Review:

"Provocative and entertaining." -- Calgary Sun

"It is devilishly clever...thoroughly enjoyable." -- Aberdeen Press & Journal [Scotland]

"Wonderful...NEXT's a regular romp." -- Evening Standard (UK)

"Crichton has created a series of vivid, thought-provoking morality plays, presenting key questions engendered by genetic research."--Globe and Mail (Toronto)

"A complex and credible extension of present reality into the realm of the imagination. A highly readable novel."--South China Morning Post

"It is devilishly clever...thoroughly enjoyable."--Aberdeen Press & Journal [Scotland]

"[NEXT] is a tribute to Crichton's storytelling skill...the docmentation he sprinkles throughout the narrative teases us with speculation."--Los Angeles Times

"Crichton sets up mind-boggling scenarios. The pace and intrigue last to the final page."--News of the World (UK)

"Under Crichton's imaginative scrutiny, body-part theft, the extinction of blonds and transgenic experiments...all loom on the horizon."--People

"You realize what [Crichton]'s fictionalizing could be happening now, not "Next." And that's what makes it all so terrifying."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

From the Publisher:

Devishly clever, NEXT blends fact and fiction into a
breathless tale of a new world where nothing is as it seems and a set of
new possibilities can open at every turn.
NEXT challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing
the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, NEXT
shatters our assumptions and revels shocking new choices where we least
expect.
The future is Closer Than You Think.

Book Description Harper, United States, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Is a loved one missing some body parts? Are blondes becoming extinct? Is everyone at your dinner table of the same species? Humans and chimpanzees differ in only 400 genes; is that why a chimp fetus resembles a human being? And should that worry us? There s a new genetic cure for drug addiction--is it worse than the disease? We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps, a time when it s possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars and to test our spouses for genetic maladies. We live in a time when one fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else, and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes . . . Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and the bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.
