"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." "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."--BOOK JACKET.

Not like his other work where there's depth and cohesion. This book is a mess of random thoughts, characters, and storylines strung together.

A well told exciting story that totally had my attention and he gives the reader some serious issues to think about. One of his best books.

As always, the science in his books is flawless but the writing left a lot to be desired. It felt like the book was put together overnight from a pile of notes

Another great Crichton novel. Not his best, but still a good read.

Well thought-out and researched thriller, but the ending seemed stilted. Still a worthwhile read.
