John Michael Crichton, known as Michael Crichton, was born on October 28, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois.

Kirja-arvosteluja

Historiaa ja scifiä sekoittava toimintajännäri, josta jotenkin paistaa läpi se että se on kirjoitettu tuleva elokuva ja sen action-jaksot mielessä. Olen sen elokuvankin nähnyt, ehkä kirja oli uskottavampi. Harmittoman hauskaa viihdettä, ja juoni riittävän erilainen kuin elokuvassa.

Nanobotit karkaavat tutkimuslaitokselta, ja ne täytyy pysäyttää ennenkuin tapahtuu kauheita. Crichton tietää tieteen salat, muttei prosaistina liene aivan huipulla.
