The United States government is given a warning by the pre-eminent biophysicists in the country: current sterilization procedures applied to returning space probes may be inadequate to guarantee uncontaminated re-entry to the atmosphere. Two years later, seventeen satellites are sent into the outer fringes of space to "collect organisms and dust for study." One of them falls to earth, landing in a desolate area of Arizona. Twelve miles from the landing site, in the town of Piedmont, a shocking discovery is made: the streets are littered with the dead bodies of the town's inhabitants, as if they dropped dead in their tracks.… (mer)

Barely understood the scientific parts, still a good read. ( )

Fun and fast read, which I probably enjoyed as much, if not more, because of the timing (pandemic). There are major flaws in the plot, and it is not much of a story, but it did hold my interest. And I like the way Crichton mixes together real science and faux science, which I found entertaining. I liked that aspect as a teen as well, but I knew less then, and was perhaps more taken in. I am not sure I will read it again, but am happy to have read it now. ( )

Really this is 2 stars for nihilism/dumbness, 4 stars for being enjoyable to read right now. I can't get over how Crichton--who I really enjoyed reading as a teenager--is such a transparent charlatan. ( )

I never knew much about Michael Crichton before seeing this series on A&E. That made me want to read this and after his death made me want to even more. ( )
  kaballerau | Sep 18, 2020 |
After re-reading this, I don't love it quite as much as I did when I read it as a teen, but I do like it more than I did when I re-read it about 6 years ago. Apparently I am a fickle reader and my enjoyment just depends on the day. ( )

"All yours, Gunner." Wilson did not answer. He dropped his nose, cracked down his flaps, and felt a shudder as the plane sank sickeningly, like a stone, toward the ground. Below him, the area around the town was lighted for hundreds of yards in every direction. He pressed the camera buttons and felt, rather than heard, the vibrating whir of the cameras. For a long moment he continued to fall, and then he shoved the stick forward, and the plane seemed to catch in the air, to grasp, and lift and climb. He had a fleeting glimpse of the main street. He saw bodies, bodies everywhere, spreadeagled, lying in the streets, across cars ... "Jesus," he said. And then he was up, still climbing, bringing the plane around in a slow arc, preparing for the descent into his second run and trying not to think of what he and seen. One of the first rules of air reconnaisssance was "Ignore the scenery"; analysis and evaluation were not the job of the pilot. That was left to the experts, and pilots who forgot this, who became too interested in what they were photgraphing, got into trouble. Usually they crashed.
