Sillyness

“Prey” by Michael Crichton

I read “Prey” in a few days time and enjoyed the fast paced future-thriller. At it’s technology core were several sci-fi memes that I’ve been facinated with ever since I picked up my first Gibson or Stephenson novels. Self-replicating nanotech, artificial life/intelligence, emergient behavior. Good stuff.

Lots of people knock the book for its technical errors and very formulaic plot line. I say it was worth the 5 hours it took to read it and nothing more. It just depends on what kinda entertainment you’re in the mood for.
