First, I found the science behind the book to be incredibly flawed. The loss, of mass caused by reducing humans in size, was never considered in any way. But it is science fiction and I guess I wouldn't mind too much but the story was lacking. I felt like I was reading the pilot for a television series. And the author introduces a character half way through the book who ends up walking off with the only computer disk that contains the "micro-making" technology. Everyone thinks that all was lost in a fire. Why do that unless your looking to franchise the "idea" of the book?
Last of all, the author seems to have a problem with scientists who using modeling to predict "global Warming". He spent much of the book "State of Fear" talking this problem. While I hat any kind of "fear mongering", I think that the author's take is more like keeping your fingers crossed and hoping there are some good scientists out there that will figure this all out.
The Andromeda Strain - excellent
The Terminal Man - excellent
Congo - good
Sphere - very good
Jurassic Park - excellent
Rising Son - good
Airframe - excellent (probably my favorite)
Timeline - very good (shared some of the flawed science of "Micro" but a much better story!
Prey - very good
State of Fear - fair (good story but way too much proselyting!)
Excellent voicing of characters. Good pace and easy to understand.
No, I don't think that I ever get over the lack of any scientific possibility of this occurring.
