MICRO by Michael Crichton & Richard Preston

Helen selected Michael Crichton's last novel (completed by Richard Preston) for our June gathering. Helen will also lead the discussion.

Book description:
In the locked office of a Honolulu building, three men are found dead, with no sign of struggle except for ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts covering their bodies.

In the lush rain forests of Oahu, groundbreaking technology has ushered in a revolutionary era of biological prospecting. Here, seven brilliant graduate students recruited by a pioneering microbiology start-up company are thrust into a hostile wilderness that reveals profound and surprising dangers at every turn. Prey to a technology of radical and unbridled power—armed only with their knowledge of the natural world—they must harness the inherent forces of nature itself to survive.

    Murphy (my dog) was hit by a car & required stitches & is having to take meds every 2 hours. He's not feeling well at all. My daughter is on vacation so she can't watch him. So it looks like I am gonna have to bail on tonight. Have a great discussion

    I miss y'all!

    I bought a small lawn mowing company a month ago and my life has been crazy. I'm on a mower all day and doing paperwork late into the night.

    There's no way I will read the book before the meeting, but there is now way I'm going to miss my friends for another month!

    Can't wait to see y'all!

      Can you go back in and change your rsvp from June to May? Or perhaps you've already done that?

      Not quite, but almost. Our meetings have been all women and me. So there's a bit of a male perspective. Which is sometimes welcome!

      Just so you know Jenny...the wine list isn't too impressive at Zio's. They have some adequate wines, but nothing too exciting. We've met there for awhile though, because they've treated us so well and just bend over backwards to accommodate us. Still, I've been looking around for alternate locations that have some more interesting wines and also the facility and service that might work for us.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
