Descripción del producto

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.

Es un libro q te engancha y te explica la microbiología mientras estas leyendo y para q no sea aburrido te lo dicen en plan aventura. Lo malo es q niños de la edad de 11 a 17 no van a entender algunas palabras.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas An Exciting New Adventure From The Mind Of Michael Crichton 18 de enero de 2017
Por benjamin bannister - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
I went into 'Micro' knowing full well that Michael Crichton left a draft manuscript on his computer, and that it was Richard Preston who filled in the story. If you go in knowing that, you can set your expectations properly.

The story of Micro is high-concept: a Rated-R version of 'Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.' What would happen if you took that old movie, kept the adventure, but had very serious consequences? That's Micro. After a mysterious introduction to hook you in, Micro follows the story of seven scientists with various degrees of specialties relating to the fields of biology. They are recruited as potential job candidates by a big corporation when something happens, and they are stuck as shrunken people. Using their brains, they have to work together with their specialized knowledge to escape the harrowing real world of Mother Nature.

The concept of shrunken people is a big stretch but go with it. This book explores that concept as realistically as possible, with Michael Crichton bringing some real world science to help sell it.

Knowing that this was still in draft mode, I'm sure Crichton still had a lot of research to do to explain and convince us of certain plot elements. Because of this, the story is not as fully detailed as a typical Crichton book. I think Richard Preston did his best to translate and get across what I can only assume were ideas that were still in development.

The writing and dialogue seemed... simplistic. I think I'm not the only one with this opinion. It reads very high school. I'm not sure if this was because it was rushed, or because they wanted the writing at a level that would reach a larger audience. In any case, I'm just glad that we got one more Michael Crichton book.

If you want a fun adventure story, Micro is for you. The book reads almost like a screenplay, and I could already imagine the soon-to-be-released DreamWorks film. Recommended.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Pretty Good, but Not One of Crichton's Best 23 de enero de 2016
Por Douglas Winslow Cooper - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
I've enjoyed most of Crichton's novels and expected to enjoy this, too.Perhaps because I listened to it on my Kindle, rather than read it, I was not as captivated by the characters and the story as I usually am.

One problem was the "science" behind shrinking. The atoms and molecules are said to be reduced in size, causing questions of the chemistry of respiration and nutrition and toxicology and of the much do they weigh? They supposedly nearly float when they jump or fall, but at 100-200 pounds, they would drop like rocks and be too heavy for their insect-size muscles to propel. Oh, well, perhaps one should not inspect too closely.

Except for the villain, I had trouble caring a lot about these characters. Maybe I was recalling too many graduate students from my past.

I've always felt this to be the last great Michael Crichton novel, even though he never finished it. The idea of shrinking people has always been a Hollywood staple (i.e. The Incredible Shrinking Man & Fantastic Voyage come to mind), but it was Crichton that helped give it scientific credence. To me, that's what makes a Crichton novel so memorable: the possibility that it could eventually be done, despite what modern science claims. I'm looking at you Jurassic Park. Richard Preston has done a remarkable job of translating and finishing Crichton's manuscript after his untimely death, but you can tell it doesn't have the meat of a typical Crichton novel. The characters are one-dimensional and many wear their emotions and characteristics on their sleeves, but it works. The action and circumstances work. Crichton's characters are meant to represent the pros and cons of the science being practiced and, in my opinion, helps drive the story forward. Crichton exemplifies scientific advancements, but also their dangers. Not since Prey has Crichton's writings interested me in the science being exploited. And I urge that same curiosity on you. So pick up this book and get lost in the adventure.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Not Up To Michael Crichton's Standards 9 de enero de 2015
Por James R. - Publicado en
Formato: Libro de bolsillo Compra verificada
Wife here: Michael Crichton is my favorite author. This book was not written by him.

It was written after his death by a very good writer, Richard Preston.

However, it is not up to the standards of either of them. I'm not sure why????

It is written in a juvenile style.

Do not judge other Michael Crichton books by the quality of this particular one.

My favorite book is: State of Fear by Michael Crichton. It is an absolute 'must read' if you love books based on science.

Richard Preston's The Hot Zone is also excellent. It is an account of the 1st time EBOLA was found in the United States.

Michael Crichton was one of my favorite novelists, and this novel was his last-it was almost completed at his death and finished by another excellent writer, Richard Preston. I've read almost all of Crichton's novels. This one didn't show the depth and intricacies into the science behind the plot, as his others did, but it was still a great reading experience. It involves an evil villain, the CEO of a company with technology both to shrink people and materials down to tiny sizes, and military technology that has the capacity to kill. The protagonists get shrunken to 1/2 inch in size and are "lost" in the rain forest in Hawaii. I gained ALOT of knowledge about insects and small predators around us all, and I guess it affected me enough that I really grew to horrendously dislike the villain. I would say that it is not Michael Crichton's best written novel, but he was such a great writer that even his "not best" is better than most other's best.
