    In a locked Honolulu office building, three men are found dead with no sign of struggle except for the ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts covering their bodies. The only clue left behind is a tiny bladed robot, nearly invisible to the human eye. In the lush forests of Oahu, groundbreaking technology has ushered in a revolutionary era of biological prospecting. Trillions of microorganisms, tens of thousands of bacteria species, are being discovered; they are feeding a search for priceless drugs and applications on a scale beyond anything previously imagined.

    What disappointed you about Micro?

    For crying out loud - how hard can it be to learn how to pronounce words in other languages correctly?

    I lived in Hawaii for many years and I was totally disappointed at the mis-pronunciation of the Hawaiian place names in this book. Hawaiian is not that difficult. That mountain range on Oahu? It's pronounced 'Ko-O-lau'. Not 'cool-lau'. Every vowel is pronounced in Hawaiian. And that was just one example. I believe it was just laziness on the part of the narrator to not have double checked that his pronouncement was correct.

    This totally detracted from the enjoyment of this book.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Crichton and Richard Preston ? Why or why not?

    See above.
