author in this much control of his narrative in this much control of his narrative read this compulsively voraciously rarely coming up for air I can only imagine the inexorable tension I would have experienced had I not seen the movie and therefore knew most of what to expect Even so the whole experience remained thrilling and deliciously unnerving The pacing is pitch perfect each *devastating reveal coming at the exact right moment Who or what Jerry is becomes a maddening puzzle his voice and * reveal coming at the exact right moment Who or what Jerry is becomes a maddening puzzle his voice and as terrifying and memorable as HAL 9000 Very much yada yada humanities vs natural sciences and a wasted plot idea with far too less action and twistsI

High School And Was Oneschool and was one the few times I ve been up nearly all night reading saying to myself every hour I need to o to sleep but then couldn t put it down The movie adaptation was atrocious
so don t judge this story based on the film I always pictured Ted Knight in the roledon t judge this story based on the film I always pictured Ted Knight in the role Ted not Liev Schreiber though Mr Schreiber is a talented actor The story has a very tense claustrophobic feel and rightly *So As The Characters * as the characters trapped at the bottom of the oceanOne of my all time favorite uotes about learning vs experience Do you want to understand how to ride a bicycle or do you want to Dancing with Mr. Darcy get on and start ridingA very fun read 25 stars Was debating whether toive it a 25 or a 3 with the number changing throughout the book Man this was Lukewarm Lackluster Disappointing definitely What I liked Interesting premise that held my attention up until the middle of the book where improbable things start happening and Crichton failed to make them feel real Slightly dry witty style of writing but again made the dialogue really unrealisticWhat I didn t like Terribly written characters Crichton really overdid it on Beth a woman scientist who has inferiority and self esteem issues and talk a lot about how men is constantly being sexist towards her Crichton has managed to make her into a whiny insecure overcompensating person on the issue of her Lesca gender Surely a complex personality can be used as a plot pointportrayal of imperfect womanwhatever he was trying to achieve than a caricature of a feminist which obviously is basically the author s negative impression of them Pop psychology The whole Norman trying to analyze his colleagues but failing because his observations are written by someone who plainly didn t have knowledge of the field If there s anything a psychology student hate than the type of psychology you see on Facebook Unrealistic portra.
