Is a loved one missing some body parts? Are blondes becoming extinct? Is everyone at your dinner table of the same species? Humans and chimpanzees differ in only 400 genes; is that why an adult human being resembles a chimp fetus? And should that worry us? There's a new genetic cure for drug addiction, is it worse than the disease? We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps; a time when it's possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars or test our spouses for genetic maladies. We live in a time when one fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else, and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes. Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn.… (lisätietoja)

    Desmorph: In Next, Crichton takes genetic engineering to comical commercial heights; but with Rubicon Harvest, Kesting brings the future of stem cell science right into our world. Gritty and stunning in it's realism, Rubicon Harvest is a roller coaster ride of tech thrillers. Think Blade Runner meets CSI!!… (lisätietoja)

Not a bad book, but I found the advocacy a little much. There are lots of twisting plots and characters, which I found I didn't like as much as his other books. I also found the story to be a little less cohesive than some of Crichton's earlier works. ( )

I use Michael Crichton as my medical friend who tells me the complex issues in the medicine world.

  Ibrahim_Obalola | Apr 15, 2021 |
Interesting and very readable, the science is abit over my head, but I like it.
This book has small pieces of multiple characters working for many different science/gene based companies from universities to the private sector-the patent of genes fascinates me. I am not sure how accurate the science is, if it is based on current science or future science or a combination of both.
The idea that people could have a heart grown for replacement that we knew would not be rejected. The opportunity for being able to cure cancer, diabetes, etc is nothing less than inspiring. Fascinating.
However, due to the way the book is written, there is no attachment to characters or story lines. Yet it works, well.

It was ok. I probably would not read it again. I did not like it like I enjoyed the Jurassic Park books, Congo or Sphere. ( )

I might not have picked this up if it wasn't free, and if Michael Crichton hadn't just died (so he was on my mind when I saw the free book). It was OK.

Michael Crichton is:

--The king of the slippery slope.

--Not very good at hiding the fact that his novels are really just a platform for his political beliefs. (Better at hiding it, though, than Ayn Rand, for instance).

---Incapable of writing female characters. It's sad that in his long and varied career, the most believable female character he ever wrote was the ape from Congo.

How far will scientists go with genetic testing? This book explores all aspects of this question and spins a tale of a very scary possible future for humans. Michael Crichton is a master at bringing science and adventure together and this book excels in entertainment. ( )

All science fiction has some element of titillation — a strategy of taking known facts and stretching them to the limits of credulity, for the purposes of both entertaining and enlightening. But Crichton seems intent on confusing his readers, pummeling them with a barrage of truths, half-truths and untruths, until they have no choice but to surrender. As one of the author’s numerous stand-ins warns a naïve interlocutor, “Disinformation takes many forms.” Here, finally, Crichton has a point that should be heeded.
 
''Next'' would be a narrow, uninteresting book if its sole point were to condemn such tactics as transgressive. Instead Mr. Crichton moves far beyond questioning the morality of such experiments and acknowledges that they happen. His whole thriller-tutorial boils down to one troubling question, asked about each freakish breakthrough described here: Now what? Since ''Next'' is one of Mr. Crichton's more un-put-downable novels, the reader may experience some frustration. It's tempting to stop and look up each of the genetic, legal and ethical aberrations described here in order to see how wild a strain of science fiction is afoot. Save a step. Just believe this: Oddity after oddity in ''Next'' checks out, and many are replays of real events. ''This novel is fiction, except for the parts that aren't,'' Mr. Crichton writes, greatly understating the book's scary legitimacy.

Our bodies are our individual property. In a sense, bodily ownership is the most fundamental kind of ownership we know. It is the core experience or our being.

That is why when an individual donates tissue to a doctor of a research study, is is not the same as donating a book to a library. It never will be. If the doctor or his research institution wishes later to use tht tissue for some other purpose, they should be required to obtain permission for this new use. And so on, indefinitely.

Because the descendants of a dead person share his or her genes, their privacy is invaded if research is done, or if the genetic makeup of the dead person is published. The children of the dead person may lose their health insurance simply because contemporary laws do not reflect contemporary realities.
