Review: Michael Crichton & Richard Preston - Micro

After Michael Crichton passed away in 2008, they found some manuscripts and unfinished books. One of these was Micro, and Richard Preston was chosen to finish it. I am so glad he did. I found out the book doesn’t get real good ratings, so I was curious. I mean, come on. This was a Crichton book (partially). Here’s what I think about it.

Micro begins as a usual Crichton book. There’s a lot of technical terms in it. Maybe a bit too much in my opinion. It looks like the man was showing off his understanding of biological and biochemical terms. But we know that’s what Crichton does. It’s what makes his books so good.

Apart from the overuse of technical terms, I loved this story. Where Preston takes over, the book gets a more adventurous vibe. There are unexpected plot twists, which improve the story again and again. I’m really happy that I read this book.

I liked the ending of this book. I’m not going to tell you the details, but I remember thinking: “Yeah, that’s how it should end.” I don’t always have that. So apart from an overuse of technical terms, I think the book is great. That’s why I give it 5 stars, no matter what the other reviewers think or say.
