Publisher's Summary

Following on from the best-selling Next, Michael Crichton's new novel will repeat the winning formula established with novels such as Jurassic Park: to identify future trends in science and imagine the most astonishing - and terrifying - possibilities that they hold for Mankind.
Always interesting, often controversial, Next and State of Fear put him straight back in the headlines - and best-seller charts - and reaffirmed his position as the thriller master. Nothing less is expected of the next book from the man who managed to make subjects such as DNA, nanotechnology, and global warming both enormously popular and hugely exciting.

Not as enjoyable as it might be!

One of my favourite Crichton books is Eaters of the dead which was made into a film the Thirteenth Warrior so I was not expecting a standard Crichton book, it is as always well written with good characterisations and a good plot what spolit it for me was the narrator who I found it hard to listen too.

Pity about the nonsense threequarters through

Generally this is an entertaining novel, well researched and quickly ploted. It is undemanding, however it gives the reader of the sense of life in the 17th Centuary.
However all the well crafted realisim is blown out of the water but an unecessary episode 3/4 through the book that streches credibility and dos nothing for the book. It spoilt the enjoyment and without revealing too much I can only assume it is added for American tastes and a demand for monsters. Its a pity really
