Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A thought-provoking issued-led book examining the ethical and practical problems faced by those obsessed by the great advantages that can be gleaned from genetic engineering and the mad rush to get these products on to the market without proper controls in place to protect the public. There are few answers and you are left unclear about what to think about anyone of the issues … and there are many! I found it quite frightening, compelling and demanding.

Similar this month: None but try Frederick Forsyth.
Comparison: Bill Napier, Michael Cordy.

If you like Michael Crichton you might also like to read books by Dan Brown, Richard Morgan and David Gibbins.

Synopsis

Next by Michael Crichton

Is a loved one missing body parts?

Are blondes becoming extinct?

Has a human already cross-bred with a monkey?

We live in a GENETIC WORLD. Fast, frightening – and potentially VERY lucrative. There are designer pets; a genetic cure for drug addiction; a booming market in eggs and sperm. But is there also a talking ape in Borneo? Has a 'master' gene for controlling others been found? Could an innocent man and his family be hunted cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes …

Are you ready for what comes NEXT in Michael Crichton's stunning new thriller?

Reviews

'A wonderful farrago, energetically stirring up a lot of scientific, medical, business and legal issues… marvellous.' Evening Standard

‘A satirical black-comedy thriller… Crichton writes likes Tom Wolfe on speed… completely brilliant… Crichton’s treatise on how breakthroughs in genetic science have been hijacked by science is anything but dull… top form.’ Daily Mail

‘One of the most reliable purveyors of brain-engaged fiction at work today… he is too good a writer not to nail us… diverting stuff.’ Daily Express

‘Crichton has certainly done his research… his alarm is hard to dispute… compelling… extremely funny.’ Sunday Times

About the Author

Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton was a writer and filmmaker, best known as the author of Jurassic Park and the creator of ER. Crichton graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College, received his MD from Harvard Medical School, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, researching public policy with Jacob Bronowski. Crichton's first bestseller, The Andromeda Strain, was published while he was still a medical student. He later worked full time on film and writing. Now one of the most popular writers in the world, his books have been translated into thirty-six languages, and thirteen have been made into films.

He had a lifelong interest in computers. His feature film Westworld was the first to employ computer-generated special effects back in 1973. Crichton's pioneering use of computer programs for film production earned him a Technical Achievement Academy Award in 1995. Crichton has won an Emmy, a Peabody, and a Writer's Guild of America Award for ER. In 2002, a newly discovered ankylosaur was named for him: Crichtonsaurus bohlini.

Michael Crichton died in 2008.
