Ok, I’m old schooling it today with Michael Crichton’s Prey. I really enjoyed this book, it wasn’t the best book I ever read, but it kept me interested.
Jack Forman a scientist in Nevada had just recently been hired by a company that his wife also works for and it’s all very hush hush. Strange things start happening and people start acting out the ordinary. Jack and several of his scientist friends begin to piece together what’s happening and have to figure a way to solve the problem or become prey to an invisible predator.
Prey is the first book I have read by Michael Crichton I’ve also read Andromeda Strain and enjoyed that one too. One thing I love about Crichton is that he is good about his pacing in books. The book starts off normal but really picks up speed as you read on. I liked the mystery that was stumping the scientist and trying to figure out along with them just what was going on, at one point it felt like a race against time. The characters were well rounded and I was rooting for Jack and was wondering what was up with his wife.
