Another good read from Michael Crichton. . He always comes up with a good “what if?” premise and this one is just as thought provoking as his others.
It might take a little bit more effort to get past some of the science speak but once this book gets going its fast action pace sweeps you along to a great finale.
In California, odd things are happening to unemployed scientist Jack Forman. His children tell Jack that strange men have visited the house. And Julia, his wife, isn't helping – she acts, even looks, somehow different.
Deep in the Nevada desert, in the laboratory where Julia works, things are out of control. A swarm of rogue microbots, designed to reproduce and learn, is developing with a frightening speed that has the scientists battling to contain it.
Only when Jack is called in to help does he discover the shocking truth – the microbots have been programmed to behave as predators.
And Man is the prey…
