R.I.P. Michael Crichton


So many great literary works, some of which made into halfway decent films. As always, the books are better.

My favorite writer as well. I feel like I should go back and re-read all of this books.

Um, he was an entertaining author but I certainly wouldn't use words like 'great' to describe him.

His books were what I would call 'popcorn' books and it often felt as if you were reading a movie rather than a literary work. And a lot of his later books like Timeline and Prey were pretty poor.

Still, sad to hear he's died though.

I always thought of Crichton as an airplane book writer. He penned novels you would buy at your departure terminal and possibly finish by the time you've reached your arrival, or by the time you're returning home from vacation.

A popcorn writer for sure, but not quite like reading a screenplay like say reading a Dan Brown book.

I hadn't read much by him since I think Jurassic Park. I didn't really care that much to read more. His ideas and use of modern science was always intriguing and it's unfortunate to learn of his passing.
