Jurassic Park (book)
The movie was superior, the visual appearance of the dinosaurs could not be matched by print.

Michael Crichton
One of the great authors of soft sci-fi. He put a lot of obvious scientific research into his work and told stories which were compelling and suspenseful and frequently questioned what the potential downsides …

I saw the movie before reading the book. The book was better--more logical, more self-consistent, and a much better ending.

I was in 6th grade when I read this book and I had a hard time getting into it. Maybe a I was a little too young.

I enjoyed the book and the movie. An extremely creative look at time travel -- and the paradoxes involved.

Pros: Excellent read, impossible to put down after you start      Cons: The ending lost it's form and just became very sequential.      The Bottom Line: This …

   I have to say I was very pleased with Jurassic Park. I have been a long time fan of the Steven Spielberg film, but I can honestly say the movie comes up way short compared to the book. The …

The 13th Warrior by Michael Crichton
Written like a "discovered manuscript," providing an exceptional ethnography of the time. Crichton re-tells "Beowulf" through the eyes of someone more like us westerners. Excellent storytelling.

The 13th Warrior by Michael Crichton
I first came to this story when I was very young. I remember seeing a trailer for a movie which was all about vikings, and begging my parents to let me go see it. When we did, it was what I had expected, …

Timeline essentially uses time travel as a device to thrust modern humans into the medieval past to write an action adventure story in that setting. It begins, for all intents and purposes, when a group …

Cricton'swbest work, by far, of what happens when man tries his hand t being God. and the dangers inherent with it. Great good and evil characters.

One of Crichton's best. Opens a fascinating door into the past, both technologically (the time travel aspect) and culturally (a glimpse of what it might really have been like, based upon lots of research). …

Jurassic Park (book)
Crichton's forte was the science of "twenty minutes into the future" -- modern tech with just a little step added to make the impossible believable. He's at the top of his game in this neo-dinosaur thriller …

Chricton traded the old story of the elephants burial ground and the glory of ivory for some monkeys and diamonds. good adaptive tell

I found this book really interesting. I found deviation from the scientific (that Crichton focuses most of his books around) to the historic refreshing and intriguing. There is no lack of science, but …

An interesting book from Michael Crichton, but does not draw you in as much as some of the other things he has written.

Congo
Like much of Chrichton's work, a solidly-researched, fast-moving tale that is just a half-step away from being reality. Intriguing and satisfying. Great summer reading.
