Michael Crichton died on Tuesday after what CBS News called “a courageous and private battle against cancer.”
Crichton’s work was certainly not highbrow literature. His books were kin to the pulp fictions of earlier generations. However, his writing had a depth of intelligence and knowledge to it that when reading it one couldn’t help but be challenged by the themes embedded in the stories.
Some of my favorites of Crichton include:
The Andromeda Strain (1969)
Eaters of the Dead (1976)
Jurassic Park (1990)
State of Fear (2004)
I could always count on an enjoyable read when I picked up a Crichton novel. Summer reading won’t be the same.
