About the Author
Born in Chicago in 1942, Michael Crichton first trained as a doctor before going on to become one of the most successful writers in the world. In 1994 he achieved a feat unmatched by any other writer: by having simultaneously a number one TV series, book and movie with, respectively, ER (which he created), Disclosure and Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, on its release the highest-grossing film of all time. He also directed several movies, including The Great Railway Robbery with Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland. His high-concept thrillers were international bestsellers, and in total his books have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide. He died in 2008.

When I first read it, years ago, I did not particularly care for it. However, I really enjoyed it this time . Just goes to show that your taste can change over time, I guess. It is not a long book and it moves pretty fast, and is quite interesting. Although, I did keep wondering why none of these people ever whipped out their cell phones when things went bad. Then I realized that when this book was written, everybody and their baby did not have cell phones like they do now. Having said that, I still felt that the story was great, and except for the absense of cells phones, the story felt very current.
Not his longest novel. This one ends a bit abruptly. However, it is a well written and engaging as all of his novels are.
