Michael Crichton Dies

I can’t believe this. Michael Crichton is dead. I’ve been reading his books all of my adult life, and also in my teens. I’ve read them a lot of times.

I think I started my Micheal Crichton odyssey with Congo. My mother is an author. She reads tons of books and buys them in bulk. When she likes one, she buys most of this books. That’s what happened with Michael Crichton. But just like Jonathan Kellerman, I owned Crichton. I took the books as mine and read them countless of times.

Congo, The Andromeda Strain, Sphere, Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure, Airframe, Timeline, Prey, and State of Fear. The author died of cancer at the age of 66 last night.
