Next by Crichton
I love Crichton. "This novel is fiction, except for the parts that aren't" A nice disclaimer. You hardly know what is fact and what is fiction. Crichton uses his unique style of using facts to generate ficition. The novel is about genetics and raises as usual many many questions. Crichton has used many articles and news items to keep the story forward. Some of these news appear real. I will have to check if they have actually appeared in a paper or whatever journal. But most of it look like news you have heard somewhere. This book is all about genetic enginnering, talking apes, genetic cures, academic research, gene patenenting and ofcourse the ethics. I have not finished it and would post on it as soon as i finish.
