Re: R.I.P. Michael Crichton
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.
