    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.

    "Hard to finish."
    Overall

    It had promise. Crichton is a good writer but he kept hitting me with inconstancies. Anything that can keep up with a running rabbit can travel in a 15 knot wind. And, when you have a chance to kill the bad guy, kill him! Don?t walk up to him and strike up a conversation for the sake of dramatics. There was something like this in almost every chapter and it got very frustrating. These kinds of things make me feel resentful that I was tricked into starting a book that had too many situations that were fit for a comic book.

    And, Mr. Crichton, human eyes don?t have a tapetum lucidum so they don?t glow in a flashlight beam.

    After I finished Prey, I immediately started listening to a Douglas Adams book to cheer me up. It did.
