Summary
In the vein of Jurassic Park, this high concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them. An instant classic, Micro pits nature against technology in vintage Crichton fashion. Completed by visionary science writer Richard Preston, this boundary-pushing thriller melds scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction to create yet another masterpiece of sophisticated, cutting-edge entertainment.

This book tends to drag in places, and isn't as polished as some of Crichton's other books. And "honey, I shrunk the scientists" isn't exactly original. Having said that, I find myself far more interested in soil, scents and bugs than I ever would have believed possible. For that I am most grateful, and am willing to overlook some of the weaknesses of the plot in turn.

Micro reads like a cross between Honey I shrunk the kids and Land of the Lost. If they ever make a movie it would be a good candidate for Mystery Science Theater. Good naaratoon might have made it a little better, but we don't even get that.
