The premise and the writing.
This is the first audio book that I could not finish listening to. The narration is good but the story is so implausible that it is just silly. And I’m a Crichton fan. I have loved all of his previous books because the stories, while being futuristic, were plausible and even prescient, but Micro is no Prey or Jurassic Park. Add to that the frequently trite writing, especially the dialog, and I found the well-narrated book to be unlistenable.
