I'm not a fan of the "lost" manuscript concept. This book is one I couldn't resist reading because of how much I've enjoyed Crichton's books in the past, but I can't help but think that if he'd finished it and was proud of it, it would have been published, or on the way to being published, prior to his death.

He's always good for a fun story though, even if it's not exactly high literature, so I'm hoping that he worked out enough of the plot here to keep me happy.

I haven't read enough of the book yet to know if it feels like a regular Crichton book -- but I admit when I first saw it in the store that I suspected it had a completely different author and that they were just using his name to sell books. Kind of like that whole scam of a series of Tom Clancy books where they have his name in 5 inch letters on the cover but when you pick it up it says in "created by" and it has a totally different author.
