NEXTWritten clearly with an eye to being the next Hollywood blockbuster, Michael Crichton with his latest novel NEXT has made a bold foray into the world of genetic engineering.

Blending fact and fiction, Crichton has packed in data that startles which he weaves into loosely linked subplots, spinning a breathless tale that challenges our sense of reality. Though cast differently from the high octane stories we’ve come to expect from this amazing writer, NEXT with its amalgam of the comic and the bizarre, the frightening and the sensational, holds the reader’s attention to the very end.

The novel begins on an exciting note. Vasco Borden, private investigator and fugitive recovery specialist, hot on the heels of fugitive Eldo Tolman, is all set to zero in on him before Tolman is about to be seduced by a Russian hooker. In Tolman’s hand is a container of stolen embryos. A short while later, Tolman trapped in an elevator, ends up dead, smothered by the nitrogen that escapes from the container.

Friendship is...There was a cute nude couple, back in the 1970s, that was used to adorn popular merchandise like mugs and sheets, greeting cards and underwear. This was a series called ‘Love Is…’ Today, when friends are taking the place of family, and friendship is becoming the means to survive in the city for a lot of young professionals, this series can easily be re-written as ‘Friendship Is…’ Here are some of my definitions, and I look forward to some of yours:

Terror within four wallsOne day Sayali had bruised her arm when she fell on the stairs going up to her home. The very next week she had a red and swollen area around her ear. “An insect bit me during the night,” she explained to her colleagues. “I couldn’t even see what it was.” When she came to work with what looked like a cigarette burn on the side of her neck, her friends could take it no more. “Stop lying to us,” they said. “Doesn’t he beat you up? Isn’t that the real cause of all these hurts?” A sobbing Sayali just sat in her office chair and put her head down in defeat. She had been married for only two years, and employed for just four months. Her fervent attempts at covering up were futile when her colleagues could clearly see the cause of her misery – domestic violence.

StressDuty and responsibility sit heavily on most of us. Each day we wake up with a long list of tasks to accomplish, and the mere memory of these is enough to put a cumulative weight on us that we term as ‘stress’. Stress comes when we know we should be doing something, are struggling to do it, facing obstacles, as well as the diminishing desire for the job in the first place. If all the work that were required from us was something that we loved to do, would we face stress? Stress builds up more when the job we are required to do becomes less and less likeable.

Pinning Him DownAs she washed her hair, she was thinking, “Will one more Sunday pass without achieving a single thing?” This question may have sounded strange echoing in the head of one who was so calm, collected and efficient in her office that she had earned the nickname ‘Guru’ among her colleagues. But it wasn’t that she was worried about her own achievements. She was instead thinking about what they – her husband and her would achieve as a couple on a holiday.

When she came out of her bath, her prophecy looked in danger of coming true. He lay sprawled on the floor with a cushion, watching the cricket match on their new LCD TV. As she passed by, smelling of soap and shampoo, he held out his arms invitingly. She smiled, but wasn’t tempted. Gone were those early days of marriage when even the sight of his disheveled hair, his rumpled T shirt in bed, was enough to make her feel a rush of tenderness. Now, instead, there was a tightening in her stomach as she thought, “Its eleven o’ clock. Will he ever get around to remembering the tubelight that has to be changed in the spare bedroom?”
