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.

The science in this book sounds farfetched and contrived. The author used out of control technology to create the thrill and suspense. Parts of the plot sort of played out like a TV movie. Not a bad read though.read more

Interesting and exciting. A little farfetched but 5 years from now this treatise on nanotechnology is going to make him look like Jules Verne. Good mix of action and technology.

Kinda weird and far-fetched... Interesting and easy to engage in. I wish he'd stop writing with so much "agenda" pushed in... sigh.

Typical Crichton novel, based upon building a thrilling story around a current scientific topic. This time it's nanotechnology and the dangers inherent therein. Educational and entertaining read.
