The Terminal Man by Michael Crichton
The Terminal Man

Falk2, February 16, 2009

The Terminal Man is one of Michael Crichton's very first novels. I couldn’t enjoy this book because there is a lot of technical (scientific) talk which only brain surgeons would understand. I’m definitely not a science person, so it was sometimes hard for me to understand what was going on. The characters are not developed well, and it took a while to remember who was who (there are many doctors in the story). If you are really, really interested in science or good at science, I would strongly recommend you to read The Terminal Man. Crichton is a talented author, and I recommend you (not scientific people) to read his other books, such as Jurassic Park!
