How is it? Has anyone read it yet?

I want to read it, but it's only available in hardcover for the time being and I dont want to spend that kind of money. I also dont want to rent it from the library because reading a book from a library is like having sex with a hooker (to me) it feels dirty.

I picked it up at the airport on my way out here to North Carolina a few weeks ago. I personally don't think it's as good as his other works but I haven't even finished it yet. It got pretty boring pretty fast. There are alot of characters who's paths don't ever seem to cross, so each chapter is a continuation of a story from a few chapters earlier. I personally just can't get into it. I've read almost all of crichtons books and this one seems to be the worst so far.

But ya i'm dissapointed so far. I've finished a few other books since I started Next. Which is really sad because I usually can't put down anything he writes.
