    Story
    (8)

    In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

    "Mostly Boring Nonsense"
    Overall

    Another Michael Crichton monster tale. Science makes a monster, then we have improbable characters with boring challenges and unlikely motivations running around doing stupid things that ultimatley win.

    I like Crichton's attempts to wrap stories around emerging technology areas (artificial intelligence, emergent phenomena), but fundamentally his stories don't make a lot of sense. Characters act to move plot, not to be themselves. In the end, I can't recommend it.
