AirframeAirframe by Michael Crichton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If you think you will find “Airframe” like any other novels or movies about airplane crash, then you wrong, the drama and main-plot about Airframe were during AFTER the airplane incident, not during or before it.

so basically it was more like “Air plane Crash investigation” conducted by several people who worked at the Norton Aircraft who built that airplane. the main protagonist was Casey Singelton, mid-thirties, single-mom, control-freak, unfashionable and always follow by the rules.

Casey who was one of the top executive in that company, at beginning, already smelled something fishy about that incident, so she digged up all the evidence, unaware that some people in her company who watched all her steps, and did something to prevent her finding a fact about that incident.

I gave 3 of 5 stars for this novel, though I really enjoyed this novel very much, (actually one of Crichton best novel since “Congo”) but the plot was a bit boring at the middle of the novel, so I skipped it and really enjoyed the dramas at the end part of this novel.

So Airframe is an enjoyable, non-serious reading for weekend, and I really glad I read this novel !

Congo – michael crichton

CongoCongo by Michael Crichton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

this is the very first book of Michael Crichton that I read, now I know why his books were always best sellers, the intense and non-stop plots would never get me bored, it’s a kind of book that i can’t put down until i finish it ! Crichton is truly a genius, he wrote books with meticulous researches, and those technologies that mentions in this book…..OMG, they had digital camera in that dinosaur era ! talking about living in 70s ? and communicating with intranet ? wow, awesome !

what I like about the way Crichton applied those IT things in his book that it didn’t sound cheesy or awkward, even if I read in this era, unlike other science-fiction books, it was just right and normal. nothing more or less.

somehow I hope there’s a remake from the old movie, because the plot of this book is very interesting, and the “bad-ass” are not dinosaurs or aliens, but just ordinary monkeys who got trained to kill human. tee-hee :mrgreen:
