Micro: A Terrifying Thriller
|by Pavalamani Pragasam|
Finished reading 'Micro', the last novel by Michael Crichton completed by Richard Preston. I feel shell-shocked! Really a terrifying thriller. My awe about science and technology has immensely augmented. I shiver at the horrors that unfolded in the novel holding ominous forecasts about the future of our world and its countries.
Two characters rightly say in the end:
What a ghastly prediction! The black pronouncement sends a chill down the spine. Sounds stunningly true.
Another passage that found full agreement in the novel is the thoughts in the mind of one of the characters described:
An interesting travelogue on the dangerous beauty of Hawaii - loved it tremendously being the hard-core armchair traveller that I am.
Strangely my mind recalled Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels. A vague connection found there!? Perhaps that political satire showed futuristic knowledge of technology unknowingly!
