The pace and plot was a bit slow. The characters were undeveloped. The ending was abrupt. But it was sort of cool to get a slight view of Los Angeles from the 1970s.
As creepy as it might sound, it brought me back to my days as a college intern. Crichton made a number of points that I'm trying to share with my siblings. 😘
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.

Crichton is a master of research and analysis, but this book does not do him a lot of credit in that department.
Read it, but read his other books first.
