LoveReading View on Prey

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.

Prey Synopsis

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…
