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.

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.
