    1. What a disappointment I stopped halfway at the time I really couldn t continue I ve never been irritated by a book before but I did rally round and read to the end of the thing I m assuming my irritation was in part because of my expectations an unfinished Crichton novel I thought what fun But this isn t Crichton whoever Mr Preston is, he s a cheap impostor whose prose employs words like goop , gunk and goo Crichton didn t.But then there s the technology Crichton s time travel had consequences o [...]


    2. Do you believe in redemption We often abandon authors once they disappoint us, and Michael Crichton never really found his way again after 1990 s Jurassic Park In fact, in his later works Crichton seemed to spiral out of control, so I d or less given up on him And I don t think I was the only one Thankfully, Crichton s new book Micro could easily be adapted for film, suggesting that he had returned to form before he passed away in 2008.There will be a temptation to compare Micro to Prey, Cricht [...]


    3. There should be a law against authors finishing up other authors books It never ends well.But I do not think Richard Preston did all that much damage to the novel In fact, from the unfinished introduction by Michael Crichton at the beginning of the book, Crichton appears to be in his preachy mode as he was in his most annoying books like his Japanophobic Rising Sun and his rant against the idea of global warming titled State of Fear The fact that Crichton was already writing an intro may be a hi [...]



    4. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids meets And Then There Were None in this lame attempt at pseudo science fiction Now, I m all for the suspension of disbelief, but a magnetic field that shrinks people and machines down to half an inch, in seconds, without any kind of structural damage Please Dinosaurs, time machines, nano bots, no problem But a shrink ray is going to take a bit convincing Shall I add that the idea of having seven grad students in the same lab, all of whom happen to be working on completel [...]


    5. I read this about a month ago, and only now have I realized that this needs a better review from me For a Crichton or half a Crichton novel, this really has a low rating At first I couldn t understand why, because this really has to be one of my favorite novels.After reading a lot of reviews, I realized that people were rating this book based on their past experience with Crichton s novels I will be honest and say that this was my first novel of Crichton, so maybe that s the reason for my liking [...]

    7. That was lame Good thing Michael Crichton was dead, so he wasn t around for this piece of junk A lot of Crichton s books have a far fetched wacky sciency central idea, but he somehow made them interesting and they worked view spoiler This is just a rehash of Honey I Shrunk the Kids with killer micro bots I thought it was headed there, but I hoped there wouldn t be magically shrinking humans But, that was it A bunch of Cambridge PhD students working in a lab get a visit from Nanigen execs CEO and [...]


    8. Disappointing All the characters were so stock The greedy bad guy did bad things because he s a greedy bad guy No nuance No finesse.


    9. M.C wrote facinating fiction while alive will see how he does with the handicap of death Optimistic Ok, no longer optimistic It started interesting but lacked M C s attention to scientific detail and storytelling ability I have read books like this where a loved author started it and someone else finished Sometimes good, rarely great In this instance, not so great An ok read but disappointing to to its anchestry and my hopes A book contract was fulfilled, some money was made, library funds spent [...]


    10. Michael Crichton was an idea guy and apparently a busy man So far, two books have been published with his name on them after his death The first, Pirate Latitudes, was completed by Crichton, though the writing is uneven and thus it was probably edited after his death.Micro is another story Clearly, the writing style in the first third of the book is Crichton s, with emphasis on the gee whiz scientific aspects of the story that so often and welcomely permeates his books The last two thirds, a pur [...]


    11. I was really happy to discover a last Michael Crichton book, but what a disappointment This is not Crichton It s like a high school student wrote it As a writer, I m putting it in my will that nobody can finish any unfinished books of mine after seeing what they ve done with this What a shame I can see where the new author kicked in writing this it is not good.


    12. This was awful The premise is stupid The writing is bad,the characters are flat The only thing that sells this novel is Crichton s name Unfortunately, the other guy probably wrote it.


    13. 3.5 stars out of 5.This book can be summed up in one gif Disclaimer A little suspension on disbelief is required by the reader to read Micro or any other MC book, for that matter Nanigen is a robotics company which recruits seven graduate students each from a different field as part of its research team Nanigen is light years ahead in its technology, seeing as how its scientists have come up with a tensor generator which is able to shrink humans to micro sizes Teams have been successfully shrunk [...]


