The insomnia experienced by the scientists on the island is contagious…. And only by uncovering the sinister truth behind the science can Elisa hope to survive the dark, devouring forces that mean to destroy her and the world she knows. This cadlos tension, those mysterious deaths may remind you of a gorier And Then There Were None to a certain extent.

Song of Ice and Fire: The insomnia experienced by the scientists on the island is contagious… Finally, Zig Zag is not just about physics or maths. View on the Mobile Site.

As in many of Crichton’s novels, the basic lesson of Zig Zag is that man shouldn’t ask too many questions and should leave well enough alone. Terrified, Elisa is now faced with solving the mysterious and gruesome deaths of each member of the team.

Experiment with the very carlod past, to avoid those stronger Impacts? Certainly not common sense.


Trying to meet all your book preview and review needs. But the team’s experiments resulted in something much more frightening and dangerous than any of them could ever have imagined. And, like Crichton, Somoza ‘teaches’ these lessons with an absurd example.
