Michael Crichton Dies of Cancer


Somehow, I missed this news. He died of cancer on November 4th. This was a complete surprise for me. I have read many of his books, enjoyed some, and panned some. I particularly enjoyed the scientific / technological angle that he provided in most of his novels. Did not enjoy the predictability factor as much.

Wikipedia has a good biography of him, a listing of his works, as well as the techniques that he employed while writing his books. An interesting read…

  • I think I liked Prey the most, and also the Jurassic Park series 🙂

  • I missed this too… don’t know how. I have had the paper all to myself with my husband traveling.

    Of all his books, I loved The Great Train Robbery the best. What was yours?