    14. Eight Things I Learned from Reading Micro 1 Hawaii must be a wonderland of plant biodiversity, because you can be half an inch tall and still find all of the ingredients for curare in the course of a single morning, not to mention the nut necessary to start a fire so you can cook said curare 2 The brutality of your death is inversely proportional to how interesting you are as a person For instance, if you are a brilliant venom expert with strong leadership skills and great personal charisma, you [...]


    15. I have no problem proclaiming my love and adoration of the late, great Michael Crichton Where he has always lacked in characterization and crafting language, he has always told big stories with big ideas He was first and foremost an ideas man, and much like Jules Verne 150 years earlier, the concepts took center stage while characters and whatnot hung back in the shadows, only peeking out when necessary to the plot.This is probably my least favorite Crichton novel, and I ve read them all excludi [...]


    16. There are some kind of spoilers, but if you ve read any Crighton, you won t be surprised Just FYI I opened this book yesterday, and finished it before I went to bed I couldn t put it down The concept was intriguing, and the glimpse into the micro world was pretty cool Like all Crighton books, it s graphic and descriptive in its violence It has some language, for sure And there s even a giant boob The dialogue was often cheesy and predictable, but some of it was great Of course, nearly everyone d [...]


    17. I have to admit, I was concerned The reviews of Micro seemed so lackluster that I was almost afraid to read it I wondered if it would taint the memory of an author I really admire Sure, I knew the reigns were handed off to Richard Preston a notable author in his own right but as an author myself, I also know how difficult it would be to pick up someone else s work and not only finish it, but do it in a way that would please that author s fans An author s voice is unique To duplicate it would be [...]


    18. This is not a good book It s even worse than Michael Crichton s Next Despite this, I actually quite enjoyed it, probably because it was a quick and entertaining read No surprises or twists and a very easy plot The experience can be compared to eating a big mac and drinking a cheap wine with it it fills you up for the moment while numbing your brain.It s very difficult to give any sort of synopsis without revealing too much I had feared the book would be very much like Prey , but it s not The tin [...]


    19. I read this in one sitting today Then I realized that there would be no new Michael Crichton books after I finish his other posthumous novel, and what a sad finality to have to finally read what Crichton was reportedly working on when he was battling cancer Now I ll simply have to make do with rereading his previous books The choice of Richard Preston, the guy who wrote the harrowing The Hot Zone and oh yes yes Cobra Event and whose pedigree includes being a brother to don t get me started Doug [...]



    20. In Micro, an evil nanotechnology company with its dastardly and malevolent CEO, Tim Drake, are killing off employees They go on a recruiting mission to lure the young minds of the future into their evil clutches, when one of the scientists brother, Eric Jansen, who is an executive of with this company, goes missing and warns his brother not to come to the island This leads to Drake shrinking the young scientists to a half inch in size and forcing them to fend for their lives in the wilds of Hawa [...]



    21. Nano techno thriller fun at times, but pretty frightening mostlyKudos to Richard Preston, who had the daunting task of completing the inimitable Michael Crichton s last work It s Honey I Shrunk the Kids with real bad guys, and it gets frightening at times But if you re a Crichton fan or anyone else, give this one a shot.


    22. OK, before I start with my review i just want to point out that a movie based on this book is rud to be in the works I believe I read Disney bought the rights for it and the other Crichton s book called Pirate Latitudes This could be good and bad since it is sure to be rated PG or PG 13 with minimum on screen violence Basically, it could be just another version of Honey, I shrunk the Kids movie Anyway, on to the book The concept of small humans surviving the environment and being chased by anima [...]



    23. This book deserves a 3.5 stars As I said, as a long time Crichton fan, I probably came equipped with an overly high expectation The book started out slow, with lots of loose ends that needed to be tied together, but came together nicely at around 30% Without giving too much away, I d have to say Crichton s high tech, breakthrough technology is here, as well as the thrill factor, so the book is a page turner The general idea of the plot was good, and the story could be easily adapted into a movie [...]


    24. You might think that my low rating indicates that I didn t like this book This is not so, it s just that ratings or even words are an insufficient mode of expression to describe the experience of this, Crichton s last novel No, to truly understand the sense of wonder, incredulity really, that this book inspires, a subtle form is required I ll go further while many of MCs other books lend themselves to reinterpretation as B movies, Micro would probably be best experienced as an interpretive danc [...]


    25. Essentially a grown up, horror version of HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS Great science from Chricton as always, but very violent and the characters were interchangeable Bad guy is also a bit of a mustache twirler All in all, a decent, but unmemorable outing.
