    more from this reviewer

    A trilling read.

    I had to read this for my English class, and it has really turned me onto his other books. The plot line keeps you guessing until the very end. With very funny characters and awesome one liners it was very entertaining to read.

    Gripping and well-written suspense

    Tom Sanders never thinks about the old days in Cupertino, when he lived for a time with a woman named Meredith Johnson. He's settled happily into his company's Seattle office, has married, and is busy raising a young family. At 41, he's also anticipating the reward for his years of service when his division spins off and goes public. That will certainly secure his financial future, and it just might make him rich. But first he and the company must get through a merger. That may not be easy, because the promotion Tom anticipates goes to - complete surprise - his old girlfriend. To this Tom thinks he can adjust. When Meredith Johnson starts their new relationship with broad references to their old one, and then demands sexual favors, Tom finds out that adjusting won't be possible. What he doesn't know is Meredith's real reason for doing this. If he doesn't discover her hidden agenda in time, the life he treasures now and the future he dreams of for his family will both disappear. And that's if he's lucky. What happens if he isn't lucky? He loses it all. His wife and kids, too. Like Crichton's other books, this one is gripping and well written. However, his stated intention - to show the reader certain truths about sexual harassment by writing the tale in 'role reversal' mode - didn't work for me. Despite meticulous research and a good outward understanding of his subject matter, Crichton's inability to write female characters trips him up this time. The only woman he really 'gets right,' attorney Fernandez, he ruins in the postscript by putting views into her mouth that are at odds (wildly) with her characterization throughout the chapters in which she appears. I agree completely with his pounded in point that women and men are all, in the end, simply people. Individuals, who should no more be stereotyped and expected to behave in certain ways than should Blacks, Hispanics, etc. The trouble is, he works so hard at reversing the stereotypes that he winds up leaving me curiously convinced that in his heart of hearts he still believes in them.

    Nice change from sci-fi for Crichton regulars!

    Pretty nice book. And pretty nice plot. And also found it a refreshing change from his usual sci-fi! True, it involves quite a bit of law and corporate pages (that made me cut a star from the rating) but the drama of the tug-of-war between one man and a whole company is pretty exciting. And for a change, the male is at the receiving end in a women's lib era. Read it in one sitting...sure deprived me of the whole night's sleep, but was worth it!

    Overall, Good Book

    I just finished this book today, and I must say that it kept me on my toes. It had many suspenseful moments that kept the pages turning. The only downside to this book would have to be the ending in which I thought there should have been more Meredith-degrading at the end. I was really looking forward to hearing the exec's reactions to Meredith's actions - oh well, I'm over it - I recommend it!

    Reverse Sexual Harrassment

    A man expecting to be promoted to VP of his company, is surprised when his former subordinate and ex-mistress gets tabbed for the VP post. A power struggle takes place, and the new female VP tries to nail her former boss and current employee for sexual harrassment when he rebuffs her advances. Fast-paced with a couple of good plot twists.

    Must Read This

    I thought this book was a very mature read. I know that Mr. Chriton wrote this and it is a must read
