Description


En Parque Jurásico Michael Crichton nos enseñó un nuevo mundo terrorífico. En Micro nos descubre un universo demasiado minúsculo para verlo, pero demasiado peligroso para ignorarlo.
 
En la densa selva de Oahu, Hawai, un grupo de científicos de los laboratorios Nanigen MicroTechnologies se dedica a estudiar las drogas naturales presentes en trillones de microorganismos y miles de bacterias con la intención de aprovechar todas las aplicaciones comerciales posibles. Con este fin, Nanigen ficha a siete estudiantes posgraduados para trabajar en sus laboratorios de Hawai. Allí participarán en descubrimientos microbiológicos que jamás hubieran podido siquiera imaginar. Pero una vez en la selva de Oahu, los siete se encontrarán inmersos en un mundo hostil tan peligroso como sorprendente. El único recurso que podrán utilizar será sus conocimientos especializados, que les ayudarán a encauzar las fuerzas de la propia naturaleza.
 
Una novela sensacional, terminada por el prestigioso escritor científico Richard Preston, Micro es un apasionante thriller sobre el fascinante futuro de la microbiología.

About the Author


Michael Crichton has sold over 200 million books, which have been translated into thirty-eight languages; thirteen of his books have been made into films. Also known as a filmmaker and the creator of ER, he remains the only writer to have had the number one book, movie, and TV show simultaneously. At the time of his death in 2008, Crichton was well into the writing of Micro; Richard Preston was selected to complete the novel.

Richard Preston is the internationally bestselling author of eight books, including The Hot Zone and The Wild Trees. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker. He lives with his wife and three children near Princeton, New Jersey.



Through the years, Richard Prestor has amassed a fascinating collection of historic photographs of Milwaukee. This tribute to the author's home town is not meant to be a definitive history of the city, but rather a light-hearted look at the people who made Milwaukee's history. On many personal levels, you will see how people lived, worked, and entertained themselves. Join Mr. Prestor on a fascinating visual journey that brings new life to Milwaukee's history.
