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.

Not a new concept, but provides the reader with a Food For Thought!ABOUT THE BOOK:

Not SatisfyingI 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.

Not the Final HurrahThough 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… (Expand)

Not a classic CrichtonWith 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'.

Not Vintage MC StyleThis 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.

Micro- Michael Crichton & Richard PrestonOkay read... however, the concept wasn't too original.... not the great read one expects by M Crichton :( Jurassic Park was path breaking.. this was just informative & almost fairy tale ish- i the sense of little people fantasies!

Michael Crichton is the Best!A gripping technological thriller that dwells into the murky region of 'Misuse of Technological Advancements'.

too goodvery much good read........for those who likes to read thrillers. The concept of microbots are really practical looking for the current advancements of nanotechnology.

The finale of CrichtonGet 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 boringThe 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 with innovative and fast paced books which this novel clearly lacks.
