Jurassic Park - Michael Crichton

Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying the book so far, but I really object to scientists being depicted as self-absorbed, immoral people willing to take money from anyone to further their "dangerous" research.  The scientists that I know are personable and highly moral and carefully consider their sources of funding.

 

Fiction like this, as much fun as it is, contributes to the whole distrust of science that seems to be running rampant these days.

 

Rant over.
