I'm currently reading Michael Crichton's novel Next, which came out last November. I found it among the new books at the library when I returned some books on Saturday. If you click on the link, you can read the Amazon.com reviews of the book, as well as the publisher's blurb. So far, it's an interesting and thought-provoking book about the ways that genetic engineering is changing our lives and our society, ways that most of us are aware of only dimly if at all. I may write an update on this post when I finish the book.
