Prey (2002)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
12.08.02

Prey (2002) PREY (2002): Michael Crichton's new book is a good, quick read, a cautionary tale dealing with nano-technology. Nano-technology is creating microscopic machines to perform certain functions, such as unclogging arteries in heart-attack victims or being used as miniature cameras to get into places never accessible before. A group of scientists in the Nevada desert, working for a big corporation, has seemingly made some huge breakthroughs in creating these nanoparticles... but it's because they took hazardous shortcuts, which leads to some of the miniature robots escaping. Here, they start forming swarms (like bees) and are seemingly alive. They start killing animals-and soon humans. As one scientist races to find out why this has happened, he uncovers that some of the people he is working with, including his wife, have unleashed them on purpose.
Because the swarming nanites aren't the only type that has escaped.
This is a fascinating book. On one hand you feel like you're watching a program on the Discovery Channel and at the same time you're on the edge of your seat because Crichton's depiction of these new, plausible creatures is extremely threatening. This is much more a horror than sci-fi book.
