Beschreibung

An instant classic in the vein of Jurassic Park, this boundary-pushing novel has all the hallmarks of Michael Crichton’s greatest adventures with its combination of pulse-pounding thrills, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research.
Three men are found dead in a locked second-floor office in Honolulu. There is no sign of struggle, though their bodies are covered in ultra-fine, razor-sharp cuts. With no evidence, the police dismiss it as a bizarre suicide pact. But the murder weapon is still in the room, almost invisible to the human eye. In Cambridge, Massachusetts, seven graduate students at the forefront of their fields are recruited by a pioneering microbiology start-up company. Nanigen MicroTechnologies sends them to a mysterious laboratory in Hawaii, where they are promised access to tools that will open up a whole new scientific frontier. But this opportunity of a lifetime will teach them the true cost of existing at the cutting-edge…The group becomes prey to a technology of radical, unimaginable power and is thrust out into the teeming rainforest. Armed only with their knowledge of the natural world, the young scientists face a hostile wilderness that threatens danger at every turn. To survive, they must harness the awe-inspiring creative – and destructive – forces of nature itself.

Great story

Makes you start to think about all the creepy-crawlies and shows how brutal nature really is - even if it looks nice. A very good "hear".

Naja...

...von beiden Autoren gibt es besseres! Von der Idee her nicht schlecht und gute Erklärungen der "Mikrowelt" (wenn auch die Dialoge etwas schulmeisterlich sind), teilweise sogar spannende Schilderung von Natur gegen Minimensch, aber keiner der Protagonisten ist wirklich sympathisch und insgesamt lässt einen die Geschichte relativ kalt! Der Sprecher ist nicht schlecht, schafft es aber auch nicht, einen in die Geschichte "mitzunehmen".
