I love Michael Chrichto (Juraissic Park) but Prey was poorly written and it kept me from loving it. I don't know whether this is because his writing has gone downhill or my standards have just changed.The premise is exciting enough (nano-robots gone rogue) but Chrichton keeps breaking the action to ...

I’m not knowledgeable about nanotechnology, so it wasn’t difficult to suspend disbelief regarding the science. I couldn’t overlook the enormous plot holes and badly written characters, though. I was curious enough to find out how the crisis resolved to finish the book, and I finished it fairly quick...

I also didn't like the way Jack was portrayed in the bo...

En este caso especialmente con la nanotecnología, un tema que técnicamente nu...

The narration is great on this audiobook but I have a few complaints. 1. I know we need to know some of the basics about nano-technology but this seemed way too much. I've read Crichton before so I'm familiar with his way of teaching you a little, but maybe it was the subject matter I didn't care...

I purchased this book from a sale at Zellers along with 'Hide and Seek' by James Patterson (which I haven't read yet) in a 2/$5 deal + 10% off with an SPC card. Being familiar with Patterson's works, I took a bit of a chance with this one, having, well, never really heard of it.The brief blurb on th...
