This book was a really great read. The techno-jargon wasn't too heavy, and was always translated into something more easily understood. I feel it is a good book for early sci-fi readers.

I'm not usually into books where the storyline is based on tech, and at first was going to put this one down. I'm glad I read through it. It held my interest throughout, even though it was predictable by the last third or so. Shades of Aliens in one particular section...

I think this is one of Crichton's best. His ability to translate boring scientific language into something understandable to all readers, and even more, something exciting, never ceases to amaze me

Readable work, yet not one of Crichton's best. A good portion of the story is tecnho-jargon, and it is pretty easy to figure out what is going to happen well before the end of the book. I kept waiting for a little bit more excitement, anything more "crichton" but it never quite materialized. I wouldn't tell someone to skip it, but I'd remind them that this book isn't his best.

The story has a considerable amount of technical jargon, whether it is true, or part of the fiction, there simply is too much of it. Also some of the characters reactions, particularly to the death of friends and relatives, is surreal..the author doesn't include real life emotion to such tragedy...just an OK novel in my opinion.

Pretty good. It was interesting enough, and it made me want to read more of his books. Not outstanding, but definitely readable.

I would say this has to be his worst. I have most of his books and he is one of my favourite authors, but when I read this I was thoroughly disappointed. Skip this one.

A good science fiction thriller. Hard to put down. Could this happen? Scary.
