Reflections on books, faith, and life
"Prey" by Michael Crichton. If I saw it as a movie I bet I'd love it. It's loaded with science, suspense and action. It's a story about people making artificial intelligence, but in print, it might as well be a story about robots making artificial intelligence. The characters do not develop and you end up feeling just as sorry for them at the end as you did at the beginning. A threat is averted and a city spared but nobody seems transformed by the experience. I guess I more admire Christian fiction authors because they better understand that characters can grow in ways that matter.
