    "dont push of this book because you saw the movie even though Steven Spielberg done a excellent job with telling the story from the book and not spoiling the book . Micheal Crichton is a great writer and his story telling is complex."

    "Michael Crichton has written a lot of books over his extendedly long career. Twister is probably one of his more famous ones up there with Jurassic Park. It is the original screenplay so it shows everything that was in the movie and things that were probably cut so you get the more complete story."

    "Crichton's writing style is complex, technical, and thrilling... and this book delivers on all points. I enjoyed the exploration of Japanese culture and how it meshes (or doesn't!) with the culture of the United States, and even though it's placed in a time when the Japanese economy was perceived as a much larger threat to the United States, it's not any less thrilling or engaging. Superb writing from one of the greats."

    "Michael Crichton has always excelled at mixing science with fiction, and this is a great example, set in a hospital. The reader is treated to a thrilling story involving multiple characters, but one also comes away with a deeper understanding of medical technology. The history of the hospital is also gone into in great depth, and overall, one leaves the book entertained and educated. "
