Famous author and writer Michael Crichton has passed away in Los Angeles, he was 66. He has been battling cancer privately for quite some time now. He is the author of best selling novels such as “Jurassic Park”, “Timeline” and “The Andromeda Strain”.
Many of his novels were made into major movies which Steven Spielberg directed the first two Jurassic Park movies, they became the biggest movies of all time. Crichton’s novel “Congo” was also made into a film. Crichton’s work became a huge influence to many readers out there especially high school students. While Crichton’s books were mostly fiction, he still had a lot of reality and education in his storytelling.
Oh no, another great talent gone. 😦 Crichton was one of my favorite writers, I used to read his books all the time back in high school. RIP Michael.
