The Terminal Man is a book that Stephen King convinced me to read. An early effort by Crichton. Interesting but simple, undeveloped and crude

The Terminal Man is a book that Stephen King convinced me to read. I read King's short story called "The Woman In The Room. The story is in King's collection Night Shift and briefly mentions how, according to Crichton, putting wires in people's heads can be a very bad scene. Interesting but simple, undeveloped and crude. The book displays in embryonic form the genre for which Crichton would come to be known - the plausible techno thriller, still in the future, but distinctly possible, with ethical implications for all of humanity.

John Michael Crichton (/ˈkraɪtən/; October 23, 1942 – November 4, 2008) was an American author, screenwriter, and film director and producer. His books have sold over 200 million copies worldwide, and over a dozen have been adapted into films. His literary works are usually within the science fiction, techno-thriller, and medical fiction genres, and heavily feature technology. He had the vague suspicion that somehow he had been the man who had beaten the mechanic to a bloody pulp. That was unthinkable to him, but the nagging suspicion remained. He was referred to the University Hospital.

I read this book many, many years ago. Probably around the time it first came out. I recentley re-read it mainly because I thought I remembered a fact that was brought up in the book and wanted to see if I remembered correctly.

When I first read it, years ago, I did not particularly care for it. However, I really enjoyed it this time . Just goes to show that your taste can change over time, I guess. It is not a long book and it moves pretty fast, and is quite interesting. Although, I did keep wondering why none of these people ever whipped out their cell phones when things went bad. Then I realized that when this book was written, everybody and their baby did not have cell phones like they do now. Having said that, I still felt that the story was great, and except for the absense of cells phones, the story felt very current.

The Terminal Man is a book that Stephen King convinced me to read. I read King's short story called "The Woman In The Room." The story is in King's collection Night Shift and briefly mentions how, according to Crichton, putting wires in people's heads can be a very bad scene. It took me a few years to get to it but I finally did and enjoyed it but not as much as I thought I would. Still, insane scientists and doctors terrify me and experimental surgery is some scary stuff. To show you what I mean, the corny scene from the film Batman and Robin in which Bane is created always gives me chills. You can understand then, if you have seen that humorously aweful film, how this book would effect me. It was a bit short though and, again for Crichton novels, it was anticlimactic in my opinion. A good read nonetheless though, especially for Crichton fans.

Michael is one of my favorite authors but this was not one I enjoyed much. I thought the story was going to be more about the patient but it was more about the doctors. When I read the description I thought there would be more action following the patient. Reading this felt more like reading a science magazine from the late 70's/ early 80's.

This was the only Michael Crichton book I'd not read. A week later and 10 dollars poorer - I wish I'd not looked forward to this so eagerly. As is usual with Crichton's writing there's a faux-science basis, there's enough to keep you turning pages... but not enough. Nothing outstanding, nothing very new, and poor under-developed characters. There was space here to really make an intriguing well fleshed-out story, but it seems like the author either got bored, or was in a hurry to publish.

Yawn.

As with many of Michael Crichton's science fiction novels, this take you places that no other science fiction will take you. In this one, Crichton explores what terrible results could happen if technologists were to upset the delicate balances in the balance of human thought during an attempt at mind control?

Not his longest novel. This one ends a bit abruptly. However, it is a well written and engaging as all of his novels are.

Terminal man is one of Crichton's early novels. His story telling is still excellent but the subject matter is slightly outdated. The story revolves around a patient with a condition that makes him extremely violent, when he experiences a seizure. Neurosurgeons attempt to treat him with "cutting edge technology" but the results are far from ideal. The book is very fast paced and interesting but not what this reader is accustomed to seeing from Crichton.

Not Crichton's best but still a good read.
