This was a great sci-fi, suspence, action novel! It kept me on my toes guessing what was next. I am in the computer/technology industry and this has some very interesting concepts. The narrator did a very good job which helped make the book even better. This was one of the best ones I have listened to since joining Audible. Definitely recommend!!!

A great "read" overall. It starts slow thanks to TONS of background on the characters -- far too much, I thought -- but once Jack gets into the meat of the plot it is thrilling. I'd also reiterate what's been said earlier: The sample clip is largely of Michael Crichton himself narrating the foreward to the book - very dry. The actual narrator, George Wilson, picks it up at Chapter 1 and is SUPERB in his reading. He expertly acts all the parts in the book, convincingly giving you men, women, and children characters. His performance really elevated this audiobook a notch.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
the mix of real science and pure fiction, a hallmark of Chrichton's books is still there.
