Goodbye, Michael Crichton

November 7, 2008

Michael Crichton, author, producer, director, and doctor, died Tuesday after a long battle with cancer. 

Most of us probably know him as the author of Jurassic Park and creator of ER. I’ve read and loved many of his books – Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Airframe, Sphere, Congo, Eaters of the Dead, The Andromeda Strain, The Great Train Robbery, Disclosure, Rising Sun, Timeline – and give him large credit for my interest in science fiction. I remember being thoroughly scared by Sphere and early awaiting Timeline‘s release. 

Though I haven’t read his three latest books (Prey, State of Fear, Next) after being a little disappointed by Timeline, I’d like to read his last book, to be published posthumously in May. 

What’s your favorite Crichton book?
