Publisher Description

In the vein of Jurassic Park, this high-concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

An instant classic, Micro pits nature against technology in vintage Michael Crichton fashion. Completed by visionary science writer Richard Preston, this boundary-pushing thriller melds scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction to create yet another masterpiece of sophisticated, cutting-edge entertainment.

Entertaining

If you are looking for a realistic, quantitative science read, this isn't it. If you enjoy an unbridled ride of imagination, then you will enjoy this book. Forget who wrote what and how much, it's a good read. There are a few shallow spots, but overall an entertaining book experience.

Re. Micro

Grave robbing. Like Pirate Latitudes, this book is nowhere near M.C.'s talents or standards. Seems like the publisher is patching together fragments of manuscripts probably deemed unfit or too immature for publication by the author himself. This is just an attempt to wring more money out of an established body of work and it diminishes the authors reputation...Shame.

Entertaining bit of Crichton fluff

Reading Micro is like re-reading Jurassic Park. It's exciting, full of science ideas. There are scientific errors, but it's good bubble gum for your brain. Will make a good summer movie in a few years.
