The Sixth Lamentation
It's always a pleasant surprise to pick up a book by a new author and to find that you enjoy it tremendously. This is what happened with this book, for I just happened to see it sitting on a table of …
reviewed Prey. September 20, 2004
A repeated theme in Michael Crichton's "Prey" goes something like this: "Things never turn out the way you think they will." I find myself wishing that this were true of the novel itself. "Prey" is a …

Digital Fortress
This is the third Brown book I have read (Deception Point & Da Vinci Code are the prior books). Brown has an uncanny ability in all his books to bring the reader in at the beginning and put you on a roller …

Digital Fortress
Ok- first off... I really did enjoy this book. However, now that I have all 4 of Brown's novels, I have noticed a certain formula that Dan Brown uses.    1- Use the word "Incredulous" …
reviewed Prey. June 10, 2004
Crichton does an excellent job of writing a heart-pounding high tech thriller! This is a story of nano-technology gone out of control. Those familiar with Ben Bova's tales (Venus, The Asteroid War series, …

Digital Fortress
The more Dan Brown I read, the more I enjoy Dan Brown. The man is a master of the fast paced thriller and it is fun to watch his growth from one book to another even if I did begin my acquaintanceship …

Remember the plot of Jurassic Park? The well meaning scientists, the crazed mercenaries, the bewildered civilians and the villians---tons of ready-made living dinosaur meat cultivated from Jurassic era …
reviewed Prey. February 09, 2004
Michael Crichton has produced another high-tech page-turner that will hold your interest to the very end. You might call it Andromeda Strain meets Jurassic Park since the human-engineered malevolence …

Digital Fortress
Since I wasn't able to sleep on my red-eye flight to Orlando, I was able to start (and finish) Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. A very enjoyable read, especially if you're into technology security and encryption. …
reviewed Prey. January 05, 2004
A hallmark of Michael Crichton's work over the years has been the issue of technology with unintended consequences thanks to human error. We are not as smart as we think we are, in short. From his first …

Red Dragon
RED DRAGON, when it was first released in 1981, was a hit among critics but basically unpopular with readers. However, after 1991 this all changed with the release of the film adaption of Thomas Harris' …

The Eight a novel by Katherine Neville
As I make an effort to review every book I read whether good, bad or indifferent, I find myself almost at a loss for words over this one. It has some really interesting pages intermingled with a lot of …

A Caress of Twilight
I eagerly awaited this book, and wasn't disappointed when I finally got it. It follows the first (which was also great) and left me wanting more. Very enjoyable!
reviewed Prey. January 29, 2003
this was highly intersting and suspenceful. Jack is a lovable character, and one roots for him, through this weird ordeal he got himself into. The enemy is hard to evade, since it can be invisible, unless …
reviewed Prey. January 06, 2003
Crichton introduces his cautionary tale of technology run amok with a fairly dire summation of human shortsightedness. "The total system we call the biosphere is so complicated that we cannot know in …
reviewed Intensity. November 27, 2002
First, and foremost, id ignore the negative review written by one of the first people on this page. I dunno what he was smoking when he read the book, and wrote such negative comments, about such an intense …

The Eight a novel by Katherine Neville
In this novel, Katherine Neville writes a fast paced yarn that combines mysticism with an on-going history that spans two centuries from the late 18th during the upheavel of the French Revolution to the …

Gravity: A Novel of Medical Suspense
I found this book terrifying because it could happen. Astronauts trapped in a space station with a life form that is neither bacterial or animal that can enter any orifice of the human body. The creature …
reviewed Gideon. May 15, 2000
First of all- There is not any relationship (or at least from what I saw) between the biblical story and this novel. No fires consuming food or 300 soldiers destroying large armies. What you do have is …

Dark Rivers of the Heart
This is by far Dean Koontz' best book. It has a tear along story line, the obligatory evil people, and the equally important faithful cute dog. It would make a great movie. But importantly, in terms of …
