I just finished The Terminal Man, Michael Crichton - Recorded Books. Like all of Crichton's work I have read, this book is fast paced, well researched, and simply told. Unfortunately, I waited too long to discover this book. The story of The Terminal Man revolves around the computer technology of the early 1970s, and the technology references are quite dated. I doubt, for example, most readers would remember why time sharing terminals even existed in the early 70s. If the anachronistic storyline were not problem enough, I found that a stiffly delivered reading performance made this Recorded Books edition uncharacteristically difficult to enjoy.
