Review: Next

Next Next by Michael Crichton
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Book Talk: Your body belongs to you...right? Not anymore, at least according to the lawyers and researchers in Crichton's Next. Transgenic species of apes and parrots are being created that blend animals and people into strange new beings. And how will all of this new technology impact us?

My Thoughts: I generally like Michael Crichton's books. They tend to be interesting and fast reads. This was the opposite, pretty much drudgery. I really really disliked this book. There were so many characters doing way too many things, and those were just the humans. Then add in the half ape, half parrot, and half orangutan, and things get really confusing.

My Recommendation: 2/5 stars
