Review of 'Prey' on 'Goodreads'
Mass Market Paperback, 507 pages
Published Aug. 25, 2003 by Avon Books.
In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles -- micro-robots -- has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.
It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour.
Every attempt to destroy it has failed.
And we are the prey. --back cover
It was okay. Certainly not Crichton's best, but worthy of finishing.
