Michael Crichton has died at 66

I can't believe it! I've read all of his books as well as watched ER for years.

I saw the headline earlier but hadn't read the article yet. That's a shame. He wasn't very old either.

I like his stuff! I love the original Jurassic Park, Twister and Congo.

Oh, I didn't know what kind of cancer. I hope his passing was easy and I sure will miss him.

I grew up reading his books. He'll be missed.

So sad. He was so talented and his work will be missed. I really enjoyed his writing. R.I.P., Michael. You and Buck will have plenty to discuss.
