Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This gives all bloggers a chance to talk about the books that they are most excited for to come on sale.

This weeks WoW pick is...


Micro by Michael Crichton

Goodreads Synopsis
Three men are found dead in the locked second-floor office of a Honolulu building, with no sign of struggle except for the ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts covering their bodies. The only clue left behind is a tiny bladed robot, nearly invisible to the human eye.

In the lush forests of Oahu, groundbreaking technology has ushered in a revolutionary era of biological prospecting. Trillions of microorganisms, tens of thousands of bacteria species, are being discovered; they are feeding a search for priceless drugs and applications on a scale beyond anything previously imagined.

In Cambridge, Massachusetts, seven graduate students at the forefront of their fields are recruited by a pioneering microbiology start-up. Nanigen MicroTechnologies dispatches the group to a mysterious lab in Hawaii, where they are promised access to tools that will open a whole new scientific frontier.

But once in the Oahu rain forest, the scientists are thrust into a hostile wilderness that reveals profound and surprising dangers at every turn. Armed only with their knowledge of the natural world, they find themselves prey to a technology of radical and unbridled power. To survive, they must harness the inherent forces of nature itself.

Why
I absolutely love anything by Michael Crichton. He was a great science fiction writer and could really capture a reader's attention. All the interesting science information he writes about, and add in the mystery. His books are amazing! Plus I would love to read his last book that he wrote (though it's sad).

What are you waiting for today?

Great pick! I really want to read this one but reading it means there will be no more Michael Crichton :(

I don't usually read adult novels in this genre but Mirco sounds like a good mix of mystery and technological advances. Thanks for visiting my blog! :)

I'm really intrigued by this synopsis! I'll have to check this one out.

Unfortunately, the only Crichton I've read so far is Jurassic Park, although I do have a copy of Timeline I wanna read one of these days :)

Whoooa, first time hearing of this! Not something I would read, but nonetheless sounds neat!
