One asks oneself It is at the very least engaging and thought provokingOn the downside it follows a typical Crichton script bright young students some at war with each other on an adventure against an evil demagogue who is also a wealthy entrepreneur with ground breaking technology I worked out the end result half way through because I had already read Timeline and Nano for me Timeline isn't just Crichton's best book it's one of my all time favourite books Those two follow the same scriptBut in the final analysis it's a good read ideal holiday fare and a cut above Dan Brown on that score; at least Crichton adds a note of feasibility and leading edge science
