He died of cancer yesterday. What was your favorite Crichton book? I admit not to reading all of them, The Andromeda Strain(Which BTW the 1971 version is on television as I type this post.) might be my choice. Disclosure would be at the other end. The AP article makes a goof and calls Crichton's 2004 novel State of Fear, State of Favor. Maybe Hillel Italie became unhinged due to the book's presentation of Global Warming. I doubt the error about how long a tsunami in the novel would take to reach the shore was caught by many people(besides me). The AP article did tell me Crichton was 6'9, something I didn't know.
Thank you for all the great books Michael Crichton and RIP.
