    Just found this board... Any Michael Crichton fans?

    I like his books. A little too mainstream, but good nonetheless.

    I've liked a couple of his books - Rising Sun, Congo (both made into terrible movies, by the way)...

    I must've missed the movies. One of my favorites is Airframe. You either love it or hate it, I guess I like it because I'm kind of into Aviation.
    English side... ruined! Must use French directions. Le Grille?! What the hell is that?!

    I really liked Travels. It's non-fiction. One of the few non-fiction books I've read. I've about worn out my paperback.

    I loved time line and they are making the movie, which, I hope is better than the others they have made into movies. Although they did a good job w/jurrasic park.

    Crichton's latest, Prey, was not too terrible.

    It's not easy to do a novel set in Silicon Valley without making the area sound like a Blade Runner, futurist locale. (Trust me--it's not.) Crichton, however, pulled it off realistically.

    If you liked Disclosure, you may like Prey. But unless you're really hard-up for a beach book and have nothing else to grab off the shelf, wait for the paperback.

    Oh, and hello Firegirl, John and glennajo. And hello to you, Thunderstruck.

    I've enjoyed all of the books I've read so far. I really liked 'Airframe' as well... gotta love it whenever a seemingly beat-down employee conquers the corporate big-wigs.
