Prey Michael Crichton Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Michael Crichton's Prey is a terrifying page-turner that masterfully combines a heart–pounding thriller with cutting-edge technology.
Deep in the Nevada desert, the Xymos Corporation has built a state-of-the-art fabrication plant, surrounded by miles and miles of nothing but cactus and coyotes. Eight people are trapped. A self-replicating swarm of predatory molecules is rapidly evolving outside the plant. Massed together, the molecules form an intelligent organism that is anything but benign. More powerful by the hour, it has targeted the eight scientists as prey. They must stop the swarm before it is too late…
In Prey, Michael Crichton combines scientific brilliance with relentless pacing to create an electrifying, chilling techno-thriller

User reviews about this book
Extremely good book
Michael Crichton is my favorite author and this is my favorite book that I've ever read.
All Time Favorite
Read this book in high school and I was hooked. It has a great plot and interesting story. I read it again recently and it was just as good as I remember.
Amazing and suspenseful
Don’t miss this book! It will have you on the edge of your seat!
Good start. Falls a little flat
By Loyal Fan Tippy
Started off good. But by the time he wraps it up it feels rushed and left me with a slew of questions.
One of the best books I've ever read it had great plot and suspense cut me out I read 40 minutes of it in the bookstore my girlfriend at the time couldn't find me because I normally don't read books that's when I decided to buy the book
If You Like Crichton You'll Want To Read This
Crichton would never be confused for high literature but this definitely has it's place for fans of science speculation. He and Stephen King both have their touch on the pulse on what makes people afraid. Crichton nearly always wrote about science gone wrong, whether it be bad doctors, arrogance among scientists, or in the case of this book a combination of types of hubris.
Even if you lack a science background it all sounds so possible. You don't need to understand genetic algorithms or artificial life nano technology to enjoy this. Sorry he's gone.
I hadn't read a Crichton novel in a while and was glad to find this one before a vacation. I started to read it one night when I couldn't sleep, and then I couldn't put it down. Great read, similar to Sphere in some ways. I loved it. Definitely would recommend it!
Very fun book
