jurassic Park before... Read more
