Im not really into techno-thrillers so I never read Michael Crichton, but apparently he was way above the rest in the genre.
Read Jurassic Park. That book defined him.
Trivia bit: did you know the beginning of Jurassic Park 2 (the movie) was actually from Jurassic Park (the book)?This comment was edited on Nov 6, 2008, 23:24.
