This is Michael Crichton's biggest achievement, according to me. I think the way he describes human flaws and thus our mistakes in science is just magnificent. I like the way the character's control are slipping through their hands and that fact that they refuse to acknowledge it, until it's too late. That proves we have no idea what we're getting ourselves into, most of the time, and therefore we should be really careful not to play God. Not that I don't like science. I'm impressed with it in every way. But sometimes, concerning experiments, cloning, viruses, sending messages into space and god knows what else, we should consider the repercussions before we dive into it.
