Good Books: Next

NextNext by Michael Crichton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is what I would call a hybrid fiction/non-fiction novel, and as such is not a great piece of fiction, but more of a well-written piece of fiction that carries a well-researched message of caution regarding genetic manipulation, gene therapy, cloning, and genetically modified plants and animals. I listened to a recording, and even without the printed page in front of me I found it easy enough to follow the science. I would recommend it to fans of Crichton, Azimov, Clarke, and other writers who have something intelligent to say about the course of scientific innovation.
