In this book Michael Crichton’s evil beasts are nano particles. This is the story of an experiment which went wrong in the Nevada Desert. In a secret lab which was supposed to develop cameras using nano particles, something goes wrong. The particles escape, and develop the ability to learn and decides to kill the scientists who developed the technology.
This book is a page turner, like all his previous novels. But somehow it all seemed like a rehash of Jurrasic Park. Even the scenes are similar. The way the dinosaurs walk around the broken down jeeps, the nano particles swarm around a car in which the scientists take refuge. After sometime, the whole story became predictable.
Still a good read.
