BOOK REVIEW: NEXT
Our notions of reality and morality are being challenged daily. Author, Michael Crichton’s new book Next deals with all of these issues and more in a way that will chill, thrill and inform readers of all types. Crichton is that special writer who takes the “hand” of the reader and leads us through the issues surrounding cloning. Of course, in every field of endeavor people and issues are taken advantage of—often with disastrous results.
Next is set up like a movie. It switches from scene to scene.
Science is making great progress solving the great questions that have plagued humanity for generations; but, at what cost? Are people with blonde hair becoming extinct? Are all humans of the same species? Have you ever noticed that a baby chimpanzee resembles a human infant? Is a genetic cure for addiction worse than the actual disease?
You can sell your eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars. You can also check your boyfriend or girlfriend’s genes for illness before you get married! Michael Crichton is that unusual fiction writer. He provides a rather comprehensive bibliography as recommended reading.
Your reality will be changed by this book. Everything that you have always counted on might be challenged!
