First off, I read the audio book after seeing a friend's review. Do not like many of the New York voices of the reader, so I will seek out a different way to read subsequent books. Second, it seems the authors planned for a sequel, but not necessarily a series. Either that or they just like a quirky ending. Finally, the book. I liked the science and the nearly 20 year old computer descriptions, plus the hubris of the museum characters. I'm not sure there was quite enough put into the politics there, or maybe I just missed some subtle hints. Unlike my friend, I have *not* seen the movie, so will seek that out soon.
