A Multi-faceted Jewel of Fun and Excitement!
When I finished listening to this book, I immediately went back to the beginning and listened to it all over again! Although it is written in a rather fragmented style which some might find bitty, most of these fragments gradually come together in an intriguing way, with the others acting as mortar, cementing them together; as Michael Crichton suggests, this is rather like a DNA strand. Follow the tale (tail?) of Gerard the parrot through the highways and byways of this most entertaining book, and laugh all the way! Michael Crichton has used humour to make very readable a subject which should concern us all. (I should have preferred less foul language, but most of this was uttered by pretty foul characters! Art reflects life...)

I managed to listen to about half an hour of "Next" before giving up completely. I couldn't grasp the characters or what was going on.
