Prey...



Prey by Michael Crichton

I haven't read any Crichton in a long time, but I was desperate for a new audiobook, since I knew I was going to be in the car a lot this month - so I grabbed Prey.

What an interesting novel! Crichton really is great at grabbing your attention and pacing it throughout the novel. The only shortcoming is the same as in every novel he writes...he starts off with a bang, hooks you, then launches into a too-complicated science lesson. You nod off, half understanding, until he grabs you again.

This is doubly so with an audiobook!

Still, it was a suspenseful read, and I really enjoyed it!

Note: I listened to the audio edition, narrated by George Wilson. Wilson's pitch and tone were perfect, and he injected a lot of punch, even into the science lesson. A great reader!
