Best known as the author of The Andromedia Strain and Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton is the award-winning, bestselling author dubbed "the father of the techno-thriller."

I'm an avid reader as well as a writer. Michael Crichton is at the top of the pyramid. Jurassic Park is his best, in my opinion (But it's so hard to choose!). His screenplays (Coma, Twister) as well as his books are masterpieces of pacing, characterization, and compelling suspense. A Case of Need was the movie The Carey Treatment, a great suspense movie of the 70s. I didn't know who wrote the book then but was not surprised to learn it was Crichton.

I can't believe there's only one message here!! I just read Sphere............ WOW! It was intense. I couldn't put it down. One of the best I've read in a long time by anybody. And I read a novel every week or two, mostly mysteries or sci-fi. Since I tend to find a good author and read everything she/he has written, I guess now I have to find all of Crichton's works and get busy.

Hope more people add to this one!

I can't believe there are no other posts than these!

This is an author with staying power.

From A Case of Need to ER, he has an excellent reputation, and I can't wait for his next book.

I have read all of his books and have enjoyed congo, sphere, and jurassic park the most. There is always an interesting and unpredictibality about his writing. It makes you keep turning the pages. `

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade but I noticed that the books you mostly mentioned by name were the science fiction related novels (i.e. Jurassic Park and Spere).

While I like Jurassic Park, I find the only novels of his I am able to truly enjoy are the science fiction ones.

I have tried reading the others like Airframe and Disclosure. I found that the only emotions that he seems to write about are fear and anger. These work really well in science fiction, when everything the characters see or encounter is new, but not as well when the charaters are trying to deal with serious problems in their "real" life.

From now on, I will stick to his science fiction work.

Would anyone explain me the mechanic system of the time machine in Timeline? Remember, I'm a foreigner

have started reading Crichton very late,only after when i had seen some movies based on his novels.no wonder the first crichton novel i read was 'the lost world' ,and after that i read 'sphere''disclosure' and 'jurassic park'though i had already seen their movie adaptation..and i must say no movie come close to penned versions.

crichton is truly brilliant ,the way he handles every subject it appears as he is master of that field his novels not only have entertainment value but reading each novel is a learning experience. he is incomparable!!

I got my Nemesis pregnant!

I recently read Timeline. Once again Crichton makes the unbelievable, believable...at least for time your immersed in the book. I can always find something in a book I've read that I don't like and this one is no different, nonetheless this is a great read.

I give it 4 cyanide pills out of a potential 5!

I recently have read the book Airframe by Michael and it was fascinating..For those of you who have read the book and enjoyed it, he is currently working on making Airframe into a movie.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!
