Unfortunately, the ‘science’ is too poorly developed and many aspects and inconsistencies in the interaction of micro-humans with the regular world remain unexplained.
The other books by Michael Crichton that I have read were always thoroughly researched and the science—even though fictional—was logical and believable.
The narrator didn’t help the story at all either. The reading was emotionless and I often got confused about which character is currently talking. The situation was made worse by the fact that the chapter marks did not match the chapters in the book.
My conclusion is that I would not recommend this book even to die-hard Crichton fans.
