It was an entertaining read, but it falls short to other of Crichton novels.

Characteristic to Crichton's novels (The Andromeda Strain and Next come to mind) the conflict and shocking turn of events culminate in a drastically flat ending. However, the thrill in this novel is not quite the edge-of-my-seat feeling I've come to know and love from Crichton and fails to build to that halt of an ending.

I thought this book was excellent. Well-paced, well-researched, great plot, and then it got to the end and it undid in the last 2 or 3 pages all of great work done before. I'm still shaking my head at how it almost felt like the author said to someone "okay, I'm tired, just write whatever to finish the book"
