A great read! I've learned more about genetics
now than I thought I wanted to know. But I'm
glad I do know now! Crichton starts with the note
"This is a work of fiction. Except those parts that
are fact." And the facts are woven throughout the
story. I didn't realize Universities and companies
were getting patents on specific genes. This is going
to lead to a nightmare of events (and indeed probably
already is for some!).
I love the talking parrot (Gerald) and hope for this
character alone that they film this novel.
