    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.

    Any additional comments?

    They should have left this story as an uncompleted manuscript. I have a feeling even M.C. had reservations about writing and finishing this story. It is impossible not to feel like its a Honey I shrunk the Kids meets Jurassic Park concept. Forced, bad, dialog... and half the time you are wondering just how small are the characters exactly? Moth sized... Microbe sized, ant sized... Never quiet sure I guess. It is just not a satisfying listen at all.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Very good book"
