    Awww, geez. That's so very sad. Yet another talented person taken by illness at such a young age.

    I'm in shock...

    He was one of my favorite Authors...

    I didn't know he was ill.

    I will miss him and looking forward to new books coming out very much.

    So Sad... Such a Loss.

    I always love to read a Crichton novel. My favorites were Eaters of the Dead and Jurassic Park. I love his ability to mix great adventure storytelling with technology and science. I watched ER religiously until about 2002 when it had evolved into something very different from the original. But it was a great show up until that point. I have once of his latest novels, Next sitting by my bed waiting for some free time. I will indulge myself over winter break.
