Micro (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 269

An instant classic in the vein of Jurassic Park, this boundary-pushing novel has all the hallmarks of Michael Crichton's greatest adventures with its combination of pulse-pounding thrills, cuttingedge technology, and extraordinary research.

Three men are found dead in a locked second-floor office in Honolulu. There is no sign of struggle, though their bodies are covered in ultra-fine, razorsharp  cuts. With no evidence, the police dismiss it as a bizarre suicide pact. But the murder weapon is still in the room, almost invisible to the human eye. In Cambridge, Massachusetts, seven graduate students at the forefront of their fields are recruited by a pioneering   microbiology start-up company. Nanigen MicroTechnologies sends them to a mysterious laboratory in  Hawaii, where they are promised access to tools that will open up a whole new scientific frontier. But this opportunity of a lifetime will teach them the true cost of existing at the cuttingedge… The group becomes prey to a technology of radical, unimaginable power and is thrust out into the teeming rainforest. Armed only with their knowledge of the natural world, the young scientists face a hostile wilderness that threatens danger at every turn. To survive, they must harness the awe-inspiring creative – and destructive – forces of
nature itself.

The finale of Crichton

Get it if you love Crichton's relatable science fiction. This is Michael Crichton's final novel (Crichton paased away, while the novel was still unfinished). Marvellously taken forward by Richard Preston, this kept me awake late into the nights....Thanks Michael Crichton for such a wonderful story!

Slow, Sluggish and boring

The first few pages are interesting but major part of the book is plain boring. The author Richard Preston seems to have run out of ideas on what to write or narrate. I really doubt if Crichton had even written down the skeleton structure of this novel before his death. Because I associate Crichton … (View complete review)

Let down by Crichton

I have been an avid Michael Crichton fan and have read all his novels. Consequently, Micro is a big let-down. Crichton's forte has been bringing to life scary possibilities in advanced science in a very realistic way and creating plausible situations that may arise from that. Micro is rather like a … (View complete review)

Excellent Novel

For Micro, I can see that he has done a lot of research to come up with this. The novel is fast paced yet not an edge of the seat thriller. It keeps your interest without much effort. After a mysterious start to the novel, we are met with few unexpected and gruesome deaths of characters.

Not a new concept, but provides the reader with a Food For Thought!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Book stands quite fatter than expected.
Approximate Pp - 660
About 26 Lines of text per page (the lowest I have observed in a paperback so far)
Paper quality and Print - Very Good
Font Size and Line Spacing - Excellent
Binding and Cover - Excellent

ABOUT THE CONTENT:
1. As described by everyone else, the idea is not new. However, the book does provide with some facts about insects, venoms, and other aspects of nature, albeit not too much.
2. Reading this story does help to perceive an understanding from a visually miniaturized point of view. The world does seem as deadly and

Not Satisfying

I bought Micro from Flipkart, by pre-ordering the book, waiting in anticipation for the literal roller-coaster ride with the book. The last Posthumous work by Michael Crichton viz. Pirate Latitudes , was fantastic with all the old charm of Crichton books.
most annoyingly its release was delayed twice. And when it was finally published, the excitement was over way back.
The Micro has all the ingredients that made Michael Crichton books a wholesome read, but the end result is not quite "Crichton"ised.
The story has group of youngsters, big Jargon, Gruesome deaths, the unexpected help near the e

Not the Final Hurrah

Though this was supposed to be his last novel, MC is not quite able to pack the punch that was expected from him.There are quite a few reasons for this. First, the plot in itself is not an original one. This just seems to be the adult'ish' version of Honey,I shrunk the kids. Second, the setting of the plot seems somewhat been there,done that. MC's obsession with Hawaiian settings is repetitive. All in all, it makes State of Fear a more compelling read. But for all those die-hard MC fans who were shocked by his death in 2008, this is a nice collector's item. It quite justifies why you need to b

Not a classic Crichton

With the concept of small humans and facing the dangers of the micro world, the book comes off as a rip off of the film 'Honey I Shrunk The Kids'.
Even the thrills and the adrenaline rush of the dangers of the micro world aren't convincing. The book lacks the realism of the classic Crichton books. The read is a boring and it takes an effort to drag your eyes along the pages of the story.

Not Vintage MC Style

This book is good. But definitely lacks the classic Crichton charm. All through the book, the charm is missing. The references, the information are not satisfactory. The adventures are very predictable and to some extent dragged. NOT THE TECHNO-THRILLER that Crichton used to write. Richard did a nice job, I think, in his style (I never read his books). But this book is a thumb down.

I have been an avid Michael Crichton fan and have read all his novels. Consequently, Micro is a big let-down. Crichton's forte has been bringing to life scary possibilities in advanced science in a very realistic way and creating plausible situations that may arise from that. Micro is rather like a write-up of 'Honey I shrunk the kids'. The 'scientific' explanations are hardly detailed or believable and so make Micro a childish read. Scientific concepts Andromeda Strain were believable and scary, those in Jurassic Park or Congo may have been far-fetched but were written about in a much more re
