2002 Michael Crichton – Prey
Here’s the book I’m currently reading. I’m about half way through, and it’s really good.
I’d been in a sort of a doldrums with finding something to read lately. I kept reading parts of old books I’ve read several times, and yeah, they were good, but after so many times, I just couldn’t finish any of them again. I really don’t like to be without something to read that keeps me interested for awhile, and want to read more every chance I get.
I have tons of books, old ones, and even new ones. The thing is, sometimes I’m in a mood for something, but don’t really know what it is …until I run across some book that will hook me for a few days.
This one I got at a book sale, probably, a long time ago. I hadn’t read it before, and I guess it just hit the right mood at the right time.
So, you can enlarge the photo to see the back cover synopsis, if you want.
Here’s what I’ve figured out so far.
The main character husband has been without a job for awhile, so stays home to care for the children. His wife has a high powered job, and is doing good, But…she starts acting very weird…like nice to everyone one minute, then cross and snappy with her family the next minute.
The baby gets sick.
There’s a super secret scientific lab out in the Nevada desert (the wife works there).
The lab is manufacturing tiny robot cameras. Some of them escape.
That’s as far as I’ve gotten. So…I have to keep reading to find out what happens next.
So, how do you go about finding something new to read? Like me, do you stand in front of your bookshelves, picking up one after another, reading a few words, then going nope, nope, nope, okay I’ll try this one…nope…Hey, this one sounds pretty good. Start reading it, and it turns out that you picked a good one after all! 🙂
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
